Lights, camera, action - Buckie High School pupils present - Chivas: The Plant, The Process, The People

On 2nd March 2022, the pupils of the N5 Media class at Buckie High School travelled to Keith to participate in a film shoot for Chivas Brothers. Ross Keddie, Operations Manager for Chivas, had approached DYW Moray to see if the media students would be interested in planning, creating and shooting a film for their recruitment department on the different career pathways within Chivas. Mr Smith, English/Media teacher at Buckie High School was delighted to facilitate this opportunity as these types of projects have been suspended due to Covid-19.

Mr Smith expressed: “It was refreshing to see students participate once again in genuine active learning and be given the opportunity to transfer the media skills learned in the classroom into an actual artefact.

"The students worked largely on their own and they coped incredibly well with this responsibility and thrived in the actual process of a hands-on shoot."

Filming was completed the following week with the support of freelance videographer Brodie Young, where he directed the students with the final shoot along with delivering a masterclass on the editing process.

Ross Keddie and his team welcomed the young people of Buckie High School and supported the project from beginning to end.

There will be an unofficial launch of the project, just before the Easter holidays, to celebrate the collaborative efforts of all parties involved.
