During July 9th to Aug 3rd all Graphics and Titles students undertook a work placement at Sky Creative in London working within designated departments. I was placed in Sky Sports while others worked within Sky Cinema and the Now TV departments.
After an initial introduction there was little engagement from the department heads resulting in a constant search for something to do. Having to turn down several film projects in favour of this placement proved to be a frustrating experience.
It’s an impressive campus, but I remain unconvinced of the creative opportunities of working within Sky and find it difficult to recommend as a choice for work placement.
