Last month Media Technology students were on hand at Glastonbury festival to offer technical support for some of the media operations. A team of our students spent a sweltering week at Pilton’s Worthy Farm, guaranteeing the department’s outside broadcast production vehicle.
This is the thirteenth year that Media Technology undergraduates have been involved with the festival and they were joined by students from journalism and television production. The students worked collaboratively to produce a range of material for indoor and outdoor screens at the Sonic Stage as well as camera documentary content for the festival organisers and international agencies.
Seasoned professionals are always highly impressed with the quality of the content produced by Solent and the professionalism of our students – this year montages of content were even used for the BBC Worldwide service.
