I recently helped out on a little music promo and stretched my legs on a bit of video filming and editing. I was very excited to be able to use the video capture on my new camera as I’d never shot video on an SLR before. Back in my uni days when I did do a spot of video editing that would’ve seemed like witchcraft.
The promo was for the musical duo, Bird and Cook and was a joint project between the folks at Loft&Print (Neil Leonard and Jill Adams) – a new, Bournemouth co-working space which we’re excited to be moving into very soon!
We had about an hour and a half window to shoot this promo at the very charismatic Shelley Theatre in Boscombe. We tried our best to get fancy with various takes and camera angles. Afterwards, during pack up Martin and Alex asked me if I’d take a couple of shots of them and the stage set-up.
Off the back of this we’re all very pleased Bird and Cook have got a regular Tuesday slot at Kino Lounge in Bournemouth Square. So, if you’re in town and fancy a cocktail, pizza and a chance to be crooned at by Martin and Alex, head on down there!
Here’s a bit of Popsox to see you on your way. I can’t get this out of my head!:
