A few days into shooting the series we got a phone call from the producers at filmaka.com saying they wanted a behind the scenes video. I was working as a production assistant at the time and a Sony Z1 camera was thrust into my hands. I shot whenever I could between other duties on set. If the series goes viral I may release more clips.
I snatched the interview at the end of a very busy film shoot. They actually had a deadline that day and Alec Christie can be seen uploading an episode in the background.

I designed the www.kayakproductions.com website using Dreamweaver, Photoshop, HTML and CSS. In the process I make it more user friendly and google friendly. As a result it shot up the goolge rankings and received a boost in visitors.
I have a masters degree (MSc) in making computers user friendly. This is a slightly embarrassing video I made demonstrating my masters degree project.
The project was a video game called Multi Dance that teaches children multiplication tables. It was designed to be foot controlled using a dance mat. The idea was to use technology and exercise to make learning fun. Maybe I was on to something because now Nintendo are doing similar things with Brain Training and the Wii Fit.
I made the video on my home PC with no budget, borrowing a camera from the university and using free editing software from the internet. Thankfully, since making this video I’ve learned professional film-making techniques like using a tripod, fading in music and not wearing national health service glasses.
Created as part MSc masters degree project in human-centred computer systems at Sussex University, tutored by Dr Judith Good.
