Futures: Business Start-up and Enterprise

04 June 2010

“I graduated from UCLan’s film production degree in 2008 and immediately set up my own business with the help from the university’s business incubation and support programme, which was a relatively new initiative at the time. People thought I was crazy to start a business in the height of the recession but a project where I worked for a real client in my second year, had cemented my entrepreneurial ambitions.

“It’s the best decision I have ever made, less than two years after graduating I have won a business of the month award where I have received £250, and I have secured deals with large organisations such as Lancashire County Council and the Manchester Airport Group.

“I never imagined I could achieve so much before I was 23. Without the ongoing support of the fantastic mentors, I doubt ACC Media would have developed so quickly. The high-tech facilities, one to one support, networking and action learning sessions have been vital for my business’ growth and success. ”

When a film career is inspired by chef Jamie

27 January 2010

Penwortham lad Anthony Camm is no expert in the kitchen, but he wants to follow in the footsteps of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

The former Hutton Grammer School pupil’s line of work is not into ‘pukka’ cuisine, but it is in helping other people into work and boosting his own business in the process.

He has set up ACC Media which makes films for the likes of Manchester Airport and Lancashire County Council.

The company offers students at the University of Central Lancashire the chance to work with him as part of their studies.

The 22-year-old, who now lives on Strand Road, Preston, said “It is like Jamie Oliver’s restaurants, he give students work experience, you know how he has pictures on the wall to say ‘this is our student, he used to do this and now he does this’, I would like to do the same.
“We have created a module which students can pick and come and work with us as part of their degree, that way they can come out with some work experience on their CV.”

He has already produced a training video shown to staff at Manchester Airport and a DVD showing the work the county council’s fostering department does and has his sights on other contracts in the near future.

Graduate’s Bank Coup

20 January 2010

A Preston university graduate has secured one of the country’s biggest high street banks as a customer.

Anthony Camm who set up a film production business ACC Media after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire, has produced a DVD for internal staff training at the Royal Bank of Scotland’s branch in Fishergate, Preston. He is based in a business incubator unit at the university’s new £15m Media Factory off Fylde Road.

The graduate said: “Things have gone well and I am confident of securing more work on the back of my existing productions. I am looking to contract more colleges and universities as clients…There is a strong demand from this sector because video production gives students a new and interactive way of learning.”

RBS director of commercial banking Terry Riding said the bank had been “very impressed” with the training DVD.

UCLan graduate wins prestigious filming contract with Manchester Airport Group

03 December 2009

One of the University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) first business incubation clients, Anthony Camm has secured a high profile project with Manchester Airport Group (MAG). The twenty-two year old director of filming company, ACC Media has been appointed the two-month contract over a large, national creative agency.

MAG is the country’s largest UK-owned airport operator, with four airports across England. MAG employs over 30,000 staff, 15 per cent of which will be involved with Anthony’s internal marketing campaign.

Anthony set up his business immediately after graduating; a project in the second year of his Film Production degree where Anthony produced a film for a ‘real client’ cemented his entrepreneurial ambitions. Since being nurtured by UCLan’s experienced mentors over the last year, ACC Media has seen huge growth, securing contracts with impressive clients such as Royal Bank of Scotland and Lancashire County Council, not to mention winning UCLan’s Business of the Month award in July 2009.

Securing his largest contract yet with MAG, came from the success of a series of comedic short films about customer service Anthony produced for the group earlier this year; they have been shown to all MAG employees and will be used to enter the prestigious National Customer Service Awards this month.

The Preston film maker is not only a rising entrepreneur he also teaches a class called ‘Academically Credited Commerce’ to help entrepreneurial UCLan students realise their potential. Since securing the contract with MAG, Anthony has been able to purchase new equipment and pay his student intern, Anatoli Shatenevski, whom he met teaching the elective.

Through personal contacts Anthony was introduced to Rick Yates, product development and brand delivery manager for MAG; this led to the initial small filming job Anthony completed for MAG. Due to its success, Rick contacted him with a proposal for the new contract.

Rick commented: “The film was a great project for our colleagues to work on and showcased the customer service that our visitors experience at the airport, ACC Media did a fantastic job of producing content with creative flair and humour whilst still getting the important messages across”.

Lateef Badat, business mentor and coach at UCLan, facilitates the monthly networking events, commented: “It’s wonderful when people meet through mutual contacts and realise they can collaborate. We continue to host monthly business networking events for this reason and to ensure the innovative talent in the region is retained, maintaining the North West as a leading creative area.”

Commenting on his success in securing the MAG contract Anthony said: “Without the business support from UCLan’s business incubation team I doubt ACC Media would have developed so quickly. I’m particularly grateful to business mentor co-ordinator, Julia Stickley, whose workshops gave me useful advice on pricing and the skills and confidence to approach such a large organisation.”

ACC Media thrilled to win Northern Lights’ Business of the Month Award

22 June 2009

ACC Media, a creative filming company based in UCLan’s Media Factory were established little over a year ago and have already been awarded Business of the Month, will be in the running for Business of the Year and have recently secured a contract with Lancashire County Council.

Amazingly managing director, Anthony Camm graduated from UCLan only last year with a BA Hons in Film Production. The 22-year old Prestonian started developing his business as soon as the Media Factory opened and Northern Lights services were up and running. The Northern Lights team were so impressed by Anthony’s enthusiasm that they offered him the position of technician at the Media Factory.

Anthony who is now an active member of the Business Networking Institute says he doesn’t come from a privileged background and never imagined he would be running his own business, especially at such a young age. This is why he was eager to set up his own elective, Academically Credited Commerce, for UCLan students. He hopes it will help young people realise their potential. Anthony is an enthusiastic individual and would advise anyone thinking of starting their own business to: “Just do it! And of course come to see Northern Lights!”

ACC Media was founded at the beginning of the recession last year so it is no surprise that Anthony is optimistic about his company surviving; he thanks Northern Lights’ one-to-one support, facilities and action learning sessions for contributing to his success.

Judge, Steven Bell commented on Anthony’s dedication: “Over the past year we have watched Anthony work extremely hard to grow his business, he has took our advice on board and the big decisions he has recently made I believe will make his company stronger, definitely one to watch out for at the Business of the Year awards.”

Modestly Anthony says he thinks the reason he won Business of the Month could be that he has made some good changes to ACC Media and has been growing his business for a while. He plans to spend his £250 prize money on a new microphone for his films so that he “can offer clients more.”

In the future ACC Media will be focusing on becoming established within educational institutes as this is where Anthony feels he has found his niche and would like to specialise.
