One Minute at Christmas Shoot Breakdown

Posted on at


So last week I filmed my MA project, coming soon in next blog, and a Christmas Video, One Minute at Christmas, that tested the Revolve Camera Dolly.

Firstly we created a set from a christmas tree and a suitcase full of props as seen below.

The set designer, Stephani, see below, worked her magic on set. 

The finished set

Once the set had been completed then the fun with the dolly begun and a multitude of shots were being experimented with.


The dolly in action with Swit monitor attached.

Overall it was an extremely fun shoot, the footage is looking very good and it should be out by the end of the week, editing permitting.

I would like to thank my students in Level 5 who worked on the crew and I hope they learnt a lot from the festive experience.

Thanks, Joe, Dom, Stephani, Michael, Gemma and Daniel Hopkins for lending the camera.

Hope everyone is starting to feel festive,

Tom :)
