I first worked with John Walsh of Walsh Brothers Films back in 2008 on the Prime Ministers Fellowship. John and his team were filming for The British Council, and educating the young British students for their forthcoming trips across the globe. Since then i've had the pleasure of working with John many times. 'Toy Soldiers' was put together and Directed by John, and explores the thoughts and feelings of children who's fathers were at war. Aiden, the boy in the picture I took for the show below, very sadly lost his father when he was 8 years old. These children tell their story from their perspective. Please head over to Johns site and watch Toy Soldiers
Karate Kids follows the friendships of two children with cerebral palsy. Tim cannot speak, so best friend Francis is his voice. However, when Tim embarks upon marital arts training his life changes forever. Karate Kids is a unique glimpse into a world that is ignored by mainstream society and often misunderstood by many children. This film challenges the perceptions around childhood disability. From award-winning and BAFTA nominated film-makers Walsh Bros. I worked during the making of the film, producing all the stills for use to promote and document the show.
The whole experience of working amongst these kids was very humbling.I'm very grateful to John Walsh and his production team for giving me the opportunity to work with them on this, and hope now to be doing more of this work and eventually some movie set stills...
