I was asked last month if I could help create some promotional videos for US based clothing label No Rival along with UK scratch DJ, DJ Short-E. Obviously I couldn’t pass that up, no only would I get to film and edit another project, but it would be getting shown in Las Vegas of all places!
The intention was to have the edits play on the TV at the S.L.A.T.E. exhibition in Vegas over the 17th, 18th and 19th of August, so with the turntables set up and Short-E ready to go, I set up the JVC Everio on the tripod and went handheld with the Canon 550D, alternating between the 70-300mm Tamron and the 50mm Canon prime lens.
It was actually the first time I’d shot anything with multiple cameras and was looking forward to getting stuck in to edit them together. That task itself turned out to be an absolute doddle, and it didn’t take long to finish off all 6 of the recordings we did.
Above is the first of the six, and you can find the rest in this album on Vimeo.
