We have had a busy few months in the television studio, with it being heavily used by the Media students, academics and departments across the University. The studio has been running flat out from 0900 to 17:00 Monday to Friday!
Here are just a few of the highlights:
In terms of students, Film and TV students have been producing light entertainment shows and children’s television shows, with the 3rd year students finishing and polishing their final projects. There are also some of our students who have been producing content for a magazine style show called ‘Lancashire Fresh Event’, and this is tied to producing content for Bay TV.
Two students within the Department of Media, James Ibbitson and Kevin Robinson have produced a film called “A Fall From Grace” which is a political drama set in the months following the end of the Second World War. Internal production shoots took place within our HD studio and the staff common room, it’s a very professional piece of work, and has its own website that was designed by the 2 students to promote their work. Visit their website to see. www.afallfromgrace.co.uk
For those as old as me who remember the band Hawkwind, it was exciting to have the band member, Steve Bainbridge in the studio. He was being interviewed by Steve Jansen, screen writer and author; this was for a creative writing project.
We have also been working with Faculty of Health and Social Care staff who have used the studio to produce content to support carers and children with disabilities.
Media Academics have been utilising the facilities to provide content for promotional information, and we are seeing requests from other areas of the university, HR being one of the departments taking advantage of new media, to promote what it’s like working for Edge Hill University, getting the word out there into the employment market place.
