After being stuck in lockdown for a while now it was great to be shooting again. I was tasked to join a team to film at the former military rehabilitation centre at Headley Court in surrey which reopened recently, not as a recovery centre for the limbless or the battle scarred, but as a recovery centre for the patients of Coronavirus. The Seacole Centre as it is now named has opened to cater for Covid patients and others who need help with their recovery.
Another short VT from my Archive is this fun shoot with Mike Bushell from BBC Breakfast. Shot in an afternoon with Western Riding Trainer Bob Mayhew, this piece was edited by Breakfast and featured on a Saturday morning. Great fun shooting this although I really wanted to give the riding a go too!
The task was simple… Turn up at the right time, gain vehicle access to a restricted area, meet up with Mike, learn the rules to a new sport, film enough footage for a 4 minute feature on 3-a-side tennis including 3 interviews and Voxes, stay hydrated, record voiceover in the car, edit and transmit… All in a day’s work
