Very happy to have updated the video section of my portfolio with 7 new videos from two United Nations organizations - UNICEF and the United Nations Development Program.

The UNDP productions can be found here and the UNICEF video can be found here.

Below are two of my favourite of the seven productions.

This video was one of 4 videos produced highlighting the collaborative work of the UNDP, UNCDF, and the Republic of Korea as they worked together with the Government of Rwanda to build an inclusive financial sector in the country. The reason why it's one of my favourites is because while we were filming I didn't see how we could tell the story of SACCOs and still keep the video interesting. I was afraid it was going to be all statistics and bad lighting but in the end the stories from the motorcycle taxi driver and the local landlord - who both were simply at the SACCO to do their monthly banking -  carried the video quite nicely.

The Rwanda Disaster Risk Reduction production is a favourite for a completely different reason. Firstly because it's not my production - the video was produced by the communications team at MIDIMAR - all I did was act as a mediator and translator between what UNDP staff were looking for and what the MIDIMAR team would produce.

The MIDIMAR communications team are excellent and produce a weekly television show for Rwanda Television and without their amazing stock footage, great production skills, and ability to adjust scripts and footage on a short time frame made this production possible.
