We had a great time finishing off my documentary shoot in port douglas over the last month, we set out to get as much underwater footage as possible, shots of the boat in sail and lots and lots of sunsets! …. Now we have the rather large task of editing over 70 hours of footage!

So your camera dies…what next?

So your beloved camera, that wonderful, reliable piece of kit that you use for all your video productions, finally bites the dust…

Inexpensive Pan and Tilt Head from Servo City

Have you ever dreamed of having a remote pan and tilt head for your jib? I know, I know… as an Indie filmmaker we’re not made of money! Well I just stumbled upon a rather elegant and inexpensive solution for small DSLR sized cameras. Thanks to Cheesycam.com for the heads up.

Introducing the Servo City PT785-S Pan & Tilt system, an all aluminium pan and tilt remote head which can handle cameras up to 2.73kg (6lbs). It offers 400 degrees of rotation and, with a bit of ingenuity, could be mounted to just about any jib for use on low budget video productions. I’ve seen heads like this mounted on cranes, remote control heli-rigs, quadrocopters, cars…You name it.

Lauren’s Documentary Update

Hello Readers,

I just wanted to give you an update on my up and coming Feature Documentary.

I started shooting this doco in 2010, and I am now currently at the post production stage, I have over 60 hours of footage to digitise and then sort through into individual scenes. For those of you who don’t know about my documentary take a look at our ongoing projects page, have a read about the film and take a look at the short introduction I shot last year. The Smith family have sold everything they own, their house, cars and even their furniture in order to follow their dream of going sailing around Australia.
