Filming for Your Country Needs You

 Over the next couple of days I am lucky to be involved with the build up to Your Country Needs You which is on BBC 1, Friday 12th March at 20:30!

Shooting Schedule for TursdayToday we are going to grab the 6 finalists as they exit the studio, asking them about how they are getting on.

Back to the office and after a quick edit the clip published on the website later today.

Then tomorrow I am off to interview members of the public as they wait to enter the studio.

There’s quite a following on Twitter and it will be interesting to finally put screen names to faces.

As I edit the audience clips together to publish on the website I shall be sticking around to film an interview with the winner after the live show.

Once again, the winner’s interview will be edited and published before we go home.

Phew!

Let’s just recap my checklist…
Call Sheet…. Done
Filming Permit…. Done
Risk Assessment…. Done
Batteries charged…. Yep
Tape stock…. Plenty

It’ll be a great chance to work to such tight deadlines.Risk Assessment for filming

 There’s nothing quite like running round TVC with a film permit, a call sheet, a risk assessment, the equipment, and a song for the nation in your heart…
