Videojournalism driven programmes
Filmminute from david dunkley gyimah on Vimeo.
Their show now successfully over, I feel I can now bring you the odd insert from the filminute.com global show.
The group behind this have an awesome product, which they've planned to turn into a show.
I suppose the point with this is that video journalism goes beyond clip-cut news and can be developed into something that can create a raft of progs.
This was a 2 hour shoot on location starting cold.
We ( Sabaa, Filminute exec) and I met at 12, storyboarded and prepped by 1 pm, and then rang up Selfridges, where the event was showing in a purpose built cinema.
By 2 we were at Selfridges, one of london's premier stores.
We started filming; he presenting around 2.30
By 4.30 we'd wrapped.
Editing at home took me about 5hours with post; reason, I was playing around with tone and we also had to synch the right music.
If I were to do this again, I'd attach my new prime lens to achieve shallow depths of film ie enhance the film look
