Stephen The Presenter;

This is a bit of different take on my video portraits. Stephen asked me to film some footage for his showreel so I decided to do a more upbeat video, showing his more playful side. 

What do you think? I’ve gotten quite a good response from this, people seem to like the upbeat nature. Hmmmm, it’s making to rethink what direction my video portraits should go in. I didn’t pay too much attention to it when I’d finished, I felt my editing was a bit sloppy, but the perfectionist in me doesn’t allow me to like my own work that much.

My Video Portrait Series
This is something I have been planning since last summer while I lived in Vancouver. 

My Motivation: Mannerisms. I love how people move. Each person has unique way of moving, a twitch, a smile. The video portrait is to highlight those little movements of in 60 seconds as opposed to one still that, in my opinion, doesn’t always capture the essence of someone.

My first teaser is this one with presenter Stephen Byrne. It wasn’t planned, but it was shot in Temple Bar in Dublin. I have another one on the way and hopefully I will begin working with more models and take on some commissions.

I’ve gotten such a lovely response so far, it has shocked me a bit I must say. Let the creativity continue. I’m having fun with this.
