Student films at Spa Grand Prix for Team BRIT

UoN Media student Luke Sheehan has recently been filming at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium for one of his clients, Team BRIT – a professional motorsport race team whose 4 drivers are all injured troops (BRIT standing for British Racing Injured Troops).

The team competed in ‘the longest race in the world’ – the Spa-Francorchamps 25hr FunCup Race, in which 118 teams from around Europe competed.

Team BRIT are normalising disability and have created the world’s most advanced hand control system.

During his 5 day trip to Spa-Francorchamps, Luke was supported with equipment by manufacturer Canon UK, and leading UK retailer ProAV.

Luke said, “I was very proud to be supported by two very well respected companies within the filming industry, Canon produce outstanding equipment, and ProAV are one of the UK’s leading retailers for filming equipment. Being supported by them both meant that I had broadcast-quality equipment which I knew would be up to the job”.

Whilst Luke is a full-time student, he has already gained several broadcast credits for his portfolio, including; BBC Look East, BBC South Today, BBC North West, and Channel 5, Sky Sports, and has had photos published in Autosport Magazine, and several London newspapers.
