My career as a grip specialist kicked off as a result of a contact I got through one of my lecturers
Since graduating from UCEN Manchester's FDA Film and TV Production, Sean has worked hit films such as Paddington 2, Mary Poppins and London Has Fallen, as well as TV shows including the BBC’s The A Word. He says he owes his break in the industry to the contacts he made here.
“The lecturers really know what they’re doing and can bring the best out of people. The course is packed with people from the industry coming in to work with you, rather than you just learning from textbooks.
My career as a grip specialist kicked off as a result of a contact I got through one of my lecturers, and I’ve had a really busy career so far.
"When I came to UCEN Manchester at 17, there were a lot of things I wanted to do, but the course made it seem genuinely achievable for me."
