Bahamas Olympic Team 2012

Olympic 4x400m Gold Medalist winners Chris Brown + Demetirus Pinder from Christopher Hughes on Vimeo.

Just before The Olympics I started work on a project for Bahamas Olympic Team sponsor BTC. Essentially I was tasked with producing media assets, both photos and videos for BTC to use to get their message out about the team and BTC’s involvement in their Olympic dream. Initially I covered the project on my own but as project evolved we brought on a photographer Neil Rouse allowing me to concentrate on the video side. We shot for five days over three weeks and produced sixteen videos along will delivering individual 290 images and shot at the Bahamas High Commission, Claridges Hotel and the International Maritime Authority head quarters The highlights being meet and film some of the athletes including former Olympic Gold Medal winner Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie and, Chris Brown and Demetrius Pinder who went onto win gold ¬†as part of the in the mens 4 x 400m team London Olympics.

All the videos were shot using a Canon 5D mk2 and edited using Final Cut 7.
