This masterclass will introduce you to Lachlan and Oliver, co-founders of Lost Tapes media. Born and raised in Cornwall, Lachlan quickly found his passion for creative projects and filmmaking at college. Since graduating with a film production degree he has sharpened his skills in creative direction, project management and post production. Born and raised in both the UK and Peru, Oliver found his passion for creativity during his travels across the seven seas. One thing led to another and Lost Tapes was born after having met co-founder, Lachlan.

During this masterclass, Lachlan and Oliver will be going through their journey starting with how they came together as freelancers and learnt together the skills they needed to bring in clients and create the business they have today.

Starting off as a clothing company, making music videos on the side they started to shift back to the skillset they saw as 'realistic' at the time. They will talk about the lessons they learnt at this time came to help them with being more logical when it came to running a production agency.

You will also hear from them as to what they are doing now as a production agency, how they got through the last year and where they plan to be going in 2021.

You’ll also have an opportunity to ask any questions during a Q&A portion of the event. 

SAE London Digital Film Production Programme Coordinator Dino Jacovides said: “Learning from entrepreneurs like Lachlan and Oliver is a great way to determine whether setting up your own media business or project is the right decision for you. There’s a lot of hard work involved in getting a business off the ground, but with a practical solutions-focused session like this you’re bound to glean lots of useful tips and tricks to help you engineer your own success.” 

Lots of SAE students and graduates go on to set up their own companies; last year we spoke to SAE Oxford graduate Indi Brodley, who told us all about how she set up her own music production and sound engineering business

We also spoke to SAE Glasgow Audio Production graduates Innes Little and Kira Marshall who set up their own recording facility: White Room Audio Recording

SAE Liverpool graduates set up their own production company, Branchwork Media, while SAE London alumni Nick Brown and Shayo Three set up the Rosegold Group and came back to speak to students in 2019.
