#1000Smiles

Back in Sunny August the guys at 1000 Heads in London did something a little special adding a few smiles to a London a year on from the hedonistic feeling London had from the Olympic games. They had a silent disco in Golden Square, gave away free coffee at Flat White, had the Worlds Smallest Fete in Berwick Street and surprised others in London in a few other ways. You can read more about it here.

To document the day, working for Angelic Films I along with Amy Coop  shot the above film for 1000 Heads with Amy doing a cracking job of the edit.

Social Media Week 2012

Just over a month ago it was Social Media Week. SMW spans the globe with events in all over the word including London and L.A. As part of this Angelic Films was asked by 1000 Heads to record several events in  London and and L.A for key supporter, Nokia. I shot in London while Shane Daley shot in L.A. Both of us shooting using Canon 5D kits with dual system sound. As ever these events are full of people wanting to share and exchange knowledge  and well worth going to if you get the opportunity next year.

Going Social

Chances are that if you are reading this you kind of have some grasp on what social media is and I’ll not bore you explaining to the converted. The exciting part of social media to me is not the technology but the content and how it spills in and out from the digital world.

The above video “Social Media Week Highlights: Random Acts of Kindness with #NOKIAConnects” shows how Nokia randomly gave away phones all over the world to people who responded to tweets on twitter. Nokia didn’t shout we’re giving phones away they just asked to meet a few people to talk about social media week and then gave them a phone. Which is very cool as there was no real expectation from the those who came to meet up. I think the reactions say it all and would imagine they probably told, blogged and tweeted all about it, expanding the impact of a simple act of kindness.

I shot some of the above London footage using my Canon 5D mk2 and a Canon 24-70mm L for AngelicDigital who compiled and organised the whole world wide media edit for their client 1000Heads, a top Word and Mouth Agency on behalf of Nokia.

Aussie Bloggers’ Christmas Markets

I edited this just before Christmas using Final Cut Pro at Angelic Films office in Pinewood Studios, whilst surrounded by snow.  Although not shot by me it was shot entirely using my Canon 5D mk2 and a Rode Videomic, over two days in December.
