What’s Happening at MPU…

Seasons greetings!

This is the brand new blog from the Media Production Unit, one of OUCS’ newest additions. The little elves down here at 6 Worcester Street have been working their stockings off in the run-up to Christmas and believe me, the new year looks like it’s going to get off to a flyer!

Conrad has just finished the editing process on the last degree ceremony of the year and is now turning his attention to setting up his flash new edit suite, which he informs me will provide him with a more flexible way of working. Along with that, he is also preparing the unit for the migration to the new operating system next year.

2012 isn’t even upon us yet but Karen has already got 13 lectures and seminars booked for the new year! So book early to avoid disappointment! Karen is just applying the finishing touches to the Wolfson podcast, in which there is information about their scholarship programmes and how students can benefit from them. That will be available on iTunesU at the start of next term, as will the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine’s (NDM) podcast, which is also available on the NDM website. I don’t know a thing about clinical medicine but I helped film some of it and it’s pretty interesting stuff!

Lisa has been busy plugging the Media Production Unit by talking to the OUCS news and ‘Conference Oxford’, look out for our features in the next issues of both publications.

Just to get you in to the mood for the new year I’ll leave you with news that Karen and Charlie are going to be filming for the website of the Bodleian’s new Romance exhibition. Perhaps even more tantalising, we have had reports that we have been asked to film a debate between Oxford’s very own high priest of atheism; Richard Dawkins, and the Archbishop of Canterbury; Rowan Williams! You heard it here first folks!

Rest assured I will keep you updated on all that happens here at MPU, so why not follow us on Twitter, @MPU_Oxford. You can also visit our website at www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/media.

If you don’t hear from us before, from everyone here at MPU have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
