14th/15th Oct 2010, Canon 5d Mk11 Civil Service Benevolent Fund Promo

On from Swindon, to London, filming a Canon 5d Mk11 5d promo for the Civil Service Benevolent Fund. Various set ups over 2 days.
The idea is to show how as a Civil Servant, you can help the charity, and also how the charity has helped others, a promo set to music with captions.
The first was a guy on a exercise bike, in the atrium of the home office, cycling 9am to 5pm for charity.
I used one light my HMI dedo, which worked perfectly.

A Civil Servant who dressed as a superhero for charity, which we shot around the Thames, opposite the Houses of Parliament.



I used my little table top dolly in this sequence, finally used in anger!

We ended up in a graveyard in Cardiff, the woman we were filming had lost her husband recently and the charity had helped with the bereavement. It was a sequence of shots, her walking up to the grave and placing some flowers.

Rest in peace Mr Evans
