Budding Media Buffs Learn Tricks of the Trade
It was a case of lights, camera and action for students from City of Wolverhampton College, when they were visited by a BBC journalist.
Professional video journalist Paul Miles, who is the BBC’s Training Manager for Mobile & Video Journalism, spent the day with students on the Level 3 Media Production course, teaching them the tricks of the trade.
The 24-strong class were offered advice on reporting and interview techniques before being challenged to film a short piece in the college’s engineering block.
Lecturer Peter Cole said: “Paul has a fantastic experience in the television industry and was able to give the students a fascinating insight into the media world. His tips and advice were invaluable and the students had great fun working with him to put together a news piece.”
