Catching up with alumni Adam Price
We love hearing from our alumni students and hearing what they have been up to since leaving Brighton Film School. We caught up with alumni Adam Price (Filmmaking HND 2012-2014) who has since founded Paean Films Ltd and worked on some hard hitting TV documentaries as well as corporate work.
I decided early on try and get into corporate video production as I thought it would be great way to supplement my income while looking for work in Film and TV. In December 2014 (thanks to a referral from the Brighton Film School) I produced some work for EDF Energy with fellow Brighton Film School alumni Olivia Lilburn. The brief was to produce a series of fast-turnaround videos for the Regional Media Awards, an event which celebrates journalism in the South east of England. ITV Meridian won "Best Television News Programme of the Year" and our video was broadcast on the six o'clock news that evening. In February this year I set up Paean Films Limited through which I've done all subsequent corporate video production.
Along side commercial work I have also worked on a couple television documentaries. The first being "The Boss Lady" about a dominatrix living in Hove which I co-edited and the other as-yet untitled about a punk rock musician named Mat Sargent which I'm filming. Mat Sargent was diagnosed HIV positive when he was raped by his manager whilst recording his debut album. Ten years later he started recording a charity album called "Sex, Drugs and HIV" to help raise money for other people suffering from the condition. The project grew with over 200 artists contributing to the album, these artists included most notably: Spandau Ballet, The Specials and The Beat.
