Secrets of British Animation

If you missed it “Secrets of British Animation” aired on Sunday – catch it on iPlayer here:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0btynjg/sign/secrets-of-british-animation

Lovely quirky film from Seb Barfield and John Das over at Academy 7.  As well as meeting several greats of the animation world it was a special privilege to shoot with Osbert Parker re-creating his working style for his brilliant film “Clothes” osbertparker.co

FS5 Kit now available

fs5-big-one-1

I am now available for hire with the new Sony FS5 which I am using with Canon lenses and Metabones adapters – please see kit page for details and rates of all my kit.

The FS5 is a great camera for small documentary and broadcast studio work,  and as perfect as nifty B-camera for bigger productions.  It produces a solid broadcast quality picture at 50MB/s with options for grading plus it has a cached high-speed ability retaining 10-bit 4:2:2 up to 240fps at 1080P.

High-end work, especially in the studio, is also possible by recording RAW to an external recorder.

New Kit Coming Soon!

When stock arrives in the UK I’ll be offering Sony FS5 – XAVC full HD 422 at 50mb/s for self produced jobs and lightweight documentary work.  Apparently there has been a production bottleneck caused by factory earthquake damage in Japan.

This camera is great for such a small package – for speedy doc work I particularly like the variable ND and the wifi monitoring.  Several reviews have mentioned how great these cameras are on battery life too.
