Since my last article in November I have been flat out working on a large range of different projects both for the course and outside. We have recently finished our IPTV studio unit for which we decided to create a music show that would help to promote local artists. The project was very stressful at the start but once we organised all of our artists and got going it was very enjoyable and rewarding. We are now hoping to film a lot more studio sessions with a range of local musicians on a regular basis.

I was lucky enough to meet local film maker Dean Huson and have since been helping him when needed on his current documentary Whats Real The Evolution of Hip Hop A documentary that looks at the development of the genre, talks about how and why Hip Hop stared, its influence and how it can be used as medium for positive social change. Working on this project has been a great experience for me and as a hip hop fan it has been a complete pleasure to work on with amazing experiences like meeting and filming an interview with legendary Hip Hop duo Dead Prez.

At the end of last month we got the chance to attend BVE in London, something I had been wanting to do for a while but was sadly unable to attend the previous year. As the camera geek of the group I had been really looking forward to BVE as it was a chance for me to look at and get hands on with all of the equipment I had been drooling at on the internet for the past year.

We have recently been lucky enough to have a talk from Gareth Unwin producer of The Kings Speech among other films. Gareths talk was fantastic, it gave me a great insight into his life and how he got into the industry but the main thing I really enjoyed was that he individually asked us all what we wanted to do and gave us guidance on how we could go about making our next step. We were also allowed to watch a sneak peak for a programme that was about to be pitched to a large television company, it was fantastic looking at his work and being given advice from an award-winning producers work.

We have recently started work planning our final pieces. Our brief is quite loose which allows us to be creative with ideas, the only restriction is that it has to over 15minutes in length. After watching a range of videos and brainstorming a few ideas myself, Joseph and Matthew have started to plan and script a short film about deceit and abduction which we are hoping to start filming at the start of April.

What is the JT-NM Tested Program
Bruce Devlin - new The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2019 has come and gone with the usual onslaught of product announcements, launch parties, demonstrations and the usual high-density crowds preventing any high-speed movement between halls. The IP showcase, this year, featured a JT-NM tested program. If you're unfamiliar with the JT-NM, then it's worth checking out their website jt-nm.org where you can find out about the work being done to coordinate the different aspects of building an inter-working ST 2110 eco-system. The JT-NM tested program catalogue can be downloaded from the website and it highlights a series of tests that were performed prior to NAB on various products to see how they performed against the written standards upon which the ST 2110 eco system is based.

IMF Adoption
Howard Twine The Interoperable Master Format isn’t new. It’s been around for more than six years. Despite this longevity, the broad adoption since the publication of SMPTE 2067 has been pretty slow. This is perhaps more because of the age old mantra “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” than the ease with which many could interpret the standard. However, it is safe to say that movie producers blazed a trail in using IMF for original content delivery. Perhaps the key is that those early adopters didn’t have any significant tape based infrastructure that had been modified for file-based working when receiving content. So, many longer established content distributors have the immense resources to create the vast array of versions required to address the ‘version issue.’ This being how do you get the same content to look good on the back of an aeroplane seat headrest or an iPhone in the back of car as well as a good old TV set. Over time these resources have been diminishing and many organisations recognise that they have to adopt workflow automation to survive.

TV Futures - Producers Produce
Emily Merritt I’ve learnt two major facts about being a producer since studying on my BSc Television and Broadcasting course: ‘the role of producer cannot be defined in a sentence’ and ‘if your team don’t see you working, you’re doing your role as producer correctly’.
