Fall Colors & Sounds

A visit to Ann Morrison Park in Boise, Idaho, part of the green belt that runs through the city along the Boise River.

The temperature in Boise can change rapidly. In the park at time of filming, it was 28°F (-2°C) but it would rise into the 60s in the afternoon. Perhaps this contributes to the beauty of the place and the vibrant autumn colours.

Filmed in Ann Morrison Park, Boise, Idaho, October 2017.

Manchester Thunderstorm, 10th September 2017

After a sunny late afternoon, Manchester was suddenly struck by a thunderstorm.
After the first flash of lightning, I quickly set up the camera and filmed the storm from my livingroom, in slow motion.

Shot at 96fps
One section slowed down to 10% of that to show the detailed progression of the lightning fork.

Over To You - BBC Radio Manchester

I was lucky enough to take part in BBC Radio Manchester Over To You project where 100 people from the region took on various roles in the station over one week in March.

The team liked the idea I pitched so I made a report talking to students who have come to Manchester from overseas to ask them what they think of the city.

On the day, I was mentored by BBC Journalist of the Year, Richard Stead. The report was recorded at the Fielden campus of The Manchester College. We then took it back to Salford Quays where I edited it. We then wrote a cue for the presenter to introduce the piece.

A few weeks later, many of the people who took part in the project were interviewed on a live show.

The recording includes the original broadcast report (including cue), as well as the interview that followed a few weeks later.

It was an incredible and rewarding experience and hopefully not the last. I can, however, now include BBC Radio Reporter on my CV!

Coming Over Here

Skip to 30 seconds for main film.

My final video assignment for the first year of FdA Broadcast Production at The Manchester College. A shortform documentary produced in the style of BBC Three, hence the bars and tone at the beginning and other parts usually included but not usually broadcast.

With much of the media portraying immigrants in such a negative light, I decided to show the real reasons why people come to the UK and the challenges they face.

Many thanks to Amaia, Sara and Jack for sharing their stories.
