Michael Jackson Tribute Show at The Bromfords School – Creative Radio Production
I (Max) was very lucky to be invited by the digitalcreativity.org team to work with them as part of my ‘Work Experience’ within my Year 10 school curriculm – and what a week to be working with them on!
From the 5th through to the 12th July, Hal and Matt have both been working incredibly hard with students of various ages at the Bromfords School – Wickford, Essex on Creative Radio Production. This was in preparation of leading a cross-media production based entirely on the rather topical entertainment superstar ‘Michael Jackson’ as a tribute to his life and work. The workshops the students took part in during the week, led up to a final showcase which was performed to various Year 6 induction groups from accompanying local primary schools.
The final production consisted of a wide variety of highly-talented performances incorporating modern and contemporary dance and vocal engagement which was led in a ‘radio-style’ format by student DJs with a helping hand from Matt and Hal.
The project was two weeks long, and involved Bromfords School, Creative Partnerships and Wickford CLC (Community Learning Centre). Over the two weeks Matt and Hal worked with the learners to master radio production and they are superb when working with young people.
