A BOLTON student has jetted out to Ibiza as he looks to build his own film making business.

Jack Close, who is a fourth year medical student at the University of Liverpool, has combined working in hospital with establishing his new venture, which has already taken him across the UK filming a number of exclusive events.

“During the week I’m in Liverpool in hospitals doing my placement but at the weekend I make videos for events in Manchester,” said Jack.

“Through that I met Ellie Sax, who is a saxophone player who performs at clubs and private events all over the world.”

An award-winning graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, the saxaphone player has countless international bookings and night club appearances to her names and has performed alongside many of house music’s biggest names including Jon DaSilva, Terry Farley, Dave Law, and Colin Francis as well as sharing the headline billing with the UK’s hottest new DJ talent.

Jack said: "I made a video for her which she loved and she is now flying me out to to film her performing at O Beach club in Ibiza.”

Being in his fourth year of five at university means time is precious for the 21-year-old from Bromley Cross.

“While on placement I try and focus fully on my medical work, work really hard on placement and make sure I complete all my studies, so at the weekends I can hone my craft while working on the videography and photography,” he said.

“Ideally I would like to locum as a doctor and also work a few days a week making films so I can balance the two. It’s all about compartmentalising and going forward there are a lot of ways I could work my career around doing both things.”

Earlier this year, Jack also got the chance to film at the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) Awards in London.

“I got to meet Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane and spend a bit of time filming them. It was such a great experience,” he said.

As for the future, the former Canon Slade pupil wants to keep as busy as possible. “I just want spread my message and get as much work as I can,” he added.

“I also want to prove to other university students that you can do lots with your time if you plan well and take risks.”
