The ‘sheet‘s Vanessa Foran (her off the telly!) and Neil Curran (him off the telly what also produces!) conduct an afternoon vox-pop on the heatwave with flower seller Craig (top right with Vanessa and Neil), among others, sharing their thoughts.
Contains: ‘heat-induced’ iffy camera work, rambling from behind the mic and, frankly, startling post-production techno music ‘stings’.
We made this video [yesterday] and by chance a homeless man asked could he be part of it and make a new year’s resolution. We found it very moving and as a result became almost the story behind the video. He had quite an impact on us when we got home to edit the footage and realised that his desires for the new year were incredibly pragmatic compared to ours. We hope that perhaps it will help raise awareness although the message is intentionally not too obvious. He appears near the end. Made us think about our priorities in 2012.
