08 Dec A NEW TIME CAPSULE FILM & A GIVEAWAY
Our plans changed at the last minute over the weekend, so we had a free day to roam around London. The weather was divine… sunshine and shadows a plenty.
I had it in my head to make a film of our day, as a project to share in my up-coming course – A Year Of Creating Time Capsules.
As the day unfolds, I capture the moments witnessed and push myself to see the scenes differently from previous Time Capsule films. Trying alternative camera angles & interesting compositions to mix it up… but also looking for themes and repeating moments to thread throughout the film. The sunshine and shadows were a gift of the day, so I filled the frame with plenty of light… Also, being mindful to see the stories, routines and details, that make this month in our life unique, to lock up in a Time Capsule.
I edited the film on Saturday night, as the boys watched some random action film – Head phones on, laptop & blanket, with Bruce Willis saving some plane in the background. As I sorted through the footage, I wanted each moment to linger…Something about the way I was feeling… wanting to indulge in the sunshine, the movement, the little details of my family… also, it’s probably something to do with my current love of slow motion… so this film is nice & slow…
You can make a simple Day In The Life film during my online course – I share how you can capture your moments, edit them together to keep them forever.
My online course has been extended for 2015 – A Year Of Creating Time Capsules – so we can make more films by creating them regularly… inspiring each other along the way. There’s an amazing community forming, it starts next week and there’s still time to join in throughout December…
I know not everyone has the means to take part, so I’m launching a giveaway for TWO places – one place by leaving a comment here on the blog & one place by leaving a comment on my Instagram feed (this photo)…
Let me know what you would like to capture in a Time Capsule film next year.
I will announce the random winners on Thursday 11th Dec – All the best!
