As part of the UNESCO City of Literature video that other students on my course are doing as part of their placement, I was assigned to shoot cutaways for the interviews. One of the shoots included filming Nigel McCrerey, a local Nottingham writer who is well known for writing ‘Silent Witness’.
In the interview, McCrerey mentions where he grew up in Nottingham, so we travelled to the house he lived at when he was younger. Creative cutaway shots also included him walking past the house threw the reflection of the window, as it was a perfect sunny day for filming.
The reliable Canon 7D was used for shooting as I have previous experience from last years placement with it. It was ideal for walking around filming as it is small, handy and has great HD recording quality.
