Super 8 wedding fun

Last month, two of my favourite people, Jocie and Rory….. tied the knot on the white isle of ibiza… a few weeks before me and the beautiful bride Jocie (another film maker) got onto the subject of filming it. Jocie was saying it would be cool to shoot some super 8 film. Well about 5 years ago, a very lovely […]

Sony F55 Product Test

I dread to think how many 1000s of hours I have spent attached to a sony EX1 while filming doco or reality tv shows. I’ve always loved shooting on Sony. You know where you are, they are built like tanks and very user friendly. Because of this – I was excited to hear that sony had released a F5 and […]

Canon C100 Product Review

I remember just before I bought my first  DSLR being told that if I was going to be a professional then I should only really chose between these two brands, […]

Little Bit Of Black Magic

Film making is an expensive process. Gatsby recently rang in the registers at just over 100mil. Now thats fine if you have a wallet the size of Mr Lurhman, but what about little old film makers like myself, who want a shot at hollywood, but only have a Bondi budget? This is where the black magic comes in, now I […]

Twixtor Slow Motion Plug-in

NOT A CAMERA REVIEW, BUT A SOFTWARE REVIEW THIS TIME: I am a self-confessed ‘slow-motion-aholic’. My school of thought is that if something looks nice, it will look even nicer 10 times slower. In order to create good quality slow-mo footage, a camera must film twice as fast as normal to allow you to slow it down and the picture […]
