I worked at the BBC on programmes such as RPM and the Cellar Show, where one of my roles was to scout for bands to appear on the show. I was also responsible for organising the biggest OB at the time run by BBC West. 5 continuous days of bands.
I’ve filmed with hundreds of musicians and bands, including the Rolling Stones, Stranglers, Toyah Willcox and many others. All types of music, all sorts of styles. Budgets ..big …to small. With my background and experience of high level production, I can produce high quality images.
If a video is amateurish, then the by implication the band are amateurish. It doesn’t necessarily take a big budget, but good images, good lighting makes all the difference.
Here’s my latest video
..and here’s a very simple ( and cheap ) video “Money” I shot for Steve Giles and Chris Johnson …who are Richmond Soul.
I rather liked the single take version, but they intercut it with my other video for them
They told me it made a big difference to the number of bookings they got.
and here’s a behind the scenes video of the filming of something a little more complex
and here’s a link to some recent filming
