Cardiff Street Food Christmas Market to be filmed

The first Cardiff Street Food Festival at The Mack on 17th November was a great success – so much so, that  a special Cardiff Street Food Christmas Market has been arranged for Saturday 15th December.

Independent film maker Carolina Vasquez has teamed up with Cardiff Street Food to make a video of the event – and we’ll be featuring it on RoathCardiff when it’s ready to go.

Here, Carolina explains how she got involved, and how you can be in the film:

I love tasting new food and sharing cooking ideas with friends. I also love events happening on the street, from festivals to games to marathons and live music. So when I first heard of the Cardiff Street Food Festival I got very excited – it was something I did not want to miss.

I went along with my friend Chris Young, and we navigated our way through the crowds, listened to the bands, chatted, and of course ate great food! Chris is a musician and I’m a film maker and as we were sat eating, we couldn’t help but notice the big white building next to the vendors and we chatted about the possibility of creating video projection to live music for a future Cardiff Street Food event.  Whenever there is an event happening on the street, people are out and about and there is lovely sense of community, so we wanted to add a little something for others to enjoy.

Through twitter, I noticed the organisers were asking for feedback about the event as there were plans to do another. Well this next one has come much quicker than I thought – which is great! We aren’t quite ready to perform yet, so I offered to film the event and create a video mashup with highlights of the day. They came back to me and said yes! I asked Chris if he wanted to make the music and he’s agreed, so we’ll be there on Saturday filming the fun. Come chat to us on December 15th and share your thoughts about the food, the vibe, and your experience at the Cardiff Street Food Christmas Market.

Here’s my showreel so you can see the kind of things I’ve done and am interested in filming.
