BFBS Bootcamp Student Profile: Chris Pearson

When you’re faced with a story that on the surface doesn’t seem very visual it requires some planning and effort to turn it into a video that people will want to watch. At one of our recent boot-camps in the UK, Chris Pearson needed to turn what would have been just an interview into a really visual story. To do this he spent time with his subject, filming him as he want about his day to day job rather than simply sitting him in a chair and doing a “talking head” interview with him.

This is a great example of how our method of shooting and storytelling can create a compelling story. Chris has a background in radio, but could apply his knowledge of storytelling, in addition to our method, and transition quite nicely to video. Great work Chris!
