1. Very interesting idea here - teaching children about money. Rightly, it doesn't lay into banking or anything/give opinions but more just teaches what banks (are supposed to) do.

    Filmed, cut and edited in about 16hrs so didn't really have time to put in a lot more quotes in a coherent order. Also would have liked to have done some light cartoon style animation with the titles but again time.

    Now realise the GH2 has a strange aberration at ISO 12800, I was getting some strange moving bands which I'm a little upset about.

  2. Visit Hackney, come for the markets; stay for the lovely, lovely meat.

    First go at filming outside: negotiating ND filters and changing light is H.A.R.D. Definitely more practice needed and perhaps a monitor. And about £2000.

    A bit shakey camera-y let's say I meant to do it but it is showing that a rig would be very useful as I don't particularly like monopods/tripods.

    Thanks to everyone involved, and sorry for those who were edited out. It was due to time constraints rather than you yourself, you were great.

    Special thanks to Ian for all the fantastic cheese he sold to me. If I die of a heart attack, I regret nothing and I'll make sure my will promises that the family won't sue.

  3. Here's a promo video for a dance marathon about to take place in east London - and my second proper attempt at 'run and gun'.

    Bought a Rode VideoMic, which rules, will now get a H1 and lav to complement it.

    Switched lenses at one point to get more close ups and immediately realised that the 14-140mm is a guff, ugly lens, will sell and replace with primes asap. Also any tips on colour balancing between cameras and lens will be welcome as I'm really not happy with a couple of shots but don't know how to fix it.

    Hat off to everyone involved, it was bitterly cold on filming. Plus special thanks go to Alex who had been dancing and promoting for about 14hrs from 5am (but a smile never left her face).

  4. This is my first proper video; it's for a website promoting events in Hackney, London, that I work on.

    I've learnt the hard way the importance of a proper mic (hello? hello? echo, echo, echo + hisssssssssss), and a Rode Videomic Pro is on its way. Also this will be the LAST time I narrate. Ever. Instead there's a chap at work with 'a face for radio' (his words) who will provide his perfect presenting voice.

    Shot on Panasonic GH2 with kit 14-140mm lens. Edited in Final Cut 7.
