This is a short documentary I made at college, over the course of two days shooting.
I was camera operator of the main camera (not the ghost cam)
I know it's not great but, tell me what you think.

Over all very very good. Looks the same as any of those shows like Haunted Britain, and that's a compliment since you don't work on those shows. You equaled their production value, no question. The piece looks like some thing I would see on cable TV. Again, that means it's good.
A very interesting piece to watch as well. Nice work.

I would have been completely alright with the dark, the ghost (I do believe in ghosts), and with being deep underground. But I could absolutely NOT stand being within 50 yards of the mannequins, you're a much braver man that me!

Shooting in the caves was an educational experience as it doesn't matter how much theory you know, the practicality of these things are a whole different thing. It's called an industry for a reason, it's often a case of the getting the work done and getting it out there, not faffing around on something for months on end worrying if it's good enough.
Lighting was such an issue on the day, as some bright spark managed to break the XLR powered lights leaving us with just torches, which along with the camera battery went dead quick enough in the cold conditions.
Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
But yeh. Just thought I need to start posting more work on here.. I'm starting to come across as all talk and not much else lol Will try and post a recent studio programme I lit before christmas. (Have to get tapes back, digitise etc.)
