Whilst at Loughborough University, I made some videos for my hall Hazlerigg-Rutland, or Rigg-Rut for short. I became one of the media reps on the hall committee as a fresher, which meant filming and photographing events, as well as producing other media surrounding the hall.
The first video I produced was for Winter Ball in December 2015. It’s just a short highlights video, showcasing the evening featuring many of the people from the hall. The video got a good response and people liked it…
Best student video I’ve seen since I’ve got here, amazing work Gareth
Following the success of the Winter Ball video, I made a fairly similar video for Summer Ball. It was slightly higher production value – I used my camera gimbal to get the smooth shots at the start where there was lots of space, where a wide angle looks really good. The D750 was great in the low light at the hall and the slow-mo worked well. I was pretty happy with it and it was very well received, it got over 8000 views on Facebook, with lots of shares and comments:
This video is INSANE Gareth well done
Gareth’s videos are always so slick
Hats off to your media rep! V good video
I then went on to make the subsequent winter ball and summer ball videos.
