Three former NCL HND graduates have created a new promotional video for New College Lanarkshire’s Film/TV and Sound Production departments.
Film and Television alumni Johnny Lynn and Duncan Formosa and Sound Production graduate Kieran Greig were tasked with producing a promotional short to highlight the skillsets and equipment utilised in the areas of Film/TV and Sound production.
The brief included a directive to show both the facilities and equipment available to students at the college’s Cumbernauld campus and to give an insight into the production processes involved in moving image and sound production. The group developed an innovative and simple treatment based around the equipment setup and filming of a live band in the recording facilities at the campus and scheduled a shoot to take place over a couple of days during the Summer recess.
The Glasgow band “Black Cat Revue” fronted by former HND Film and Television student Garry Thomson lent their services to the project and the three man crew were given access to the department’s facilities and extensive range of Film and Sound Production equipment to capture the many shots and sounds needed to make the feature.
“Everyone across the departments of Film/TV and Sound Production is delighted with the 2018/19 promo’ and it’s particularly satisfying to have been able to commission three graduates from our courses to create and produce this feature for us.
They’ve delivered a very creative and professional promotional feature within budget and on schedule. Who better to advertise our specialisms and courses? “
-Michael Grant, Film & Television Lecturer.
“It has been great to witness the collaboration between former film and sound production students on this project. The creative sound design by Kieran has elevated the quality of the promo to a truly professional level and will stand as a great example for future students of the power of sound for moving images.”
-Andreas Jonsson, Sound Production Lecturer.
