As part of Portsmouth City Council & The Big Screen’s artistic activities in the run up to the Olympics you can participate by being a Memory Maker. If you are in to photography or film making, then you can sign up to become a Big Screen Memory Maker this summer. Memory Makers will be responsible for taking pictures and short films of events at the Portsmouth Live Site (the Guildhall Square) and across the city, including the Olympic Torch Relay and the Boat Project. The material will then be showcased on the Big Screen as an archive documenting how Portsmouth celebrated the London 2012 Olympic Games.
If you would like to become involved in this there will be a free training session held by the Big Screen Producer on 21st June, from 12pm until 2pm. You’ll have the chance to learn more about the Big Screen Project and gain some useful photography and filmmaking tips. Places are limited so please book in advance.
“We hope to see lots of people making the most of the Portsmouth Live Site and Olympic Torch Relay this summer. The Memory Makers project is also a great opportunity for people to gain an insight into how coverage is produced, and contribute their personal footage to the London 2012 Olympic Games.”
Cllr Gerald Vernon-Jackson, leader of Portsmouth City Council
