In the frame for interview with rap star Tinchy Stryder

Salford City College learners put their media skills to the test when they were asked to film an exclusive interview with rap star Tinchy Stryder.

The learners recorded a Q&A session for local radio station Unity Radio where resident DJ JosheeBee interviewed Tinchy.

The filming team was a mix of four second year BTec level three creative media production students from the college’s Walkden Sixth Form Centre plus two media foundation degree students from the college’s FutureSkills programme.

Between them they took on the roles of cameramen, runners, photographers and sound engineers.

BTec student Demmi Duncan, aged 18, said: “I was really nervous at first being part of the crew to film Tinchy, but working with my fellow peers and our media teachers made me feel at ease as soon as we arrived on set.”
