One of the best things about working at Manchester Video is the variety of jobs we see. Here’s a brief summary of some of the things we’ve been doing so far this month.
A wide range of video evidence has been processed this month. We have clarified CCTV footage from serious road traffic accidents and processed video evidence in a number of criminal cases. Video evidence from cases we worked on late last year was featured in high profile reports on Sky News and BBC News (having been released by the court).
It’s been quite a while since we were last in the classroom. However, we’ve just completed a three camera shoot of a two hour English lesson which will form part of an international teacher training package for our client. The project includes a number of expert talks and interviews recorded by us over the last year plus archival footage gathered from various countries.
The highlight of the month was a repeat order for some promotional DVDs for a documentary film about the Beatles. On another note we also made one hundred discs full of photographs of dining chairs. The chairs were very nice and the photography was superb – but not quite in the same league as the fab four.
We transferred a series of audio cassettes onto CD. The tapes were recorded in 1977 and contained interviews with an elderly resident of Haughton Green, Denton. His local accent was very strong and his stories recalling life in the early 20th century were quite remarkable.
