In a New York Minute (and a half)

In October of last year I was lucky enough to be chosen to attend the Philip Bloom A7s workshop hosted by B&H in New York. Having used the A7s quite extensively and already feeling comfortable with the camera, I had to make a decision as to whether or not this would be worth the plane ticket. I knew there wasn’t an awful lot more for me to learn about the camera, but I’m really glad I made the effort. I made some great new friends and got to shoot in one of the places I love shooting most, The Big Apple

It was great to attend a workshop with Philip. He is so incredibly knowledgeable and I think everyone in our industry owes him a massive thank you for his dedication to increasing the knowledge of millions of filmmakers around the world. It was actually one of Philip’s films that inspired me to buy my first DSLR all those years ago and it changed my career forever. So on behalf of the filmmaking community and myself, thank you

I kept my subject pretty basic for this film. I just wanted to get the vibe of NYC across as best I could. Of course, the city is bustling and sound would play a rather large part in this short film. I used a Rode Videomic Pro, obviously an A7s and a Canon 50mm 1.2, 100-400mm lens and a 16-35 2.8 all with Metabones adapter for the time lapses. I shot the time lapses with Sony’s time lapse app which worked pretty well
