Recording interviewee though a lapel microphone

Bachelor of Creative Media Production

Our aim for Grassroots was to create an informative short-film series for the NZ Drug Foundations use in their campaign for the 2020 cannabis referendum. A political issue, as well as a health and criminal justice issue, the content was separated accordingly into different episodes. As a team, we found it difficult working on a project that dealt with political content, navigating different interests, and ensuring the final project adhered to the guidelines set forth by both our client and the University.

I'm Ben, I was Sound Technician for the Grassroots project. My role involved recording the ambient sound and interviews. I was excited to be part of a collaborative project to create content to spark conversations and change. Grassroots reaffirmed my desire to tell stories that impact our communities.
