Fresh from Falmouth: December edition
Fresh from Falmouth returns for the final edition of 2021. Check out the latest creative offerings from the talented students, staff and graduates that make up our incredible community.
The Yukon Assignment is now streaming on Netflix
The Yukon Assignment, produced by Lecturer in Television Charlie Fripp, has been picked up by Netflix ahead of the holiday season.
The film stars and was directed by British adventurer Chris Lucas; The Yukon Assignment sees Chris and his father Niall take on 500 miles of Canadian wilderness in an unsupported canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada.
The documentary is a breath-taking exploration of one of the earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can sometimes bring us together, irrespective of age – watch it today.
Students release Adland newspaper
Students studying Creative Advertising have created a new edition of their in-house newspaper Adland.
It’s been quite a year for the students, who have enjoyed a guest lecture from Jez Stewart, curator of animation at the BFI, a fascinating workshop on stereotypes from PHD student Kelly Parker, and not one but two lectures from Andrew Cracknell, author of The Real Mad Men.
All these experiences have been rolled together to help answer one question; what can advertising’s history teach us today?
Students and members of staff can pick up their copy for free from the School of Communication.

Lecturer publishes paperback
Popular Music lecturer D Ferret’s book Dark Sound: Feminine Voices in Sonic Shadow has now been published as a paperback by Bloomsbury.
In the book, D argues that the extreme limits and transgressions of dark sound not only imply the limits of language, but are also tied to a cultural and historical association between darkness and the feminine within music and music discourse.
Following its release, the author told her Twitter followers to “Read it on winter solstice for a super dark journey. Hand delivered by a murder of witches. Drawn through the work of phenomenal musicians and writers. I'll leave it with you.” Buy a copy here.
