Weather and Video

Just a quick word on the conditions we are having this summer on the south coast of England. The hot summer is producing some very interesting light for video.

We have experienced bright sun and very warm conditions to dark moody clouds with lightening storms. If you haven’t been out with your camera yet now is a good time as its far from flat grey light out there…

Good luck and get creative!

Adlestrop

I heard this poem on the radio this morning, it was written at the same time of year and as I write the summer sun is streaming through the window:

Adlestrop by Edward Thomas

It really evokes the scene of an unwanted train halt on a mid summer’s day. Apparently he was on his way to visit fellow poet Robert Frost, it’s particularly moving as Thomas died at the battle of Arras in 1917.

I adapted one of Frost’s poems for my Alberic’s Scrapbook video project:

Acquainted with the Night

I like the feel of Thomas’s Adlestrop poem and I’d like to include it in my current poem video project.

New Poem Videos

I’m working on the story boards for my latest video poem project, I’ve selected three further poems to create short video pieces with.

They’re quite a contrast being written by Ted Hughes, Dylan Thomas and Rudyard Kipling! But its more about the mood of the individual videos and they won’t need to relate to each other.

I’ll post up more on here once I have the shoots under way.

New Video Locations

I’m looking at some more locations to continue my latest video project. I’ve seen some interesting locations including a large derelict factory to shoot some video in. This will be for a continuation of my series of poems to video which result in short adaptations featuring actors which depict the poem.

I’m also very keen to shoot more M R James ghost stories similar to my Canon Alberic’s Scrapbook video which I completed last year. Here is latest poem video which featured in the Sequenced Art Show and was film on the rainy streets (last month) of Sussex.

Sequenced Art Show Opens

The Sequenced Art Show opened last night with our private view, it was a good turn out with lots of friends attending and a good time was had by all! My Alberic’s Scrapbook video looked great on the screen!

The show came together really well in the end and its a nice mix of digital art work. The exhibition runs until the 12th March to view the work in the gallery at the Brighton Media Centre in Middle St, Brighton.

Its free and in central Brighton so go and see it if your around.

Video Edits

Just working on one of the video pieces for the show which opens in a couple of weeks, I love working through the footage and pulling the piece together.

Its also a very creative process and working with the poem voice over sound track makes me look at the footage in a different way.

I’ll upload to vimeo when I have an edit and post the link on this website.

Raining Again

Damn, raining again, I’ve been trying to shoot some video with a street cleaner for my latest video project. The only trouble is that its been raining in the early morning most days I can shoot.

I really want early morning light for this one so hopefully we can shoot this piece and get this part of my video project moving!

Audio Edits

I’m revisiting a video piece that I created a while ago. The sound needs a re-work so I’m exporting the files from Premier to Adobe Audition to clean the sound up a bit.

Sound is a commonly overlooked part of the video production process and investing in some good quality sound capturing equipment is something that is worth doing.

I’ll post up the link on here once I have uploaded the finished video.

10,000 Cents

I saw this a while ago but it has stayed with me as a fantastic example of online digital art. Each participant was given an unrelated rectangle in which they would copy a fragment of the whole art work using a simple custom built paint app.

They all came together to produce this: 10,000 Cents

I love the concept, its good stuff!
