Bryony Hooper, Student Volunteer | Sheffield Doc/Fest

LSFM student-mentee and 2015 Graduand Bryony Hooper said: BryonyHooper_groupshot-Sheffield DocFest2015I had the honour of attending Doc/Fest (5th-10th June 2015) for free by volunteering for it. This has to be one of the best media experiences I’ve had. I got to network, see films and enjoy the overall festival.  My job for the week was Cinema Steward, which is basically letting people into the screens, scanning the badges and taking tickets. However I believe there was a number of volunteers that didn’t show up and because I was based in one of the main rooms I was used as a runner as well. I didn’t mind doing this as I got to see more of the festival, however carrying quite heavy chairs across Sheffield isn’t the best way to spend an afternoon. Continue reading

Voluntary Work Opportunity – Short Doco for soundLINCS

soundLINCS_B15Can you help to create a short documentary for soundLINCS to capture its B15 event, which’ll celebrate 15 years of community music and try to break a World Record on 3rd May 2014? soundLINCS is a not-for-profit community music group and organisers said: “The event will see 1500 musicians come together to play a brand new piece of music and attempt to break a world record and we hope that this opportunity could give the volunteers some great experience and footage for their showreel, as well as a chance to be a part of this unique day. We would like a team (or individual) who could film the rehearsals during the day and interview the musicians, composers and volunteers. There may also be the chance to film at some of the smaller group rehearsals, but dates of these are still to be confirmed. Own equipment would be an advantage as we’re very limited in what we could provide.” If you’re interested in this opportunity please email your contact details and CV to
