Isle of Skye video shoot

This is a completely unofficial edit I did too see what I shot earlier this week I was filming on the Isle of Skye on behalf of CompassLight Productions. The video shoot involved filming at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (Gaelic College), the Clan Donald Centre at Armadale and Gaelic Whiskies. The goal was to capture authenticity and interactions with the locals. CompassLight wanted to provide an authentic picture of the locales visited – energetic, bustling, lively and off-the-beaten-path. Using my travel days I explored more of the north of the island, at the Cuillin mountains and ranged as far north as Portree and the Old Man of Storr.

Scottish Referendum filming

As a Scottish camera operator during the Referendum I provided live coverage for channels like Antena 3, Arte, Tele Madrid, Telecinco, RTVE, PRVA and 8TV. A belated post sharing some snaps I captured in November during the Independence referendum. I’m sure lots of Scottish camera operators worked throughout the Scottish Independence referendum and things certainly picked up over the days in the lead up. I worked for Overon providing live broadcast coverage for mostly European TV channels . The most exciting of these was a two person shoot for Arte so went live to France and Germany. The shoot required a bit of shoulder shooting being directing from the OB truck as they cut between the two-camera set up, live from the Royal Mile. Sadly once the ‘No’ vote came through on the friday things cooled off a little – so Friday wasn’t filled with the same sense of energy!
