Transform Yourselves Promo Videos

These two videos are the most recent video pieces I’ve done for work. They are promo pieces for Tearfund’s “Transform Yourselves” trips. These trips allow you to tailor an overseas group trip to your needs. One of the unique points is that itr enables people to take under 18′s which a lot of organisations prefer to steer clear of due to the extra complications.

I especially like that these trips are not just about a bunch  Europeans going put to “help” poor people in a “hit and run” way. Every trip is with a well established partner so we know that the projects are sustainable and that the idea od the project will be to empower whatever village is being visited to help themselves.

The more i hear about these trips the more i want to go on one.

A Foggy Twickenham Morning

It was an incredibly beautiful morning this morning. As I was driving down past Twickenham i glanced over at the river and i saw how beautiful it was. The sun was just barley breaking through the clouds and there was a think mist over the river.

I parked up and jumped out with my GF1 and my Gorillapod and shot this.

Loving my camera.

First Video in New Job Done!

I’m really happy with this piece. It’s the first vid I’ve done in a while that is 100% my work. Most things i’ve done in the past have been done using Camera men and sound guys but this is all me.

Shot on a small Sony HDV A1e and cut in Final Cut Express.

The film is about the experiences of people who have gone on Tearfund’s “Transform” Mission trips  and will be used as a promo piece to encourage people to go on them next year.

Hope you enjoy!
