Edinburgh College Broadcast Media students have taken a huge step towards developing their professionalism by working with the BBC to film the Scottish Gymnastics Championship. A crew of 12 students worked on the filming of the recent tournament at Bell’s Sports Centre in Perth.
Broadcast Media students have previously done outside broadcast work with the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU), filming club games as well as matches in the women’s and under-20s Six Nations tournaments. These were streamed live on the SRU’s YouTube channel. But the gymnastics competition was the first event of this type the students have covered with a multi-camera broadcast. The BBC paid the students and praised the quality of their work and their professionalism.
The project is supported by Edinburgh College Development Trust.
