Between buying a house and being part of the MAKE FILMS course, I’ve been struggling to keep up with life and blogging of late. I hope you can bear with me until I’m settled in.
On the upside, coming up with a film each week does mean I get to squeeze in something creative and do something fun so I can’t complain.
Here’s my second film, the ever beautiful Columbia Road Flower Market.
If you’ve not yet been, it’s a must. Get there early (by 9am), grab a coffee and pastry from the Pavillion Bakery and explore every stall.
I thought some of you might like to know what’s involved in the course so I’ve updated my last film post with a bit more detail. For week two, we were given tips on adding music to video and a handful of extra shots to the six we got in week one.
The film prompt was a video portrait or a place I liked. I managed to combine the two here and was very lucky that my friend Germaine was willing to be my subject (wearing a lovely fun dress). I got so many lovely comments on Instagram that I like to think it shows my skills are improving each week.
I’ve added music to films before, but I’ve never filmed a person like this so that was probably the biggest lesson learnt this week. I can see its imperfections but overall I’m really pleased with it. Hope you like it!
I’m really enjoying learning a new skill that complements what I know about photography. And every Tuesday, I genuinely look forward to a new segment of the course being released and then coming up with ideas to film the prompts.
