Week One of Unit 150
This week we were given our introduction to this unit. We could either pitch for an idea or pitch a skill. Being an editor I thought that pitching myself as this would benefit me more than pitching an idea.
- I have been editing for nearly seven years now. It started off in my sixth form as I was the editor for them. I edited documentaries, events such as fashion shows and variety shows and some trailers.
- I have worked with a well known cornish filmmaker called Tom Harding on a music video featuring Flava and Phatts and Small.
- I will be working with Tom Again next february with a local project.
This week Daniel Whitehouse also approached me with his idea for his first cut documentary that he named Capture Cornwall. The crew so far is Dan who is directing it, Catherine who is the creative producer, Henry Austwick who is the producer and myself who is the editor. This project will be similar to ‘Britain in a Day’ and ‘Life In a Day’. This means that the public will be filming the footage and not the crew ourselves. This will be a challenge on its own as I the editor wont have any idea of the quality of the footage I will receive.
This week we also were given an insight of what is different between an MA degree dissertation and a BA degree dissertation. the key difference is that in a BA you do not have to keep relating it back to your own work.
