As the Junior Doctor’s contract dispute continues with no end in sight, I revisit the saga of certain claims made by the Health Secretary last year – and find, as always, nothing is quite as it see…
On Monday the 29th of January, I had a great night filming; I am doing a documentary on the late, great Jimmy Reid. I only started filming different bits of footage earlier this month, but the other night I managed to get in to thee Jimmy Reid Memorial lecture, which was chaired by the first minister, Alex Salmond. This was my first time filming a famous face delivering a speech on Jimmy Reid and independence, filming this documentary has help me a lot to feel more comfortable making a documentary rather than a drama. I was hoping to get Alex Salmond to answer a question for my film, but with all his guards, I didn’t think that was going to happen, but I just decided to go for it, grab my chance, and after the speech I managed to get my question to him and he answered it happily. Now I have realised that pushing the right doors open and you may get what you need, overall I was very proud that I went for it and got what I needed.
Last year at half 7 in the morning, I was woken by the sounds of shouting and screaming, I looked out my window, then what I saw I knew I had to film, hope it put’s a smile on your face as it did mine.
For the last few week’s I have been down, due to missing classes as SASS have still not paid me a penny, so getting to college is very difficult due to the crazy train ticket prices. I also lost my lead actress from my short as she didn’t feel up for it; due to it being provocative, but luckily I found a great replacement. The set back means it may be a real struggle to shoot the scene I wanted before 2013.
I took this photo, using a Cannon 550d, they made it a HDR image, so now I feel back and ready to get moving, just wish my SASS pay comes in soon. Peace Folks
This week college was off so I got a tad bored, I decided to practice some editing on adobe premiere, I was pleased as I made my 1st ghost and got to know the program better. Also I spent a lot of the week networking, tring to get my name out there and me and my friends facebook page, which is www.facebook.com/greenecarrfilms, just in-case you didn’t know .
I spent my night times reading up and practising my cinematography using my hdv camera. I want to master the camera, my framing and so on. For many year’s I have always felt it was important to keep props, dummy blood, fake limbs, scares, stab wounds and fake heads. This week it was fake heads, so I done a bit of exercise mixing wallpaper paste, until I had an arm like “Popeye“. Good week overall.
My latest edit, hope y’all enjoy
