Invest in Africa Summit

Corporate

‘Invest in Africa Summit’ is a great day shoot to add to my video portfolio. The speakers and panel discussions lasted nearly 6 hours and the event was held at the Dorchester Hotel, in London’s Mayfair. Organised by The African Leadership Magazine.

Alive & Cooking

Corporate & Pilot

Retired restaurateur Harold Rubin demonstrates cookery recipes elderly people could do by themselves. Both partly scripted, and some improve. Philip Carr used Starnow ad, to recruit me to film the B-roll inserts of all the food recipe preparation. See the edit of that footage just below. The full pilot episode is beneath it.

Rough Night

Short Film

On mandy.com, an advert wanted video editors to assess how to shorten a 7′,00” rough cut. I applied to be the editor, but got no reply, so I did an edit regardless. My fine cut is 4′,20″ and is ungraded without a sound mix, or credits. Someone had a good night out…

Kadisha Kadisha

Self-Promotion

Kadisha invited me to film her short performance at the Bow Festival in east London. To view Kadisha Kadisha Instagram profile touch the title. Filmed on a bright day, with a 1/4 ND filter, using a 6.3 f-stop and a daylight white balance.I sat in the audience to film her. This snippet is 90″.

Kadisha left me a glowing recommendation, for my portfolio on Starnow.

Runaround

Short Film

Vic, a cocky car salesman joins Bianca, a customer for a test drive in a very prestigious car. As Bianca drives the car, she loves how it feels, but can Vic stay the distance, and get a sale. As the sole Producer, Director and Editor of this short it was a logistic challenge to do, but with the support of a great team, we did it. A great short for my portfolio. 

Progressions

Self-Promotion

Shot in a gym; under sparse ceiling lights. The instructor, wore a wireless Sennheiser AVX lapel microphone and a super cardioid was placed in the shock mount of the FS5 for atmos. See the full tutorial plays for 5′,20″. The snippet below is 90″. I got this work from shooting people jobs forum.

To support the techniques referred to; you turn a smartphone slightly on its side but not flat, until the screen is more or less askew. Then use the FS5 to film the screen playback of the fight bout; in this example of a YouTube Channel. Not subtle, but effective. A common practice done by filmmakers to avoid copyright problems.
