Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


We went to Sean Fallon’s home during 2011 to do an interview with him for my son’s blog The Footy and today I discovered he had passed away this morning.

Sean was a good friend of my fathers which gave us access to a Celtic legend that would have been impossible otherwise. Sean was a very kind man, when I was a wee boy my father was best friends with both Sean Fallon and Jock Stein, we used to visit their houses at least once a week and thought nothing of it.

My love and best wishes to Myra and all her children in these hours of sadness.

Today I would like to share this 20 minute tribute to Sean Fallon as he was one of Scottish Football’s true legends. It was filmed with a Sony NX70 and a Sony FS100.

For a different account of this interview why not go over to Scotts blog…


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.

  1. Great example of the benefits of a straight backed chair for interviews. Can’t say I like the yellow gel for background at all.

  2. Wonderful genuine man who stayed with my grandmother Waters when he arrived to play for Celtic.
    I met Sean many times over the years and he always asked with affection about my mother and father and other family members.
    A life lived beautifully.

  3. Well done. wonderful to have these recorded memories. Sean so valued the Celtic fans and lets hope the club and players can follow his principles.
    What a lovely tribute to a lovely fellow sligoman.
