This week we had the pleasure of visiting the ITV Daytime Studios currently located in the old BBC Television Centre in London. The day was packed with valuable experience including a tour of the TV studios, production office, design department and live TV gallery where we watched the live broadcast of This Morning. Seeing Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby do their best to maintain composure in the face of Karl Pilkington was worth the trip alone. All this before lunch!
A positive and creative environment – The atmosphere of a genuine design studio.
Afterwards we were welcomed to shadow the other designers where we learnt about their workflows, upcoming projects, daily demands (extremely short deadlines) and picked up some After Effects and Cinema 4D tips along the way. Everyone was friendly and generous with their time and had a genuine interest in what we were learning at the NFTS, even suggesting they pay us a visit for a mini project.
