My biggest single video project to date, for the States of Guernsey Education Department, was filmed over one and a half school days at a local primary school here in Guernsey. I was tasked with showcasing the Growth Mindset initiative which they embraced as a whole school over the past 12 months or so.

During the day filming at the school I was lucky enough to hear from the headteacher of the school, the teachers of the seven year groups, a special educational needs co-ordinator as well as the many children who are benefitting from this positive initiative.

Obtaining over five hours of raw footage made for a fun few days in the editing suite, but after a few key themes repeated themselves, devising a story over the 35 minute video wasn’t too tricky, and if you can, spare the time to hear how this school is setting a trend, that I feel will glean nationwide recognition.
