Live At Brixton is now available on amazon and iTunes. My first movie on both of the sites, which is pretty cool!

Just used the @rodemic stereo videomic pro for an impromptu back streets acoustic in London. Great mic for such an application. The 20+ boost works great to compensate poor DSLR audio. Check it out if you shoot a lot of acoustic/musical features.
Middle Class Rut
I started working with Middle Class Rut (from California) today at Brixton Academy in London. We’re starting off with just a couple days shooting in London which will culminate in a couple short videos. I’d never seen this band play before but after one show I’m sold. Incredible stuff for a two piece (who tour with 3 other guys filling in duties on other instruments). Watch this space for more photos and videos.
Tonight’s workaround. No ‘professional cameras’ allowed. So watch me turn the stage footage from this into something sick. #ipadmini
Back at Brixton on the day ‘Live In Brixton’ gets released. Pretty random. Filming some video with Middle Class Rut tonight.
Music Videographers births a facebook page!
Music videographers is a group on vimeo that has 22,000 users and nearly 80,000 user generated videos. Impressive numbers! I started it about 5 years ago just trying to create a community on a very young vimeo. Since then, vimeo has become the best thing since sliced bread (as we all know) and many people associate it with quality when it comes to video on the web. There’s so much content on the MV group it’s insane but the achilles heel has always been that communication is tough on the site. The forums got completely bombarded with spam at one point. So the other day I thought ‘why not put this on facebook too’ so people can connect and work with one another.
After a message to everyone on the group with the idea, followed by thousands of messages back asking for me to go ahead, the page was created. You can join up to it by clicking the photo above. Already 2 hours in we’ve had 300 likes and it’s growing fast. This page really is a hub for anyone who creates videos with music (excluding your family holiday videos). We’re building a solid community which will ultimately result in a lot of creativity WORLD WIDE. Please reblog this post on tumblr and also spread the word on other social networking sites. Your contributions will lead to a family of creatives, unrivalled!
