NCL Cumbernauld campus students from the departments of Hair & Make-up and Film & Television recently attended the “Strictly Kids” event at the Doubletree Hilton in Glasgow, in aid of STV’s Children’s appeal.
The hair and make-up students were on hand to help prepare the dancers before the competition began and Film & TV students Chloe & Sammi Cummins and Naailah Aslam took stills and shot footage of the day’s event.
“It was great to see students from all three levels (NQ, HNC & HND Film & Television) come together and work as a team. It was a long day where they were tasked with getting as much coverage as possible in order to produce a “highlights” piece. They were able to use their initiative on the day and the footage we now have will give us lots of options in the edit.
It was also great to see two ex-students working on the production. Mark McLellen was engineering sound with AV events company VisionHire and Kevin Walls was freelancing as a camera operative for STV. This demonstrates that sometimes hard work and perseverance does pay off. I asked them both if they missed college. They both said “No” which is a good thing!!!”
