Dartmoor Floods


A short film.

Dartmoor is flooded.
James Baudouy and Hamish Holman document this flooding with car mounted cameras. They get home at 20:00 that evening to find the family home (situated below Haytor) flooded.

Battling the floods for 4 hours, no progress is made to stop the water seeping up and flowing into the house. Local farmer Steve Palmer is called up for help. Steve and the team attempt to divert the flood to save the house from further damage.

This was achieved by tractor power, a chainsaw, lots of digging and resulted in a new waterfall being created.

The front lawn 100m long with a 4ft high wall filled up like a pond. This volume of water has never been experienced here before.


About jamesbaudouy

An inspired and energetic person whose passions lie in media, television and film with a focus on camera work. As a First Class graduate in Multi-Media Technology (Bsc), I have a wide range of industry standard media skills, with which I wish to pursue with in the create industries. Specialising in creative video production at university, I created the opportunity to work with my first clients, The British Institute of Inn Keeping (BII), for my final year project. This involved a number of meetings, working from briefs, prototyping work and adhering to deadlines. As part of a team, I was involved with each stage of the production focusing mainly on camera work and editing. I have since been based in Bristol and continuously working in video either as a freelancer or on my own projects. My aim is to work as part of the camera crew or alongside a self-shooting cameraman to learn the highest possible standard of camera craft, to drive me forward in the filming industries.
