Quite a lot has happened since my last article here with tv-bay in January!

Previously I mentioned how we where working on a 25-30 minute IPTV music show and since then have finished that project with a high merit. We cut the final project up into sections to give to the talent their part of the show; they all were extremely pleased with the results that they wish to come back and record some more with us very soon! It would definitely be a pleasure to work with them again!

Currently at the moment Rhiannon and myself are in the planning stages for our final major project where the brief itself is quite loose which gives us plenty more room for our own creativity!

One of the ideas that we had floating about was a small independent company that work with light mapping, going to festivals and other events. It would have been extremely visually pleasing and different to film a short documentary about this. Another idea was a parkour documentary. Im very much in the scene and know some of the parkour legends as well as most of the locals and it would be interesting to see their different perspectives on how it has changed their lives for the better. Many have changed their lives around by getting out of crime, drugs, and depression¦to simple things like new social networks and challenge the body and mind. I think I will do this as a side project that I will work on in my own time.

The idea that we have chosen is to do a documentary on Nothe Fort, the old fort that would defend the coast during WW2, which has now been converted into a museum, we went with this because of the different events they hold. We are only in the pre-production stages at this time, but I am excited to move forward with it!

A group of us have recently made our own small independent media company called TwoFive6 and have set up a Youtube channel to upload all of our productions. It is a great way to get our names out there and potentially receive work. To individually put me out there I need to make a show reel of my work, so I am also working on that on top of everything else. I have built up quite a collection of clips and constantly getting more all the time. Im very excited working on this as it means I can really be as creative as I want to be and I sure am going to take full advantage of that. For now it is just finding the right music I want for it that is royalty free, which seems to be a problem at the moment. Ill get there in the end!

Next year I will be doing a top-up course for me to reach a full degree, I have recently just received 2 offers from different unis which is turning out to be a stressful choice and one of the bigger decisions Ive made. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for me.

IBC in a post Brexit world
Peter Savage 2 Cast your mind forward and we are not in 2018 but next year and, yes, it’s you and me walking to the departure lounge to catch the plane to IBC just as I, and perhaps also you, have done for the last 25 years. (By the way, where is my long service award – and perhaps a new pair of shoes as I must, surely, have walked the equivalent of five Caminos covering the 12 halls in the Rai). We are at the gate and my imagination kicks in as I hypothesize on what the trip might look like next year. I leave it to you to decide which is closest to what might be to come.

Ruth Matos Interview - A Career Unfolds
Ruth Matos We first met Ruth when we employed her as a student to help with our live studio at BVE in 2013. We were struck by her determination, passion and ‘I’ll do anything to help’ attitude. We became friends of Facebook and have since seen her career in the industry develop and unfold. We thought it was about time to catch up and share her inspiring story of where she is now, how she got there and the challenges she has faced along the way.

Live audio contribution over wireless networks
Pablo Rodrigues Altmann Wireless “live” contribution from anywhere at any time, this is the ultimate goal for most news reporters. The old favorite of using ISDN is becoming harder and much more expensive to access easily. Today most of us use wireless daily, in particular Wifi and HSPA/LTE 4G networks. These are now mature technologies and widely used for many applications in the home and whilst out and about. However there are still some professionals who prefer to persevere with the traditional, costly and limited ISDN communication technology before jumping into the wireless era.
