How pure the shot?


Fun shoot last week - working on a promo for Aurora Orchestra and their latest concert "How Pure The Sky" with countertenor Iestyn Davies.

The theme of the concert is all things celestial - so we needed a visual way to convey this idea of getting into the heavens, and contemplating our place under them...  Our solution was to employ a great bit of kit - the Sky Moth.

The film below is a little behind the scenes clip showing how we got the signature shot we were after - which wasn't easy as the weather was definitely against us - which made for a dramatic sky backdrop, but also made operating the Skymoth a bit tricky...

Thanks go to Dan and Michael from Skyvue for their efforts in such unfavorable weather and BIG thanks to Iestyn for agreeing to lie down in a wet, muddy field in the rain...

...and here is the full trailer for anyone wanting details about the concert:

Berlin Bound

Paul and I have just returned from a super-quick shoot in Berlin.  We were covering a conference and creating some film content with a quick turnaround edit.  All good stuff.  Most impressive though - speaking as tech geeks - was the AV set up at the conference itself.

we've covered a lot of conferences in the past - but this one was just brimming with technology - to be fair, there was quite a large room to cover...

each attendee had their own iPad to interact with the presenters, ask questions, vote on topics etc - very, very smart.

Is there such a condition as "tech-envy"?
