After completing all of our mini films and feeling very confident about our filming and editing skills, now it’s time to move onto Stage 2 of the Passions project – where we have to investigate a little bit of the history of our passion and interview older people who share the same passion as us. That should be easy… everyone loves Boxing, right?
The lads started by interviewing one of the elder statesmen of the Collyhurst and Moston club, Brian, who has had an over 30 years of involvement with the club.
The young men have completed their mini-films. They were asked to create a short biopics/mini-film, no more than a minute long that said something about themselves, their passion for boxing and what they think they get out of it. Every aspect of these films they have done themselves, from filming to writing to action and editing; a really impressive achievement in a few short weeks. Here’s a selection:
The basketballers hard at work, finishing their edits.
Frank’s doing some fine tuning on the audio and. with the music and noise of the guys training in the gym next door, he has to wear the headphones to hear his work.
This week the editing of mini films continues; below, Jack works away on his edit.
