A Weeks Work Experience with RMV Productions

Hello, my name is Tobias Greenwood and I am a Media student from St. Paul’s Catholic College in Burgess Hill. I have a huge interest in the media industry (television production) so¬†being accepted for work experience with RMV productions was a huge privilege. Creative Director Pete asked me to keep a diary of my week, so here is all the fun I got up to…

 

MONDAY – DAY 1

It’s the 3rd of July and lucky for me it’s a sunny Monday morning in Horsham! The time has come for a new step in my life (Work experience) and what better way than spending it with RMV Productions.

I arrived at 10am and the boss of RMVP greeted me and showed me around the office Рwhere the world surrenders to the genius minds of the crew. Swiftly after this I met Matthew the studio assistant, who was full of enthusiasm. (I think mostly because for this week he would no longer be the most junior member of staff!) The first task of the day was to clear out a large storage cupboard in order to prepare it for becoming the new audio recording booth, which will shortly be a key aspect in the creative production line at RMVP.

After lunch I was eager to find out more about the creative media production and had a chance to talk to Peter about his career and the television media industry in general. Following this I watched tutorials for the BlackMagic 4K cinema camera which I would be using the following day (I was extremely excited for this privilege.)

After hours of intriguing enjoyment about working for RMV productions, the day came to an end РI have never been more fascinated or enjoyed learning more than I did today.  

TUESDAY¬†–¬†PLANNING/SHOOTING VIDEO

There are so many cheesy lines that could describe my excitement to start another day of work experience, but none of them could truly get close to the leap out the door I made to arrive for my 10 o’clock start at the RMVP offices! With another warm welcome from Peter and what came close to the perfect cup of tea. Once again another media packed day.

Firstly we planned our shoot around the brief that we got given by Peter, to create a tourism promo for Horsham aimed at ‘millennials’. This was great practice for me as I’m known for my thoughtful planning in A – level media. At around 12 the highlight of my day arrived… The Blackmagic 4K camera! This was certainly an experience to say the slightest, with its modern touch and 4K definition (Including the ability to change the codex from RAW to ProRes). From arrival, we took it around Horsham town and shot some footage which was the definition of interesting, as we winded through the historical streets finding the perfect shot.

 

WEDNESDAY¬†–¬†EDITING

Another 7am wake up. On this hot British humid morning, I arrived and thank god we have a coo office! As a result this was perfect for the long day of editing ahead. Some may find this dull, but for me it never gets old. While editing with Premiere Pro I learned many new features that will in the future boost my knowledge in editing, as an example Pete taught me how to color grade efficiently – this was important as it boosts the colors in the image to help you achieve an effect. My editing was successful as the product started to look more fined tuned, compared to a bunch of images put together.
My favourite part of editing today was certainly using my creativity to create an outstanding show real for RMV productions. After 7 hours of sitting on my leather lined seat and staring at the state of the art RMV technology, what felt like an hour had quickly ended to lead me to the end of the day.

Here’s the reel I cut:

 

THURSDAY¬†–¬†FILMING

The final day of filming has came upon us, with a pleasant overcast sky that would help with subtle lighting for our filming throughout the day. We went to great lengths to get the satisfactory shot that we deserved, one of which was trekking up a long path to Denne Hill to get an overview of Horsham. This was essential as it gave the audience a view of Horsham from a different angle, therefore boosting our narrative of the story.

Furthermore we continued to get creative shots around Horsham (park, town, suburbs, outer suburbs) this was also interesting for me as I got to know Horsham better. One of my favourite parts of filming today was using my creativity to get shots that others may of not thought of, furthermore my favourite location to film was at the park, this is because the ducks and swans were there. As a result we used our creativity to get videos which could be used in our short promo. Once finished filming we headed back to the office where we cooled down and started the editing the final promo for Friday!

FRIDAY¬†–¬†FINAL DAY

The dreaded final day has arrived this week has zoomed past… yet I have gained so much memories that I will remember for the coming years. While working at RMV Productions I have enjoyed everything from making teas (my generosity) to shooting with 4K cameras.

Today I finished editing both my projects which I am extremely proud to say I made ‚ÄúHorsham Promo‚ÄĚ and editing the ‚ÄúShow Reel‚ÄĚ. This took a lot of time and effort, but the final product is the best edit i’ve ever made, which I am extremely proud of!

Hopefully in the future I will be joining Pete and the team again for an internship experience. ¬†I’d also like to say a Huge thank you to Matt for giving me company and assisting me filming. Thank you!

STEP BY STEP GUIDE: To the Best Interview

RMV Productions Team on set for Tom Prior

So you’ve decided you want to film a business interview or piece to camera. But that means you have to appear in front of the camera. Pretty scary right? We’ll fret no more, we’re here to help you produce the best interview ever!

It’s very easy, in the video production process, to become preoccupied with a creative idea and the technology behind it. But it’s important to remember that even the most creative treatment or exciting new piece of kit is merely a device to enable a subject or story to be captured. When filming an interview there are a few simple things to consider which will help you and your production company get it right and produce the best interview ever.

The ‚Äėlook‚Äô and ‚Äėfeel‚Äô of a video is not only affected by camera choice, lenses, and lighting, but also, and perhaps more importantly, by its contributors. The way you look and come across on camera is of paramount importance and in many cases will dictate the effectiveness of the finished film.¬†To most people sitting opposite a camera is extremely alien and uncomfortable. It is our job to help you feel relaxed and able to deliver your message effectively. At RMV Productions we pride ourselves on how we work with you, the client. We want to make you look good on camera and we want you to enjoy the process.

This blog will give you some guidance on how we help to get the very best interview out of you on camera.¬†Here we draw on our experience of working not just with some of the most recognisable faces in the world, but also ‚Äėeveryday‚Äô people who often don‚Äôt want to be in front of a camera.
