Here we are, the day of our seminar, finally able to see where our hard work has gotten us!
So us camera crew (Miguel, Dan and I) met at the tech office in building 9 at 2.30 to collect our gear and take it to the lecture theatre. At this point we had a pretty clear idea of how we wanted it to be set up and how we were going to work with the audio, but we were still going to play around a bit with positioning to see if we could do better.
Once we got to the lecture theatre we had to wait for the previous class to finish, this gave us time to relax and have a brief meeting to go over everything with everyone else in the group. We then went and unpacked everything and began setting up the cameras once we were allowed in to the room.
I operated the stable camera that had a wide shot capturing all the guests and the screen behind.
When the seminar started, everything was going so amazing until the fire alarm went off and interrupted everything! Luckily 20 minutes later we were back in the theatre and continued, and it still managed to be a great seminar and the guests were super interesting.
We ended on a great note and then packed up the lecture theatre as best we could.
Dan and i edited the highlight reel for our seminar as the final contribution and submitted it in.
Overall I was super happy with how our seminar turned out and I think our whole team did an amazing job!
