One of the first video projects I set myself was to create a short promo video of Bath. This was primarily a learning piece for me for both filming and editing.
We set out early in the morning to do our best to beat all the crowds and to give ourselves the best chance to film the quiet streets. I had a list of the main areas I wanted to cover but because we were not working to a strict schedule, I had the freedom to shoot anything else that took my eye during the day.
It was the first day I had taken out the Zacuto Z Finder Pro x2.5 and it is amazing, it makes filming so much easier especially on a sunny day. We also took out the slider for the first time, I am rather glad I didn’t have to carry it myself!! I’m only little and it weighs a ton when in the same bag as the tripod, I wouldn’t have got very far on my own!! Love the effect from using it, though in a busy city its really only usable when the street are quiet. It was a fun day and I am really happy with the final piece. I hope you like it too 🙂
Exciting news! Today I have launched a new sub-section to my work base HLB Media. As you will have seen from previous blog posts and tweets I have started working more within the videography world. It’s something that’s developed from doing it in my day job over the last 6 months, I’ve learnt so much and have really enjoyed putting my new-found skills into action!
HLB Media is a developing area of work and I am looking forward to showing you what I have been doing. Keep checking back to the new site, videos will be posted soon!
I am currently working in collaboration with Obsidian Entertainment. If you are interested in working with us on a video project please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently I was called by a friend and asked if I would like to go to London to do a photo shoot with East 17. The shoot would be for all their new promo material. Of course I said yes!
I have always liked East 17 so it was a pleasure to spend an afternoon with them taking their new pictures.
It was great to work with you, thanks guys!
