BA (Hons) Media Arts graduate Danny Cooke has shot and edited documentaries, including the award winning ‘Ray: A Life Underwater’. He also won the award for Outstanding Student at the 2012 Vice-Chancellor’s Enterprise Awards.
“My passion for film began when I was about 13 but I have always been interested in media of various kinds. The BA (Hons) Media Arts course supports all factors of media, while allowing you to focus on your particular area of interest, which in my case is film making and documentary. BA (Hons) Media Arts has helped me to channel my existing skills as well as developing new ones. It has led to some fantastic opportunities and new contacts which will make a great difference to my career.
The course encourages you to take your work beyond the University and I engaged in a number of professional film projects during my time at Plymouth. In my second year I was Editor and Director of Photography on the documentary Ray: A Life Underwater. This documentary has had amazing success internationally and has been screened on Channel 4.
