It's truly going to be a hectic few weeks ahead for me!
Having just shot a promotional video for a client called STX, I am now moving on to shooting yet another promo for a newly opened 5 star restaurant this weekend in North Wales! as well this I recently returned from a meeting to produce a specific 'music video' for a client within the coming weeks, with the collective help of some incredibly talented filmmakers.
But it really doesn't end there..
On the following Monday I travel back to Stoke to kick off shoot week on my course by directing my short-drama finally! crew & cast are hopefully as ready as they'll ever be, however the same can't be said for myself!
From there I am actually DOP'ing on at least 6 other short-film productions, however here's where it gets exciting!
Starting on Thursday the 14th I am travelling down to London to help pick up equipment for a shoot I have been hired for in Anglesey, North Wales. In fact I'm fulfilling a dream on this shoot because I will be camera assisting for an 'Arri Alexa' a truly incredible digital cinematography camera currently used within both the Television & Film industry. A camera that until now, I was sure I would never even get "close" to!
I have really begun to exceed my own expectations this year; and am moving towards my intended goal, which was to expand my work range and really begin to establish myself as a freelance video producer, whilst still at uni!
It goes without saying that I'd kill for a good nights sleep right about now..,but there's a lot of work yet to be done so that can wait till Christmas surely!
I'm really eager to share these experiences as I accomplish them, so watch this space for future posts!
