‘Happy Easton’ is a video showing the community of Easton in Bristol, in all it’s diversity. In keeping with the viral phenomenon created by Pharrell William’s ‘Happy’ video and song, we aimed to create a hook that would capture the attention of local residents, as well as Bristol as a whole. The area has had it’s fair share of social issues but has a core community of open minded people and good local business. The attention the film has gained, I think shows peoples belief in happiness over bad press and views are continually rising. [Camera, Co-Director and Editor]

After graduating from university in 2012, I immediately joined the Happy City Initiative in a voluntary capacity, helping communicate the not’t-for-profit organisations message and activities, This message being a society based on personal and community happiness being our measure success and value, rather than GDP economics. Working as a small media production team, myself, Sol Stephens and Rhiannon Lawton, project managed, shot and packaged coverage of the Happy City Zone, at Bristol’s Harbour Festival , every year to date. A wonderful experience, working with community and well being organisations, performers and volunteer media crew.

Below is a medley video from the ‘Happy Shack’, an interview booth myself and Sol Stephens constructed for the Happy City Initiative, a community action group. In total I cut 22 bite size VOX pops, for the promotion of the charity, asking festival goers what gives them lasting happiness.
