Multimedia Producer Portfolio Update
This month, I’ve produced more than 1,000 GIFs to advertise courses within all the five faculties of the University of Portsmouth, I’ve been on more than 6 off-site and on-site shoots to produce various different video pieces of content as well as rebranded 60+ videos and produced a new podcast that will be launched in the new year.
Take a look below at just some of the projects I’ve been working on:
Research and Innovation
The University of Portsmouth is leading the war on global plastics and as part of this initiative, Professor John McGeehan presented at the EmTech Hong Kong. This video was filmed by an external company but I was tasked with adding McGeehan’s presentation to the video as well as adding the subtitles.
In addition to Professor John McGeehan’s presentation, I also re-branded and edited a visual short video presentation that’s used in his international presentation.
Chancellor’s Dinner Announcements
Every year the University of Portsmouth host their Chancellor’s Dinner. An annual evening that hosts prestigious guests who talk about their life experiences in front of a usually, sold-out crowd.
I was set the task of editing four different videos that were used to announce the Chancellor’s guests that were used across social media and mail outs.
Most of my colleagues will be aware that November proved to be a bit overwhelming due to the request that came in that saw me produce more than 1,000 GIFs which were course specific and will be used across various websites. Each course had around 20 GIFs that needed packaging and with a tight deadline, I managed to turn more than 1,000 around within four working days.
There’s nothing I love more than seeing the enthusiasm a video receives when posted online. Within the first 24 hours, this particular video receive more than 15,000 views as it highlights the fortifications left since Portsmouth was only just a town. It’s also the destination of where the new £52m sporting facility will be built, but the university have used this time to dig up the earth and had archaeologists record the data for future records before building commences.
We were lucky enough to be involved with filming a short 30 second video that used footage of our first ever commercially commissioned drone footage. A particular thanks to my colleague Lexa Wokersien as well as a special thanks to pilot, Martin Schaefer for this one!
Tomorrow’s Engineering Week took place in November, so I joined the press team in producing this interview with Antigoni Barouni concerning her research at the University.
Remembrance Sunday Service is always a busy events, but with the cenotaph not being very visible in the square, students from the BSc Television and Broadcasting course — led by myself and two colleagues from the course — provided all the angles needed to fully enjoy the event whilst stood in Guildhall Square. The event is live streamed and displayed on the Big Screen for all to see and at points whilst this was happening, I captured the students setting up, working and packing down during the full event and produced this 30 second awareness video which was distributed across social media.
Additionally, I recently filmed, edited, subtitled the Vice-Chancellor’s address as well as doing the same for the open days, delivering various edits and formats for the different uses.
