Pupil gains work experience as TV runner
01 Nov 2017
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.
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!
If you haven’t yet watched the programme, it’s available now on the BBC iPlayer, click here for the link.
