Urgent Update!

I can clearly see that my updates have been more than slacking of late, and this needs to change, I will be doing mass changes to my blog over the next few weeks.

of course this dairy of how my productions will not have a middles but does have a begining and a end... i have made all my pratical deadlines for multicam and my lives.... NOW PAPER WORK!

To refresh this is a big unit of work where we act if the show is being broadcast live with mixed VT's on the 19th January. We had to stick to a strict timescale for the show, and sadly missed the last few seconds, but this is a huge learning curve, I can say though my SFX for the gunshot was on time even if we didnt see a gun, they where sound issues with the show and i was sound for the last part (who Laura Glendenning was Director) of the show where a microphone failed, and the backup microphone began to ring! however i feel we did do the best to work around this. I was also in charge of camera 2 in the begining of the show I did make mistakes which I didnt make in rehersuals (sorry Steven Swain / Director), I also done the Programming and Graphics for the show (complied the VT's) which had about 3 final versions... nothing new

Lives (Client Work)

(Director - Karl Keenen / Producer - Peter Silk)

I was Camera and Editor, thanks to the snow we had it had a weeks worth of shoots before Christmas which left lots of last minute filming for the deadline however we filmed it and I even editted a version. even handed in a day early i will still be working on the edit for the client to get

WaterWoman - (Straight 8)
(Director - Peter Silk / Producer - Jo Clayton)

I was Cinematographer along with Andy Harrison
But seriously NO 5 O'CLOCK STARTS for this project, we where meant to shoot this again before christmas, sadly again snow and cliff's dont mix so.... no shooting, but since we got back we have had many early starts for sun rises near the sea and on monday it was a big filming day... pushing everything we had from pick ups at 6AM to drop off after 6PM we needed to film it in that one day, we pushed and pushed and got it all filmed, it was a very enduring day with frezzing conditions and laying on wet sand to get shots with no 2nd chances, but we did it!

At the same time of filming this project we also did a digital copy i will hope to upload a copy of this project... depending on how its going to be marketed?

(Director - Andy Harrison / Producer - Laura Glendenning)

I was Editor

I spent 2 days editing this 1 minute project straight after waterwoman, This shoot was always planned after newyear however it did have added pressure thanks to all my over projects but with good planning somehow made it all work... i will hope to be able to put a link up of the final piece soon

Before Christmas time (shows how long its been since i did update) I helpped Laura Degnan on a film shoot where I was genral runner and stills i will be uploading some of these's stills soon, I enjoyed taking part in the production and made some good contacts on the shoot, which will help me in the future.
