Event videography – How does it work?
Video shooting at a charity event
My role was to operate the sound while my colleague Lily handled the video camera. For this particular event, we interviewed various different guests including British journalist Greg Dyke. They spoke about how amazing the community centre looked due to an extensive makeover that wouldn’t be possible without the inspirational people at the event. The party was very relaxed with everyone celebrating the success of the community centre with a live jazz band, food and drinks. I felt nervous at first because of the amount of people there is was overwhelming. I had never interviewed anyone in this kind of environment before however once I settled in, I quickly got myself together and started being the professional I am.
