Thaloria Quest Adventure Journal - Kickstarter Video Project

Being a secret geek and having enjoyed role-playing books – From my childhood memories reading the likes of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson, as well as more advanced tabletop Dungeons and Dragon games and Pathfinder. It was an immediate “yes” when Jason, the founder of Ocular Oddities Publishing and creator of the Thaloria Quest Adventure Journal, approached me to produce video and photography for a Kickstarter campaign to generate investment and interest in the journal.

If you’ve worked with me or have seen my social media posts, you may also know that I’m an advocate of good mental health. I was impressed by how Jason had “gamified” the process of journaling (known to help with mental health), achieving daily tasks, and setting goals by combining his love of fantasy & tabletop gaming with the structure of a journal. In his words, it’s a fun way to stay on top of boring to-do lists!

Thaloria Quest Kickstarter Launch Video

I can’t take credit for the video editing, as this was completed by the excellent Ellie Stavrou, who was already on board the project before I started. I produced all the main footage and B-roll, though!


Of course, I’m going to be slightly biased when it comes to my video or photography work. The filming and resulting video are extra special for me, seeing that Sydney is also my daughter! Sorry, not sorry for the proud dad moment!

Early in the project, while discussing and planning the video production phase, we discussed having an actress perform the voiceover. Seeing as my daughter is studying Drama, I put her name in the hat; after an interview/audition she got the job!

Product Photography

The project wasn’t just about video footage; I was also commissioned to produce product photograph of the journal and all the extras and accessories that come with or can be added to the journal experience.

The Outtakes!

When I talk to anyone about being able to discuss their project, they can talk about it with passion and be totally relaxed. Very often their enthusiasm will shine through naturally.

Then I turn the camera on! 😳

Trust me, it’s not easy if you’re not used to talking to the camera – Yes, there are some naturals out there, but more often than not, it takes practice, a little coaching, and of course, it can be fun to make a bloopers reel, too!
