SHU lecturer and student collaborate at film awards

Over 16-26 Over 16-6 Under 16-12 Under 16-16

Journalism student Danielle Hayden played a key role in the Film Northants festival this year, which is run by journalism lecturer Lily Canter.

Danielle was part of the reporting team at the two award ceremonies held at the Errol Flynn Filmhouse in Northampton on September 1 and 2.

The ceremonies included the screening of 20 short films, Q&As with film-makers, the presentation of awards and a champagne reception.

Danielle worked as a multimedia reporter and tweeted from both events, filmed video and audio clips, interviewed film-makers and judges and wrote two blog posts.

She also saved the day at the Under 16s event when a major technical glitch meant her Macbook had to used to play the film files as the cinema system was not working.

Danielle said: “I feel proud to have been a part of Film Northants. I had such a great time and I hope to be back again next year.”

Lily added: “Danielle did a fantastic job and fitted in with our reporting team straight away. Her digital skills were invaluable to us and meant we were able to do many things we haven’t done at the awards before such as live video clips, audio interviews and a live tweet feed.”
