Former SERC student Phillip Sacramento is now a star of a BBC education series, aimed at teaching young viewers about sound and music.
Phillip, who completed his HND in Performing Arts at SERC in Bangor last year, already has an impressive showreel of work as he continues his successful career as a voiceover artist.
Not only has his voice been heard on national TV adverts for big companies such as Lidl, NI Water and Autoline, he is also a regular radio presenter on SERC’s Bangor FM, where he began broadcasting in 2018.
His latest role has involved filming a series of programmes for BBC Bitesize, aimed at primary school pupils.
“I play Martin the Martian in the series who, along with his best friend Cara, helps teach young people about the principles of sound, rhythm and music,” Phillip told us, "I worked with the amazing team at Score Draw Music to help bring the show to life for the BBC and the whole crew made it such a fun experience!"
The former SERC student said his time at the college was invaluable to him and gave him the experience to build his career.
"My time studying Performing Arts at SERC gave me the confidence and nurturing I needed to develop my skills further and expand them into a thriving career. I really feel that I am living the dream, and the time I spent at SERC played a huge part in making it a reality."
“Broadcasting on Bangor FM has also been really valuable to my career. Not only have I learned so many new skills – not least of all with operating a live radio desk – but also through the live interviews I have conducted on-air.”
Phillip can be heard on Bangor FM every Monday from 3pm.
