Archiving and Archive

Eurovision WebsiteEurovision is soon to be upon us and as part of the website I am currently collating the winners from the past.

I think that’s one of the great things about working at the BBC… the archives. With just a search on the BBC intranet, you can get tapes from yesteryear… even things in Black and White!

I’ll be clipping everything in Final Cut Pro this time I think as I haven’t used it for a couple of weeks.

I always think it’s strange when go from using one editing software to another.

It’s almost like you are a translator but instead of a interpretingĀ a verbal language, it’s an editing language.

Whilst doing this, I’m also archiving all the clips I did for SYTYCD so I can send them to contributors etc.

It also means that I have copy of everything I have done, not only for my showreel but also, in case anything happens legally that means I have to provide a version.

I know the chance of anyone questioning anything is very slim after it has been complied, but it’s better to be safe!
