Brightcove personal Videojournalism films
In one year as I recall I made nearly 500 videojournalism stories. Phew!
At the last conservative estimate at the studio I had some 800 beta tapes, 150 digibetas, 700 dvcam and countless VHS - that's a lot of stories, but I'll spare myself the embarrassement and try and be a bit more critical.
So here are some of the stories that are on viewmagazine.tv which I have now migrated to Brightcove, whose compression codec compared to Youtube is streets ahead.
Eventually the films should provide an interesting time line in videojournalism's many styles, which starts of looking like traditional TV before, something else...
The few uploaded thus far are more promo orientated, (something I enjoy doing from working in Soho) but here's the link, where a number of films I had to split into two for yourtube to get the compression right can now be viewed in their entirety. The Ferrari film for once doesn't come out looking like chewing gum.
At some point, I'll produce the Making of the film in Cairo between Robb Montgomery and me..
