Next generation of Wildlife presenters

Over the last three days an enthusiastic crew of S2’s and S3’s took part in a BBC Scotland L.A.B. workshop, learning how to film, edit and interview. Everyone learnt many new skills and showed excellent teamwork and communication skills.  The crew have created several short films that will be shown online and on social media.  The first film “Autumn in Strathspey” can be viewed here https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07sjkg8  Another film about living in Strathspey will be available soon.  Pupils also recorded their hopes for 2020, these clips will be used alongside other Scottish schools in a film to be shown online in early 2020.  

The group took the chance to visit the BBC Autumn Watch set at Abernethy, they had a tour of the site and the outside broadcast trailer.  Everyone got to meet the presenters, Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan.  Thea and Alasdair in S2 were selected to record an interview with the presenters, led by director Olivia (S3) and their film crew, Fraser(S3) on camera, Sophie(S3) on sound and Robert(S2). Catch Autumn Watch on TV tonight to see the result of their work.

Very well done to everyone who was involved and a big thanks to the BBC Scotland L.A.B. team for their expertise, patience and sense of fun!
