This was the first video I editied for People’s Voice Media. I had recently been made redundant and had invested some of my redundancy in an iMac and some Final Cut editing software with a view to fulfil a long held ambition to be a film editor. I was looking for projects that would have an audience and a wider purpose, not just getting some practice in on holiday videos. I answered a call on facebook put out by Jess Mayo to volunteer as a film editor editing Community Reporter’s footage and was provided with footage of the Lower Kersal Allotment Project which was filmed by some of the young people helping out there with assistance from Teresa Wilson, the Community Manager at People’s Voice Media. The plan was fairly loose so I had free reign over how I put it together. They seemed to like what I made which encouraged me very much and whet my appetite for further Community Reporting work.
