Adam Moss (class of 2010) recently completed working on the OFFICIAL FILM of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
A documentary called FIRST which follows 12 first time Olympians on their journey.
Directed by Caroline Rowland FIRST is a co-production with Mango Films, Southern Cross Cameras, ZenHQ Films
Adam told us:
“I have recently had a very crazy experience being an assistant editor (avid) on the official film of the London 2012 Olympic Games (I also had the opportunity to go and shoot some material too) It has meant working with hundreds of hours of footage and makes editing ‘Void’ my student film seem like a walk in the park! A very eye opening experience”
FIRST will be released on 23rd November 2012

According to Caroline Rowland:
The film is intended as a continuation of the Bud Greenspan movies that have chronicled other recent Olympic Games.
“These have really been films that have captured rather than the highlights of the Games the essence of what the Olympics is all about,” Rowland says.
There had been some speculation that no official film would be made of the 2012 Games given – as Rowland puts it – “we are in an age of immediate media consumption and the live sport and highlights packages were so much more important than telling the stories behind the stories.”
