TV & Digital Media students film London City Philharmonic Orchestra

Second year students on the BA Film, TV & Digital Media programme were lucky enough to have filmed the London City Philharmonic Orchestra recently.

Shot live at St Stephen’s church in Kensington, the project is part of a second year module called Studio and Outside Broadcast Production, headed by Mike Peel and Robert Freeman.

Peel, a lecturer in Studio & Media Production said: "Studio and Outside Broadcast Production builds on the teaching and learning of the first year module Studio Production, which is entirely based in the TV studio.

"The outside broadcast element adds another level of technical complexity to the students productions as they essentially have to build and rig a mobile studio, however it means they get to visit and shoot in a variety of impressive locations and settings.

"In this case they were very lucky to be able to film the London City Philharmonic Orchestra at the St Stephen’s Church in Kensington."

Founded by Olsi Qinami who is the Conductor & Music director of the Orchestra and founding member Chiawen Kiew, the London City Philharmonic is a newly founded orchestra that is dedicated to the exposure of works by lesser known composers (living or deceased) and providing budding composers an opportunity to have their works performed.
