Working with Bruizer
Recently, our Digital Leaders responded to a competition set by the ‘Get Set’ network and The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG). In a nutshell, our students designed a range of infovids explaining Olympic 2012 sport rules, to be shown on the ‘big screens’ at the events next summer. Amazingly, three of their ideas returned successful, accompanied with proposal update sheets ready for a filming session, to be held on site at Hamble College!
As a result Nick, Adam, Joshua, Sam and Jamie spent the most amazing Friday of their school lives working with production experts Olivia Boland, Andy Parsons and Jamie Niblock from production company Bruizer and LOCOG Education Programme Manager, Andy Martin. Not only were these guys experts in their field, they really ‘got our students.’ I mean it, I am not just saying it, they really did. They listened, supported and encouraged our students every inch of the way, every last inch. If only ‘we’ – the education community pushing Digital Leadership could create more opportunities like this for our learners in partnership with industry. Can anyone from The Schools Network here me? Olivia, your thoughts?
With extremely tight turnaround times on filming the students had already invested significant effort in pre-production. From the feedback I received, it was an amazing experience, that passed with minimal incident. I can not wait to see the final cut, I don’t know if we will be able to show it to you before 2012, but if I can, I most certainly will. A sincere thank you to everyone involved, Mr Fakhoury (Director of ICT), Miss Green (Director of PE), our students, LOCOG and Bruizer.
