I have just embarked on a paid filming project outside of my MA International Journalism course at University College Falmouth. It is a joint venture with two of my fellow course mates Catherine Feltham and Daniel Holmes, and will see us making a series of short documentary-style films for Penwith Community Development Trust (PCDT).
Myself and Catti are on the filming side of things. Between us we will be filming, producing, editing, directing, interviewing and presenting the feature videos. Having already made a 6 minute film for the Eden Project’s first World Pasty Championships and spent many a late night together editing, we know that we work really well as a team (team EDNA to be precise), so the project should be nothing but a fantastic experience.
Dan has been recruited to cover the still images. He did a BA in press photography at University College Falmouth and is a bit of a star behind the camera. He also owns a car and the ability to drive us around the furthest reaches of Cornwall has been a definite bonus!! (not to mention his equipment carrying skills).
The filming is quite a major project, and we have therefore set up a blog just for this; PCDTfilms to show people our progress and keep the commissioners up-to-date. There will be frequent posts as we go out and about to film around Cornwall, so take a look and let me know what you think.
