New Video: St Luke’s Trip to London – 11 September 2011

Back in August, during the school summer holidays, St Luke’s enjoyed a trip to London, where participants explored the British Library, stood for a photograph under Paul Day’s famous The Meeting Place sculpture at St Pancras International, and took a tour of St Paul’s Cathedral from the man who designed it, Sir Christopher Wren. I’ve just finished editing the video from that trip (don’t worry, I haven’t been working on it solidly since the summer), and it’s now available to view online by clicking here.

SACRE Film Festival – 7 July 2010

This is the video that was shown at the Film Festival on Wednesday night.

Regular readers will remember when I wrote with my thoughts on ABSstudios’ latest production; a short for the SACRE Film Festival to be held this evening (7 July 2010).

Compared and presented by Mike Gammage, each school was invited to introduce their film, and then all of us in the audience would watch.

The rules of the competition; the film must not be in excess of ten minutes in length, it should try not to use excessive amounts of out-of-school equipment, and the film must be themed around ‘Religion and Science: competing or complimentary?’.

ticketWhile most (if not all) of the equipment and editing was my own, conducted at ABSstudios; I didn’t feel too bad, as I am ABSstudios, and without me, I doubt the film would have happened.

Following the screening, we were given feedback and a certificate which was great; giving me recognition for my work from an outsider of the Burdett family.

“You used a good range of shots; ‘over-the-shoulder’s, ‘noddy’s, and these were complimented with a good range of musical ‘beds’ and graphics on-screen. Thank you.”

– Michael Story, SACRE Film Festival 2010, 7 July 2010

It was a good evening, but – as I said on my Monday night/Tuesday morning blog – I’m glad to see the back of this film, which has been really hard work.

My thanks, of course though, to Mr Boniface for organising and co-writing the film. Thanks.

‘I Wish I Was James Bond’ Music Video Complete – 22 May 2010

DSCF5852 This morning, in my ‘private editing suite’, I completed what I believe is a masterpiece. Regular readers will remember Monday’s blog, when I started work on a music video for ICT. Well, today, I completed editing it. A few hours in the edit taught me several new skills in the software I use, along with making a fun bit of film.

I said earlier that it was ‘a masterpiece’. But I think what really made the video is its real sense of fun and pantomime. And that sense of fun came not from me individually, but my loyal and wonderful friends. It would not have been possible without their dedication, ideas, and hard work. Who says work can’t be fun?!

I’ll post a link to the video on YouTube on a blog in the coming days. It’s currently only been shown to my parents, as I want to keep it for everyone who was in it to enjoy first.
