Oh no

Stuart has said no to being on camera so I had to find someone quick luckily I got Conor Galvin who is a new volunteer but who has helped the team so much by his fundraising. no luck with Bridie yet either she did not get back to us about being in the documentary.


We decided that Bridie was going to be our main talent because she had been there for so many years and after being volunteering for so long has become part of the club and how even though she isn't able to do as much as she could still goes to support her team. we hope to find out why she hasn't stoopped helping out there, maybe she is lonely,  The other two were to show one being Frank who is not as old as Bridie but has been at shelbourn for a long time and Stuart who is the youngest volunteer we want to know why he started doing volunteering for the team.

Back to the drawing board

We decided to meet in the library after class to discuss our documentary because we knew was not going well and we wanted to make something interesting. So we stayed with the sports club idea but instead of doing it on the teams we decided to do it on the people behind the sport, the volunteers we wanted to show the hard workers behind the clubs who give up their free time to help out these teams without being paid.

We decided on three people that we wanted and they were Bridie Kerr a woman who is in her eighties and has been volunteering at Droughada United for years, a man called Frank who helps out in Shelbourne football club snd Stuart Maclindon who is a volunteer coach of the Irish Wheelchair Rugby team.

Our jobs were: Des was going to call Bridie, Jason was going to call Frank and I was going to talk to Stuart.

Problems Problems Problems!!

We had to do our first Pitch and everyone hated it and I understood why the idea was boring we didn't what we were talking about and couldn't contribute because the guys were talking about ideas that they came up with on the spot so of course we were ripped to shreds.

Trying to put the documentary together

We were still going with the football idea but I was still unsure because the guys made it sound like we were promoting the clubs and nothing else. So I said to the guys that maybe we should look at it in a different way because I had no interest in football and I would know that the viewers who had no interest in the sport would watch it if it was purely promotional. Luckily the lads understood where I was coming from and we decided to think of a way that non football fans would enjoy the documentary.

Major Documentary idea stage

For our first idea for our major documentary was going to be the Irish Football League. I did not like the idea because we had not discussed it properly and we dud not have a clue where we were going with this idea and also I did not have an interest in this so I was not into the idea.
