Media Makeup Student Lands Dream Job with the BBC
Megan Edwards, a Media and TV Makeup student at Riverside College has had a great start to her career after landing a fantastic job with the BBC.
Megan has spent the last three months travelling around the country with a celebrity team consisting of Phil Tufnell, Matt Dawson, Helen Skilton and Ore Oduba for the filming of a new BBC game show Question of Sport – Super Saturday.
Megan was employed as the ‘on location’ makeup artist for the show and has travelled around the UK to locations including the Zip Wire World in Wales, Rockingham Race Track and Tree Top adventures with the TV stars as they go head to head a series of sporting challenges.
Megan who is currently completing her level 3 in Film and TV Makeup at Riverside College managed to fit her job in around her studies with the help of the Riverside Tutors. She said, “I Have really enjoyed doing the makeup for this new BBC One show, is been a fantastic experience for me. I have been able to make lots of new contacts and I am hoping it will help to kick start my career.
“My perfect job would be to work as a makeup artist for a top movie or music industry star or work as trainer for one of the large makeup brands. The tutors at Riverside are really supportive and not only teach you about makeup and special effects but they also teach you how to be successful in this tough industry.”
