Chris was a volunteer at Inverclyde TV, beginning when he was a student at West College Scotland where the channel is based and after graduating from college has still gone back to help out when he can. The advantages of volunteering here was the ability to work in a number of different roles including camera, sound recording and directing.
The Living Abbey is a project directed by Robyn Cleugh (Hackney) as part of her HND TV Production course. I was the camera operator on this project that was shot over three days in December 2014 and January 2015. We were limited to the shots we could do as we didn't have access to mains power to run high wattage lights so could only light small sections with battery operated LED lights. The scene with the Barochan Cross was lit from the side as this gave a higher contrast on the worn carvings allowing us to see more with the camera than could be seen with the naked eye.
