MDTA interview

As part of our MDTA PLG we were learning the techniques and styles for shooting and editing interviews. As part of our learning we all had to record and edit our own interview about the MDTA programme.

I personally found talking in front of the camera difficult, and I was quite critical of myself.  I think it is the type of task you could repeat a hundred times and still not be happy with it.

But alas, this is my first attempt at an interview style video.
