First approached in March 2019, Adam Jensen proposed an idea which I had to be part of. The children of Chaddlewood Primary had written a song to raise awareness for the NSPCC in the hopes it would become a Christmas number one. After the first day of recording at the studio, I knew this was going to be something incredibly special. The kids had such brilliant ideas of what they wanted the video to become and we ended up telling the story of this entire project. The song got picked up pretty quickly on both TV and Radio stations across the region and continues to pick up traction.
Celebrating their 10th anniversary, I was invited to film the Cabaret Stage at Bristol Pride. Not only was it their 10th year, but it was also the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and felt like this video should be more personal, grabbing interviews from the people to tell the story of Pride. I remember there was one moment as I was on stage with everyone singing the hit song 'This Is Me' and I was overwhelmed. I had to stop filming, lower my camera and stand in awe, it will be one of those moments that will last with me forever.
Jake Giddy has been a significant part of the success 'Together' has enjoyed as a music track. His ability to plan, creatively engage with our ambitions, and bring everything to fruition are real assets and strengths. With us having no experience in video production, he was always willing to assist and tackle our questions, no matter how small, and the resulting outcome has been nothing short of breathtaking. Jake worked incredibly well with a large variety of ages within our school and he was able to see the 'bigger picture', even when our hopes were ambitious. Our school would thoroughly recommend him to other people and thank him for the opportunities that he has opened up to our young people.
