Barry based film production company Memorable Creative Journalism, MCJ, has been shortlisted for this year’s Wales International Documentary Festival for its latest micro-documentary, The Veggie Shepherd.
MCJ Creative Director Mariclare Carey-Jones said “It is such fantastic news to be
recognised by such a prestigious event, particularly at a time when things are so
uncertain for the arts given the impact of the coronavirus restrictions”.
Throughout the pandemic MCJ has continued to produce a range of films about
the impact of the virus, and many of them have been for corporate companies
who wanted to communicate with their clients during a difficult time. “We were
approached by several companies who wanted to make films for their clients
about how they had moved to home working and selling online” says Mariclare,
“all of the videos were made in a socially distanced way using the very latest
technology to help tell some important stories”. As well as making films, MCJ has
also been delivering virtual media training sessions via Zoom to organisations
such at the Royal College of Nursing.
“The who world seems to have gone online!” says Mariclare, “and the Wales
International Documentary Festival is no exception, it will be a virtual festival for
the first time ever this year when it takes place in September and our film, The
Veggie Shepherd is one of just three micro-documentaries being screened and
we are so proud to be part of the event”.
