I’m offering a one hour ‘one on one’ skype session with anyone who might be interested via the YOUR DEMISEIndiegogo campaign. It’s your chance to ask me anything about filmmaking, get some tips and secure feedback on your next couple of pieces of work. You’ll have my undivided attention for the hour and in this period we can talk about any aspects of my job you wish or I can talk you through the process’ I have for different parts of my work. It’s kinda like a private masterclass. Alternatively we can talk about anything you want (within reason) haha.
There are 5 of these slots available at £40 each. If you’re interested go take a look at the project now. There are 39 days remaining. I’ll also throw in as a thatfilmduderyan.com exclusive a free download of the documentary in whatever format you wish.
I’ve not had a lot of time free to post many blogs on this tour because it’s only a week long, but I will be doing an overview once the tour has completed featuring some of my photos and also my experiences shooting with a bunch of rodemic products. We’ve been using more of the ‘on the fly’ mobile pieces of gear which have suited our situation perfectly where we have minimal time to set things up (rode iXY shown below in it’s handy carry case).
Today I’m in Manchester and I’ve had about 5 hours sleep so I’m feeling slightly out of it. I don’t recommend going to bed at 5am and waking up at 10am to begin work, but that is part of this job. The early wake up was made slightly better though by the opportunity to grab a coffee with a recent new buddy of mine Adam elmakias. I always enjoy in-depth chats about working on content with like minded individuals working in a similar field, and Adam is definitely on that wavelength. He hails from San Diago, California, USA and is currently on the road with A Day To Remember full time, but on this occassion was in Manchester with All Time Low. Please check out some of his work at adamelmakias.com.
On the tour with me is Josh Mansfield who’s an invaluable person to have on the road. His levelled skill base enables me to maximise my time shooting while he deals with setting up other pieces of equipment, rigging time-lapses and generally shooting b-roll of various other things. Yesterday he proved to be even more valueable than that when we got pulled over in Carlisle for one of the tour’s 2 vans being overweight. Josh had to jump in and drive a rental van so we could complete the journey to Glasgow’s Cathouse where the show was happening. Never a dull moment with Your Demise (as the guys say, Josh pictured below on the right with our TM Tank).
If you’re interested in what’s going on in real-time then please hit up my other social networking sites listed below. Tomorrow we begin the two London shows at the underworld where I’ll have a small crew to run, so until after the tour, this is me signing off on the blog.
