Budding directors given invaluable experience at Brighton Dome
Young people who dream of working in film were given invaluable hands-on experience of working with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment at Brighton Dome.
The students were able to live stream approximately a dozen shows during Brighton Festival, including high profile events such as The Great Enormo, The Guardian Education Debate and The Tiger Lillies.
This year’s Brighton Festival live streams reached more than 5,000 online and digital viewers.
“The students showed so much dedication with the hard work and many hours they put into this project”, said City College film technician Jim Lee.
“They’ve come away with some fantastic hands-on experience which they’re really keen to build on.” Student Louise Germaine says: “The best thing about this project was that it was giving us a real insight into working on live events and coping with the different demands and stresses.”
Carole Britten, Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival’s director of marketing, said the live streams had proved to be very successful, reaching new audiences and extending the opportunity to reach new audiences.
“It’s great to be working in partnership with City College to produce live streams of performances at Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival which proved to be really successful in terms of reaching new audiences and extending the opportunity to experience events, ” she added.
“It was really pleasing to see the students respond so well to the opportunity of working in a major arts venue and gain valuable real experience of filming live events as well as an understanding of the new technology involved to deliver live streaming which we hope will help them in their future careers.”
Brighton Dome is able to regularly live stream events so they can be viewed on computers and smart phones thanks to a generous grant from the Arts Council.
