So… here we are working on another opening piece to camera for our Trinity House training film ‘Not Just the Day Job’. THV ‘Galatea’ is alongside in Swansea, prior to her departure on a sortie out to the Scilly Isles. After this opener, what our cadet presenter Lotty Astbury had to do is a challenge: a “walkie-talkie”, where the talent (as US film crews call their presenters) has to deliver a script, from memory, while walking along and arriving at exactly the right spot at exactly the right moment. Sounds simple? Nope. (The number of retakes I’ve had to do over the years, even with the best reporters…) On camera, I have to follow her and zoom out to show the ship (always a pleasure, that.) Lotty cracks it in one – and then all the safety retakes too. Get in!
