UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT

GORE VIDAL : The United States of Amnesia.

Gore Vidal

I am credited as DOP on the film that premiered at the Tribeca and the 57th London Film Festival and eventually won the Audience Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Nicholas Wrathall’s film documents Vidal’s life, his influence on politics and the media, and interviews the iconic writer alongside Christopher Hitchens, Mikhail Gorbachev and David Mamet.

When Gore Vidal died in 2012 the novelist, essayist, polemicist, bon-vivant and radical journalist was one of the world’s most iconic writers.

MOVILIKE GIMBAL

Gimball

This is currently my favourite piece of equipment. A versatile and easy-to-use robotic camera stabilizer that captures stunning images anywhere!

At the heart of the Gimbal are the IMU and the brushless direct drive system, which I custom-built to my own specifications. As it is fully calibrated to my Nikon D800 it needs almost no set-up time. It also performs in similar ways to the MOVI/Freefly system.

The system is robust and lightweight and enables me to pull off shots that would otherwise require hundreds of thousands of pounds in equipment and a substantial crew.

In other words, you can capture incredibly compelling dynamic shots with just a single cameraman.

Here is a good You Tube Video that shows the immense capabilities of such a system

AERIAL CINEMATOGRAPHY

Aerial

Since my first helicopter shoot in the late 1990s I have developed a passion for aerial cinematography.

With the fascinating current development in UAV or drone technology, I am currently in the process of finishing my BNUC certificate and applying to the CAA for an Aerial Photography approval.

Towards the end of the year I should be able to offer Aerial Cinematography services for up to 4K resolution based around a Tarot X6 Hexacopter.

CINEMATOGRAPHIC LOOK

The exceptional quality of the Nikon Prime lenses combined with the lightweight of the D800 Nikon body and the dynamic capabilities of the MoviLike Gimbal means this a versatile hire package.

Bypassing the camera’s mpg compression and recording the HDMI output in 10 bit to the Atomos Ninja, gives access to the full dynamic range during colour correction in post-production.
