Thomas Cook – Manchester Pride
Thomas Cook approached me to capture their sponsorship of the Manchester Pride Event.
It was such a fun event to shoot, the kind of event that reminds me of why I love doing what I do. Getting amongst it all, being a part of the parade. Working with such a professional yet fun team. Being an event videographer I have shot a lot of events over the years but this one will really stick with me. After returning to Manchester after 10 years in Australia this was my first big gig and it gave me a real boost that I had made the right decision to return home to put down roots.
The film I created for Thomas Cook was praised by the public, the crew and team. It reached thousands of people on Facebook alone. I wanted to create that sense of pride which is what the weekend was all about. Now, when I watch it back I am still full of pride and I hope the smiling faces in the video will find new happiness in their new roles and their next journey’s ahead.
