Hello there!

So this month I've been working on Cotswold Claptons edit. I've been waiting for feedback before I continue Wychwoods edit too. For the most part this has been one of those months where I just apply for work while working on a time consuming project, its getting there, but its a long edit as I'm doing my best to make sure there's no moments that aren't visually perfect in the edit. Also waiting for the audio to come back too. Otherwise not much is going on to be honest, I'm on hol...

Hello, so this month I have been working freelance for CommunicateTV again, and continue to do so, I enjoy the work and have been working for the likes of Bristol Council and many more clients through them. I will have some of my own projects coming up soon too, I will be making a documentary about a national monument with exclusive access, I can't wait! I've also got more work with Turf TV and a client I worked for not too long ago again too. I almost had a music video booked in too, we plan...

August Update

Posted by Liam Taylor on Friday, August 15, 2014, In : 2014 Blog Posts 
Hello, this month I filmed Swindon Pride (as seen below) this is unlisted at the moment as we're waiting to hear back from the festival, so enjoy the exclusive! We've also got some interviews to put up, including one with Marcus Collins, as well as Marcus Collins performance.

We're also editing the commercial we filmed last month, waiting for some voice overs currently and we'll be filming The Phoenix Festival again this year, but we're as of yet unsure how much of it we'll film.
We've also got...

June Update

Posted by Liam Taylor on Tuesday, June 17, 2014, In : 2014 Blog Posts 

This month I went back and edited an old project that the phoenix festival wanted near the time of their new festival. The video can be seen below

I next plan to edit more of the bands videos from there. There are a few bands like Henry Green I didn't get the chance with to edit their video. However, now that I have finished my HND (Level 5 qualification) in Interactive media from Swindon College (which qualifies me to make websites, video and most things digital) achieving near top mar...

What equipment should I use for my shoot?

Posted by Liam Taylor on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, In : 2014 Blog Posts 
That's a great question I recently answered. There is no right way to go about this, however you of course always need the basics. What we're using on our Video Production shoots lately which have been around Cirencester are:

A canon 650D (two if its a live event for example)

Tripod or two (a weifeng 100 is what we're using, but Manfrotto is also a good brand)

Shotgun mic or better yet if possible a clip on mic. Clip on's have the best audio quality for interviews, but sometimes a shotgun mic qu...

Hello, I have been working on editing footage from UPS systems and will be exhibiting at Isambard house in Swindon from the 21st of May until the 28th, otherwise there isn't much to say about this month, except some personal circumstances, where I will be finishing my HND course this month and then moving onto Television Production at the University of Gloucester in September.
So this month is mostly dedicated to a bit of advertising, which will hopefully result in some more local work!

I filmed and edited the video for Swindon Council Services, just waiting for the thumbs up to put it out there, we also received a testimonial from a client that I am currently not allowed to say (should change soon) but I will say they're famous for investing and insurance.
Also filmed a video which shows how over 50's should not do certain excuses, filled with tips and helpful content

I will soon be filming at the Wvyern theater again, so as always I've been quite busy! I would also li...

Hello, so an update for January is due.

This month I filmed at the Oxford Playhouse which was quite exciting, I had to operate two cameras by myself due to budgets but I was just about able to manage by using one camera as a static while operating the other for some close-up shots. It turned out quite nicely and all the edits are already being sent off.
There is also some new projects in the works and some personal success where I may be studying television production at the University of Glou...

November and December

Posted by Liam Taylor on Monday, December 2, 2013,
Hello, sorry for the lack of updates!

Still busy editing a lot of footage, however I haven't had much time to do it as I was recently commissioned to review a "NowTV box" which was a great opportunity for myself. Also will be filming the 40th anniversary of Swindon Viewpoint on the 20th of December which I am looking forward to! Event details for which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/events/692388034105021/

Other than that I am editing a lot of projects, some I am just waiting for cl...

A few updates, Bill Masters videos are still in post production (most are done now) along with a birthday party and the media make up show from Swindon College students. We tried something a little extra and new for this, a live feed to the internet http://www.ustream.tv/channel/heatsproductions

The most time consuming part of any videographers time is definitely the editing. It can take weeks, even months to do a professional edit especially when juggling many commitments.
We also dona...

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. I don't think I'll be able to upload the footage though, but if possible I definitely will. The show was called "The Swin...

Swindon College and The vooz

Posted by Liam Taylor on Thursday, September 13, 2012, In : 2012 Blog Posts 
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...
