Let Her Play - Using social media to encourage women to play rugby

Tandem Studios has been working this year with the CRFU (Canterbury Rugby Football Union) to promote and encourage participation in the sport for young men and women.

A series of seven videos have been produced for Canterbury Rugby as part of their work to encourage young women into the the sport.

Called Let Her Play the series was about girls of all ages talking about what they loved about the game of Rugby.

The Social Footy Show

Tandem this year and again to promote the game of rugby for young men have been covering the 'Match of the round' from the UC Championship.

We have a team of students who operate three cameras and vision mixer and then edit the recording into a weekly highlights package of the game and create an online rugby show call 'The Social Footy Show'. Each week this highlights package features the best plays from the game, interviews with the coach of the home team and the captains from both teams.

The Social Footy Show is then shared through Facbook, YouTube and the Canterbury Rugby website. All episodes of the Social Footy Show can be viewed through the UC Championship YouTube channel

Our whole approach has been to create a show that is by the students, of the students for the students and presenting the game coverage in such a way that can be easily viewed and shared through social media.

 

Live Streaming First XV Rugby from The UC Championship

The final game of the UC Championship was held on the 26th August 2017 at Christchurch Boys High School. Tandem Studios continued to provide the final episode of the Social Footy Show but also live-streamed the whole game through the UC Championship & UC Cup Facebook page. The stream, at its peak, was viewed by over 600 people, tuning in from all over the Canterbury District. 

Our 8-person team covered the main roles of a full live-stream setup, including Directing, Vision Mixing, Cameras and Floor Manager. We also worked alongside two professional sports commentators, Rocky Roberts & Brendan Laney.
