Apologies for not posting yesterday, I don’t feel very inspired at the moment! I’ll be sure to write a post on what inspires me next week.
So, now on to the seventh post in this series. I’ve been so busy the last few weeks. This week has been quiet (thankfully). I got an interview date for a Photography course (it’s on the 29th) so I’ve tried to put together a portfolio for that, I’m going to get prints tomorrow so I’m nearly finished. I need to plan and shoot one more project and print it and I’ll be finished. Chai Media finished filming Aisling Conlan last week so we need to get editing on that soon! The photography studio where I’m interning asked us to film a promotional video for them so I wrote a proposal for that the other day, I need to edit it and see what they think.
Busyness is good :D
How has your week been?
PS: I followed back all my followers (that’s a mouthful!) to show my appreciation, thank you!

So this week has been hella busy, I’m interning two days a week at The Picture Rooms, learning about marketing, social media and studio photography. I was given media marketing notes from one of the girls who works there (her BA Journalism notes but they’re good for our business!). I need to read them and see if they’re going to be any good, hopefully they can help.
Tomorrow, we’re starting principal photography on our documentary with Aisling Conlan. We were supposed to shoot today but that fell through, we’re shooting tomorrow and Sunday instead. This campaign is going to be so good, I’m really excited to start filming and working on it. Aisling lives in one of the most beautiful coastlines in the country (her house is literally on the edge of cliff!) and that view to the fact that she is genuinely the most humble person I know and you’ve got yourself a good documentary interview!

I’ve just come back from consulting with Irish canoe slalom athlete, Aisling Conlan. We are now in pre-production for a documentary video we’re shooting with her next week. I’ve known Aisling since I was 14 so getting her to talk and give us what we want won’t be hard! We’re going to forgo the traditional route of most videos about kayakers and let her tell her story: she has a really interesting background and we want to showcase that. While she was growing up, things were hard, but she’s come through that to become who she is now. She’\s come through adversity and is now one of the top elite canoe slalomers in the world. And she’s totally humble about it to boot! We’re going to shoot some footage of her kayaking and then film an interview with her in her house so we can have some variety in the shots. We’re also going to shoot some photographs of her and a video portrait. So we can showcase her and showcase what we can do, that we’re not one-dimensional.
This should be great, we’re getting so many ideas for it already. The finished video itself will be on our Vimeo page within the next few weeks so I’ll let you know when it goes up!
Have you ever seen any documentaries on sports-people? What did you think?

So this week in a nutshell: we got confirmation of our company registration paperwork having gotten to the right people so that’s epic. We finished editing an advertisement. We did a location recce for our next shoot. I broke two frames in work and had to re-hang nine photos… I met up with friends last night for dinner and got to see my boyfriend after a week
MY BEST FRIEND IS HOME ON SATURDAY!
Well, as you may have guessed, I’m in the middle of setting up a production company with my friend Chesney (Chai Media, the link to our Facebook page is in the sidebar, please oblige us and like us!). We’re in the middle of shooting an ad at the moment so when it’s edited, we’re going to join Vimeo and that’s where all our videos will go. (I’ll probably link that in the sidebar too, later).
I have so many conceptual photo shoot ideas in my head… I need a willing model… and time, lots of time…
I’m thinking of changing the name of this blog too… to something that better expresses what I’m working in now… I need to have a thinking session!
