This week I've had the pleasure of working with a mate of mine, Josh Moore, aka Shoot J Moore.
Josh is a bit of a genius when it comes to photography and film. With his portfolio ranging from corporate functions and weddings to DJ sets and BMX stunts, he's always my go-to-guy for anything that requires a lens. So when the time came for the Assemble Fest team and seven commissioned theatre companies to be video interviewed, Josh received a call.
Filmed in the upstairs room of The English Muse, the interviews look and sound exactly how I envisaged them. Giving sneak peeks of the upcoming shows and an insight into how the festival has been organised, they'll all be uploaded to our YouTube channel very soon.
In the meantime, I thought I'd share this additional short video with you. It was taken on Wednesday 9th April, when Josh and I walked up and down Newland Avenue to get some cut-away shots. With a GoPro camera strapped to my chest, our 45-minute stroll has been condensed into just 126 seconds, Benny Hill style.
Included is a visit to The Fringe, the venue that will be used for 'Roller-coaster' by Single Story, and also where I made a mop chop appointment for that afternoon. Plus we bump into Bruce Khan, one of the actors who will be in 'Oppy Wood' by The History Troupe, and Matt Cunnah, who will very soon open his second Pie shop at 202 Newland Avenue (the original still at 19 Trinity House Lane near Holy Trinity Church).
It was an absolutely delightful day of filming, and I hope that this video brings as big a smile to your face as it has to my own.
