Rhys Rasmussen.

Apart from having a passion for creating YouTube content, Rhys Rasmussen wasn’t sure of what he wanted to do within the creative media industry.

He studied media at Coleg Ceredigion before going on to study new media production at University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Rhys Rasmussen said: “During my time in education I learnt to combine my passion of media production and e-sports and over the last two years I’ve been focused on creating video content within the e-sports industry.”

Rhys’s work has been recognised throughout the UK as he won UK Esports Videographer of the Year as well as being nominated twice for the Videographer of the Year in the Esports Industry Awards.

Over the past few months, Rhys’s work has taken him to places such as Sweden, Atlanta, Tenerife and Madrid and he is currently in the process of setting up an e-sports creative agency called DLC Studios with three others.

“Studying at Coleg Ceredigion helped to orientate myself to see which direction I wanted to go and it’s crazy how far things have come since I began college five years ago but I still hear my tutor saying, ‘hold your shots Rhys’ to this day!”
