Watch and learn: A bit more about my videos
In this week’s blog, I want to tell you a bit more about some of the videos I’ve captured of my work over the years. You may have spotted the videos section on my site, but perhaps you’ve not explored it yet. After reading this you will hopefully be inspired to do just that!
First up, you’ll see a one-minute video which is my ‘introduction’, set to a signature tune: The Last Heroes by Carlos Estella, an absolute favourite of mine. Why not take one minute to enjoy this inspiring and motivational orchestral track?
Next you’ll find my interview on Hey, Boomer! with Wendy Green. Hey, Boomer! Is a podcast that sets out to start meaningful conversations across generations, and to build bridges of understanding through stories shared by baby boomers. In this episode Wendy and I discuss how most of us are living unconsciously and following “the herd” into retirement. I’d love you to listen to it.
And the same goes for the interview with Hannah Hawkshaw, award-winning Irish blogger, in early October 2018, discussing my book Spirit of Gratitude: Crises are Opportunities, and the stories surrounding it.
Talking of Spirit of Gratitude: Crises are Opportunities, you can also find a one-hour video of the launch of this book in London in October 2018, introduced by Kym Sykes, which includes me reading selected passages from the book.
In addition to these retirement focused videos on my site, you might be interested in exploring some of my other films. There is an Armenia TV News report on my book Daylight After a Century, and the accompanying exhibition of 100 photographs taken by my grandfather in the early 1900s, at the Armenian Genocide Museum in Yerevan, Armenia, in November 2015.
There is also a 30-minute video documentary, produced with Holly Harrington-Ball, of the story behind the discovery of these photographs which were taken in the early 1900s of life and people in Ottoman Turkey before the First World War and the Armenian Genocide, which extinguished a civilization in that part of the world.
You can also watch an interview with me on Voice of Armenians TV in New York, and a trailer for the Daylight After a Century documentary.
Finally, you might like to watch a short news documentary I produced in 1993 while studying my Master’s degree in Journalism at New York University. This won me an EMMY Award in 1994 for first place in New Documentary for College Television Awards at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
