De Montfort University, Royal Visit Documentary
March 2012
I was personally requested by the Vice-Chancellor of De Montfort University, to create a documentary about the build up and preparation that went into all of the organization of the royal visit to De Montfort University on the 8th of March 2012. This involved capturing footage and audio of various meetings, events and interviewing a range of people who were involved in the preparation such as the Vice-Chancellor himself. I had to be on the ball and get to various different locations throughout 3 weeks at different times, and be ready to document what was being organized by all the members involved. This gave great experience of what it is like to be working in production. The documentary was recorded in a fly on the wall style with narration.
The short documentary was played to an audience at a start of a fashion show just before the Queen, Prince Phillip and the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine entered.
Equipment used: Canon XH-A1, Canon 600D, Beyer MCE86 Microphone, Beyer MCE58 Microphone.
Software Used: Avid Media Composer 6, Pro Tools 10, Photoshop CS6.
