  10. 10. Technical- Diane Collins (Vision Mixer) How she does her job Diane Collins does her job by receiving sources of vision, which can be cameras, graphics, tapes, live open broadcasts and then outputting the picture that the director wants her to. Her job is basically to cut up video sources and output them, whilst following the directors plans for the footage. What she enjoys about her job Diane Collins enjoys all areas of her job, but said that she particularly enjoyed doing music shows over the past year, this was because it added more variety to what she got to do whilst working in her job. Interesting things she does Diane Collins job as a vision mixer consists of a few things that I personally find interesting that are the problems that occur during live shows and the fact that there is no great way to prepare for a mistake that may occur during any live showings. Only experience can help prevent certain mistakes from happening. Work history 
Diane Collins doesn’t have a lot of work history. Her previous jobs consist of the odd random summer jobs, temping jobs and a job as a picture researcher. Collins got into the industry from a work place from a business diploma, which she left, then revisited whilst she was working as a picture researcher. Previous projects Diane Collins mostly does her projects live. The two main program areas that she works on are news and sport, which are always live. She also has done music shows over the past year and says that she really enjoyed doing them. What I have learnt I have learnt that the vision mixers isn't as glamorous as it seems no training can properly prepare you for what might happen on air. Vision mixers are left with moments to cut and upload images, videos, sounds and other sources of visional creativity, this means mistakes are very easy to make.

He feels like being offered the a job in Batman to do Jack Nicholson was an amazing opportunity. Interesting things he does Nick Dudmans job as a make-up effects artist has a few areas that I find interesting which are the big roles they can receive and the fact that they pretty much have to be very creative to be able to create creatures such as ‘Gollum’ (a character from the lord of the rings) out of the appearance of a normal human being. Work history 
Nick Dudmans work history is apparently consists of like 99% of feature work and occasionally he might get asked to TV work.

What I have learnt I have learnt that make-up effects artists have crucial roles in all big film and TV productions due to their expertise in making creates, blood and gory look as realistic as possible. That is something that I never really considered until I read about what he does in his job.
