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.

I’ve been getting to grips with a few bits of software new to me…..always the source of lots of swearing. So I thought I’d post my latest attempt. Several hours of tinkering and messing and I’ve finally worked out how to embed my own flash movies rather than having to post on youtube.
Soundtrack is “kindom of rust” by the Doves. Love the track and “Oceans of trust” was a good tenuous link.
I’ve dug back in the archives for a little slideshow. Shot over 2 days this features Fistral and Watergate with Johnny Fryer and others rippin it up. Stunning light and crystal clear water…hope you like.
I’ve enjoyed putting together another (shorter) slideshow today. Covering dawn to dusk in North Devon, this showcases some of the beautiful sights on offer in this special area.

It’s nice to learn something new and it’s even better when you can show the rest of the world. I’d been wanting to make a half decent slideshow for ages and had tried a number of options but none really worked for me. I found the online slide/flkr/photobucket type options didn’t do the job. Then yesterday i found a piece of software lurking on my hardrive that I didn’t I had and it could do most of what I wanted. I know its basic and everyone else has probably heard of it, but Windows Movie Maker was news to me. After a quick 8 minute tutorial found on youtube I was away. Stayed up later that I’d planned, always the way, but you have to put the time in or you never learn.
Got back on it this morning and realised last nights attempt #1 should never see the light of day. I wanted to showcase some of my surf and landscape /seascape work from the last year and present in a tidy fashion. So I started from scratch again. Threw in a couple of clips from the mobile and chucked on a bit of moby and here we go. Attempt #2. Let me know what you think.
