With Stuart Hamilton, at Castlesound Recording Studios.
P5/6 spent the morning at Castlesound Recording Studios in Pencaitland, working with owner Stuart Hamilton, where they recorded this year’s entry for Schoolovision- The Proclaimers’ song I’m Gonna Be (500 miles). Also there was Gavin Tully-Jackson, who was filming the experience.
Just to clarify what happens now: Gavin Tully-Jackson will return to the school one morning during the first week back after Easter, when we will shoot the “location” video, in the village. He’ll then edit this, along with today’s footage, to create the end video that will be entered into this year’s Schoolovision contest, and uploaded to the Schoolovision 2012 blog. This must be done no later than Friday 18th May. So- parents (and all of us!) will be able to see the end result in early May.
Here are some thoughts from the morning:
Megan -”We had great fun and it was a great experience for all of us!”
Joe – “It was really fantastic to see all the equipment there!”
Caitlin – “It was a really cool experience!”
Lauren A – “It was fun but it was quite hard work.”
Angus – “It was really fun seeing how a professional recording studio operates, but it was hard work!”
Finlay G – “We’ve all got our hopes up- we hope to do really well (possibly even win!) but this was a once in a lifetime experience that not a lot of people are able to have.”
Daisy – “It was a great day and a great song to sing!”
The class rehearse!
