A music video I made recently for a band called Split Persons. Starring Raven Skye and filmed at locations in Kent. The lens flare look is used in the scenes with the band with lights pointing into the camera to give them a dark moody look. The lomo effect (replicating the old analogue cameras) was created in edit and is used for the beach scenes.
Mark Handley's latest video. Most of the footage was filmed by John Stewart. I added the finishing touches, creating the greenscreen shots with the help of George Chamberlain, Edward Hancock, Terry Payman and Jamie Green at SWIPE. I added some effects in edit to give the footage of the couples a retro Super 8mm Cine feel and voilà!
Fans of The Jam's Mod sound will love The Sha La La's. Here's a video I shot of them at Powerhouse Studios in Addlestone, Surrey.

A few weeks ago I was filming in Durham for Taskforce Field Marketing. The video was to showcase the launch of Stella Cidre Pear, distributed by AB InBev in Tesco stores across the UK.

Last month I was at RottieFest 2012, the annual fundraiser for Keythorpe Rottie Rescue.
It was a fun filled weekend of rottweilers and other dog breeds, great company, camping, a seminar from The DogFather (see below), fun events and competitions and the evening ended with a delicious hog roast.
I'm looking forward to the 2013 event already as it promises to be even bigger and better with live music, classes and demonstrations.
Thames Hospicecare held their Best of British Summer Fayre in early July. The day was opened by actress Sue Holderness (who plays Boycie’s wife Marlene in “Only Fools and Horses” and “The Green Green Grass”). There was something for everyone that day: a brass band, ferret racing, Morris Dancing, tug of war, a martial arts demonstration, stalls, prizes, face-painting and much more. The event took place at Windsor Girls’ School.
I went to RottieFest 2012 to film the event on that day. It was a great weekend, lots of lovely rottweilers, great company and a fantastic atmosphere despite the mud! A video of the day will be coming soon.
While there I bumped into The Dogfather Graeme Hall, a dog training and behaviour expert. He’s worked with over 1,700 dogs, is one of few dog trainers chosen by the Hollywood film industry, is highly recommended by vets and you'll often hear him on BBC Radio or read about him in magazines. He asked me to video the seminar he delivered that day and the clip below contains edited extracts.
Here’s what Graeme had to say about the video:
"I'm blown away with the video clip Robert produced for me at RottieFest 2012 covering my Seminar there. He understood exactly what I wanted to achieve with the video. He shot the footage, edited it and produced the perfect video. Anything I wanted to change? Not a thing! It was uploaded and working for my business within 2 days of the shoot and without costing and arm and a leg. It takes an extraordinary skill - and not just in camerawork - To get it SO right so quickly. Clever guy!!"
