Freelance Artist

Simon Honey works in digital video with communities to help them explore issues, where it is likely to make a difference to the situation. He was Video Project worker based at Ecolocal for 3 years and has worked on other video freelance since then.

Currently he is working with Clusters, who are a centre of opportunity for people with disablities, to help them create videos about the centre activities.

An example of a typical commission: Working with a team of 3 young people aged 17 to 19 to produce a video commissioned by Sutton's Youth Offending Team. They learnt skills in script writing, story boarding, filming in different lighting conditions, and digital non linear editing using a video editing suite.

Since it's launch Shoplifting a Victimless Crime has been in demand Nationwide.

Still images from video commissionFor consent reasons stills from the video can only be shown here.

The video 'Shoplifting a Victimless Crime' showed all the consequences of shoplifting for staff, local communities, society, the shoplifter and their friends and family. A punchy, gritty and pacey 10 minute video, the Youth Offending Team said it excelled the brief and that the video could be used for much more than a discussion tool around Shoplifting in sessions for Youth Offenders.

Simon is all a video tutor working with members of clusters a centre of opportunity for adults with a disability. Links to their Youtube site below. Watch the videos and tell your friends. Everytime someone watches their videos, it raises money for the club.
