Silent Disco Promo

A Silent Disco is a new and unique concept sweeping the UK that does away with the traditional speaker systems used in nightclubs or festivals and instead issues visitors with wireless headphones that allow the wearer to choose to listen to one of two live DJ ‘s performing at the event.

SilentArena, the UK ‘s premier Silent Disco providers, asked me to shoot a Silent Disco that was held at the University of East Anglia ‘s LCR on the 19th February.

I used my EX1 on a multi-rig pro to allow me to be mobile and mingle with the crowds. Because all of the visitors were wearing headphones I was able to transmit the music from one of the DJ’s to the camera wirelessly as well as use a shotgun mic to record people singing along to the music on a separate channel.

I hired a Sony on camera LED light to give some fill for the dark scenes, because the light is able to be adjusted in brightness it allowed me to get just enough light onto the crowd without making them look out of place in the dark surroundings.

New video – “Winter Garden”

I’ve been shooting random clips in and around our garden over the last week and thought that I’d throw this together tonight rather than wasting them.

new video – “Small Things”

I’ve been on the lookout for a macro lens for a while now and earlier this week I managed to pick up a Micro-Nikkor 55mm f2.8 from ebay for £48… bargain! Along with the lens I also purchased a Nikon PK-13 extension tube which is designed to be used with this lens and doubles the magnification.

New video – “Kites”

Filmed at Hunstanton beach on the north Norfolk coast on the 15th November 2008. Once again I only took my camera and glidetrack which I’m finding is a great way of filming.

Morston Mud

I’m not sure why I woke up at 6am on the morning of the 29th October 2008, but I’m glad I did. The sun wasn’t even close to rising but what little light there was had that magic feeling about it, it was going to be one of those colourful mornings ideal for filming.
