The talk provided Creative Media Production (TV and Film) UAL Level 3 students with an insight into what it is like to work on such high profile films and television series, including the hard work and organisation that goes into the job.

Nick’s niece, Izzy Simmonds is a Media student on the course at RuTC and arranged for him to come and speak to her classmates. Izzy says: “My uncle has been my inspiration for studying media, so it was great that he was up for coming in and speaking to my classmates about his work. It was surreal to see him speaking to my friends at college, but I am proud of what he does and I hope my classmates got a lot out of it. When I finish at RuTC, I would like to follow in my uncle’s footsteps.”
