Stand Up (For the Love) – MacMillan Music Video

Screen Shot 2013-03-01 at 09.03.00

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by my good friend Shaun to help film a music video for MacMillan Cancer Research. 

Shauns Message “Myself and Lauren have our reasons for wanting to raise money for cancer support, and I’m sure many of you have yours too. So help us raise as much money as possible for MacMillan, who do some really great things for people struck with the news that they, or someone close to them, has cancer.

(Original Fundraising Idea video)

‘Stand Up (For The Love)’ – Covered by Shaun Reynolds & Lauren Verrier (Originally by Jessie J)

This was an enjoyable, intensely planned shoot; already receiving some fantastic exposure through the power of social networking and word of mouth. Fundraising is amazing because it feels good to make a difference as a united community. To donate, download the song via the iTunes page or the Just Giving page (Add Gift Aid if it applies!) – All proceeds go to MacMillan Cancer Support.

Below is the behind the scenes video, giving you a sense of how much effort was put into this project!

2012 Camera Operator/Editor Showreel

After months of collating footage, editing, reediting well over 10 drafts, it’s finally here! It still needs a bit of tweaking (end title sequence) but other than that, its 99.97% done.

I’ve also uploaded it to YouTube, so the YouTubers can ‘like’ & ‘comment’ etc

Footage featured in the showreel and alongside, my project role(s):

The videos music was produced by the Electro-Swing guru Captain Flatcap,

Track – ‘Funky Farmers’

As mentioned in my previous blog Showreel Update, 2013 is already shaping up to be a good year! This week I shot a charity music video for Macmillan Cancer Research with Shaun Reynolds & Lauren Verrier - new blog on that video - Stand Up for the Love - will be released after the video is live (late Feb 2013) and I have a list of other shoots that will be working on. I’m in the latter stages of creating a Timelapse showreel, since I now have substantial footage; I’m aiming to release this in March.

All collaborations are welcomed with warm open arms!

Cheers!

Showreel Update

Righty so my showreel is on the verge of completion. Its taken ages to finalise the right clips to use and i’ve had to leave out some lovely footage but hey ho, it can’t be too long and needs to be diverse.

Footage featured in the showreel and alongside, the role(s) I took on:

The music was produced by the Electro-Swing guru Captain Flatcap, track – ‘Funky Farmers’

All thats left is to complete the title sequence using blender, which has been both an experience and a challenge having never really worked with 3D animation before. Here’s a little preview of what I’ve conjured up:

Blender Titles Test

I’ve so far got the (very enjoyable) camera movements down, but I’m having some issues with  shadows and lighting, so its a bit of a trial and error project. I’ll do some more research and try to sort it as soon as I can and then add it to my showreel. I’m confident in stating that it WILL be up this Feb, hopefully in the next couple of weeks if all goes well!

2013 is starting to get very busy too. Collaborations and talks of a documentary which I can’t wait for, promo videos for a handful of other artists (mainly music), sketches to be filmed, a couple of wedding videos, lots of graphic design, a few claymations written and ready and also finalising my zombie short film sketch before I get tired of it, fingers crossed for everything!
