What A great week it has been! although lock-down was a welcomed blessing for me it was nice to be involved in the FIFAe World Cup 2021 as a Runner/Covid Supervisor.
WIF&E's very own Gavin James Roberts was Maidstone Studio's In-house runner for the show, so it was great to see him, last time we saw each other was when we filmed an interview back before the lockdown,
The hours are always long on a studio production but this is not a 'Normal' industry to be in, so if you don't like long days and unsociable hours then this work is defiantly not for you.
The producer Lee was very welcoming and friendly as where all the team, I had to come up with nick names for some of the crew though because I found that most of them where called Andy, Greg or Matt (Note: Please judge the type of production before you make up nick names).
The Studio Crew was very Male Dominated, in fact at Maidstone we where the only 2 females on the production crew! It made me think about what our sole purpose is a an organisation and production company.
All of the department where very happy to answer any questions that we had and even some of them passed on our information to big studios (where some high profile productions happen)
Paul from PR Entertainment, let me sit in his top of the range 'Range Rover' which only feed my hunger to want to work harder to get one of those bad boys! and he was telling me about some robots in Milton Kynes, now I am not sure if he was joking or not as his eyes didn't give anything away.
We also got the chance to be stand ins (Standing in the place of where the cast will be for the camera's to rehearse) which is nothing knew for us, this is usually a slandered first year student role at our university.
Over all it has been an amazing week, I will upload pictures soon as still at the studio.
Please bare with us in regards to the website as well, as you know we started this organisation last year and work has been slow for all, but coming up to summer and out of lock-down we will be putting up more profiles and getting involved in more projects, we will also be doing a jobs page .... Coming soon ... for people who may miss adverts.
