I haven't posted here in a while, as my life has changed a little. Sad to say I am no longer working for FXHOME, having moved on to something new. Since October I have been working for a British charity/Malagasy NGO, Azafady, as a volunteer co-ordinator in Madagascar. A far cry from web development, I now spend most of my days out "in the bush", living in a tent and doing construction work.
It's been a lot of fun, and some days very hard work, but it's incredibly rewarding to work alongside the community here on projects that really matter. In the short time I've been here, we've made repairs to two wooden primary schools, built loads of benches, made over a hundred flat-pack latrine kits for poor households, and recently started work on a new concrete secondary school.
I hope all your filmmaking projects are going well, and look forward to catching up on some movies made in HitFilm once I get access to a faster Internet connection!
P.S. We're always looking for more volunteers - take a look at azafady.org
if you're interested.
P.P.S. Lots of photos here
