When we found out that our 3rd year Scottish Music students were collaborating on a music video project with our 3rd year Digital Film and Television students we rushed to watch them in action in our brand new recording studio facility.

The studio space was a hive of activity as the two groups of students collaborated under the watchful direction of Creative Director of Scottish Music, Phil Cunningham and DFTV Cinematography tutor, Ray Tallon. Across the hall in the control room, our vastly experienced Studio Manager, Bob Whitney supervised the smooth running of the music for playback.

We took a minute to speak to the students about the experience and they all enthused that this is the type of creative collaboration that life at the Royal Conservatoire is all about. For the DFTV students it’s an opportunity to be let loose on the professional kit and work in partnership with skilled musicians. For the Scottish Music students it was an opportunity for them to gain vital skills learn about the professional practice involved in filming a music video, in preparation for their careers ahead of them.

As Phil Cunningham noted, the combination of high spec broadcasting equipment and traditional music instruments make this project the perfect combination of old and new. Next the team are going on location to film some final exterior scenes. We can’t wait to see the finished results on screen!
