Here is the gantt chart I completed for the first two projects for our first client, the Hull Daily Mail. The timeline shows our intial contact with our client and the pre-production, filming, and post-production process.
These are the two videos Ammie and I filmed and edited for Hull Daily Mail. We created two versions of the story, one in a 60 second news bite, and one longer in length, to see which one our client, Paul Johnson, preferred to use on the Hull Daily Mail’s website. He ended up choosing the longer version, which he then published on the website.
We put up the videos on our social media, which was then retweeted by Hyperfruit and others:
The video was also used by Princes Quay on their website:
During my time here, my role was to assist with the Mission Christmas event organised by Viking FM’s Charity Team; this job included telephoning newspapers to recruit them as event partners, working the Viking FM fashion show and the Mission Christmas launch event, calling up and emailing businesses to be supporters and fundraisers, and filming beneficiaries/supporters for an online video.
My job here entailed: managing the social media platforms of Neonn, including Twitter, Facebook, and the WordPress blog accounts. I interacted with possible clients on the networking sites and updated them daily/weekly with new company information. As well as this, over the Christmas month, I recruited (via social media) past clients and other businesses in the area to take part in a seasonal music video that Neonn produced.
“Ammie and Jen approached HullBID with the offer of producing a Hull Fashion Week video, covering the event from early planning stages to the grand finale at Hull City Hall. Working with these budding filmmakers was brilliant, they attended the events with plenty of enthusiasm and blended in with the professionals at the media launch of Hull Fashion Week. Not only did Ammie and Jen provide an excellent service in capturing Hull Fashion Week on film, they also got really involved in the activities – such as taking part in makeovers – with their personalities bringing Hull Fashion Week to life for those who didn’t experience it in person.” – Alana Ennis, HullBID
I created a Facebook page for Ammie and I so that we can reach a wider audience through our social media networks. An online social presence is vital for a media company, and this gives us interaction with people. It helps us get our names and faces out there. We hope to carry on this in the future and these social networks will stay in use. Nowadays, social media is also a tool to attract customers to your brand, and hopefully down the line, people will contact us on these media platforms for business inquiries.
Ammie and I were featured in the Hull Daily Mail on April 1st, 2014. The story is about our Self-Initiated Project of filming and documenting Hull Fashion Week, from the preparation/lead-up to the main event at Hull City Hall.
I created a blog consisting of photographs and video footage taken of Hull College music students on their trip to Memphis, Tennessee. See here: Hull College Memphis Blog 2013
From May 24th to June 3rd 2013, another media student and I accompanied music students & lecturers on their trip to the United States. Destination: Memphis, Tennessee. Spending 10 days in the city of soul music. The task I was set with was to document Hull College’s involvement at Stax Music Academy and their time recording at the famous Sun Studio.
Not only was I extremely grateful to gain more filming and photography experience, it was fantastic to see the sights of the city and experience the southern American culture.
