Video Production in London 2 – video still 7

Establishing the location of the helipad, we cut to a wide shot of an army sentry as he guards the central helipad area of this British army garrison in South Armagh, Northern Ireland. While he looks in total control, he poor guy didn’t know what hit him when our cameraman decided to do this hand held wide shot three feet from the young soldier’s face.

This was the last video footage shot as we left the army garrison, and was cut within the edit as a location establishing shot for this video production on the worlds best photographers for London based BBC Television.

After following Donovan Wylie, as he scrambles aboard the Puma helicopter, we pull back to a medium shot to reveal the military vehicle, as it’s engine revs faster to rise from the army base and the mill town of Bessbrook. This video footage was shot of another helicopter that came and went prior to us filming Donovan boarding his flight.

We spent some time filming detail shots in and around the army base, which were then cut in through the final edit in this video production for London based end user BBC Worldwide.

We now go to this somewhat menacing image of a Puma helicopter at the satellite army base, where it’s crew warm up it’s engines prior to Donovan boarding the vehicle. We go from this to a medium establishing shot, which shows the location of the army barracks within the town of Bessbrook in South Armagh, Northern Ireland.

As the British army had already begun to withdraw from Northern Ireland as part of the Peace Process Puma helicopters were now relatively scarce in the area, with gaps of 2 hrs between the arrival and departure of each, during this video production for UK based Wall to Wall, for end user BBC Worldwide in London.

Having been introduced to Magnum photographer Donovan Wylie inside his hotel bedroom, we now go outside to take in the sunlight that bathes the exterior of his hotel, as we watch him walk out of shot as he makes his way to this particular days work. The low and wide camera angle was used to make what could have been a tedious image into something more interesting.

The bottle of water in his hand was the only nourishment Donovan would take as he went about his business in this video production for London based BBC Television.

Giving the audience a chance to see the high end Hasselblad still camera belonging to Magnum photographer Donovan Wylie, this medium shot shows us the care and attention paid on his equipment by this Magnum photographer.

Lighting for this shot was primarily ambient, from the window to the left of Donovan, with a gelled tungsten hand light bounced from the ceiling to his right. This video production was shot over one long day in South Armagh, Northern Ireland for end use by BBC Worldwide.
