One of 25 vlogs from first year students at University of Bristol.
As a company we oversaw and facilitated this, the University's first major student vlogging project. We helped select the vloggers, 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 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!
