A Day With DIY SOS
Four Media Production students got to see a real television programme being made when they were invited to see DIY SOS being filmed in Mildenhall.
Jacob Watkinson, Ashley Tyler, Mani Leggit and Peter Hampford were chosen after Screen Suffolk asked if students from Film and Creative would like to see the production.
Mani Leggett, 17, from Woolpit, said the day was; “Brilliant, everyone was so nice and the atmosphere was great. We were surprised how small film crew was, only one camera guy. We talked about how the show was edited and production issues like having multiple productions running simultaneously. It was an excellent day”.
Rachel Aldridge from Screen Suffolk said: “The site visit went really well, they had about an hour with production/director/camera ops and were talked through the build with Mark who’s one of the presenters and the main building contractor. Your students asked really pertinent questions and were really keen to ask about the edit process and how the production as a whole works. A real credit to your college!”
