Damian, Creative & Digital

The facilities are great, you learn how to use the latest software and the teachers really understand the industry.

Damian Palliyaguruge has ambitious designs for a career in the film industry.

The 18-year-old has achieved a distinction merit in a technical qualification in creative and digital media as well as a grade B in A Level photography.

Damian joined the UTC in Year 12 at the age of 16 and is now going on to study a Degree in Film Making at the University of the West of England – UWE Bristol.

He said: “When I found out my results I was over the moon because I didn’t expect to get to the grades that I did. I chose the UTC because it offers a really good grounding in a wide range of creative media skills with employers setting the project briefs.”

Damian continued: “I’ve created an advertising campaign for Kahler clothing and a music video for Sheffield rapper Lil Midz. I’ve made a film, a mockumentary, about a misfit band of rockers going through a band break-up, and had the chance to explore photography, journalism and creative writing.

“The facilities are great, you learn how to use the latest software and the teachers really understand the industry. Choosing the UTC was definitely the right decision for me.”

Alex Reynolds, Principal, UTC Sheffield City Centre, said: “Damian has fully embraced what the UTC was designed to do. He has taken every opportunity to engage with employers and develop work to an industry standard for real-world clients.”

He added: “Alongside his exceptional results, this positions him in an extremely strong position for his future career in the creative digital media industry once he completes his degree. We wish him all the success during his time at university.”
