My name is Alice Jennings and I am currently studying Multimedia Design & Communication at the University of Northern Denmark. This basically means that I am learning to dabble in many corners of the world of media and have been experimenting with a variety of mediums. Although English of origin I have lived in Denmark for the past 5 years and absolutely love the lifestyle out there. As part of my course requires me to be in an internship, this is what I am doing now. I have been doing a variety of things in the office for SEO Desk including some viral videos and odd jobs here and there and helping them get ready for the event they were about to attend up in London. I was lucky enough to go up with SEO Desk to the TFM&A event this year (Technology for Marketing and Advertising). Although it was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it, my body most certainly felt the exhaustion after the two full on days.
What did I get up to at the event? I basically went around the show snapping what I could and I also tried to shoot some video. Successfully, I managed to break my bosses tripod before the show started and had to bandage it up using an appropriate piece of plastic I found hanging out from our stand. It was all a great experience, I learnt that I have yet a lot to learn about white balance, especially when there is a lot of orange carpet involved. Unless shooting in RAW there is no escaping that putrid orange glow.
I also attended a few seminars, one of which I was lucky enough to sit on the front row whilst the director of Google talked about ‘The Future of Digital’. Highly inspiring and interesting. I attend a few other seminars and learnt a lot about the role that social media plays in Marketing & Advertising. Now back in the office I will start putting together the material I managed to collect from the event. There are some photos uploaded to Facebook already, please feel free to check them out! HERE
Have a great week
