Live Event Coverage of the Kent School Games 2016. The 2 day shoot for this piece involved filming a volunteer training day together with the ‘level 3′ main event, which involved 1500 competitors from around Kent aged 5-14.
The Games are held every 2 years, and this year we were fortunate enough to win the Kent County Council tender to provide coverage, with an angle specifically on the volunteering experience.
We provided SteadiCam (Ronin) camera coverage, a multitude of vox pops on the days, and got the volunteers themselves to provide a video diary from their smart-phones. Officials were mic’d up for their events, some even had a Go Pro camera strapped to their chests, and all in all we hope we’ve managed to produce something a little different, with a quality to represent the key values of the Games – Self Belief, Respect, Teamwork, Honest, Passion and Determination.
