Fifth Planet Productions
After producing a substantial amount of video, photography and design work for the University of Huddersfield and the Students' Union whilst studying for their degrees, graduate Music students Nic Flatt and Stacey Powers set up their social enterprise Fifth Planet Productions C.I.C with support from HudUnltd and the Enterprise Team's Activ8 Your Business scheme.
They are a creative multimedia production company whose profits are reinvested to support local charities and other third sector organisations that benefit the community. Fifth Planet Productions frequently employ creative students and graduates to help with live projects, and are currently developing partnerships between the University and local schools to establish mentorship support for disengaged students.
Nic and Stacey were the University's Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Award winners in 2017.
