This week we have been working on a film commission for a Youth Sport Trust project called Stars Squad, a group of national standard young athletes from Stoke.
We really enjoyed meeting all the talented athletes, definitely ones to watch for the future...in fact, ones to watch now, Beaky featured in the film is currently the national indoor and outdoor senior and junior champion! Impressive. Take a look for yourself
We have started a new and exciting challenge working with one of our crew members, Eddie, as he learns how to BMX race from scratch.
Crew members from The Reporters' Academy will be following Eddie's journey, producing monthly documentaries showing the ups and downs of the challenge.
Every week we are opening The Reporters Academy doors and offering our crew members a place to go and media skills to learn. Over the next few weeks we are offering writing and video editing masterclasses.
We shall be offering training and drop in sessions at The Reporters' Academy HQ. There will be great training to take advantage of, a relaxed atmosphere, music and snacks.
The aim, to produce short video clips to show BMX beginners how to master a series of basic tricks. The videos were for Halfords, for the new BMX section on their website. Myself, Matt and our industry mentors from The Reporters’ Academy were on location in Birmingham's Creation Skate Park working with Halfords marketing department to make the filming shoot come to life.
A recent video commission for an exciting new educational concept, Aspirational Futures, which allows young people, employees and education providers to speak a common language.
We are fond of the film, it allowed us to get creative with our editing style, to work to a tight brief and explore different methods of delivering messages (voice overs, graphics, interviews, images), have a look and see what you think...
Our crew were asked to produce ten BMX video tutorials for Halfords online website resource area. Crew members Connor and Matt had an awesome day with professional mentor Donna, in a skate park working with two BMX riders mastering the production of video tutorials.
