RNOH Funding Appeal Reportage

Multimedia Film On Amazing People

This is the most important project I did during 2012; a look at an amazing hospital in Stanmore, Middlesex called the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH). The original film was first commissioned by the hospital’s charity to help raise funds. After filming I spent several days at the RNOH with the aim of just shooting images. Leica M9s to hand, I was fortunate to see some wonderful moments and combined with a recent visit to the children’s ward by the hospital’s Patron, HRH Princess Eugenie in December, I decided to make a completely new edit of the film, incorporating the photographs.

 

RNOH Appeal Film Launch

Film Premiere & Exhibition

What an amazing evening. We had the launch of our RNOH appeal film; a project we have been working on since our first meeting in April 2011. The film was premiered at a special event at St James’s Palace by HRH Prince Andrew and HRH Princess Eugenie. I shall be posting a in-depth article on the project with some behind the scenes photographs and technical briefing on techniques and equipment used. Firstly tough, it is my pleasure to show you our film:

Alongside the film was also a photographic exhibition of images I had taken around the hospital, documenting the amazing work that goes on there, despite the conditions of the fabric of the hospital.
