HND Film & TV students produce video promo for Burnett Motorsport

Three New College Lanarkshire HND Film & TV students have gained valuable work experience through producing a promo video for Burnett Motorsport during their work experience unit.  Martin Boyle, Josh Mckinlay and Justin McGuire were tasked with filming the team’s exploits on location at Knockhill race track.  Martin said:

“We arrived at the Knockhill on Saturday, which was a test day and explored the track to scout appropriate filming locations. There were many warm up races so we had plenty of opportunities to fine tune our filming approach for the next day.  We experimented with shooting at different frame rates for coherent slow motion shots to be composed in the edit. Once we were satisfied with our set up, we filmed interviews with the drivers and mechanics.”

“On Sunday morning we were teamed with the Burnett Motors TV team who gave us free reign to film. Justin and Josh filmed races while I shot the preparation of the Legends class motors. While filming these shots I was introduced to Stevie, the head of the Burnett Motors team who wanted me to set up the GoPro cameras for in car footage. This was a great opportunity to work with new equipment. I worked the GoPro set up for the rest of the races while Josh and Justin shot the track footage and continued interviewing. The Burnett Motorsport team won the competition, so we capped off the experience with footage of their trophy presentation and celebration.  Our contact at Burnett throughout the weekend was Chris Wallace who was extremely helpful and accommodating.”
