Ones to watch!

Posted on 22nd August 2016

Two of our Media graduates have been recognized by the Edinburgh International Television Festival’s talent scheme.

The famous festival’s Ones to Watch scheme celebrates aspiring talent in the television industry.

This year our graduates Ainsley Cannon and Sunny Kang have been named on this prestigious list.

Ainsley has worked at the BBC and now works as a director and associate producer for Talkback productions.

Sunny has worked for the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5 and now works as a director for Nine Lives Media. Since graduating, Sunny has visited our department – along with his boss Cat Lewis, the CEO of Nine Lives Media – to talk with our students about careers in the media.

Head of Media, Dr Alec Charles said: “It’s brilliant to see the talents of our graduates being celebrated by such a major international media showcase. Both Ainsley and Sunny massively deserve this great recognition.”
