Folk Festival

This is a promotional video I shot and edited for the for the national 2009 Chippenham Folk Festival.

It was edited in Final Cut Pro, with the graphical elements created in Motion. I used illustrative text to allude to the traditional elements of the festival and incorporated the video footage into a selection of relevant music. Animated graphics link the sequences together to suggest a natural and friendly ambience.

The film was designed to give a flavour of the event and to convey it's genuinely happy atmosphere whatever the weather! Folk artists and followers are renowned for their ability to dance and sing and play whatever the circumstances and I wanted the film to convey that sense of joy!
