In the last year, I’ve been experimenting a bit with videography.
From my minor dabbling, I’ve found Filmmaking a satisfying and fulfilling art that is simultaneously similar and completely different from Photography.
Here’s my work so far.
Travels in the Pearl of Africa from Lydia Francis on Vimeo.
This is the video version  of my 19 days serving + seeing Jesus in the Pearl of Africa {part 1} {part 2}. It really is different watching the kids move versus seeing their faces in a still-picture.
Music: Strawberry Swing by Coldplay
June. from Lydia Francis on Vimeo.
This is just an excerpt from my life in June 2012. It was an insanely busy and fun month for me and included the Gospel Coalition National Women’s Conference, Harlan KY, and Asheville with my family.
Music: White Winter Hymnal by the Fleet Foxes
Modern Expectations from Lydia Francis on Vimeo.
Oh, Modern Expectations. This video was created as a class project for my English II Class. We filmed quickly and efficiently and kind of, sort of nailed it! The assignment was to plan a Victorian wedding inspired by Charles Dickens’s novel Great Expectations. In the novel, Miss Havisham is ecstatic to be getting married, but her fiance is not because he does not really love her.  Our film definitely plays with that idea. The Bride was overjoyed at the prospect of marriage, but the Groom was supposed to look like he is headed to his funeral.
Music: Intermission by Couer de Pirate
Sons and Daughters by the Decemberists
Lydia to Africa from Lydia Francis on Vimeo.
I created this short informational video when I first announced that I was going to Uganda. It was a way to let people know where I was going, what I was doing, and how they could help.
Music: Go Do by Jonsi.
