These are some of the film projects I have been involved in:

A glimpse of what we do in the park
The Shot – fun with Damo Cross and Benjamin Borley
Tuesday 21st. This is the location scout mashup for Tuesday 21st.
Mostly I used a 50mm lens, but also a 35mm and an 85mm made an appearance. The whole piece was graded using Magic Bullet Quick Looks
Richard James: the unplugged sessions
I was responsible for a fixed Sony EX1, a fixed Sony Z1 and a Canon 5DMkii which was mounted on a 1.5m glidetrack for 3 tracks that made up this session.
The Gingerbread Man
This ‘award winning’* stop motion animation was mostly the work of my 6 year old although I did lend a hand setting up the camera and editing it all together. We used a Canon 5D mkii on full manual (not that you could tell) and a 50mm f/1.2 lens. The ‘set’ was badly lit with an old angle poise lamp. We used Quicktime 7 to make image sequences at 6FPS and then edited together with Final Cut Pro
*the award being in the top 12 animations submitted to the school and a place on an Animated Exeter workshop
Written by Benjamin J Borley & David Salas as Exeter Phoenix Digital Short Film Commission 2010. I was privileged to work on the sound team, responsible for location sound. I was also second camera.
I was DoP / cameraman (using the 5DMkII and the 7D) for this music video shoot of local band Empire Nation performing their new track Light my way. This was an all-night shoot and boy was it cold!
Not sure whether I was first, second or third camera on this music video of Richard James’s Waiting for the call, but I used a 5DMkII and a 70-200 F/2.8 lens, shooting from the right hand side of the stage. Damo shot the handheld footage on a 7D using the 16-35mm f/2.8 lens, and we had 2 fixed cameras.
This next film was commissioned by our STEP team, I was Director, runner and a grip, and compiled the first rough cut of the footage
This was shot on a 7D using the 100mm F/2.8 Macro lens. Shot at 50FPS and confirmed to 25FPS using the workflow from Philip Bloom that can be found here.
This was shot using a canon 16-35 lens on the 5DMkII with the camera set to AV mode f4.5 and ISO at 640, shutter interval 2 seconds. It is a little boring, but I think our director would like us all to work that fast all the time. Oh, and it was my first effort at timelapse.
Here I am concentrating hard on set of a short film called Mort-gage (Benjamin J Borley & David Salas, Exeter Phoenix Digital Short Film Commission 2010)
and a another shot of the action with Robin Wherney as DoP and Kevin Horhsam as ‘Tom’
Thanks to bjb for the pictures
Still from the Empire Nation Light my way all-night shoot and boy was it cold!
