Forgive me the indulgence, cuz I won't repeat this. All a bit surreal this, but I expressed an interest to capture an urban, grunge style of videojournalism.
At various talks I have always called videojournalism, getting down and dirty, the photojournalist with the movie camera.
Then David Berman from Sitbonzo, an amazing photographer, with his equally astounding crew stepped in. [ HIRE HIM.. HIRE HIM]
I'll be profiling David and his work soonish. I managed to sneak a few video shots during the shoot. And apparently during a break in the shoot when I wanted to move my car, for fear of it being nicked, plus it was freezin, so needed a jumper, David and crew recorded a message on my camera. Haven't seen it yet.
So back to David and crew. David's got that arts director eye, works extremely fast and with the crew we had a fab time as I pretended I was Jay-z.
So Yeawh Phrew I became the model. Go on laugh. I did, a lot.
If you can ignore the bloke in the middle, which negates the point of the shoot [Oh you you know what I mean] this is Gap man goes video journalism.
p.s Hey I'm wearing Nike's [ product endorsement... product endorsement... No I didn't get paid.. Nike email I'm not expensive LOL)
If you're going to be at SXSW, See you there. Otherwise this morning I'm speaking at the NUJ.
