I am introducing
… a Charity Film Shoot project in which I am hoping that as many people as possible will be involved. It is easy to get involved … just fill out any of the sign up forms on this site to get added to my mailing list, I will be choosing participants at random from that list to receive the camera in turn …
So what is this all about?
I recently came across a rather nice Zeiss Ikon Contina camera in a Charity shop. It is a 35mm camera which is not a format that I have shot for many years and I was wondering what I might do with it and then came this idea …
I am going to shoot one roll of film with the camera to document my day to day life, activities, area and region that I live in then I am going to choose someone from my mailing list to receive the camera next … hence the Global Charity Film Shoot
That person undertakes to also shoot one roll of film to document their day to day life and the environment that they live in before passing the camera to the next person from my mailing lists and so on.
Once each of us has shot our roll of film
… then we send web ready and print ready scans (if you have trouble with this let me know, this shouldn’t prevent you from being involved) of the images to me so that I can collate the project in to a website and also a book of the project. Proceeds from the sale of the book (after costs) will be donated to charities whose work deals directly with Street Connected Children – something which has a deep resonance for me personally.
Eventually, I hope that the camera will return to me and then phase 2 of this project will happen … more news on that later!
I am very excited; by this project, by the opportunity to work with you all, by the prospect of all those images
