The Lancaster at 80

I'm super stoked to announce that the production I shot over the summer is airing on Saturday 23rd October on Channel 4 TV here in the UK at 7PM. This was a whirlwind of a production - from pre-production thru post in around 11 weeks - from finding the story and filming the interviewees to archive to edit and graphics - this was a big undertaking and at times pretty overwhelming in hitting the deadlines - a lot different to […]

A7SIII – New ‘B’ Cam is an ‘A’ Cam

In the past when I've had a two cam shoot, usually a talking head, I either bring in an extra hand or I hire in an A7S2 or FS7 when need be. I have never in the past liked doing this as there have been too many issues to go wrong - specifically focus when the subject moves their chair and your DOF is really narrow the whole shot can be ruined.
