Team Derby Video is Live!

Over the last few weeks, Team Derby’s Marketing Intern Lizzy Mawson and fellow Film Production Graduates Demetri Yiallourou and Liam Herring of Forged Films have been creating a promotional video for Team Derby!

You may have spotted some of the filming taking place around campus, or seen our social media posts.

The video was only made possible because of the participation and enthusiasm of the current students and staff members, who supported the video from the very start. Dan Bowden, Sports Participation Manager at the Students Union said "it will have a huge impact on our students and the wider community". The video not only illustrates what Team Derby is in its separate parts, but also the dedication to Sport and the precedence that it sets at The University of Derby.


Here are some behind the scenes photos of the filming in action!






Demetri Yiallourou graduated from The University of Derby in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in Film Production, he was the lead camera operator and Director of Photography on the shoot.

When asked about how he felt about being a part of the film making process, he says, “I felt incredibly proud as an alumni, coming back to the university where my film making career started. It was a privilege and a honour”

A huge thank you to Media Production student Josh Rout and Joe Buckley who also helped out on the shoot; and also programme leader Phil Basi.


The video can also be seen on the Team Derby Facebook and Twitter pages – so please share it out on your social media pages!
