We had a fantastic evening filming at Hertfordshire’s Lowewood Museum. We were filming for their new short film “Absolutely” . One of the great things about the Hoddesdon based museum is they not only make you welcome but also make every visit fun.

Long Live the Video Store

Continuing on from the blast from the past theme. (For those who don’t know)Yes, it’s a video rental store. I saw this yesterday in a small seaside town in Kent, Broadstairs. So rare now. 

There was always something about looking at the covers and making your choices. On Demand is great but there was something tactile even personal about video/DVD stores. Those boxes on the shelf when I was kid like Assault on Precinct 13, Matewan , Scarface, or The Deerhunter were a great start on the way to film and filmmaking. 

It’s amazing how early choices can have so much of an impact on life and career.

Long live the Video store and let’s not even talk about the bookstore.

Caution

“I knew we should have hired that location scout. Now where did our camera operator go? Always last to show up, and first to slope off.”
There’s something to be said for getting the right person for the right job as there is for the right company for the right job.
