At the weekend

It is the weekend, but it is still all go.  On Saturday, members of Operation Nightingale, Wessex Archaeology staff and soldiers were still busy on site.

Meanwhile at Salisbury Arts Centre training continued for our young film-makers.  This is the final training session before they get out on site and new skills are put to the test.  Sarah Phillips, Project Florence Manager, got the opportunity to meet some of the volunteers after their Saturday session.

It was great to see how enthusiastic the volunteers are about creating their own film.  Today, they learnt about all the things they need to consider to get a good shot.  For example, a wise piece of advice they told me was don't get the giggles - your film will be shaky.  I imagine they leant this from experience.

The group of film-makers working with the volunteers are brilliant at getting them to think about what they are doing.  Salisbury Arts Centre is the perfect venue for this element of our project and I am already excited about premiering the film there later on this year.

This week starts on-site filming and I am looking forward to seeing what our new film-makers think of the site and the archaeology.  Hopefully there will be some exciting discoveries  to record.
