Response from the Exam Board

This is the reply which we got from  the exam board from our query whether you could use some found material in our documentary. We are allowed to use around 30 seconds of footage, this will be a great help in creating our project!

Watching footage

This morning we are beginging to watch footage back from two of our interviews (Joe Allon and Neil Cameron) this is so that we can decide which pieces to cut from the interview and which will be selected for final stage editing. In addition we will then upload our footage onto Final Cut to begin the editing process.

Interviewed Neil

Earlier today we conducted our interview with Neil Cameron (Writer for the local paper). During an interview which lasted around 30 minutes we asked Neil about what we should expect from the current crop of players, the owner and the lack of transfer activity in the summer. We got some excellent footage from this interview to use and im sure it will spice up our documentary.

Contacting the Exam board

As a group we have decided to email the exam board to see whether it would be possible to include some non-original footage in our documentary as we believe it would be a great shame not to include some actual footage of the famous atmosphere at St James Park. We were unable to film this ourselves as you are not allowed to take industrial size equipment into the ground on match days and would cost too much to book a private screening.

Exterior shots, second take

This morning we went over Newcastle City centre to film more exterior shots of Newcastles Stadium, St James Park. Thankfully we are happy with our shots this time around. As before we took a vary of different types of shots which will help keep the documentary interesting. Mainly we focused on the structure and size of the stadium but also took shots of the iconic bar outside The Strawberry and also the club owned bar which has been renamed 9 from Shearers. In addition we took still shots of statues (Sir Bobby Robson and Jackie Milburn)
