It is that time of year again where the clocks go back, the evenings draw in, but what kick starts November and reminds us what is so great about living here in Guernsey is the Guernsey Community Awards taking place. It recognises and celebrates all that is great about the charitable sector here in the Bailiwick and we were privileged to be asked back for the fourth year in a row to film the event as well as provide video footage to be played to their 250 strong audience. We have seen a few changes over the years, but the values that underpin the awards has remained constant over time, with the event now in it’s sixth year.
This year we were tasked with capturing the thoughts from three individuals who devote their time and energy into volunteering through the Foundation’s Volunteer Matching Programme. A few filming sessions last weekend at St John Ambulance, Lihou headline and the obligatory interview office the edit began, and after a few hours we managed to cut what could easily have been over 10 minutes to just under six. The video was premiered at the event itself at St. James Concert Hall on Thursday 3rd November where afternoon tea was served. It will be available to view within our showreel soon.
We also attended the event itself to capture all of the action taking place at the awards and are currently in the middle of finalising the finished video. We worked alongside Chris George who photographed the event for the sixth year in a row and he was quick to produce a collage of pictures of the night which is available to view below.
