Our Graduates

Dan Broadley
Finding his love for cinematography during his studies on BA (Hons) Film Arts all while honing his craft as a musician, Daniel Broadley has since found a way to combine both of his creative talents as Director for Kode Media as well as founding his own agency, Daniel Broadley Films.His passion for marrying both audio and visual together has made him a stand-out creative for creating promos, and he has worked on projects for bands such as You Me at Six, Don Broco, Ward Thomas and Lower Than Atlantis. “There was a lot of freedom to explore filmmaking as a medium at Arts University Plymouth. We were encouraged to experiment and think outside the box, even if it meant failing. This helped me become more brave as a creative, to not fear criticism.”
