Adrian Larkin (Film & Moving Image, 2007)

Adrian Larkin (Film & Moving Image, 2007)

Adrian Larkin graduated from Leeds Met in June 2007 with a Masters degree in Film and Moving Image Production

The knowledge and skills that he developed when studying for this degree helped him to launch a video media productions company called True Media in January 2008, providing a full video production service from concepts, script development, storyboarding, production, post production, special FX, graphics, DVD authoring and delivery.

In December 2007, True Media was awarded the Business Start-Up Proof of Concept grant that offers new businesses up to £1000 to test the feasibility of their ideas. The money was used to promote True Media, including the design of a new website.

Adrian was granted a scholarship to study for a master's degree which part paid his tuition fees, however, he funded the rest himself, meaning that all the money he earned through part-time work was going towards his degree and not his business. Therefore, Business Start- Up's free advice and funding allowed Adrian to produce his website, which was the reason he was able to start trading

Adrian currently uses the innovation showcase in Leeds Met, taking full advantage of the professional work environment and city centre address. For more information on the innovation showcase go to:
