Hubs clean-up

..what you can see below is not quite as good, but this is what your lecturers do for fun in the summer…

Your TV tutors Graham Moorby and Katie Oscroft have been out and about filming with our NEW Canon XA10 cameras.  We happened upon this story by looking out of our office window, heading out with the camera and setting up an interview.

Top tips from this remarkable piece of work: most of the shots are simple framed and static. No crazy zooming and panning.  There is a point to the (beautifully presented) piece to camera. And the words compliment the pictures. Simple!

High praise from our external examiner for these two piece of level TV work from Oli Constable and Shannon Cooke
