Moving Pictures…………..

26 Feb

I am getting on in years, and converting from glass slides to film and now on to the latest digital thingys has been an ongoing steep learning curve, and that’s without throwing in learning how to drive the Mac.

So I take my hat off ( the one that keeps the sun off my widening bald spot) to the new generation off photographer/videographer. Vincent Laforet, www.laforetvisuals.com  and Chase Jarvis,www.chasejarvis.com are just two of the new breed setting the world on fire at the moment. Well guess what, we breed them here as well, Nathan from DreamSpace productions www.dreamspaceproductions.com.au is one that I have been lucky enough to work with on a few shoots and his skills as a conceptualist, director, camera operator and Mac pilot just seem to have grown at a stellar rate every time we team up.

I turn up one bag, some stands and lights and off I go shooting, easy. Nathan and his crew carry out what amounts to a logistics campaign every time, daunting to us stills only togs, but to these guys its just a day at the office. Wires, batteries, drive units, remote focus units and other gadgets that look like they are straight from the Star Wars movies. The incredible thing is that after doing the tech work, they seamlessly change rolls and go all creative.

The equipment is fantastic, but when you combine this with natural talent the results are world-class. Nathan shot his latest piece for the beautiful Kristina, the shot was dreamt up on the spot the night before, gear was carried and assembled at a location that the DreamSpace team had never seen before in the dark early the next morning, the guys shot the footage and a preview clip was presented to the model that day. I exhausted just retelling the tale.

I took some nice stills of the beautiful Kristina and push a button on the BTS shots…….that was enough for this dinosaur.
