I should be ashamed of myself for not posting anything for so long, I wish I had a good excuse but I haven’t really other than my interests in other things have been taking up more of my time recently. That’s not to say that I haven’t been busy on the film making front though, I’ve been busy working shooting various projects over the last few months including my usual work for Harley-Davidson. It’s been a huge year for Harley as 2013 has seen them celebrating 110 years of Harley-Davidson and 30 years of the Harley Owners Group.
I guess the main reason why the blog has suffered is that I’ve been spending most of my free time playing guitar and getting involved in music projects. I play in a band called Liberty Gene which due to some recent line-up changes has taken up a lot of my time with getting back up to the level where we can perform shows. That’s not to say that I’m no longer interested in the video side of things though, it is after all my bread and butter.
Anyway, after treating the blog so badly for the last few months I’m going to make a real effort to dedicate more time to it again. To start things rolling here’s a video that I produced for the Harley-Davidson Euro Festival back in May. This was the first event I took the Kessler Pocket Jib Traveller too and as you can see in the video it was used way too much but that’s with new toys!
The most challenging shot was one shown at the end of the video as I carried the jib along with my miller tripod and C100 through a crowd of thousands on the beach watching Status Quo perform. It was dark by that point too so I had to use the light on my iPhone to see the camera but I think the results were worth it.
I’ll post more info about my experiences with the pocket jib and the rest of my kit along with a few other stories from my travels over the coming days.
