It’s that time of year again when everyone fires up their barbeques and opens a bottle of wine. At least that’s what everyone was doing at Meatopia 2017 when I went to film the McGuigan stand down at Tobacco dock in London back at the start of the month.
I’ve just found the edit online of the filming I did at the end of June with tennis legend Jamie Murray taking on four tennis professionals in a game sponsored by Chilean wine brand Anakena for whom Jamie is an ambassador. Watch the video below to see how seriously they take it!
I’ve just seen that Swarovski have uploaded their Lanvin Spring 2017 video. I shot this along with another cameraman a while back. Swarovski wanted a watery feel which we achieved with some rather Heath Robinson methods.
Crest Academy in London approached me to film a short promotional video. I spent the day filming in and around the school as well as some pieces to camera. I loved filming there – the pupils were so accommodating and friendly.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been filming for a documentary series called Anatomy of an Athlete on the Olympic Channel. This is for series two and each series has six episodes, each featuring a different athlete being put through their paces, undergoing a series of tests in a lab.
Another year, another Sussex food and drink video! I shot this one towards the end of last year but it’s been under wraps until after the Sussex Food & Drink Awards ceremony had taken place on the 1st February.
It’s always fascinating to see artisans at work. Jewellery makers are no exception. I spent three days in Paris at a specialist atelier to film the design and manufacture of rings, bracelets and earrings. We packed a lot into three days and I look forward to seeing the finished edit when it’s completed.
Sometimes filming conferences can be interesting! For the past two days I’ve been filming for an American multinational technology company who were hosting a summit in London for their partners. My role was to provide footage for a ‘sizzle reel’ of the two days.
Jewellery filming fascinates me as often I am required to shoot very close up macro content. This shoot for House of Garrard was no exception. Over several days, with one other cameraman, I filmed footage for a bridal collection as well content to be used in several other videos.
In 2014 I went to Malta to film preparations for the 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race. Some of my footage from that event two years ago can be seen here. In April this year I was again filming for IMG on behalf of Rolex but this footage was for a piece to be included in the 2016 Rolex China Sea Race documentary.
Back in May I went to Lords cricket ground to film Jimmy Anderson for a series of online promotional videos for Brut. Production company and photographic agency rb-create directed, produced and edited a number of videos with my footage also putting together some fantastic graphics. The day was split between a sit down interview in front of a greenscreen and then some slow motion footage out on the pitch.
I’ve just returned home after spending the day with supermodel Karlie Kloss. I was filming behind the scenes footage during a Swarovski photoshoot. She was a true professional – a long day with lots of costume changes and lots of cameras pointed at her. Rather her than me!
The Etape Caledonia is an 81 mile cycling sportive over an 81 mile course through the Scottish Highlands. I went to film it as part of a small team for photographic and video agency rb-create at the start of May. This edit has just gone online.
