I’d just graduated and was asked by an ex tutor if i’d like to go to Chicago. The challenge was to capture as much audio and video content as possible in 5 days! I flew from Birmingham Airport on route to the Windy City. Why the trip? Well, Birmingham is a sister city of Chicago. I was there to interview people involved in the sister city project and capture as much content as possible.

The result was that I brought lots of content back for students to use in their projects.

200 GB of content – It ranged from interviews with ex rock stars, tours of Chicago through to footage of pasta being cooked.

A Chicago pizza has about 3cm of cheese.
