Since graduating from Brooksby Melton College last September, Jai Masters and James Hazeldine have begun an exciting business venture with their new video production company, Kudegra Productions.
The company, established in 2017, specialises in producing high quality video media in 4K Ultra HD, including wedding, corporate and promotional videos.
James and Jai began their Digital Media studies at BMC in 2012, when they embarked on their Level 3 in Film and TV Production. They then went on to complete their BA Digital Production Degrees at the College from 2014 – 2017.
When talking about his time at BMC, James said ‘Having studied at BMC since 2012, we have witnessed the huge improvement in facilities and equipment over the years. When we started we were using basic video tapes, but by the time we graduated with our degrees in 2017, the equipment had evolved to include a green screen and a black magic camera!
As well as learning to use a wide range of equipment, I also learnt other valuable skills from my time at BMC, such as how to pitch to external clients, how to juggle several projects at once, and how to adapt and communicate effectively when working with fellow students. BMC helped us to develop the skills, confidence and working relationships that we needed to start Kudegra Productions.’
Jai added ‘I decided to study Film and TV Production because I always enjoyed film editing and the idea of bringing various film shots together into one coherent piece. I really enjoyed the Level 3 course, and film production was my ideal career choice, so I decided to continue at BMC to study the BA Digital Film Production degree.
The Professional Project that we completed in our final degree year really helped us to develop the technical and communication skills that we needed to start Kudegra Productions, as we were required to take on various production and post-production roles in order to create a short film. The opportunity to enter the ‘Enter the Pitch’ competition during every year of the degree also helped us to grow our professional pitching skills, which will really help with Kudegra Productions going forward.’
The multi-million pound Big BMC Transformation has provided Digital Film Production students with the very best in technology, facilities and teaching. Facilities include brand new production and editing suites, a Film and TV Studio with one of the largest infinity green screens outside of London, and a range of high quality cameras, lighting, and sound equipment.
