Feed Me Music, Feature

For my mini feature I wanted it to be about care assistants or people that help the people in need and their story. I wanted a different approach and for the subject not just to be the one with the illness or needing help but the person who is helping, their story.
My first shoot and idea was going to be about Dementia Friends, a charity where people called ‘Champions’ train up and take time out of their day to assist people with Dementia and I was going to document a day in the life of a care assistant and the training that they do to get to Champion stage. Unfortunately things fell through, but I still may be doing a shoot with them in February.
My second idea was to do a feature on an event called Feed Me Music that was happening at The Performance Center in University. The Food Bank were collaborating with Little Miss Music  Management to create an 8 hour music event where people bring food to donate instead of money for tickets, i wanted to capture the whole event and how they are helping hundreds of people in need of a meal but also giving people the entertainment of music.
The shoot went well,  I managed to get some contacts and sent photos off to be used in a press release and possibly a feature, sent them off to papers also but they were not chosen.
I had some trouble with low lighting trying to capture the audience but managed to overcome that with lenses and being patient
but the lights with the music performers worked well  and got some good candid shots of people donating food and enjoying themselves .

The Food Bank in Penryn, Falmouth currently helps many parents, students and elderly in making sure they have food as they cannot afford to. It was set up by Sarah Simons and her husband, they give  out the food at Highway Church and it has many volunteers helping out as well.

Little Miss Music Production's Louise Martin has created a collaborative 'Feed Me Music' event with The Food Bank in which there is an eight hour music performance and instead of  guests having tickets for the event they will be donating food and household items.  A child is donating some food whilst volunteers help at The Performance Center on Saturday 18th January.

This was only half the amount of food which was donated by guests, this will get weighed at the church after the event and recorded to see how far the charity has come. In the first two years of  The Food Bank they collected 13,200 kilos of food and helped 791 adults and 231 children.
