Look at this snazzy thing my phone did without asking me. Kind of cool.

I believe it was rather Google+' Auto-Awesome than your phone ... :)

All the best for 2014!

Last weekend I went filming with Olly Newport in Oxford, to make a promotional video about Feathercoin at their second meetup.

"I don't have the budget right now, but I might do for future jobs, could you do this one for me for free and..."

What often ends this sentence is predictable but can often be insulting and, at times, infuriating. As a freelance videographer it's something I often hear, more times than I actually get offered a financial reward in exchange for my services. I would say that the video and film industry is in a race to the bottom, but that would be suggesting that we're not already there, when in actual fact we're in the basement. We've gone subterranean when it comes to getting paid to do our jobs.

Reliably recording coding demos and presentations for event videos can be tricky. I've written a new blog post as part of my video production for events series that provides a great method of solving this headachey problem!

Published the latest guide in my video production for tech event organisers series. It's all about preparing speakers presentations for video, how best to capture the slides, format them and insert them into video!
