Royal British Legion Youth Band Brentwood – Blaze Away (flash mob)

My first attempt at shooting a flash mob while a student at SAE Institute London. Fellow student (and mother of one of the percussionists) Susan Cormack was producing the video and asked me to be director and cam operator. I then edited and colour graded the final result.

As with all learning experiences, many things went wrong – some of the footage was over-exposed, about 2-3 of the camera ops were not prepared when the flash mob began, and I found there was not enough footage in sync for the final edit (this is always an issue with flash mob videos, I’ve noticed).

We shot the band at two locations over two days in Brentwood. They were absolutely fantastic kids!
