Melanie Phillips, the outspoken Daily Mail columnist is famous for her shifting political allegiances. She started life as a writer for the Guardian and Observer before gradually realising that she is more suited to asking the simple but hard hitting questions the Mail does.
Her latest venture is the e-publishing company emBooks. A place where equally outspoken journalists and authors can get a platform. Halo Films was part of the team asked to film the launch party. Held at one of Rocce Forte’s beautiful London hotels, we filmed the distinguished guests, the speeches and a later reading from one of the books. Needed by the media the next day we edited through the night and sent the finished 3 minute film to the States by 6:00am the next morning.
