I recorded all this footage whilst recently on holiday in Weymouth and surrounding Dorset. I only took my Canon 6D with me and thought I’d explore the 50 frames a second setting at 720. I slowed down all the clips to 25fps in post and they look bloody glorious!! I went handheld (or the occasional rock and fence to perch on) and used my Canon 24-105 f4 lens for the whole thing. Image stabilization helped and a bit of premier pro shenanigans with Warp Stabilizer. It’s an attempt to do something in the spirit of Philip Bloom, and hopefully it’s not too shabby?
The song is written and recorded by me, and comes from a collection of ideas I’ve had knocking around in my head for a while. When I wasn’t out with the camera I was sitting down playing guitar and trying to shape all these ideas into a tune. Sorry about the dodgy harmonica playing.. I must practice more.
Special Thanks to:
Duncan Eagles – Soprano Sax / Wine Glass (with just enough red wine to make a passable concert D)
Max Luthert – Double Bass
Jane Boyle – Looking grumpy and bewildered whilst I film her.
