25 Sep ITV Documentary filmed at JRCS
On Friday 18th September ITV came to JRCS to film a new documentary with Alison Hammond.
The inquisitive and excited Media Students of Year 12 and 13 had an opportunity to watch the crew in action and to ask questions. The questions ranged from “What is your work/life balance like?” to “How did you get into the industry?” The ITV crew were very accommodating and showed the classes how they film and edit, sending all the footage to editors back at the studio who were feeding back live. They discussed university choices and what it is like being a freelancer.
Ms Harland, Head of Media, said “I am so very proud of the Sixth Form students. They showed such maturity and intelligence, asking relevant and insightful questions. The ITV crew enjoyed speaking with them and offered advice on work experience. The crew coming to JRCS has changed some of our students’ lives.” Ellie in Year 13 said: “This has been such an important day for me. I now know what I want to do with my life. I feel so overwhelmed with how welcoming and kind the crew were. Thank you so much to ITV and Jo Richardson for giving me this opportunity”.
Some of the advice given to Ashley, Jack and Ellie was:
- Have a passion and follow that passion. Live your passion.
- Be nice to people on the way up because you never know when you will see them again.
- Don’t give up. You will get knocked back but don’t let that hold you back.
- Get experience in whatever way you can, whenever you can.
