Southwark College welcomed YouTuber and filmmaker Jack Cole to deliver a talk to Media students and share his journey on becoming a video creator and give an insight of the type of roles available in the video production industry. 

Jack started his career in 2017 and has grown to become a freelance videographer and editor with 341,000 YouTube subscribers. Commenting on his visit, he said: “I’m excited to be at Southwark College to talk to the next generation of media creators about my experience in the sector and talk about the different career paths they can access in Media and the video production industry.”

At the event, Jack shared his knowledge and experience with the students in a talk covering his route to online success and the different career paths in Media and creative industries. He also set up a creative challenge for the students to create and edit a short fashion video clip for the opportunity to win prizes and get advice and feedback on the final piece.

Jon Fell, Head of Creative Arts at Southwark College, said: "We are preparing the next generation of filmmakers and video editors and having Jack Cole delivering this talk is of great value them, to have a broader idea of what options are available to them once they complete their course.”

My aim for the future is to become a director or videographer and studying media at Southwark College is allowing me to gain the knowledge, practical and technical skills I need to do that”.
