Produce, Consume, Dispose, Repeat…….
Our modern economies are now highly dependent on consumer spending. When in recession, governments often rely on a ‘consumer led recovery’ to bring the economy into the black. ‘Consumer confidence’ is a measure of the strength of an economy. Uncontrolled consumption however is unsustainable. In the west, we are consuming goods at an ever greater speed, the resources we consume are difficult or impossible to replenish while the carbon released and pollution created is leading to a rapidly degraded natural environment.
A fleet of huge container ships is needed to bring the goods we consume to our doors in The West. The ship in the video carries up to 14,000 containers. The largest currently at sea carry around 21,000 containers and there are plans to build even larger ships in the near future.
The video has been created as part of a project I am working on in my MA in Fine Art.
Most smartphones are capable of producing good quality videos if used with care. This short instructional video was shot on an iPhone SE using FilmicPro.
This is a taste of what would be covered in a longer workshop. If you would like to learn more about my smartphone photography or videography workshops, please let me know.
Clients include; The Royal Photographic Society, the WI, Microsoft and the University of Bath.
Recipe and make it videos
Recipe or ‘make it videos are a great way to show your customers how they can adapt or customise your product. They can give your brand a human face and the customer feels like you are sharing something with them for free. Users may wish to share your videos on social media or embed them on their own sites so it is a good idea to incorporate your brand name or logo somewhere in the clip. Videos can be trickled out at regular intervals to generate customer interest, recipe videos can themed around seasons, or celebrations such as Christmas. Videos can also be used to introduce new products or showcase established ones.
