Creating My Videography Ident

With the different types of work that I create or collaborate on, I haven't had a clear identifying logo or sign that it was something from myself. So I decided to create an identifier (ident) that signals and bookends the videos that I produce. I wanted something clean, easily to adapt for different formats and resolutions, and I also wanted it to look nice (I hope you think so).

I'll be honest with you, I purchased a Adobe After Effects template to achieve this, simply because I didn't have the time when I wanted this done. It was a complete project which I manipulated (fonts, my own logo, you get the idea) and it a while for me to be happy with it.

The feedback has been positive from friends and via the Instagram post I put up recently. It has been a long time coming and it was time that I made this. It's pretty much going to be on everything that I produce now under my name. - AB

BLOG: Crown & Glory Pageant

At the weekend just gone I was working on the Crown & Glory Pageant in Wrexham in a two man team. It was a hectic but fruitful shoot with a lot of parts to it. We were shooting for over four hours and I've just begun putting the pieces together for the edit.

A copy of the Crown & Glory DVD can be ordered by contacting me directly.

BLOG: NEC Photography Show

Just as I was hankering for the atomos ninja 4k recorder recently I was invited by a photographer friend of mine to the NEC Photography show. I held off buying the recorder in order to speak to reps and get a hands on with the equipment. During the first couple of days of the show Atomos announced two new recorders with some fantastic new features.

Just wanted to include just a few pictures of what I saw - AB
