APPLE FIGHT

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.

Wagon arrives at Whitwell Station

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!

Luke and David looking good.

My new gadget went to good use!

Frame from the Studio Scene

‘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!

New Website Online!

I’ve finally completed the new website – check it out! I’ve tried to make it as visually appealing as possible, giving clear links to all my content including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and my blog. I’ve also made it easier for myself in the sense of adding films and editing the site in general.

There are a few glitches with the site with some browsers. So far I know of problems with Firefox and Internet Explorer, but it all works fine in Safari and Chrome…as far as I know. I know that black boxes appear around linked images, I know what it is but I have no idea how to get rid of it. It’s not too much of a problem because I don’t think it completely ruins the look of the site. I’m afraid I’m still relatively new to Dreamweaver.  If you find any other glitches, please email me.

But please, go check it out!

Bend it like Beckham

Yeah…I’m brilliant at football…

I haven’t uploaded this to my main channel because its not that good. Its not exciting enough! If you haven’t guessed already, its fake. I did it in After Effects by merging two elements together and making the ball change course. I recorded me kicking the ball normally and where I want the ball to hit/land, then I masked out the ball, made it curl and line up with the ball landing while covering up the original ball. It came out quite nicely. However, I had some problems when recording the footage from the camcorder on to the computer. You can see it in the video, it’s a bit jumpy. I don’t know why so I’ll have to do some tests. It might be because I converted it from 25 to 24 frames per seconds.

Its only test really for a video I had in mind.

See the raw footage here:

TVR Sagaris in our Drive Way!

I was playing FIFA online yesterday, to have my brother walk in and tell me to ‘take a look at this Sagaris outside!’ You’d think I’d run out there immediately…I finished my game first.

So its a TVR, hand made British cars from Blackpool. Lightweight and fast. My brother actually owns a TVR S3, but this Sagaris was the last model TVR made before they shut down in 2006. Its owned by a fellow TVR lover, and its in two colours. Its pearlescent. As you move around the car it’s colour changes – amazing. Apparently £1500 a litre for the paint!

Heres some photos:

He started it up (oh my) and reversed it down the drive (unfortunately) but we saw and heard him speed away at the entrance. Heres a video:

Beautiful.
