Working with GAF-TV: News, Photos, and Video

Oh it feels so good to be back blogging again, I certainly missed it!
As you guys know I had been working with the Galway Arts Festival's Tv crew "GAF-TV" for most of July, and I just thought I'd tell you guys a little bit more about that, and show you some of the finished videos we worked on.

 Working with GAF-TV was an amazing experience, I met some really wonderful people, and I learned so so much in such a short space of time. It was a completely different experience to working with Diet Coke Tv, as I was working behind the camera, rather that in front of it presenting, but it was so interesting and challenging nonetheless. The main piece I was working on over the two weeks was the "Thank You & Goodnight" video, which was to be the finale of all the GAF-TV videos, and aired at the end of the festival. The idea behind the video was to get as many people as possible dancing on camera, and to get people from all over Galway, from all walks of life, different ages, backgrounds, occupations and so on, to do a little bit of a boogie to Chic's "Everybody Dance". (Chic are a massive disco/funk band from the 70/80's and were the headlining act of the festival- they're amazing!) My job in particular was to get reactions out of people, get them pumped up and ready to be on camera, and make sure they give enough energy when they're being filmed, and of course, get them dancing! You need a serious amount of energy to do this over and over for a long time, and if your energy flags when you're dealing with people, they wont give you as much on camera. Its also really important to make people feel comfortable on camera, which so many people are not, to show them that there's nothing to be embarrassed about. I ended up dancing just as much as they people we were filming, only behind the camera! Doing this kind of work only convinces me further that this is what I should be doing, this is the path I should follow :) 

There was a huge amount of work put in by everyone involved in GAFT-TV, resulting in so many amazing videos being made and aired throughout the whole festival. Check out the GAF-TV Youtube page to see some of their amazing work. 

  One of my other highlights of the whole festival was going to see Chic play at the big-top with my sisters and mother, and getting to dance onstage with my sisters! (Mum was side-stage, but wouldn't come dance with us unfortunately :P) It was such a fun experience, we danced out buts off,  and we got to meet Neil Rodgers afterwards and chatted to him for a while. He was such a gentleman, and a true musical legend!


Forbidden Fun...

You know when things just come together?...
When everything falls into place and its just beautiful? Well that would probably be the best way to describe my Forbidden Fruit experience... Having just returned from the awe-inspiring Primavera Sound Festival two weeks ago (& after having had a rip-roarin' good time mind you) another festival adventure was the last thing on my excitable little mind.... that is until, into my unexpecting hands fell a Sunday ticket, a lift, a place to stay, and most importantly some wonderful people to go with...

To say I had a good time would be quite the understatement, I got to see one of my absolute favourites, Caribou, who managed to coax the sun out from its hiding place as they were playing their epic and aptly-titled tune "Sun". Another band highlight, was Not Squares,(a cracking Irish band you should check out)who had us all under their spell as they belted out some of their anthems, and reminding me once again of the mind-boggling standard of Irish music at present.

I even managed to do some style-spotting, keeping my eyes peeled for any little festival fashionistas that might catch my eye, and Boy did I find some... Its wonderful how festivals give people the freedom to be more adventurous and creative in their style.

I love taking street style photos, you get to meet the nicest and most interesting people. Everyone is so enthusiastic, and many extremely flattered to have their photo taken for something.

Forbidden Fruit marks my second festival of the summer, and with two more to go, I'm feeling a very lucky girl indeed, ah la vie c'est belle!

I'll stop rambling now, promise.

Hope you like the photos guys,
and here's a bitta Caribou for the road sure :)
