A Week in the Studio...

This week so far has been spent editing and visiting clients to finalise details for some upcoming projects.

The edits have included a promo for Blackpool Tower (via Keeley Duffy PR) using some of my own footage as well as some footage from their archives. I actually started this project just before Christmas so it was nice to get it finally finished...

I've also edited some footage for Glasgows from an NHS conference that was filmed in London a week or so ago. Another edit was for MTJ Associates for their client Sutcliffe Play. Again this was editing some of their own footage shot on a little hand held camera at an event they exhibited at.

And finally I'm also editing some of my own footage from a wedding I filmed last year at Gibbon Bridge. It was a lovely wedding just a shame that it rained all day...but still the footage is looking good and I must admit one of my favourite wedding edits was from a wedding filmed up at Dunsop Bridge in the middle of August (a few years ago) when it was just torrential rain for the whole of the morning...but the DVD was fab - even if I do say so myself!

How much snow?

Well it has certainly made for an interesting week. Appointments cancelled or rearranged, kids schools closed, snow ball fights, sledging...and there is more on the way! Okay, I think the novelty is wearing off now...can we just go back to the rain. I know, I know I'm being a party pooper but you have to admit we are just not prepared for this sort of weather and it it seems to cause all kinds of problems when we get it. Roll on summer...

Happy New Year!

What a year 2009 was - here's hoping 2010 is as good.

Apologies for the lack of posts during the last month but it has been very busy. We have managed to produce approximately 1000 DVD's during December for various schools and nurseries and I can honestly say that really it took some doing!

A great big thank you as well to Steve and Steph from Ashton Photography who gave up some of their free time to come and help us cut up DVD covers and duplicate some of the discs. It really was appreciated guys!

How the time goes as well - it was this time last year that we actually started our blog and it has been really great being able to share some of our stories throughout the year - the work we have done, the places we have been, the people we have filmed - from Charles and Camilla at The Gathering to Jamie Archer at the Preston lights switch on, it's been an amazing year.

2010 is already looking good with the diary nearly fully booked for January, February and March - you really do have to ask 'What recession?' how much is real and how much is just press hype...

So here's to a happy and successful 2010 for everyone and hopefully lots more blogs of what we are up to over the coming months...
