Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

When you pull resources like the BBC, SKY and ITV you get a fantastic HD wall to wall coverage of the Royal Wedding. Some of the shots were incredible especially the wide shots in the abbey itself.

Some fantastic wide shots, my hat off to the producer for this and many interesting camera angles throughout the six hour marathon.

My favourite shot of the day was this one a chap riding one of the horses had some unruly hairstyle which was unusual then I noticed this shot and I nearly fell off my chair…he was the double of Harpo Marks.

All kidding aside we were treated to this spectacular HD production largely due to the efforts of Sony, Panasonic and Ikegami HD cameras produced in Japan within the last 3 years, so hats off the the Japanese workers who are going through tough times and say a big “thank you” for supplying todays HD technology.


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.
