A family day out to Warwick Castle for the Halloween events gave me another opportunity to make a short film of the proceedings and upload to YouTube. We had previously been to Warwick Castle for Halloween 2 years ago and had enjoyed the Haunted Hallows (a walled walkway dressed up with Pumpkins, ghouls and graves). The light was fantastic and 3 trips through the Haunted Hallows gave me lots of great footage, plus some footage from the play park and wondering around the castle grounds. I filmed it on my Canon 550D with 50mm, 20mm and 8mm prime lenses.
I looked for some eerie music and decided 80s indie man Momus fitted well (music of my youth!). At least YouTube shouldn’t exclude it from mobile devices.
It took about 3 hours to edit which I did the same evening as the day out and the next day I uploaded to YouTube (the fastest time from filming to final edit).
