Cambridge video company WaveFX were busy this week filming at Downing College for a RTE documentary on the Macular Pigment Research Group based at the Waterford Institute of Ireland.
The documentary to air later this year feature scenes filmed in and around the College including the spectacular Quadrangle, Howard theatre and Maitland Robinson Library.
Three notable contributors were interviewed by the WaveFX film crew and Adrian Taplin producer commented “It is always our primary goal to put the interviewee at ease ensuring a natural, positive performance that looks great on camera. Our crews are deliberately small, professional and above all a friendly bunch”
Supporting footage was also filmed in and around Cambridge to give the edited documentary context and add interest, this proved to be an uneasy task when the river Cam was being dredged, the rain had set in and the college roof was being repaired by a huge crane.
Luckily the crane moved on in the afternoon, the rain eased off and the film crew captured all the footage requested by RTE.
