Video in Magazines...what next?

Will this revolutionise magazine advertising or will it be another gimmick that will fade after the initial furore....I guess we'll have to wait and see, but it's an interesting concept.

It apparently uses technology similar to the 'singing' greeting cards ~ small screens with integral batteries will run the video as the page is opened.

We're back...

After spending a glorious 10 days lazing around the pool in Turkey.

It has been a bit of a shock to the system though coming back from temperatures of 34+ degrees to just 9 degrees on the way home this morning.

We've kept the diary clear though for this weekend so that we can catch up on the mountain of post that was waiting for us as well as all that lovely washing :-(

Still, it was a good break just need to shed those inevitable holiday lbs...

We spent a day sight seeing and took in the ruins at, the Romans sure new how to build in style...we where probably still living in mud huts during the same era!

Two great weddings...

Friday 31st July 2009 was the date for Nicola & Glen's wedding at St Mary's in Chorley followed by a reception at Farington Lodge. How lucky were we with the weather? The rain stayed away until everyone was sat down for the wedding breakfast...phew! After the last couple of months that in itself is a miracle...

Here's a few pics Julie took on the day...

The little flower girl twirling in her dress...doesn't she look gorgeous!

Then yesterday, we where at St Andrew's in Longton followed by a reception at Bartle Hall for Nicole and Chris. And what can I say about the weather...hooray...finally a proper summers day!

They had gambled on the weather by having a horse and carriage...but it was worth it as it really looked fantastic. I don't think I've seen a pair of horses quite so good looking as those pulling the carriage yesterday. So that topped with the lovely colours of the dresses and the fine really set the scene for a beautiful occasion. I've shot some fantastic footage and what a treat at the reception. We had been told that they were going to put some food on for us but little did we know we were actually having the full wedding breakfast! It was hard work carrying on with the filming afterwards.

Some photos...

I managed to take on my phone whilst on the last couple of jobs with Big-TV. It gives you an idea of the shear size of the truck and also the view from up top... where I was stood on Sunday! How do I always manage to get myself in such precarious positions?

Day 3 - Ironman UK

Just a quick update before I set out this morning to film on Day 3 of the Ironman UK Event in Bolton.
I'm actually filming on a freelance basis for Big-TV again, but I feel like I have taken part! It's been a gruelling couple of days so far...but then that's all part of the fun.

Back to normality tomorrow...a gentler pace filming at Beaverbrooks and then getting down to some much required editing the rest of the schedule has seen a bit of slippage in recent weeks due to all the filming I've been doing and I need to catch up again!
