Community Media Archive Launch

During my dissertation research for university I undertook a placement at the Community Media Association In the days before youtube when community radio and television in the UK was but an infant the team at the CMA were some of the most forward thinking people in the Sheffield media scene.

In an early attempt to create an online media archive they launched with a collection of audio and video from UK community producers which were made available for the public to download or stream.

Working alongside Justin Randell (with whom I had been collaborating on audiovisual performances since university), we were tasked with creating an exciting introduction video for the launch event promoting the new archive. There entailed a lot of trawling through content and Final Cut Pro editing. We also utilised some custom visual effects created by Justin with Max/MSP/Jitter.
