The first session at Collyhurst and Moston Boxing Club: the lads were a little nervous but Jim and Sue who are working with them said it couldn’t be as bad as facing an opponent in the ring… they weren’t sure!
Unsurprisingly the Boxers identified the Rocky films as the most iconic series of films about Boxing. Sue managed to bring the whole gym to a complete silent standstill when she sheepishly admitted that she had never seen any of them. She was sent home to watch Rocky one – she may be here with Jim to teach the lads about film making but education works both ways and she has to watch Rocky as her homework!
Here we’re getting to grips with the cameras, comparing hand held with using a tripod and seeing the difference this makes.
We even interviewed the coach – the famous Tommy McDonagh. We liked the raw fluid effect of the hand held camera but recognised that using a tripod does make the film look more professional and less wobbly!
