My favourite video produced whilst I was working for the Guernsey Sports Commission, is a local take on ‘This Girl Can’, a nationwide campaign driven by Sport England. In early 2015 I was one of two staff members who set about filming lots of local women and girls who were eager to feature in this local version of such a successful initiative from Sport England.

Over a month we filmed in the rain, on sand, in the park, on roller-skates, in the ring and on two wheels to get that perfect shot. The short 3 and a half minute film premiered at Beau Sejour in the company of some of the film stars and their families, local dignitaries and representatives from the media.

To this day I still maintain that it was one of my most enjoyable projects to work on. This was because it was not only a joy to edit all of the footage into a fast moving promotion, but it was great to meet such a wide variety of women and girls who were more than happy to share their experience of sporting activity with us whilst filming.
