Bucks Animators Design Virtual Set for Watford Hornets

Hornets Show - Watford's online magazine
Bucks Animation and VFX students are in the process of designing a new virtual set for the Watford Hornets. Watford FC's involvement at Bucks New University includes working on the Club's online magazine programme, The HornetShow, with students studying BA (Hons) Film & Television Production; Audio & Music Production; and Animation & Visual Effects.

The shows are filmed on a green screen background in a video studio in the High Wycombe-based University's Gateway building, and also using an outside broadcasting unit belonging to the University.

As part of the show, past and present Watford FC stars are filmed in the studio at Bucks New University, and the programme is then streamed via Watford FC's website.

The virtual set used as the backdrop for the show has been designed by the Animation & Visual Effects students.  Audio & Music Production students manage the audio for the interviews, and do the sound design.
