Not a request to critique my work as such, but I couldn't see a more appropriate place to show this. I recently had my late father's old standard 8 films scanned. Mostly they were all normal home movie stuff such as holidays, family events etc., but I found this clip which is a short sketch he made with my brother & sister and the kids from the family next door. (I wasn't around then!) The film dates from around 1963. Although very simple, I was really impressed with how well filmed it is bearing in mind the era it is from. I realise a may be somewhat biased in this view! I hope you enjoy it, a slice of 1960s England. https://vimeo.com/186101183
Hi guys, Been following the forum for ages but never actually managed to ask anything so here it is. I was given the opportunity to light and shoot a small online promo for a new water company about their flavoured water. The moto basically is "water with a twist". You know Children find water boring. But it’s good for them. They expect coke, sprite, orange juice, squash ... anything but Hate2O! I have never shot a commercial/promo with kids and never ever lit for a classic high key, bright white commercial look that you can find all the time when promoting a new yogurt, or food, or etc. mainly kitchen based shoots. And yeah most of our shoot will be kitchen and lounge/dinning area based. Children putting water aside, drinking it and making weird face, until they get the new "flavoured water" and boom they love it and wanna drink more, etc, etc. These are the possible locations but I still havent decided on which to choose from. http://www.locationworks.com/private.php?page=15852&location=1 On the left side you can view like 26 houses. Not sure if having huge big windows will work or not in my favour. Its winter and sunset in the UK is at 3.45pm... not sure which one to choose from yet. maybe small windows will not be ideal but having those bigger windows will work against me as well. I was planning on using book light technique for this promo. if you guys have any tips on how to best light an high key kitchen promo or have any tips from previous shoots please do shout. I want to avoid making it look flat and boring, which i know its easy to achieve when trying a high key style shoot. I wanted to make it look light and airy. Cheers for your help Pedro Lighting camera op
Hi, I will be shooting a commercial involving children playing with lego's, drinving with toy cars, buildng houses etc. Everything will be framed very tight, so I will be only focusing on the kid's hands from the wrist down and the lego itself. The size of the lego set is only about 3x4'. It basicly resembles a small city, with a gas station, houses, firestation etc. I' am trying to come up with a lighting solution, that will cover most shots, without having to re-light all the time, except when shooting some scenes that really require it. I will have a couple of lighting setups that I will have to do - mid-day, sunset, night My idea is to have a light going through duffusion (butterfly) above the lego set, that will act as a key light, which I will be diming based on the needed look and time of day. Then I was thinking of putting a rim light behind the whole set, coming from either the far left, or far right corner, and occasionally giving me a nice lens flare. Other than that, I could have a couple of dedo's pointing out certain subjects in the frame. I would appreciate any tips on making the shots look as good a possible, while also being able to shoot from as much angles as possible.
I shot my first short film "A Fistful of Feathers" with Director of Photography, Tom Hanmer, back in December and finished up post in May. Tom used his beautifully sharp Leica Zooms and his newly acquired motion mount. Amazing way to shoot. Wicked fast adjustments. .1 ND increments all day long. A great way to work on a tight schedule.
