Monday the 5th of February saw the very first day of location filming on the Shift project for HNC Film and Television students Laura Gilbert and Shannon Munro. Simon Sharkey, Associate Director of NTS (National Theatre of Scotland) was filmed talking about the project on location at Summerlee Heritage Museum.
On Tuesday night Radoslaw Wnuk, Maja Engnell and Savannah Cobb filmed sound production students working with the Summerlee Choir, who were recording a number of traditional songs that will be used in the multi-media art project.
Wednesday evening’s shoot covered the Future Forecasts event at Airdrie Town Hall, filmed by HND Film & Television students Garry Thomson and Cameron Shaw. All footage from the three location shoots was then given to their classmate Albert Lucas who had the task of reviewing and editing it into a short promotional video, now featured on the National Theatre of Scotland’s YouTube and Vimeo Channels. The first in a series of Shift Transmissions.
“2018 is the Year of Young People and there are many interesting projects being delivered this year across Scotland which will aim to highlight the skills and talent that the next generation have to offer.
The students within the Film & TV department demonstrated this week that they are no strangers to a bit of hard graft and they really impressed the project team at NTS with their dedication, commitment and passion for filming.
The students worked into the evening across three nights in order to meet the Friday deadline and the final cut was delivered to the client with an hour to spare. Not only was the deadline met, the client was delighted with the result and the students valued the experience.”
