Today is the 9th birthday of this blog which is quite unbelievable for me. I started this blog with the intent of having an archive to look back on and it has been doing exactly that much to the cost of my pride. It’s been very humbling to look back on some posts where i was very clearly exuding youthful arrogance.
It’s really great to see how far I’ve come….
Some stats for you:

So far today’s shoot is going well. My brother has been away and normally I would use his kit so on this and last week’s shoot, I’ve been hiring in kit from www.kitroommonkey.co.uk who are based in Ealing studios.
The kit is centered around a Canon 5d mk2 on rails with a Dedo light kit and a H4N with boom. There are a few items new to me but generally it’s a great kit and packs down well.
I’m particularly loving the rail system. It’s great to be able to pull the while rig off the sticks and run it from the shoulder. My first rail setup last week was poorly thought out but this morning I had a little more time to set it up and I nailed it.
Proof will be the footage!
