As a company we oversaw and facilitated this, the University of Bristol's first major student vlogging project.
We helped select the vloggers and advised on specialist kit and shooting techniques to make the best of filming on their existing smartphones. We reviewed footage throughout the term-long project and helped develop coherent storylines from a mass of shot material.
Crucial to the project was our young apprentice Josh, who spent a lot of time immersed with the vloggers helping their filmmaking. Josh also brought a youthful eye to the edits.
The various vloggers all approached the project differently. Some shot only short snippets of their lives and needed more help in shooting connecting pieces to tie the footage together. Others shot huge amounts of video, both of actuality and contemplation. One even produced a couple of stop-motion animations entirely on her own!
Vlog examples above and below.
“Beeston Media worked alongside us to produce some short student vlogger films. They were quick to get to the heart of our brief and work alongside our students to help them get the best out of their films. They were a great team to work with and we were really pleased with the results.”
