August Update 2021

It’s been a long time since I have sat down to write an update and with good reason. This has been the busiest I have seen the film industry in a very long time and long may it continue.

So I have been run off my feet working on a range of productions, from DP’ing to Focus Puller and Drone work on a range of projects from shorts to music videos, corporates and massive TV shows for the streaming giants. This week I finally have a bit of breathing room and am back in the office editing in my comfy chair.

It will also give me a chance to get around to a few little gear things I’ve been meaning to get around to.

I just ordered a 16TB internal hard drive to add to my Drobo 4 bay raid array, it’s the largest capacity drive I have ever bought and I’m sure it’ll be full in no time. I think it’s time to start looking into other backup options that don’t involve physical drives, possibly AWS or something.

I finally got around to getting a Boom Buddy which is just a fantastic piece of kit. I’m sure any sound person would tell you that but as a camera person who on occasion has to do sound when a production doesn’t want to hire a sound person or doesn’t have the budget for it, it is great well worth the money.

Two other bits of gear I’m looking at getting are an easy rig vary 5 with a cinema flex vest that actually fits me rather than these rentals that are always too big and a Flanders scientific grading / field monitor. Hopefully this will happen by the end of the year along with the completion of two long term projects.

In other news I have added a new collection of prints to the Jam Art website and I’m working on a few more. Link below:

Anyway, back to editing for now more updates soon…….maybe
