Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

I had a superb day yesterday at the CVP Open Day at the BBC in Glasgow, Colin and the boys put on a great show which was appreciated by all the various production staff that attended.

The morning session was packed out as you can see with an excellent talk from CVPs technical expert Phil Myers followed by an interesting talk from BBC Scotland’s Dave Chalmers talking about HD acquisition.

I bumped into two cameramen friends, Ian Douglas and Ian Bodie who were very interested to see what CVP had to offer. Ian Bodie and myself worked for Clyde Cable Vision many moons ago.

This was my first encounter with CVPs 85 page magazine called the IRIS which retails for £5.95, it’s an excellent read and well recommended if you want to keep up to date with everything from Large Sensor cameras to Final Cut Pro. You can view an online version at…

I am producing a video about todays exploits so bear with me as I chop on my FCP-7 timeline, I hope to have the video available later on this week.



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.
