By-election Work

On Thursday February 23 the new MP for Copeland was elected.

In the build up to the vote I was part of the Egremont 2Day team that went around the borough and conducted video interviews with each of the candidates.

The YouTube channel is found here.

While filming, each video provided different problems such as back ground sound or lighting. The camera used was a Sony A58, this did not do a bad job. However with some extra equipment such as a reflector to balance the light or a microphone to heighten to audio.

It was also my task to edit the footage together, having learned from an earlier interview not to record it in one chunk. Using Adobe Premier Pro to edit the video proved to be difficult at first with more practice and research the program became easier to use.

This was something different from my usual work with the newspaper, it provided new challenges and experience in an area that I have not had before. In future work it maybe something that I will look to use.
