My First Movie

My First Movie

My new camcorder arrived on Friday morning so I took it out to document a sunny weekend trip to London Fields. I've uploaded the finished - albeit rough - edit to Vimeo. I think my main problem was my post Stag & Dagger hangover shakes which meant the footage I shot was pretty shaky - Kate's shots are much steadier - although it's hard to keep everything still when you're walking along dodging East London trendies.

Seeing as it's my first attempt at recording and editing I'm pretty pleased with the results which you can see below or on my Vimeo page and I really enjoyed the recording and editing process even though I did feel a bit self-conscious pointing the camera at everyone but I'm sure I'll get over that.

If my unsteady hands don't improve there's a Manfrotto tripod under my desk at work that I'm considering 'borrowing' but it's pretty heavy-duty and not very portable which defies the whole point of buying a tiny camcorder so maybe I need to have a rethink about that.
