Martial Arts Training at Hutton Hall

Today I went down to Hutton Hall to record a piece for my Online Journalism Masters course. I spoke to Mohammed Zahir who runs the classes about how he became involved and what the classes entail.

Update: You can read my full posting on the Commpact:Europe website here.

Editing the Turkish video

leave a comment »

As the final project on my Online Journalism Masters course, I am creating a website for community group Commpact:Europe.

During a recent visit of a delegation from Turkey, the guests were given Flip cameras to record what happened during their trip.

I recently got hold of the footage but was disappointed to see that they had regularly turned the cameras on their side, as you would with a mobile phone, meaning a large proportion of the film was recoded sideways on and when rotated, had a very narrow view.

This meant that a lot of the film was unusable, but using some footage I had previously shot, along with the film I could use from the Flip cameras, I managed to put together a short review of their visit which you can see below.
