A couple of weeks ago I was asked by my good friend Shaun to help film a music video for MacMillan Cancer Research.
Shauns Message “Myself and Lauren have our reasons for wanting to raise money for cancer support, and I’m sure many of you have yours too. So help us raise as much money as possible for MacMillan, who do some really great things for people struck with the news that they, or someone close to them, has cancer.”
This was an enjoyable, intensely planned shoot; already receiving some fantastic exposure through the power of social networking and word of mouth. Fundraising is amazing because it feels good to make a difference as a united community. To donate, download the song via the iTunes page or the Just Giving page (Add Gift Aid if it applies!) – All proceeds go to MacMillan Cancer Support.
Below is the behind the scenes video, giving you a sense of how much effort was put into this project!
Music Produced & Mixed by Shaun Reynolds
Camera: Ian Kitt
Video Editor: Shaun Reynolds
After months of collating footage, editing, reediting well over 10 drafts, it’s finally here! It still needs a bit of tweaking (end title sequence) but other than that, its 99.97% done.
I’ve also uploaded it to YouTube, so the YouTubers can ‘like’ & ‘comment’ etc

As mentioned in my previous blog Showreel Update, 2013 is already shaping up to be a good year! This week I shot a charity music video for Macmillan Cancer Research with Shaun Reynolds & Lauren Verrier – new blog on that video – Stand Up for the Love – will be released after the video is live (late Feb 2013) and I have a list of other shoots that will be working on. I’m in the latter stages of creating a Timelapse showreel, since I now have substantial footage; I’m aiming to release this in March.
All collaborations are welcomed with warm open arms!
