Acoustic music gig provides journalism opportunity for students

A GLASGOW-based free magazine for school pupils and university and college students has had some of its pages set aside for a team of student journalists.

Students from Motherwell College, Glasgow Caledonian University and Cardonald College, in Glasgow, variously filmed, interviewed and photographed an acoustic performance for the band, Cover Drive.

The performance took place in the office of Source magazine, published by DC Publishing.

The interview and pics will appear in the magazine’s summer issue.

The session was filmed by Cardonald College students William Topping, Alistair Shirlaw, Holly Walker, Callum Smillie and Seann Gray, all of whom are studying towards an NQ in television operations, photography and film. Glasgow Caledonian journalism student, Laura Donaldson, undertook the interview, while Motherwell College student, Monica Day, did the photography.
