At the begininng of the year I spent a couple of weeks shooting production and promotional shots for the feature length debut of a talented director/writer by the name of Trevor Garlick. “A wedding most strange” was filmed entirely in North Devon and tells the tale of Danny Weatherill (played by Chris Finch) and his efforts to find love and get married in just 2 weeks before he loses his inheritance under the terms of his fathers will.
Croyde Surf Club ran the Steve McKewan memorial contest today, the delayed finale of the clubs 2010 season was a brutal test of endurance for the groms sent to test the monstrous conditions…..a historic moment saw the guys elect to surf the all-in Open shoot-out at the point where Ossian claimed victory.Share
Early morning for once, dragged my sorry ass down to Croyde for dawn. Pretty sizey but not really doing it. The only thing that brigthened my day was the stray firework that is Scott. Check out his royal greenness……thought I’d bung this up before we hot foot it to Lyndaka. Anyone coming?Share
Had an intresting and varried day – lots of photo editing as per usual – but as the sun went down it was time to hit the mean streets of Braunton in search of a location for some commissioned pix. It was cold and dark when we rocked up at the bowl but it was conveniently empty. Set up a few different shots and worked using remote lights, we where joined halfway through by a bunch of noisy teens who I feared would put an end to the shoot, but they just sat,watched and chatted amongst themselves until we left, when one of them gave a cheery “Bye”…nice. Here’s a quick peek just to keep young Willow happy.Share
Up early today for a bit of a strang one. Appledore book festival was launched this morning on Westward Ho! beach with the help of a replica World War 2 secret weapon. The Panjandrum, built by Starburst Fireworks, was fired at 7.30am as the dropping tide revealled the beach below the Pebble ridge. The 4oolb device proppelled by 36 rocket motors was an unknown quantity, with the authorities not taking any chances and closing a 1 mile strech of the beach.Share
