Samantha Reeve

Samantha completed a BND in Media coming out with Distinction grades here at GYC; before the FdA was in place; and then went off to Lincoln University to graduate with a BA in TV production in 2010. She did some work experience whilst with us filming the theatre shows and college events. She went to a London media house for work experience as part of her Uni course. For the last 3 years she has been working in Peterborough at Create and craft TV – a major shopping channel TV production company.

Her tutor Phil Bury said “She was always a keen and enthusiastic student and it comes as no surprise that she has found a good production based job at the TV production company”.
