Commonwealth Games XX Venue Films

Last month I created Glasgow Commonwealth Games films for each of the Commonwealth venues on behalf of Game on Scotland. I filmed world-class sporting venues across Glasgow from the Emirates Areas through to the Athletes’ Village.

The film was produced by Metro Broadcast and I shot all the greeenscreen over the course of a day at Commonwealth House and often shot two or three venues a day. So a tight turn-around, filming with a sound recordist and a director. All the films were shot on the Canon 5D mk3 and where time  allowed I used a slider, steadicam and crane – all my own kit which is also available for hire.

Since I didn’t edit this series myself I may cut a quickie highlights film of my favourite bits if I find the time in the coming weeks. But I’m off the the Highlands tomorrow morning shooting documentary  ‘Where You’re Meant to Be‘ – a Scottish Musical road trip. The film is part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme, and the ensuing film is set to premiere after the close of the Games, in late August. So if you’re near the Village Hall at Drumnadrochit tomorrow night you can still get tickets.

‘People Make Glasgow’ advert

I’ve been a busy camera operator recently, and yesterday I was shooting a commercial yesterday for Cask Productions at the Stand Comedy Club in Glasgow with comedian Raymond Mearns. We only had 7 extras for an hour and a half so I hope you’ll agree we’ve done a good job to make it look busy on a Sunday afternoon. This short section of the 30 second ad features people arriving at the club and engaging with Ray on a night out.This short section will make up one of 5 locations and should air on TV in the coming months. I was working with the consummate professional David Reilly at Cask Productions and the client was Glasgow City Marketing Bureau.

Commercial Camera Operator Ryan  Blackwood is available for filming commercial and documentary work throughout Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland.

Getting my skates on with Red Bull

Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Ice Rink hosted the first-ever Red Bull Crashed Ice Scottish qualifier on Friday, December 13, as almost 50 skaters took to the ice – and I was there with a crane and a pair of ice skates. Filming with Alan ‘slow-motion’ Stockdale at Foundlight Films was fun as ever, as together with another two filmmakers we shot the qualifiers.

Ayr’s Callum Boyd became one of three UK athletes to skate his way to a starting spot at all four Ice Cross Downhill World Championship events in 2014!
