A Film from Ecuador: Escuela speranza de Bastion

26 Nov

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since my last blog post. And it’s been a while since we shot this film in Ecuador.

I’m happy this is the case, with the film anyway. I’ve learned so much in the past year about myself and about filming and piecing together footage to tell a story. I’m glad that we took the time needed to produce a video that we’re happy with (both my self and the folks who help keep the school ticking), and one that showcases the wonderful atmosphere of Escuela speranza de Bastion (Hope of Bastion School).

I’m not going to fill you in on the details about the school. But I will say that these kids are disappointed when summer holiday comes around, because they love being in school so much (this also says something about the neighbourhood they live in). I will also let you know that each student is sponsored to be there. Francisca, who’s now in university, was sponsored to attend the school back when it first opened. If you’d like to find out how to get involved, contact Nikki Horne, through their website: www.sponsorhope.ca 

The audio was recorded and mixed by my audio extraordinaire brother, Luke Bennett.

A bulk of the commercial projects I have been working on in the past month are for internal use, and as a result can’t be shared publicly. So, this has kept me very busy with work, but with not a whole lot to blog about. Cracking the hood open on the old blog has given me some ideas for future posts. I plan to be back in the game in another week or so.

Until then, Buenas Noches, Amigos!
