Bloomin' lovely - Philip Bloom - Web Broadcast

This current assignment is Web Broadcast.  We get a genuine excuse to watch You Tube for seven weeks.

We are tasked with producing three presentations about Web Broadcast, focusing on one or two particular broadcasters.  The three presentations cover Voice, Audience and Technology.

Rob reccommended I take a look at Philip Bloom, a Director and DP who reviews camera equipment on his website.  The videos are hosted on Vimeo, which are embeded into his site.  He also has a You Tube channel.

So I have taken to stalking the man for the last week and a half, in the name of research,  I have been watching his reviews and tutorials as well as his personal projects.  I've also subscribed to him on facebook and am following him on twitter.  I have spent more time with this man than I have my own husband (well he is galavanting around Europe filming slebs, millionaires and glamour models for the Cannonball 2000 rally).  I think I've fallen a bit in love with him.

For the first presentation, this tuesday, I have been analysing 'Voice'. This is the character of the broadcaster, the production quality and schedule.  I have used footage from Bloom's Vimeo channel and pictures from his blog, cutting a 4 minute film that will run silently in the background (as specified in brief) while I present my research.

I'll post the presentation with a voice over if/once I've got permission from Mr Bloom himself, as it's using all his work.

I will share this with you, 24 Hours of Neon, a very gorgeous piece of timelapse genius shot from his hotel room window in Las Vegas.

Philip Bloom and assistant Sarah Estela - please get married! Can you imagine how gorgeous their babies would be?

I'll upload the completed work soon but I can say that I was awarded 70 points, just scraping a first ouch.
