My Nissan Micra overtakes a BMW!
The exterior car shots were shot with a HD Bullet Camera from Dogcam Sport but I dubbed over the sound.
Bought a Dogcam Sport HD bullet camera which is an awesome little thing that shoots at 720p. Of cause there are better bullet cameras but this is pretty good for such a small size, and I stuck to my brother’s car for a little test video. Maybe in the future I could use it in a film. Perhaps in a S.A.S raid?
The UK Riots of 2011 have reached the Isle of Wight – Whitwell has unleashed Apple HELL.
I had a load of friends and family over for a BBQ one Sunday afternoon and we ended up having the most epic apple fight ever with crab/cooking apples. The objective is simply to hit the other opponent and we protect ourselves with bats and planks of wood etc. Its a lot of fun.
I decided to film it for fun. Then I thought I’d edit it together and I ended up with an epic film!
The song is called ‘Escape’ by Craig Armstrong.
I made a video for my parents business about the delivery of an old, vintage train wagon at our house. Its basically decoration for it and the self catering business.
My parents run a self catering holiday accommodation business at the house, which is an old Railway Station. The waiting room and ticket office were converted into two cottages nearly 20 years ago, while we live in the Station Master part of the house.
The new wagon adds to feel of the unique holiday location, and this video will be an help in the advertisement.

‘Wight News’ will be a comedy news sketch set where we live on the Isle of Wight. We’ve been working on the studio scenes, which are done and look pretty good. Only 2 more main scenes now have to be done now – the weather and the sports which I’m in! There will be little mini scenes as well that will be used as footage for the news headlines.
For the studio scenes, I had Luke and David sitting at their anchor desk with their ‘papers’ and laptops, with the Rode Stereo Videomic above them on a stand connected to a portable audio device. This mean’t I needed the clapperboard so I could sync the footage with the audio. The scene was lit by two halogen lights on separate stands pointed up on to the ceiling. The ceiling acted as a deflector and gave a nice soft light on to the ‘anchormen’.
We filmed over 1 and a half hours worth of footage for only 5 mins worth of scenes!
