Pupil gains work experience as TV runner

We were thrilled that former pupil Johannes, an aspiring broadcast journalist, was able to gain some work experience as a TV production runner during the recent filming at Downside.

Johannes learns from sound engineer, Doug.

Working closely with our Marketing Manager, Johannes was able to assist in setting up shots with the cameraman and sound engineer, and learn how the director plans and coordinates a shoot; he was delighted to have been able to spend time working with the crew.

Our talented Head Chef, James, also helped with the BBC Four programme… he assisted Fr Christopher in preparing many, many loaves of sourdough bread! 

A fantastic experience for the aspiring broadcast journalist!
