Some of you will know that I embarked this year on a Masters degree
in Documentary Film in International Development
. The course is through De Montfort University
in the UK.
To help gather information on the next phase of the project I have set up a new blog
for the project and at the moment I am focusing on the work produced by UNTV
, where I worked as a documentary cameraman during the war in the former Yugoslavia in 1994/5.
Here’s one of the snaps from those days of me cozying up to a Serbian checkpoint guard called Snjezana, with whom we have made a little film as part of UNTV’s Video Letters
series. Needless to say Snjezana was very different to most of the checkpoint guards we came across - most were large blokes with guns on a power trip, very often drunk and always on the scrounge for cigarettes. Read more about that story here.
