My first blog post!Posted: March 27, 2011
Being new to the world of writing blogs, this seems slightly daunting and yet strangely familiar. Nevertheless, this blog is a way for me to get myself noticed and (fingers crossed) get out of retail (my current occupation), once and for all.
Thanks to the lovely Emily King, I’ve managed to build this WordPress blog in order to do just that.
So first, let me tell you about the projects I’ve worked on specifically with Habitual Films:
Consolidating: The story of one man’s search for love using speed dating.
Boytoy Beta: A woman’s struggle with technology.
Unlocked: Trying to escape a house of puzzles.
Consolidating and Boytoy Beta were made when I was at University, while Unlocked was afterwards.
Without University resources, it’s slightly more difficult to make really good looking films, but it’s something I will overcome.
The equipment we have to film with currently is:
- HG10 Cannon camera
- Hague motion stabiliser (handicam)
- Rode Mic
- XLR cables
- Boom pole
- Lighting equipment
- Light meter
- AVID Media Composer 5 (along with the production suite – Boris Continuum Complete 6, , AVID DVD, Sorenson Squeeze and Sonic Fire)
- Pro Tools Essentials 8 and Midi Keyboard.
- Hauppage HD-PVR
- Panasonic AG-HMC41,
- Edirol R-44 portable field recorder,
- 3 x 3.5 meter Chroma keycurtain
- 3 x 3.12 meter background stand.
