One year. 38 people. 10 modules. Countless deadlines. 50+ City Memes. Scores of house parties (gatecrashed and otherwise). 3 work placements. 2 job applications. One job.
And lots of great friends.
That’s it. It’s done.
We’re approaching the end of Production Fortnight and this year’s XCity is nearly ready to be sent to the printers.
From round-table meetings to commissioning ideas, securing interviewees, researching and interviewing, writing news and features, chasing copy, editing and cutting (and occasionally spiking), making sense of the shared drive, sourcing pictures, assessing weights of paper, pulling in favours, overcoming inDesign and Photoshop fails, trying not to misplace ‘the book’, eating crap, working late, selecting old school jams on YouTube and hitting every single deadline… we did it.
