Recently we partnered with the Banking Media Corporation (BMC) to create a new video highlighting the work of The Big Issue Foundation. Check it out!
DOP Matthew and lead actor Anthony on set
BMC is a creative agency that has primarily focused on creating video adverts in the corporate and commercial sector. However, they were looking to use their skills to give back and do something a bit different. CEO Saber Hussain said:
“The Big Issue Foundation project was, for us, a privilege and allowed us to do exactly that. In this project, we wanted to pay homage to some of the Big Issue’s service pillars; providing access to housing, healthcare, vendor sales and improving homeless individuals self –esteem, which all help to dismantle the root causes of poverty in our society.”
It was clear we were working with an organisation that understood the work of The Big Issue Foundation and our ethos.
Matthew Wood, DOP and Editor, was particularly keen to work on a project that gave back to society: “I’ve always admired The Big Issue Foundation and the way they give dignity back to those in need. I jumped at the chance to shoot and edit this piece. It was a pleasure to create something that would be sharing such a positive message”.
