Well firstly apologies for the lack of blogging over the past few weeks. Not sure whether you have heard but Strictly Come Dancing is on and it feels like if I’m not working or travelling, I’m sleeping!
I’ve therefore decided to write weekly blogs….genius! That way you still have something fascinating and intriguing to read at dinnertime 😉
Anyway it’s been a massive learning curve since early September.
At first, I edited together the Strictly promotional trails that aired on BBC 1 just before EastEnders.
It was crazy having to have my edited stuff tech reviewed and as for ‘edit suite’ or should I really say, a laptop with headphones and a borrowed digi deck for playout. Nothing like Multiplatform.
The best bit was passing the tech review everyday. As the trails were being broadcast on television, they had to be checked before going out; making sure the sound wasn’t too high or low,and that the brightness didn’t peak.
Considering I didn’t have speakers or a surround sound to work with, it meant being even more careful. But a bit of colour correction here and there and making sure the sound touched yellow seemed to work.
Next Week: Read about the camera crew that are following me around this Friday…that’s right, I shall be in front of the camera for a change…eek!
