A series of professional, live music videos called INSESSION featuring local bands and artists has been released today (Monday 24 March) by the University of Hertfordshire’s record label INFUSE – all of which have been produced by students.

The ongoing project not only aims to showcase the best in local music talent, but provides current film and television students at the University with invaluable experience shooting and producing industry standard work.

Adrian Walker, manager and executive producer of INFUSE at the University of Hertfordshire, said: "We launched INFUSE to give students the opportunity to professionally record their own music and work on projects like INSESSION that give them real work experience and a chance to build up professional portfolios."

The videos, which were solely created and produced by staff, students and alumni, were filmed at Grand Chapel Studios in partnership with sE Electronics. They feature local bands and musicians: Aylwin String Quartet, Jacket, James Delarre and Saul Rose, Mandeville and Marine. University student and alumni bands: Cardinal Jack, Nadine, Stolen Horse, TRED and sE Electronics product showcase ft Dream Warriors also feature.

Ten live music videos are now available on the INFUSE Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/INFUSEpresents/videos with one more being released every two weeks for the next few months. They will be officially launched at a showcase event this evening.

Adrian added: "The videos were all shot 'as live', meaning the end product is not a mixture of various takes, culminating in an edgy, more unique performance.

"The launch is only the beginning of this ongoing project with a second series of videos and a summer special in the pipeline."
