TED: Our Mission: Spread ideas

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.

Yesterday I was working for Ravinol Chambers of BE Inspired films. His company was responsible for the live streaming of the whole event to the internet – 5 hours of video seen in 44 countries! I was the camera operator responsible for the main speaker at any given moment, be it Dara O Briain or whoever was giving the particular speech. As well as being one of the cameras in part of the 5 camera coverage being streamed to the internet my camera was also being output to the large screens almost continuously so I really had to maintain my concentration all the time, a bit of an endurance event! Royal Albert Hall - mushroomsThe event was very informative and entertaining. Mr O Briain was his usual quick-witted self, holding the show together between speakers with a lot of hilarity. The talks themselves were really interesting – ranging from new synthetic bio-technology and understanding of the human body to the best methods of palliative care and our attitudes  towards death, with a whole range of topics in between. If you’re feeling brave  a link to the whole 5 hour video is below – I believe the talks will be catalogued and presented individually in the future at TEDMED.

I am a Freelance Lighting cameraman living in London. I have worked in broadcast television, films and corporate videos for nearly 25 years, starting at the very bottom as a tea boy and working my way up to the heady heights of Lighting Cameraman in London, working all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. It's been an interesting journey: from corporate films to news, commercials, children's and reality TV to feature films, working along the way as a runner, clapper loader, spark(electrician), focus puller, camera operator and lighting cameraman. I have met and learnt from all sorts of fascinating people in my working career, many of whom are firm friends to this day.
