Next steps

15 Jun

I have managed to finish the music for my montage film from the Radio Fox Birthday night. I thought the music would take me forever to do as it normally takes me a long time to put something together. On this occasion it took a matter of an hour and half, which surprised me, maybe I should adopt the method I used here; finding random loops, listen to them and then add them.

Well here is the film, nothing too fancy.

My next objective is to make a film for a friend of mine, who after seeing my radio film wants my help, which I have agreed to. In addition, I will be helping out a director shot a film in the region. This is to start next week, hopefully lots to report.

Radio Film

17 May

AT LAST, AT LONG LAST, ITS FINISHED.

Hi Folks

After working on my film project for the past 4-5 months it is finished. The film itself was finished back in March, it was the music that was such a nightmare. Hopefully, you like it and can hear it too.

If you could watch it and either like, or leave me your thoughts, that would be awesome. I have two more film ideas in the pipeline, and I am in the midst of planning them along with some foreseeable future feature film. I know what I am doing isn’t Cannes or Oscar worthily material, but at least it can be part of my portfolio. One thing that surprised me was the guys at my local Apple store want to have a copy of my film to showcase during their lessons on FinalCut Pro. I admit FinalCut did seem complicated at first, but when I got used to it, it was awesome!

Watch, comment, rate and enjoy.

Radio Rocks

1 May

Another week has come and gone, though last Tuesday was awesome with the Radio Fox party, and it was marked with awesome weather. I think the next party the station has should be held at the Leicester Tigers stadium as it is across the road from the hospital. Once at Fox, meeting other presenters I have never met, I left to get some requests from Ward 5 for the half an hour me Liz and Arti were gonna be on-air. I thought I should add a video of when we were on air, and how enthusiastic I was during that time.

Still working on the music for the fox film that after 4 months of working on is completed. One thing I am trying to get is the GarageBand jam packs, does anyone know where to get them, I have tried Amazon and there is not much of a selection on the site. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to leave a comment. Here are some photos of the night too.

Rock DJ’s Party

23 Apr

Today of this week marks the anniversary date for the radio station that I volunteer at, Royal Infirmary, 25 years from today was when the studio was created and in recognition of this me, the studio director and all the other presenters are gonna party all of today and tonight, which I am so looking forward to. Armed with cameras (photo and flip) lots of pics and footage will be captured and made into a short film of the night. I can at long last (after 4 months work) say that my Radio Fox Film is finished, I am just getting the music sorted so when it is done it will be here for you to watch, on the new radio fox website and of course Youtube. When its up, please watch and leave me your thoughts. Until then keep checking back. 🙂

Fantastic Miss Radio Fox

1 Nov

I know I’m playing with the film title of Mr. Fox, but on this occassion it has to be said, as Liz and I have a newbie who started at Radio Fox on Sunday, and I have to admit that was a surprise for both us as we didn’t know about this. It felt good going back after about a week of being away and seeing all the new music we’ve got, I only hope we get LMFAO’s new track ‘I’m Sexy & I Know It’. If you haven’t heard it yet, go onto Youtube and listen. So instead of there jsut being me and Liz on the mic Hannah our newbie joined in, I also showed her how the system works for finding music and the enormous selection of vinyls and cds.

Because it was the Sunday before Halloween we decided to add in a few Halloween songs, both oldies and ones with a somewhat relation to. Whilst at Radio Fox I surprised Liz with a birthday cake and a toffee apple crumble as we both share the same birthday 1st November. So while on air cake was eaten and topics were discussed., and the two hours went by so fast. Though next week I won’t be radioing as I am filming an American football game in Staffordshire, which I really bumped up about, I just hope I don’t mess up and I get it right. Either way I’ll let you know

One woman show

4 Jul

What I mean by that is because Liz, my radio mentor, had this Sunday off I was in charge of the two hour show we do together, Sunday Sounds. It was exhausting going round two wards and getting back in time for the show. Because we were on auto-pilot I managed to put everything on manual use, all except the presenters mic, so for the first few seconds there was silence. Thankfully I clocked on why and just got on with the requests and other music I’d decided to play. It is hard to talk about anything on the radio when your alone in the studio. So I came away unscaved, and was greeted by comments from messages I got from other presenters saying well done. Lets see what happens next Sunday when Liz comes back.
