9 Weeks 

12 Festivals

It's been another busy and fun filled summer on the road working with Got Soul Films on UK Live's 'Let's Rock The Retro Festival', 'Sunday Sessions' and 'Penn Fest' festivals around The UK, calling at Cookham, Norwich, Bristol, Sunderland, Leeds, Scotland, Exeter, Southampton, Shrewsbury and Penn.

Starting at the end of May and lasting all the way through to July the UK Live festivals make up a huge part of the Got Soul/Fluxx family. We all love music so getting to spend the weekends listening to acts like Example, Lethal Bizzle, Aswad, Sister Sledge, Kaiser Cheifs and many (many!) more is amazing.

Sean Delahay project manages the project for Got Soul and between a combination of videographers and directors Got Soul/Fluxx cover the events with 2 videographers shooting on a variety of different kit and techniques to keep the output exciting. The ever inventive and superb videographer Matt Lesniewski even bought along his amazing helmet cam for some amazing 1st person shots on a few of the shoots!

We try and make all the edits fun and different to what the festival had before getting us involved by creative use of transitions and a few different techniques.

Check out one of the edits from this year below to get a flavour of what the finished content looks like!

Here is to more festivals and more fun next year. 

Filming @ Lumina Learning Global Conference, Brighton

A few weeks back Barney was invited to film the Lumina Learning 3 day Global conference at The Grand in Brighton after being recommended by our good friend and client Clive Lewis from Globis . To find out more about what Lumina do check out their website here:  www.luminalearning.com

We didn't have loads of time before the conference but a few really productive group Skype calls with the Lumina team established what we needed to accomplish which was essentially 3 things 

1. To film and edit all the presentations throughout the 3 days (roughly 5/6 hours of film a day)

2. Shoot and edit promotional content to be released as a separate edit after the conference 

3. Shoot interviews as further promo content

We opted to rent 2 x GH5 cameras to film the presentation content as they have no 30 minute recording limit and great battery life (2 things the Sony a7sii lacks)

Fat Lama is a brilliant resource for last minute rentals by the way.

So it was a really busy 3 days! But it was also a lot of fun and Barney had great support from the in house Lumina media team Josh, Emma and Amelia (Big Thanks!) 

Lumina do conferences a bit differently and even had a 'Vibe Master' Tom Morley on site to create good vibes and lift the energy which he definitely did. At one point everyone from the conference played drums outside on Brighton beach which created some nice moments for the promo content!

We are now working on the edits for this and everything we captured turned out nicely. Lumina is a really interesting, cutting edge company and its great to be working with a global business.

Thanks to Lumina Learning for making Fluxx part of the family!

A Work in Progress; Skye Light

Firstly, Welcome to the first Fluxx Films Blog post! 

With this blog we aim to give a deeper insight into some of our projects and what we get up to, share techniques and talk about any new cool equipment we see. 

We are currently working on a really exciting project for artist Julia Christie who is based in the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Barney and Sean were shooting in Edinburgh for the 'Let's Rock' retro festival and decided to hire a car and make the extra 5 hour journey up to Skye to shoot something for Julia as we have wanted to work with her for a while. Julia has amazing talent and her artwork has a distinct, beautiful look to it.

Kit wise we took: 

2 x Sony A7sii, 2 x Crane 2, an FS5, Atomos External Recorder and a Mavic Pro drone and some nice lenses.

We wanted to tell the story of how Julia has changed her creativity since moving to Skye and how her environment has an impact on her technique and inspiration. 

Skye was absolutely amazing and Barney is now busy doing selects from the footage and building the backbone of the edit from the interview with Julia.

We want the finished film to be cinematic yet simple, to draw attention to the scenery and to Julia's art work and techniques.   

More updates to follow but we are really excited with how this one is shaping up. To find out more about Julia check out; http://www.juliachristie.co.uk/
