“We’ve had thousands of watches, plenty of shares and an increase in funding coming in through our website”
This is the kind of feedback we like! It’s not just about creating charity videos that the client likes, but about films that impact the audience and make a positive difference for the charity in the way that we want.
It’s not uncommon to hear stories of interns being treated as general run-arounds, doing the photocopying, making the tea and effectively working every hour for little or no money. There’s been many recent articles, exposing companies that exploit interns on a regular basis and it’s an on-going problem that young people coming into industry face – how to get a job that requires experience, where getting experience on an internship can prove difficult.
Three ladies shopping in a local supermarket - not necessarily one of the images that would come to mind with production of a charity video but for us, it was all part of the process of showing the wide variety of impact that The Mothers's Union is having both here in the UK and around the world.
I've just landed back from another trip out to Uganda - this time with the Mother's Union - as well as filming in 4 locations in the UK. It was a long trip - nearly 14 hrs of total flight time to get there and then a 7 hr drive down to the south, near the Rwandan border; but made up for with the warmth of the welcome and the hospitality shown.
I’ve just come back from Truro, for what has become a bit of an annual visit! We were once again tasked with producing a film, filmed over 2 days and ready to view on the morning of the 3rd day, looking at the World AIMS programme at Truro school. This is a regular end of term event, where, instead of regular lessons, the school gives the time over to looking at particular social justice, world or poverty issues. Previous years have looked at Disaster management, Human Rights issues and Reuse and recycling.
