Three HND TV students have raised almost £500 for Maggie’s Cancer Centres. Brian McGovern, Liam Stuart and Ryan Cunningham filmed the Just Dance charity event which took place at Glasgow’s Crown Plaza in November.
Five hundred people attended the glitzy event and watched seven couples battle it out on the dance floor. Brian and his classmates covered the event using five different cameras and the whole range of the TV skills they’ve developed on their course.
After a week in editing Brian produced the programme, along the lines of Strictly Come Dancing, which was then dubbed to DVD and sold to those who had attended the event. Raising almost £500 and giving all their time and expertise for free, Brian said:
“It was a great event to be a part of. We gained lots of experience and made many contacts to help get our new business off the ground. Without having the multi-camera studio experience in last year’s HND year one we would never have been able to co-ordinate such a complicated shoot.”
Brian McGovern and Ryan Cunningham established their own production company, Monkey Box Films in 2015. They have already worked on three fairly big weddings, completed promo videos for Costa Coffee and Snow Factor, and music videos for Mount Doubt and Little Eye.
