TEDxUniversityofBolton

After a solid 2 months of preparation, TEDxUniversityofBolton was held in March 2016, ran by our own University students and supported by the Student Union. I was the Video Director and Videographer, which was an amazing experience in itself. The team were fantastic to work with and I learnt so much while doing it! This was the first TEDxUniversityofBolton and hopefully it'll be back in the future, with a new set of students to run it.
Here is one of the videos that has made it onto the TEDx channel.


Business Rocks 2016 #BR2016

Last week I was invited to film at a business convention in Manchester called Business Rocks. My team were the camera-crew who filmed as well as ran the livestream of the mainstage that day. We had speakers come from parts in the UK to across the pond in America, such as Brian Fanzo, Steve Wozniak and Jeff Hoffman.

Here is the video which is from the livestream that is on the Business Rocks YouTube channel. I found this one particularly inspiring!

Filming for a friend...

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted but I have been exceptionally busy with University work and also spending a long time in the USA!

Around May, when I was in the midst of University work, my friend Emilie asked me to help her film a quick video. This was one of the simplest videos I have filmed and took the shortest amount of time to film, but was one of my favourites.

Take a look:

Staff Room Series One!


Staff Room Series One!

I worked on a Sit Com earlier this year. It was my first experience of being on a proper set and was one of the most amazing weeks I have experienced! I learnt so much being the clapper loader of the crew and I was also the still photographer for all the behind the scenes footage. The cast were fantastic and every minute working here felt like I was witnessing the next big thing. 

Staff Room is released TODAY on Wildseed Studio's Comedy Channel as well as Comedy Central on the 17th of November. Links are below so check them out and don't forget to share it about :)


Note: Ryan McDermott and Adam Brown are absolute legends who have worked so freaking hard on Staff Room and they also star in it too! Never mind writing, producing and Ryan directing it too...that takes some serious multitasking and hard work!
Here's a few promotional stills as well as some pictures on set which were taken during filming.

For some reason I found myself photobombing everyone watching a edited section of Staff Room- it was hilarious as you can see.
This was probably one of the few images of me on set- because I was always behind the camera!



A still of the fourth episode, "The Trust Fall."



Don't forget you can watch the first season RIGHT NOW!

The Rebellion

As you may know, I am the Camera Operator for Rebel Bass Productions, which is a company we set up in the first year of University :)
Today we did some filming for a promo. The Promo will be up here once it is edited, but here are a few stills I took today from the filming, enjoy.

Flowers and a major soft spot for ducklings

I went to Shrewsbury today and took my camera along.
Lots of statues

Even more flowers

Even flowers shaped like animals

But what's even better? Real life animals (I turned into one of those people from the McVities adverts)

I do have more photos but if I showed you all of them you'd fall asleep (I hope not but hey)

I want a duckling.
Someone get me one and I can have a mini army of cute animals.
Then I'd take pictures and put it on my blog.
Until next time :)

Kazo

So a few months back, I found myself in Manchester with my camera and my Rebel Bass Productions crew. We were given an awesome offer to shoot a promo video for this band called KAZO. They wanted something similar to Race Against the Machine, so in the edit the cuts are choppy (very cool terminology), so this is the final result, which was finally released today! 

Hopefully we did it justice, and I hope you enjoy it :)
