I’m officially a graduate. That’s it – University is over. Who knows, maybe I’ll be back for a Masters…
I’ll probably still keep updating my blog on occasion. I’m now just finding my way in the job market – an exciting place.

Milk 07

by Martin on Jun.09, 2007, under Blog, Martin's Life Blog, Photography

So, the exhibition is finally now under way well untruly. It’s been lot of fun and we were on a tight schedule to set up all our booths in time as we’ve only had a day or so prior access to the room.
I finally got mine all sorted out with all my photography mounted after numerous trips to the printers and a visit to hobby craft. It’s all part of the fun.

The stencil I decided to do was a very delicate operation to cut out the letters but it’s a great effect! We have literally been able to decorate our booth in any way we see fit…so why not spray paint it?
I’ve also shown my Obsidian music video on a flat screen and left some cards – thanks for dropping by if you found my site from the exhibition.
The exhibition was a great success and has been a great opportunity for us to show the high quality work our course created.

Check out these photos I took around the exhibition.

Finished Filming

by Martin on Feb.13, 2007, under Blog, Martin's Life Blog

Finished the filming phase of my ‘client’ Obsidian now. It culminated in the live gig at the Battle of the Bands competition at Ilkeston tonight. They rocked it up!

They won the votes out of the 5 bands playing so now they are in the finals. They did an excellent performance. The song I am doing which was previously untitled is now called ‘Can’t Do This’.

I set up my two cameras and took the VX2000 at the front row and got some close ups. I have many DVs worth of footage, so now begins the long and arduous editing process. No doubt there will be problems, but I’ve tried to shoot with the edit in mind.

The event organiser spoke to me as he saw me filming, and said I could send him a copy of the vid and he’ll put it on their website. Would be good to see that.

Was a good night, good audience response, but not so packed-out that I couldn’t film. Lighting was also really good, with changing coloured effects
I’m thinking maybe I should have used the VX throughout the filming, but then I doubt John would have let me frequently take 2 or 3 of them out.

Main Filming #1

by Martin on Feb.05, 2007, under Blog, Martin's Life Blog

…well, one of the main shoots.
The next one I will do will be next Sunday hopefully, as they are using the same hall for practising. Then on the Monday is their Battle of the Bands compeiton which I’ll film as their live performance.
Today I had three cameras and I filmed the song tiwce from two angles each plus handheld fill-in shots. Unfortunately, the drummer wasn’t there, as he wasn’t in shot, so the drums were improved on the keyboard very well. The sound will be dubbed over anyway from the studio track, but I’m more worried about the drummer now not appearing in half of the video. I wasn’t aware of his non-presence before setting out.
If he’s in attendance next Sunday then hopefully I can cut him in enough and not waste today’s shoot.
