Case study Charity Video projects

Raising funds and waving napkins

It was such a privilege to provide an event highlights video for this fantastic charity gala ball, supporting the amazing work Broughton House does with veterans. Broughton House is a care home in Salford that looks after military veterans; its mission statement is to care for those who served us.

I’ve worked with them before, when I produced a social media video for the BBC Philharmonic. Players from the BBC Phil paid the residents a visit and performed a concert for them. Off the back of that they were kind enough to invite me to produce a highlights video of their annual gala ball event. Music was a major feature once again, with performances including a jazz set by students from the Royal Northern College of Music, and a bagpiper from the Scots Guards Association. To top it all off, swing singer Paul Pashley performed hit after hit, both old and new.

Hopefully my event highlights video captures the fun of the evening, but also a sense of what Broughton House is all about.

I've been producing digital content since 2012, primarily for flagship BBC brands like Blue Peter and BBC News. Now I run Studio 91 Media, a video production agency on a mission: to create content that is good for platforms, good for people and good for the planet. When I'm not behind a camera, I can often be found playing cello at weddings or riding a three-wheeled cargo bike called Babs.
