Glasgow Kelvin student’s creative work is supported by Deacon Blue.
Photography Lecturer Simon Murphy was so impressed by the professionalism of the work that Lawrence produced for the unit “Moving Image” that he recommended him to the band to shoot some visuals for their latest tour. Lawrence recruited fellow Glasgow Kelvin College music student Fraser Morrison to play the part of “Jackie” from the 1991 hit “The day Jackie jumped the jail” and went to work to produce a video including incredible drone footage of the city.
There was also a cameo by fellow photography student Rosie Biggar who has just returned from shooting documentary images at legendary Welsh music studio “Rockfield” which has hosted the likes of Oasis and Queen.
Deacon Blue’s Manager Tom O’Rourke was delighted with the results:
“Lawrence has done a brilliant job on the video. He’s a great find”.
Lecturer Simon was equally happy:
“I could not be prouder with the way our students embrace opportunities like this. Lawrence has demonstrated professionalism and applied his talent within tight deadlines. I am convinced that he will have a very bright future”.
Glasgow Kelvin College is delighted that students’ work is being showcased in this way and that the equally hard work and encouragement of talented staff is bearing fruit. Lawrence will go on to greater things in the future.
