Dreamflight t-shirts for the entire trip. Without the other camera operators
giving up their time and energy to the trip and industry sponsors such as
Procam, the charity wouldn’t be able to create these priceless memories
of the life changing holiday. At Procam we hope to continue to support
Dreamflight with kit and crew for many years to come and I would personally
advise anybody else to seriously consider offering their time to this wonderful
charity, and be part of the team that changes children’s lives.
The volunteer video team is made up of professional cameramen, editors,
directors, anyone willing to give their time and have fun! If you’ve been
inspired and want to be part of the Dreamflight video team in the future or
are interested in becoming a sponsor, email Freelance Cameraman and
Dreamflight Video Team Co-ordinator, Jon Boast at
email@example.com on the time they’d had and how

which was an extremely rewarding
experience to be a part of.
Even the process of editing is a

looking to improve their filming skills.
Overall I created 20 hours of footage
which I now have to edit down into
a one hour bespoke video memory.
There is a real skill to deciding which
shots to use and how to create the
most effective and lasting memory.
Looking through all of the footage
I’ve created has helped me to see
how I could shoot it differently and
reflect on how I can improve my
filming in the future.
It’s an experience I would repeat
again in a heartbeat. For other
budding camera operators I would
definitely recommend giving up your
time to get out and shooting as
much as possible: you can learn so
much from simply filming as much
as you can whenever you can. I’m
proud to, along with Procam, have
supported the great work undertaken
by Dreamflight this year. The video
I’m creating will provide priceless
memories of the trip for many of the
192 seriously ill and disabled children
that went on this year’s trip. We were
happy at Procam to donate some
of the cameras which facilitated the
12 strong video team: two XF105’s
and two GoPro HERO 3’s along
with sponsoring the video team’s
