A Call For Help
I have been documenting protests in Greece for over 2 years now. If there was a protest in the last 2 years chances are I was there; video in hand and have amassed an impressive Youtube collection. It was apparent to me from the beginning though that my equipment (iPod and CyberShot) was completely inadequate and totally obsolete in dark environments and from a distance. I can only get as close to the action as possible and without proper equipment running to the frontlines to film is all for naught if it produces blurry barely recognizable videos. Imagine this video if filmed with this camera. I have been very hesitant these past few years to ask for any monetary assistance; but it has become abundantly clear to me that in the area of equipment; it is as if I am going into a gunfight with a slingshot. After recently being robbed of my iPod, it is now a necessity that I upgrade my equipment. The work that goes into a 3 minute video is far more than you would expect and I do it all because I enjoy it and don’t expect anything in return. Though if you are one of my followers who has appreciated my work over the years please consider assisting me in taking my journalistic efforts to the next level and making a small donation with Paypal.
