Multi-cam filming to the music

Filming a multi-camera concert is exciting! Specially when you have the proper live video production truck with all available gear and tool. It's another story to have 5 independent cameras scattered around the Cadogan Hall in London while filming a choir concert. Yep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUKcTgvKz4o You don't have intercom, so you can't give real-time directions to … Continue reading Multi-cam filming to the music

Instagrammers behind the scenes

They filmed it in LA, I edited it between NY and London. There was this snow storm in New York, so my flight back to London was cancelled. What could I do?

Sweating in the editing room

So, this one looked pretty easy, right? I've got the brief, I've got the requirements and some of the assets. Get young, semi-professional sportspeople under heavy sun. Well, I was about to discover the delights of image researchers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgsaxBpEXKE This is the final advert after 8 revisions. The music track was a hit, the first candidate was perfect. But stock footage libraries are … Continue reading Sweating in the editing room

Choir CD recording

The Pink Singers have just released their 4th CD, filled with songs that have been arranged by members of the choir themselves. So I brought my cameras to one of the recording sessions in ENO's Lilian Baylis House. Here's the story of the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_G-ACqquSk I must have been overexcited, because I filmed so much footage that I … Continue reading Choir CD recording

Saturated paradise, very fast

This is a timelapse video I filmed last summer in Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park. A seven days hike gave us some very beautiful scenery, as always. This used to be my favourite place on Earth. It's paradise for hikers, climbers and nature-lovers. In this video I could experiment with some plugins to try and give it … Continue reading Saturated paradise, very fast
