I haven’t entered any competitions for a while or made any films for myself. So I thought i’d have a go at the Sony FS7ii Competition.
Feel free to give the video a like on YouTube!
Unfortunately I misread the brief and the top ten videos with the most amount of likes will advance to judging stage, so it probably won’t get a look in! I get the reason why they run these as popularity contests, but it just means some really great entries don’t get shortlisted.
Even so I had loads of fun making the film and music over the weekend. It’s so tough to get a decent story in to 60 seconds.
If you want to know anything about the gear/setup, drop a comment below!
Also, here are a couple of my other favourites from YouTube:
Some really good editing on this one. Really really professional.
This one had me smiling a lot. Everyone needs perking up on their daily commute, especially when they live in London!
Earlier this year I visited the far east and travelled around Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand for three weeks. I used up all of my holiday allocation from my job, so longer trips to other countries were off the cards.
I was thinking about how I’ve travelled thousands of miles to see incredible sights, but haven’t really fully explored whats right under my nose in the UK. Earlier this year I went wild camping in the Lake District and went back to Cornwall for the first time in years.
Last weekend my girlfriend, my friend and I travelled to Snowdon in North Wales to climb the second highest peak in the UK and I made a little video about the adventure.
Last week I made this film for Workshop Birmingham. Zoe and Stephen have an awesome studio in the Jewellery Quarter that would make any creative envious. They can make pretty much anything from a whole array of materials. They were great to work with, check out their video!
Here are another couple of short pieces I made about people who make things around Birmingham.
AquaJet Profiles cut “Everything, except for toughened glass” with water supercharged to 60,000psi
Birmingham Specialist Glass make/restore/sell stained glass products.
My friend Curt and I went on a 600 mile round trip to Cornwall for 1 night! We went for a surf, met up with some friends and had a great time!
This is Microadventure #1. Hopefully there will be many more to come.
