I’ve been working for Lancaster University-based Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (North West Coast) since 2015. I have produced a series of short films to share knowledge and help to explain some aspects of the Collaboration to the general public.
A quarterly workshop is run by the public reference panel to explore some terms and principles within the CLAHRC NWC collaboration.
Focusing on a different topic each time, the panel works with a session leader to help build learning for public advisers and improve connections within CLAHRC NWC.
I’ve covered workshops and conferences in Liverpool and Warrington. The topics covered are interesting but quite complex. As the filmmaker, I need to understand what I am covering in a way that I can then convey it to a wider audience which maybe is not familiar with the subject and terminology.
Workshops are filmed in full HD and I use radio and solid state microphones for sound production. I have to create the story ‘on the fly’ which is challenging but I like a challenge! Issues and discussions unfold in front of me and so I have to compile my edit in my head as I go along. This flies in the face of how I normally film – Normally, in film, you plan as much as you can to maximise efficiency. In this case, I am having to respond to what I see before me. I like it! It makes me listen harder and concentrate.
