AKLFair on Film
A few months before the June 2015 Fair, we sat down for a chat with our friends at Swift & Click about how we could go about documenting the day that is the Auckland Fair.
Aside from being an awesome event, bursting with handmade, the Auckland Fair is also put together at the venue on the day of the Fair. Every supplier, table, chair, light, speaker, plant and more is brought in from 5am (after I have arrived), set up and organised before the Makers arrive and set up their stalls. So when the public walks through the doors at 11am, there has been a lot going on! But it doesn’t end there, at the end of the day, it all has to be packed up and shipped out in the same evening. Needless to say, it’s a lot of work!
With the video, I wanted to show the story of the day unfolding and give you all a glimpse into the magic of the day that is, the Auckland Fair.
