Filming For The Alice Hawkins Video

Last Sunday 24th October we began filming the first scenes for the Alice Hawkins video. The volunteers had previously had 3 training workshops in digital media and it was time to put those new skills to the test.

The day was split up into four seperate filming workshops, each at different locations. We had an 11 strong person crew. A great turnout indeed!

Each volunteers had the chance to participate in all of the different tasks required, such as cameraman, sound person, holding the light reflector, taking photos, working the dolly track etc. We even had a team with a second camera filming a “behind the scenes” documentary!

The locations we filmed at were:

  • Town Hall Square
  • Alice’s Home
  • Outside The Equity Shoes Factory
  • Alice’s Final Home 

Along with Peter Barratt presenting the video, we were joined by a lady called Dorothy who dressed up in an old suffragette costume and played Alice in several scenes. The weather was bright and sunny throughout the day and the filming was a real success.

After the filming, a few volunteers joined us for an editing workshop where we demonstrated how to take the footage from the camcorder tapes and the basic skills of editing the recordings.

4 filming workshops and 1 editing workshop resulted in an extremely productive day.
