Ted and Tamzin – FILMS ‘N’ THAT

Hello, we are Tamzin and Ted.

We have been on a week long work experience at Calling the Shots in Spike Island, were we wanted to learn about what it’s like to work within a professional production company. During our time, we were able to visit the Calling the Shots production office, take a trip to IFNOTNOW Digital and visit Films@59 post-production house, in Clifton. Our task for the week, was to create a podcast, using our own voices and recorded interviews to talk about the different job roles within the film and video industry, as well as create promotional material like gifs and photo stills to upload to social platforms like Facebook and Instagram to draw audiences towards our podcast.
