This was the last fiming day of the five part Channel 5 series. Today we were with a lovely Catholic family in Lincolnshire, the Gillicks. They were so friendly, like all the families we have met on this series and despite never having done TV before were natural and warm on camera and not nervous at all.
I shot most of it using my EX1 and Letus Extreme combo, with NO LIGHTS, just available from dull winter outside light and indoor tungsten light bulbs. I had to use 3db of gain most of the time, but the place was so small there was no way I could put lights up. It looks great, just been ingesting it all.
I had to do some filming on the f350 as I had to go into another room and it was really dark, to get the Letus off the EX1 would have taken so long, so just got the F350 out. 6db of gain, a bit noisy but it looks fine.
The final stuff I did I shot with the EX1 clean as it was a lot of “run and gun” stuff and I am not comfortable with the ex1 and 35mm adaptor handheld just yet, too cumbersome. I need some sort of shoulder bracket.
I will post stills tomorrow for you to see and of course all five finished pieces on my website.
