Since the autumn semester of 2016 a group of Level 6 students have been filming a mixture of special events and daily activities around the Cathedral, with the aim of editing the many of hours of footage into a ten minute film that depicts all aspects of life in and around the building. The final film – currently being fine-tuned by a group of students from the class of 2016 – will be shown continuously throughout the day in the Cathedral Treasury so visitors can see aspects of Cathedral life that they might not have been able to see during their visit.
The students have been filming at all times of day and in all weathers to record as many scenes from ecclesiastical and community life at the Cathedral as possible. They even had a rare rooftop tour to allow them to film some stunning high-level footage. Lisa Green, who has spent the last year working on the project with fellow students Toby Phillips and Jennifer Wheatley, said: “I decided to take part in the Cathedral Project to gain real world experience working to a clients’ brief. By doing this I’ve learnt to adapt confidently and professionally to evolving briefs in a time effective manner. Also I was able to successfully underpin the theoretical and practical knowledge gained during my time working towards a BA (Hons) in Media Studies.”
