As I’m going to be attending the 2nd Birmingham Social Media Café tomorrow morning and no doubt be surrounded by people with at least six up to date and well read blogs, I figured I should bash out a few words highlighting a few of the things I’ve been up to over the past few months!
I’m in the middle of editing a fundraising film for BCOP, a Birmingham based charity which has been providing exciting and innovative care for the elderly since 1946 (a latest addition is a pet farm in a care home!). The film will be screened at the Symphony Hall (blimey!) for the Salvation Army’s Christmas concert.
Almost as scary is my new teaching post at Matthew Boulton College. My initial worries have been allayed by some absolutely fantastic short films about Birmingham being produced by the students. The finished films will become part of the ‘Birmingham – Symphony of a City’ project.
Upcoming work includes some filming for some local community organisations as part of a marketing strategy being developed by Matrix Graphics and BRAP, a Patient Experience film for Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals Trust and I’m just off to meet a group of young people in Walsall to develop a proposal for a funding application to make a film with The Wildlife Trust.
