What Happens When You Call 999?

Play on Vimeo for better quality.

Video production has been another interest of mine and a couple of years ago I wrote, filmed and edited a short film for the East Sussex Fire Service, documenting how they deal with a 999 call, I was the first person in this area to gain access to film such a documentary. The film was made in association with my Trinity Silver Arts Award. The film was nominated for awards and screened at several filmmakers awarding bodies namely: The ‘Leeds Young People Film festival’ and ‘The Co-operative young film makers’ festival’, was awarded 2 stars at the ‘IAC British International’ amateur film competition and won the ‘Sound and Architect’ film and media festival prize, which led to an invitation for me to have a private tour of the BBC South East and watch the live show from the studio gallery.

This film could not have been made without the support of the teams at both Eastbourne Fire Station and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service HQ. Many thanks go to all the staff.
