Tuesday 12th November: Top Knot Video and Photo-Shoot

After our features meeting on Monday, where the idea arose for a video hair tutorial, I set to work the next morning to film, shoot and edit the piece in less than 24 hours. I researched techniques the previous night (as I am a self-proffessed amateur when it comes to hair) and was lucky enough to find a model to volunteer her time at short notice.  With the help of one of my team members, Meg Fisher, I was able to use two cameras to film the short clip – which lasted five minutes before editing. Although having booked out a marantz to record my voiceover, I decided to use the radio booth which gave the sound a much better quality. In addition, I took some still shots to use as my ‘before’ and ‘after’ images for the magazine spread.
