  • Donating your skills and time to charity work is rewarding in many ways.

    Donating your skills and time to charity work is rewarding in many ways.

    No matter what size your business giving something back through charity work actually helps promote business as well as being a lot of fun. That’s why I try to offer a free filming day for any of my larger corporate clients if they have organised an event such as the Mills and Reeve tackle 4 Welsh Mountains. We were blessed with beautiful late afternoon sunshine, but this came at the cost of would possibly be the most torrential downpour of […]

  • Happy to rush out my rushes

    Happy to rush out my rushes

    It’s a rather wet and dark October Monday and it’s certain that winter is on its way.  So in an effort to fight off winter blues I have my S.A.D. lamps at the ready and have stocked up on vitamin D. So today’s task of getting some rushes over to a client from a shoot on Friday has been rather nice.  I’ve just looked up to the bin containing all of the 12 interviews, recorded amazingly in less than a […]

  • All Change at the next Station

    All Change at the next Station

    Had my cameras and was passing Radio Verulams so thought I would pop in and see how the refit was going.   It certainly is all change, and fortuantely had my 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens with me.  Felt a bit like an estate agent, but pleased with the photos. Amazed at how much more space there looks like there is going to be with both the main and second studio extended into what was corridors.  Nice little detais such as […]

  • Roland Anderson plays Bach’s Cello Suite no.1

    Roland Anderson plays Bach’s Cello Suite no.1

    This video tests out some of the vast capabilities of my Nikon D800 digital SLR camera and features the talents of my friend, professional cellist Roland. It’s not easy to film a musical performance from different angles but I am very pleased with the result which is very informal and intimate. The sound quality is excellent and the lighting works really well. I think it captures Roland’s love of the music and his passion for his instrument.

    Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge Launch Event 2015

      It’s always great to see so many different schools, businesses and charities coming together.  Penny Mortimer (pictured left) is a true genius coming up with ‘The Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge.  Creating links between business, schools and charities has done so much for not only raising money and passing on business skills to children, but has been a great networking and publicity machine.  Even filming from the side lines it has been great to be involved last year and I’ve got […]

    First joint news and filming event goes well at The Crescent St Albans

    Had a great afternoon at The Crescent charity garden party, and got a great shot of our new Mayor Geoff Harrison. The Crescent was establish in 1988 around the time of the first World Aids Day, to provide support, counselling, advice and other therapeutic services for people diagnosed and others impacted by HIV/AIDS. I interviewed the founder Iain Murtagh, Head of Operations who was passionate about the centre even though NHS funding had been pulled as it provides a vital […]

  • Sarah McCloughry on Leadership, Gravitas and Women

    Sarah McCloughry on Leadership, Gravitas and Women

    Brief: Convey vision, purpose and credibility Solution: Speaker, audience reaction and instant video testimonial montage. Getting footage of a client performing live is the best way to capture their personal charisma and the difference they make to others. I worked closely with Sarah to develop a video mood board before the shoot.  This defined the brief so we both understood exactly what the aim was, and Sarah developed her presentation with this in mind.  I always work hard to ensure participants […]

    Dawn and Paul

    I’ve honed my own special style of 20 minute highlights. I cut between interviews, speeches and key moments of the day to keep it flowing – most friends and family are grateful for something short, sweet and meaningful!   Other wedding cuts include short highlights, themed slide shows (Hats and Tails; Bride’s Boudoir, Line up) and speeches and ceremony in full as DVD extras to the main video. For more details see my wedding video website www.tindel.co.uk
