Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

I was invited by Mark McKillop to visit behind the scenes of one of BBC Scotland’s long running soaps, River City.

I actually worked with Mark in 1982 at a company called Flashback Video.

I managed to use the well known “Oyster Cafe” for my interview with Mark, everything you see has been built from the ground up as a permanent set to film River City.

The interview was produced on two GH5’s running at 4K 50p and a third wide camera the FZ2000 running in HD 200Mbps. It will be edited on an HD timeline.


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.
