Each week on my MA course we were given half a day to film and edit a short news package ready for the university’s 4pm news bulletin. We worked in pairs – one producer/director, one reporter. For this I acted as producer, researching and setting up interviews, filming and editing the piece.
We had heard that a new shop in Shoreditch was offering tailor-made voodoo dolls specially for Valentine’s Day. When we researched this further, it became clear that the theme of “hate” rather than “love” was incredibly popular so we decided to cover the arrival of such a bizarre idea.
