Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

It was an interesting afternoon filming at “The Loft” a smashing pub in the west end of Glasgow. My son Scott had set up an interview with Dan Brennan (above) a Russian translator who by chance translates for quite a few famous Russian footballers. His tails were very interesting.

This was my setup, one roving Sony MC50 and one static Sony 550 on the tripod, same camera with a domestic badge and a new Rode Videomic Pro sitting just out of shot, though the roving camera caught the mic on occasions, it added to the “liveness” of the situation. As usual I film 1080 50i because you don’t have any options with the MC50/550 but I will convert the footage into 720 50P Apple Pro Rez during the edit.

Times are changing fast and Scott is pioneering video within the football blogging fraternity this is his second interview in two weeks and as long as his costs are kept to a minimum then he will surpass his fellow bloggers by miles by the end of 2011.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
