The first week of our term-2 Television student projects has been a busy one!
On Tuesday, our first-year production team “Keen-Wa Productions” was shooting a PSA promoting workplace gender equality using our new Sony FS-700 cinema camera, and on Thursday, “4:1 Films” faced the elements as we produced an exterior shoot for a bicycle safety public service announcement.
Only a small part of the production is on-set however; students spend weeks of work planning and preparing these productions! Just showing up to shoot is easy, going fully prepared, and with all of the necessary documentation is a lot of work!
The faculty lectured on Music Videos (with a generous helping of Michael Jackson!), and we demonstrated some of our production gear such as the Jimmy Jib with a remote camera head, and HD field monitors.
