Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


Producing a full blown cooking show at least once a week needs your help as I am not getting paid for producing these productions. Yes JVC are down as a sponsor but no money has changed hands only some well needed kit.

All I am asking you to do is hit the SUBSCRIBE button on my YouTube channel

There is also a web site to compliment the programs at

Most programs are made with 5-6 cameras, a wide to cut back to (Panasonic GH4R), a tighter shot for the presenters with XLR inputs (JVC LS300) with 2 RODE link mikes one on each presenter. A Panasonic GX8 for run and gun, a Panasonic GH4 tight product shot and Panasonic FZ1000 for an over head shot and a DJI OSMO for remote shots.


Note the vast use of Panasonic micro four third cameras, this is to make sure most shots match as good as the JVC LS300.


Coming up next week is the beautiful Rasha who shows us how to make Pizza from scratch, something I admit I have never done myself.

So hopefully by the end of the next 24 hours my SUBSCRIBER count will be a lot better than 4, thanks to my readership we are now up to 49 and climbing, thank you all. Here is my latest production with my ex boss 30 years ago, Chris Attkins who used to be a senior cameraman at STV.


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.
