Taking a break from Filming

For this Television shoot we filmed the 2018 Wimborne Folk Festival over two d

ays, using my trusted Canon C300 MK1 and now relatively ancient Canon 60D, operated by my goto camera person Listya, who knows this camera and my preferred style of filming from us working on so many film projects together.

I also got to use my newly acquired Aputure LED lighting for the scenes shot in the restaurants kitchen. These new lights a vast improvement over the Red Heads I used to have. Battery powered and CRI 95+ (Colour Rating Index) rated, which means they are daylight rated, they were perfect for indoor use in a limited space and independent of power sockets, meant they could be positioned in just the right location without compromise of being near a power source or limitations of using cable extensions and their associated risk assessments.

As usual I’ve enough footage to create several film edits but as this is destined for Television the required length is around 20 minutes including credits to allow for advertising during its 30 minute slot. I might create a standalone edit of just the festival fro promotional purposes by Wimborne B.I.D if I have the time.

The film is currently in post production, which I am editing on my recently updated MacBook Pro running the latest version of Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC. There’s several updates to the latest versions which includes some very interesting title creation tools, which I may include in creating the final version of this edit. Watch out for my blog entry on this.

There’s already plans to create the followup episode to be filmed in Indonesia at the end of the year with support from the Indonesian Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
