I received a great compliment for a portrait I made, by a very talented artist, Selma. And she went on to then create a new piece of art inspired by this portrait. She connected with me via Instagram and here is the shared result. I feel energised!
Child Safe Guarding film for Save the Children in Laos
The film was made in close cooperation with the children of the Luang Prabang library and their care givers. You will see below a compilation of stills that were taken from the film to show you part of the method we used. This included IPad transitions, whiteboard animatons, set up scenarios and digital studio backgrounds for the two main presenters. Overall we had a lot of fun making this film and the kids loved being part of the process.
This promo was made with support from the US Embassy in Vientiane and part of a larger project to make a 50 minute documentary about the Heritage of Luang Prabang. This video received around 120.000 views via Social Media. Please embed this anywhere to help promote this lovely South East Asian town.

Confluence is where two rivers meet, in this case the Mekong and Khan rivers in Luang Prabang.
When the water levels, after the rains during the wet season, slowly go down it’s time to pick up the nets and go fishing.
Enjoy the scenery!
