Isle of Thanet Gazette, 7 June 2011: “Year one BTEC Film and TV students have wowed a panel of art, media and marketing professionals.

Bob Bennet, Ben Jayson, Natasha Mitchell, James Smoker and Michael Thompson presented their idea for a standalone video tower to promote the forthcoming arts festival, Blink, in Margate on the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The panel, made up of Clair Chamberlain from The Corner Shop PR and Marketing Company, Verity McArthur of McMcArts – producers of the event, Sophie Jeffrey of Margate Arts Culture and Heritage, and Rebecca Smith, editor of the Thanet Times, were impressed by what they thought was an original concept presented in such an organised, creative and professional way.

The team will be given a budget of up to £5,000 to develop their idea further.”
