I noticed my challenge was looking devoid of females so I though this would be the perfect opportunity for me to announce my love for Gabrielle Aplin. Her music is just so amazing, I don’t even know where to begin. I wanted to go and see her live from the moment I heard ‘Home.’ I don’t think I have ever been so grateful for the iTunes’ Single Of The Week thing as much as I have then. I don’t think I’ve ever bought an EP as fast. I honestly love each and every one of her songs and fangirl whenever one of them gets played. I just have to go and see her live someday!
Last Monday I went to St Mary’s the Virgin Church, to film some live samples of Gabby Aplin for her new EP.
It was all being filmed live, so if something did go wrong, that would mean we’d have to start again from the beginning of the song. We did 5 songs, and most of it went well with just a few mess ups.
It was all fairly steady and laid back, we weren’t in too much of a rush.
I mainly just did a lot of camera work, in some shots there were candles around, so I had to try and contrast them in together with the performer, so not too much is focused onto the candles.
Also with doing live sets, is trying not to get anyone else, or different tripods, camera’s in your own shots, as there were also 4 other cameras filming her as well, so I had to keep an eye on the viewer, making sure the shot was clear.
