A Remembrance Day Service is the first film project to be declared ‘a wrap’ by Future Flame Productions; a company led by Walsall College’s media students.
The 10-minute film showcased how the college’s public services students and staff were paying tribute to those who served. This included everyone observing a two-minute silence in the main campus atrium. The production also captured a shower of poppies descending to the ground around the assembled group.
The final cut was broadcast on the morning of November 11th in classrooms across the college. It was also shared online, with praise pouring in from everyone.
“Filming for a college assignment and filming for an outside audience are two very different things,” said Level 3 media student, Katie Keeling. “There’s extra pressure on you to get things absolutely right. The more experience we have of this now, the better for our careers in future.
“I enjoyed filming the public services students’ Remembrance Day service; adding other footage and images to give another kind of recognition to armed forces personnel. It’s definitely the work I want to keep on doing.”
Alice Djukic added: “This was a fun experience to participate in. And a bit of learning curve. It will definitely benefit us in the future, when we’re out in the real world, in terms of having actual experience that boosts our confidence with filming and editing.”
“There’s pride in stepping back from a project like this afterwards. Watching the finished piece and thinking ‘I did that’. We’re all hungry for more opportunities like these.”
