Today we made our own as-live, 4 minute long newsreel. It was really fun and brought everyone out of their shells a bit more as we all had to communicate effectively and efficiently with each other. I enjoyed lighting the scenes and learning about the different lights and the lighting table. There was a lot to take in in a small amount of time so it seemed complicated at first but became easier as it went on.
I’m pleased with our overall outcome, it’s less laughably bad than the example one we were shown from previous years. There were only a couple of small errors like one of the mics not working for a couple of seconds or the camera jolting – it went better than expected, nonetheless and it was fun.
