I usually take my video camera on family videos and simply film what’s in front of me. The last family holiday I did a bit of planning before and after to see if I could make it into a short film. The weather was incredibly wet so I went out and filmed shots of the rain falling off the cottage roof and looked to take footage that portrayed a wet family holiday. We made a short stop animation film and I recorded the local weather report. Music that we listened while on holiday made a good soundtrack.
Well, I am sitting in an airport waiting for a full on family holiday to Australia. Three cameras at the ready Canon DSLR for general video, Sony camcorder for on the move and a GoPro for underwater and other extreme footage. I’ve got 2 songs that I thought would well “Time of our lives” and “Down Under” and will see what other songs inspire me while filming.
