  2. Please read my blog post: gopb.co/dad

    Long planned but seemingly never able to do for various reasons (which I go into on my blog post) about my beloved dad, Arnie Bloom. The most important man in my life and of course to whom I owe my existence to (it's your fault dad!!)

    Making a film about a loved one whilst you can must rank as one of the most important things one can do as a filmmaker. I have countless photos of dad and there are quite a few clips of video of him to when I have used him for video reviews etc but never have I actually gotten him talking on camera about who he is.

    Sadly I still don't have children, maybe one day, but at least my sister does and although they know him very well, inevitably one day he will be just a memory/ photos on Facebook (or whatever is around then) to them.

    I want them to be able to watch this long after he is gone and remember who their grandfather was and then to show their own children. I would give anything to have done this for my grandparents whilst they were alive but it wasn't something I ever thought about. It would be amazing to hear my great grandparents words telling me their stories as I never knew them.

    After all documentaries are exactly what the words implies. To document something, and this film is to have a historical record of my father for future generations to see and of course for me to remember him after he has gone to the great golf course in the sky.

    Please visit my blog post for more on this film, how I approached the subject, how I dealt with certain topics and decisions I made both in the what I used and didn't use plus what I used to help tell the story. Naturally a full explanation of the gear used, lights, tripod, sound, cameras and especially the use of the Kessler "Second Shooter" for the unmanned moving B-Camera.

    Sony F55, Sony A7s with Atomos Shogun. Shot in 4K, edited in 4K. Uploaded in HD for now...4K version once I am happy this version of the film is finished as there are a few minor tweaks and some photos I still want to add! (Thank you Vimeo for letting me replace videos)
