Canon 5d Mk11

This promo was shown at Buckingham Palace, the Queen saw it on a big screen, and of course loved it, “twas wicked” I think was the quote, it was also shown at 02 cinemas.

This is the Canon 5d Mk11 kit that I use, if you click on the image you can see a bigger picture.

This is a Music Promo that I shot on the Canon 5d Mk11 30p whilst I was in New York and Boston shooting a corporate promo. I shot the footage as a kind of roadtrip and cut it using Final Cut, check out the ‘dude’ taxi driver at the start of the clip.

These are a a small collection of talking heads, interviews, from corporate promos, some of which were part of a film that won Gold at this years IVCA awards 2011.
I posted it to show the look of the Canon 5d Mk11, when using it for this purpose.

When I got into filming with these cameras I went for a Canon 7d because it had the 25p option. This is a little film of my kids at Christmas shot on the Canon 7d. It was all handheld, no camera supports and a 50mm 1.4 fixed lens, I edited it using Final Cut Pro and the song ‘Luckier’ is one I wrote and perform.

I have been using the Canon 5d Mk11 professionally for a while now. It is a tricky camera to use, and to produce images with consistency, but with expertise and experience, the images off this camera can be amazing.
I love filming with the Canon 5d and over the last year I believe that I have found the best ways of shooting with this camera.
