Matthew Bourne

Media & Communication

Personal statement

Hi! I'm Matt, now I could tell you about how I am coming to the end of my Media and Communications degree at Birmingham City University, but everyone is doing that, for me the media is all about storytelling, whether you are filming a television show, writing a journal article or designing a website, a story is being told and this is my chance to tell you mine, so let me begin!

I would best describe myself as a hardworking and passionate individual, but within the media context I would identify myself as a digital creator, my love for the digital industries has rapidly grown and has helped me establish a career path for myself. By specialising in graphic design, web design, web development and video editing, I am doing what I love and have grown in both confidence and ability to produce high-quality content. I have also been fortunate to have gained valuable industry experience with a variety of companies such as Method in Motion, a video production firm based in Birmingham, and Worcester Web Studio, a web development and digital marketing firm based in Worcester. These opportunities have provided both a platform for me to grow from and a vision to aim for as I continue to develop as a media professional.

Looking to the future, it excites me to be a part of this ever-changing industry and to see where it will go in the years to come. With graduation looming, I am now looking at kickstarting my career as a media professional seeking both freelance opportunities and permanent positions within the digital sector. My preference would be to work in the web design and development areas but I am always open to new opportunities, chances to learn and broaden my skillset with the ultimate aim of becoming fully accredited in Adobe software and creating innovative content for well-known organisations. Lets see what the next chapter of my story has to offer!
