A busy 2 months of filming and editing

From a quiet start to 2013 of only one short film of a trip to Twickenham saw a busy March and April which has led to 11 films of varying lengths and topics, some uploaded to YouTube:

Edinburgh – a work trip to the lovely city of Edinburgh took me and my camera into the city centre on a cold March evening for a simple 1 minute edit.

Garden Birds – a 5 minute film using my new GH2 with a couple of Canon lenses on tripods. Edited to Colplay’s Paradise. Some lovely close ups of the amazing Finch family birds (Siskin and Gold Finch) plus a cheeky Blue Tit. watch on YouTube

School production – I filmed and edited the 60 minute school end of term production. 20 copies have been sold with proceeds going to the school PTA funds.

Stagecoach production – a behind closed doors 90 minute end of term production filmed and edited. Only a copy to the the teachers has been distributed – parent copies to follow.
