USMM Promo Film

This was another great project I have been fortunate enough to work on recently. A Ministry Training school in Manchester wanted a film to help promote it’s course. On asking me, this is what I came up with…

The process

The idea came from conversations with the principle of the school and after the interviews, I filmed with a number of past and present students. Filming the interviews was great fun and totally worth it. I filmed with I think 9 or 10 people each for around 5/6 minutes with a number of questions. Although I only used tiny segments of what they said, having longer filming with them is crucial. It’s important so that people felt comfortable, to be honest, and genuine in front of the camera.

The film was edited as usual in FCPX, the titles were mainly done in Motion 5. The shots at the beginning are filmed by me on the Zhiyun Crane M with the G7.

 


His Presence 2017 Conference – London

This was one of the longest events I have been on in a while. It was loads of fun and loads of work. I was tasked with capturing all the sessions from the day. Along with this, I was also taking photos. I was filming from three angles by myself, which is harder than it sounds. With cameras needing to be checked every half hour, and speakers moving all over the place it’s not a perfect situation, but I can happily say that I pulled it off.

The filming of the conference

With the three angles, one was centre straight at the speaker, and one to the right. The third was set behind the speaking getting a nice wide shot of the room along with the side of the speaker – definitely one of my favourite shots. The full sessions are now on Youtube, I have attached one below, along with the highlights film from the day.
