Carve Up

lowe_carve-mk

Shooting some test footage today at Hoddesdon’s, Lowewood Museum for our new short film: Absolutely. I got a little distracted by a fabulous stone carving workshop that was taking place in the grounds of the museum led by stone carver Simon Keeley MA – Stone Carver & Sculptor who isn’t featured in the photo.
One of the great things about working with proactive museums is they’re always trying something new and engaging with not only with their regular loyal audience but also reaching out to build an even more inclusive audience.

Heads up for the Donkey

Well John’s donkey has certainly grown. It is amazing to see the size and scale of the work.  We’ve been busy working on our John W. Mills film as well as some other projects that are now in post. And isn’t it incredible that those blue skies only ever appear when you’re in the edit suite.

Of course when we start filming that moody noir it won’t be rainy or tremendously dark. jmw_st_d2_s29

Have Camera Will Travel…

We had a really busy week last week working with a wide range of artists for some future projects. One day in sunny Harlow, and the next in rural Hertfordshire and then off down the A2 to film in an artist’s studio in Peckham. Hope the weather brightens up this week as we’re filming at the The Summer of Arts in Harlow. Always a lot going on in that part of Essex. At the moment the Gibberd Gallery has work from all over Essex as part of their Essex Collections Exhibition.

London Bronzes

I was filming  two of John W. Mills sculptures in London last week. Both are in very central locations and attract a lot of attention from people passing by. People cross the Millennium bridge from the Tate and come across such a powerful representation of those in the Fire Service who have been killed on duty. The Women of World War II is in Whitehall and is near the Cenotaph. It stands tall and proud as the traffic and tourists pass by.

If you haven’t seen them or even if you have they’re both fantastic pieces of work and well worth visiting.

Three Cheers, a round of applause and a clap for the Clapperboard

I’m still hanging on to our clapper board, which I bought at Stanley Productions in Wardour Street. They’ve apparently moved to Fitzrovia. Something special happens as soon as you pick up the clapperboard. It’s as if you’re transported back to some film or any film in the past. It might be one of your favourites or it might be one where you think other things should have been done. But at any rate the clapper has history. It’s still hanging on against apps, digital methods and Plural Eyes.

And I suppose that the convenience of Plural Eyes will push it now that more and more are using multiple cameras for shoots, as they’ve become increasingly more affordable. Sure makes sync all that B roll  a lot quicker.

These were from last week when we were filming at the Gibberd Gallery with artist and volunteer, Jim Montgomery, Gibberd Gallery Technical Development Manager Hannah Lee, and the Gibberd Gallery’s newest volunteer Lolita Clark.
