Information on Looping the Loop



Trafford Council, Lets Go Global, Walk the Plank, The Quays and other partners have developed an exciting new project called Looping the Loop, as part of the Cultural Olympiad – the UK’s cultural programme for London 2012.

Looping the Loop is the Northwest’s opening event for London 2012, celebrating the start of Games time in the UK on May 19th in the vicinity of Media City, and The Quays. May 19th also marks the day when the Olympic torch relay begins its 60 day journey around the UK. Looping the Loop will work with a wide range of local people, and will commission six new projects with communities who live in and around the Old Trafford stadium.

The Manchester College media have been commissioned to cover the projects during the lead up to the event and on the extravaganza of May 19th. The team will need to research the event and the projects and film and interview contributors. This footage will be edited and broadcast within a live show based on the Looping the Loop. In the studio the team will also need to present the programme, interview guests, film the show and broadcast it live.

This is an opportunity to demonstrate your professionalism working with clients and your technical ability to deliver a live show.
