As a group of students we teamed up to create a short documentary film on the Gateshead arches project called ‘Co-Musica’. We sourced interviews, conducted extensive research on the project and created this.

My ‘Camera Operator’ role was my first ever role in media and is one I am very grateful for as it gave me the opportunity to get my foot on the ladder, and what better way with one the the most well known broadcasters in Britain.
Being a first year student at the time I was nervous, shy and if I’m honest knew nothing about how to operate a camera – let alone a £3000 worth of broadcast equipment!
We were trained down at BT Sport headquarters in Stratford, London and were then sent off to our respective clubs, mine being my hometown club York City FC. During the season we filmed the match highlights and interviewed managers Jackie McNamara and Gary Mills – our work would then be aired on BT Sport 1 at 10PM on a Sunday night.
With this I also helped out the clubs Media Officer by editing a separate reel of highlights which would be published on to their paid subscription service MinstermenPlayerHD.
From this role I harnessed my skills with Adobe Premiere and also used Sony’s editing software.
