I was asked by Chris Grist of CMG Promotions/ZUM Records to shoot & edit a 70 minute piano recital by Warren Mailley-Smith at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square. This is a 3 minute taster of the resulting DVD which went on sale. Interviews as ‘DVD extras’ were also shot with Warren.
Due to the restricted nature of the budget, a pretty impressive result was achieved using three fixed and one operated camera, with moves being put in during the edit.

A simple shoot of this 4 part harmony group, recorded on a stereo pair of condenser mics.
Tell Me On Sunday are Rick Leigh, Gabe Holland, Millie Holland & Daisy Holland.
Live recording: one take, no edits or sweetening (just a little compression).

Yes, it was me singing a delusionally triumphant yet doomed ditty, walking down a corridor of the World Cup greats, blinking into oblivion as the half-hearted incompetents in the England team crashed out of the 2010 competition in South Africa.
It’s trickier than you think to stay on a green screen treadmill for 4 minutes with no handrail worrying about the focus, composition of the shot and the expression on your face!
Challenging to put this one together – mucho mucho graphics.
Words/music: Crispin Holland. Producer Michael Wolff.
