Post Production and VFX graduate’s film featured at film festival and on local TV

Categories: School of Arts, Media and Creative Technology

BA Post Production and VFX graduate Kory Le Moore’s final year project film featured at The Inheritance Environmental Film Festival.

Saving: Hope was also chosen to feature on three local TV channels, including Belfast’s NVTV and Sheffield’s Live in September. The film is centered around the idea of rewilding and aspires to educate people about progressive conservation.

His lecturer, Ian Wilson, was very supportive through the process and guided him towards creating a film around his passion. The film paved way for Kory to get into the industry and he was able to land his dream job at Silverback Films in Bristol as a tech assistant.  

Kory shared how going back to education was scary at first but his experience at Salford changed his perspective on formal learning.

He said: “Education for me growing up was difficult as I am autistic and no one took the time to take that into consideration. I dealt with it in my own way. Salford helped me to be the best I could be, it felt like I was given a second chance at life.”

On his experience of having been recognized for his work he stated, “It changed everything for me as I was able to get invaluable feedback from editors in the industry.

“It was a surreal experience to see that something I had created featured on TV and have such a big audience.

“I really hope that in the future Saving: Hope can be made into a series and more episodes can be created.”

Moreover, Kory has received his first broadcast credit as a technical assistant on Hamza: Strictly Birds of Prey, a wildlife TV show which is available for viewing on BBC iPlayer.
