Your organisation’s role

If your organisation is interested in working with our students, please get in touch with us. We can then talk about your requirements and discuss how our students can help your organisation. PULSS help our students negotiate a reasonable payment for their services. The agreed payment is made directly to our students and the contract is held between the client and the student or students, not with LJMU.

LJMU Media Production students proved invaluable to us. Our oral storytelling website, peoples-stories.com, was in need of streamlining and as a small indie we didn't have the time to analyse what the next stage in its evolution should be. Thanks to the LJMU team we got a clear and well-thought through appraisal.

Case study

Comworks TV

Comworks TV helps businesses develop digital training videos and interactive training programmes. Recently, sixteen of our students joined Comworks TV. Our students – who all had media production, film studies or journalism knowledge – worked with Comworks TV to film a global organisation’s two-day live event.

Comworks TV trained students and then work began on-site at Excel London. As part of this project, students:

  • were responsible for the set-up
  • ensured high-production values of the camera coverage
  • monitored the quality of sound and vision
  • captured the media to tape and disk
  • derigged equipment after the event
  • were involved with the post-production and were responsible for multi-camera editing of the content

The operations crew delivered a first-class job. They rightly earned the respect of the broadcast camera operators and live event team. They met the highest standards of professionalism and commitment in what was a tight schedule under demanding circumstances.
