As ever guys – the full blog is over at my website: http://www.fergusford.com/blog
Since getting back to the UK, it feels like I just haven’t stopped!
In between shooting weddings, family portraits, my first feature film – oh, and the arrival of our first son, you can understand I have been pretty busy. So busy, in fact, that I have been utterly rubbish about posting my work up on the blog…which I intend to address right now.
With the wonderful Leah and Simon.
I had only been back a few weeks when Leah called me and asked if I were free to shoot a video for the big day. I, of course, jumped at the chance. We met up in our local pub and instantly hit it off. They are a LOVELY couple; Simon wickedly funny – Leah refusing to take any of his stick. It was obvious from the get go that this was going to be a very, very fun day.
I wasn’t wrong.
The weather was perfect; the guests well behaved, Leah looked stunning and Simon didn’t disappoint on his speech one bit. In all, a wonderful wedding, and I hope they treasure the video for years to come. Good luck guys!!
Another crazy week has gone by, and I have a load to share with you all. But before I do, I MUST tell you all about the very exciting project that is coming up.
This Thursday, my first ever film as Director of Photography ‘The Estranged’ is premiering, and I am super excited. It was a collaboration between three film houses – Forgemasters Films, Superplex Productions and Dogged Films. The result is a very funny, very slick twenty minute short, which is a send up of all the family 90s movies of the time. Think Beethoven, Honey I shrunk the Kids – you get the idea. Big characters with a fantastic orchestral score underpin a heartfelt story of one brother trying to reconnect with another.
It’s comedy – believe me.
It was a real slog to get so much done in the very strict time frame we had (just 5 days filming) and it has been very odd to only do the cinematography and not the edit. I usually have full control of how my work ends up, but I am more than confident that the film will look great and pull together as a strong piece of work.
I know most readers of this are from far afield, but if you fancy a good fun night out with some beers and a comedy gem this Thursday (28th Nov), you can book your tickets through the website: www.theestranged.co.uk.
Hope you can all make it…it’s gonna be a blast 😉
