Reviews, Payments and Christmas!

Posted by Liam Taylor on Friday, December 21, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
Hello,
Just a quick post to say we've got some new reviews up of The Hobbit and The Walking Dead!

Also, as an expanding Gloucestershire/Wiltshire business, we've felt its necessary to be able to provide multiple ways to pay. With that in mind, next year when we're at your events we'll be able to take payment from Credit and Debit cards of these types: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club
Which is a huge step up for us in terms of convenience for our clients as I am sure none of...

Hello!
We've just updated our Testimonials, we've got some great recommendations from international and local businesses/bands
Can you "afford to not engage in our excellent services?"

Just to keep you updated with what I'm doing, recently I went to the Wyvern Theatre to help out Swindon College with filming an event put on by the Wiltshire Scouts! It was a great performance.

3D conversion to 2D re-releases

Posted by Liam Taylor on Monday, September 17, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
Hello,
I've been seeing a lot of films "converted" into 3D. Which is very distressing to see people spending money on this, so I thought I'd clarify a few things about 3D.
You simply can't convert a 2D film into a 3D film. It has to be filmed in 3D, what hollywood tend to do with these is include their logo as the 3D part of the film, you'll then notice only the occasional part that appears to be 3D and the only reason for this is because of some blurring and some movement of the image. This te...

Swindon College and The vooz

Posted by Liam Taylor on Thursday, September 13, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
Hello
I am now attending Swindon College doing a HND in Interactive Media. The course so far seems quite well built with friendly staff and students who seem to be similar to myself. However the traveling is quite a chore since I am from Cirencester and its very exhausting but for a HND and the skills I'll be able to bring to this business and else where in my own life is definetly worth it. They never said it would be easy

I will soon be directing and producing a music video for the vooz's son...

Hello, It seems we have people stealing our content already. We take this as a compliment as the only reason you would steal content or ideas without asking for permission is because of its high quality or creativity.
In anycase we now also have someone else writing the odd film review or two for us, so keep an eye out when we launch that part of the website very shortly! Keep up to date with our forum where we have and will continue to post helpful tips to all the aspiring videographers and p...

Hello! We're now running an affiliate program. We figure that many of the successful websites do this so considering the large amount of visitors to our website this was a natural step towards success.
I'm still working on some more reviews for when I launch that part of the website (so feel free to ask me to review your movie or t.v program!) and I can't wait until I do, i'm also thinking of having a comments section for each of the reviews so that I can get feedback and maybe open some debat...

Update

Posted by Liam Taylor on Saturday, July 7, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
Hello, in regards to my previous posts about University, the two places I hoped to attend have both been denied funding this year (typical) and one also didn't have enough students apply, so I shall no longer be pursing that path. Instead I will be aiming for an honours degree via a local college, I am awaiting responses on this. The good thing about this is that its cheaper and local.

In other news, as you can see I have updated the website a little bit and soon I will be writing reviews abou...

University

Posted by Liam Taylor on Monday, June 25, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
Hello,
After working locally I have been looking at the competition and decided that the best option for me is to go to higher education, its expensive but the experience and skills it will provide will be more than beneficial for this business.
Its a 2 year course with a possible third year depending on my final grade.
I am looking forward to this and using the skills I will gain to benefit the business. I will also gain more industry experience working with cameras and directing projects.

Hello,

Hey everyone,

So we've now got hoodies for ourselves for when we're out shooting and our shoulder mount has arrived, its very good and very comfortable! Can't wait to put it to use!

We're also looking into some financing, because theres only two more things we need to be fully kitted out and they are a bit out of our price range. Going to a meeting t...

Wootton Bassett Rocks! Promotion Project

Posted by Liam Taylor on Wednesday, January 4, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
We've acquired permission, all thats left to do is add the right information to text in the project, export it and upload it, which the last two will most likely take a whole day (Exporting and uploading are both time consuming as with any video)
So look out for another post within the next few days!

Thanks for reading!
