This is the third film I have produced for the Busoga Trust following the story of the Trust’s Development Manager, Rob Waugh. This film follows Rob as he revisits some of the wells built in 2003, to see if they were still working and to reflect on the development of the Trust over the years.
I had been waiting for the right project to use the track ‘Spirit’ by Tony Anderson. This guy’s music works so well for the type of films I make as many of his songs have lots of points to edit to. I also wanted to make good use of background noise, like the opening scene of the girl working the pump and the sound of the old landrover hurtling along the road. As I had limited space to carry all my kit, instead of recording sound separately I recorded straight into the 5d Mk3 and monitored via the headphone jack. With the audio level really low in camera and boosting the output level on the Sennheiser G3 this allowed me to get nice clean audio in a really compact setup.
This was first job where I properly used the Glidecam, such an awesome piece of kit when you get the hang of it. Shooting in 50p and slowing it down worked really well.
