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/
