In our Key Concept in Media and communication module we were asked to produce a 3 minutes documentary in 72 hours. Indeed within 3 days we had to shoot, to make interviews, to edit, to make risk assessment, find equipment, a lot of researches. But fortunately it was a group work, we managed our time and effectively and eventually we met the deadline.
The subject was imposed , my group (the group B3) had to make an observational documentary about the history of Hillfields ( a sensitive neighborhood of Coventry) and the targeted audience was teenagers. We chose to cover Hillfields’s history of music
It was nice to work with them because everyone was very open minded to everyone’s ideas and listen to the rest of the team. We were organized since the very beginning and took all the decision together as a group. We decided that we would shoot the first day and that we would edit the second one.
It was my first “intense” shooting. We began our shooting from 10.30, we went to Hillz fm to film their radio show and came back to uni. We were supposed to go back there at 4pm to film but we were told thqt few others crew would be there to film as well. We decided to go back to Hillz fm in order to be the first. We waited there until 4pm and finished around 5pm. At the end of the day, all our crew was very tired but we were happy with the work we’ve done.
It was a very good experience, I’ve learnt how important team spirit is. It was very interesting to work with people from other courses (some members from the crew were studying media and communication and others media and production) and share our knowledge and our abilities which tend to by complementary.
