This was followed by an exercise where the group set up and filmed a more formal seated interview. Students had the opportunity to get ‘hands-on’ with the kit including camera, sound and lighting. Roles were assigned in rotation - including Director, Producer, Interviewer, Sound Recordist, Camera Operator and Lighting technician.
At the end of the day we reviewed the footage we had shot together on the computer. One day isn’t long to introduce a group to professional video production but as the scope was quite focussed on a particular area and everyone was engaged we covered everything we set out to.
During and after the course my feedback was that the group was very happy.
