Confetti Alumni

Some of Confetti's most talented alumni are coming back to talk life after graduation, securing a job in the industry and everything they have learnt along the way.


Panel hosted by Alison Whitlock, with Confetti Alumni Kurt Martinez, Merryn Peachey, Ethel Mudavanhu, Maggie Mojsiejuk, and Callum Hancock.

Do It For Real is all about Confetti students getting real industry opportunities whilst studying, to help them get work in the creative industries.

We’ve invited some of Confetti’s top graduates to talk about the industry experience they’ve gained since leaving, and to answer your questions about the creative industries.

Come and listen to the stories of how they got their first break, navigated the tricky moments getting there, and what working life looks like now. Don’t forget to come armed with lots of questions to ask them!

Merryn Rae Peachey
LinkedIn | IMDB

Merryn Rae is a Script Supervisor for TV and Film. She has trained under Norina Mackey (Masters Of The Air, 2024), Chiara Carbonara (The Lazarus Project, 2024) and Nua Watford (Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, 2024). She has worked as Main Unit Script Supervisor on shows such as Two Doors Down (BBC, 2022), Father Brown (BBC, 2020) and The Sister Boniface Mysteries (BBC/Brit Box, 2022), and as 2nd Unit or Dailies Script Supervisor on Industry (Bad Wolf, 2023), Boarders (Studio Lambert, 2023) and Alex Rider (Amazon, 2023).

She graduated from Confetti in 2018 and moved straight to the National Film and Television School to specialise in Script Supervision, also graduating there in 2018. After that, life forced her to get a full-time job outside of the industry for 2 years, but she used every day of her holiday allowance to work on short films.

As the pandemic waned, production companies started working hard to produce content again, and this is when Script Supervisors with Merryn’s experience base found themselves getting hired on TV shows. Using this as a jumping-off point, Merryn went freelance for good. She occasionally returns to Confetti to lecture on Script Supervision to 2nd-year Film Degree students.

Callum Hancock

Callum is a Game Designer who studied at Confetti from 2015-2018. He has worked on the MMO title Star Citizen, as well as the single-player counter Squadron 42. Callum work predominantly as a Tech Designer, but often works with pure Level Design too.

Ethel Mudavanhu

Ethel is a broadcaster, journalist, and content producer for the BBC. From Zimbabwe and Nottingham, her journey working in the media industry started right here at Confetti on the Television Production Technology undergraduate course.

Ethel picked up some invaluable skills working at Notts TV during her studies, before a stint as a newsreader and journalist at a national radio station. All of that paved the way for her to work at BBC Radio Nottingham; producing radio programmes, assisting on OBs and presenting a weekly show.

Now, Ethel is working as a Station Sound Producer, where she creates content for the ‘From Nottinghamshire’ section on BBC Sounds. She enjoys getting to be super creative, crafting the station’s jingles and promos.

“I feel really blessed to have a job that’s both fun and fulfilling. Catch me at Industry Week where we’ll chat about all things broadcasting and maybe share a laugh or two along the way!”
