In the first of what is expected to be ongoing coverage aired at www.uxbridgegazette.co.uk, the students produced highlights of a Hillingdon Borough vs London Tigers match.

Stacey Rooney, Kial Kerlew, Ashley Otu, Tim Mizon, Ribika Moktan, Michael Sedze, Hannah Berkeley, Joel Titus and Christopher Thomas are from Years 1 and 2 on the BTEC Level 3 Creative Media Production course.  They filmed the match and edited the footage using the professional standard Final Cut Pro software in the College’s state-of-the-art media centre, which was opened by HRH The Countess of Wessex in December 2011.

Paul Nataraj, Course Team Leader for Media and Game Design at Uxbridge College, said:

“This has been an excellent project for our students. We are constantly looking for industry-facing work which has relevant and live outcomes in order to bolster our curriculum and give students the grounding they require to succeed.

“The students who took part have been thoroughly professional in their conduct, from early pre-production meetings, and throughout the process.

“They worked extremely hard and professionally on the day of the shoot in terrible weather conditions, and were also diligent and focussed during post production. They have all very much enjoyed the challenge and have done Uxbridge College proud in creating work of this standard.

“We are now looking at getting together a team of students who can produce sports footage on a regular basis. Who knows – we might end up covering all kinds of events in the borough, from the Local Heroes competition to the Uxbridge Autoshow.”

Mort Smith, Community Editor at the Uxbridge Gazette, said:

"The Gazette has been working closely with Uxbridge College on the development of video clips filmed by students at the College for inclusion on our website. The enthusiasm of the team who produced this first video of a local football match was exceptional and the quality of the end product was first-class.

"The object of the exercise was to provide video coverage of non-league football that could not be obtained anywhere else - whilst enabling the students to see their work featured on a professional media website thus providing them with a unique addition to their portfolios.

"The football club, the newspaper and, we hope, the College students were all winners from this exercise. We are absolutely delighted at the outcome of this pilot project and we hope it will lead onto many more similar events in the future.

"The professionalism of all at the College has set a benchmark for all subsequent forays into the realm of student video for the local newspaper."
