An absolutely amazing experience
Jaynion Hampton, Merthyr Tydfil College student
Now in its eighth year, students from Merthyr Tydfil College join the Festival crew for a week in August. Students are offered a unique opportunity for personal growth and development, as well as enhancing their technical skills as they learn and gain hands-on experience from the Festival’s Audio Visual team.
Green Man’s friendly and highly professional environment creates an ideal context to both challenge and support the students. Under direction from Green Man’s Audio Visual Department, students record and edit live footage of headliner acts on the Festival’s main stages, which is broadcast across the stage screens. Feeding into their studies for their Film Foundation Degrees, the students learn how to vision mix backstage and operate video cameras live in front of 20,000 people. While on site the participants produce a short film of their experiences, with the final edit scheduled in the Festival programme and shown in the Cinedrome tent.
