Celine Ramseyer graduated from BA (Hons) Live Events and Television (now BA (Hons) Television and Live Events Production) at London College of Communication.
Where in the world are you from?
What inspired you to pursue a career in the field?
I've always liked entertainment - sport, tv and music in particular. When I finished my apprenticeship back home, I did an internship at Radio Television of Switzerland and this experience made me realise that I wanted to work in this industry.
What was your favourite project during the course?
I actually have two favourite projects. I absolutely loved the collaborative project with BA (Hons) Film and Television, called "House Project". This helped me realise that I wanted to produce.
The second one was my Final Major Project. I wanted to link my two passions, sport and production, so I got in touch with British Fencing. Together we made a promotional video with two members of their Sabre Olympic Team. (Link to video https://mydonate.bt.com/events/fundfencing/467151)
What was your highlight of studying at London College of Communication?
Meeting people from so many different backgrounds and making my own projects.
Why would you recommend studying this course to prospective students?
This course is perfect for students who have just finished their A-Levels and want a taste of live events and television production. You’re able to try out different aspects of production and this really helps you figure out what you want to do.
What are your plans for the future?
My plan is to gain experience in production, hopefully in sport or commercial related. My ultimate goal is to work, in a way or another, at the Paralympic and Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.
Finally, what advice would you give to first year BA (Hons) Television and Live Events Production students?
To find part-time or freelance opportunities in the industry whilst studying. Try and make as many contacts as possible before you reach your final year. Don’t forget to update your CV when you gain new skills and experience.
My final piece of advice is do not work for free if all the members of the production are being paid (unless it's a work experience - max 2 week!)
