In Erik Knudsen’s forthcoming feature film, The Raven On The Jetty, the main character, Thomas, played by Connor O’Hara, regularly plays a game on his tablet and on a couple of occasions this game is seen in the film. We decided to open up this part of the project to students and had discussions with Brooksby Melton College about this idea. They were very keen to provide opportunities for their students to work on a live brief, so we set about creating a design brief for them. Students from the HND in Creative Media Production took on the challenge as part of their formal project assignments.
It was a good experience for all concerned. The students seem to have had a great time working to a live brief and we at One Day Films have had a great time working with them on this project. Students have been able to create some stunning work that is going to fit in brilliantly with the film. We have taken delivery of the clips and are in the process of incorporating this material into the full film. In this VLOG 21, Mark Duggan visits Brooksby Melton College and speaks with some of the staff and students to reveal how they went about the task. Enjoy:
