Another Sam Bridger special!
Last time it was the history of music fans (the people..), this time its about the five kaleidoscopic years between 1965 and 1970 that we refer to as Psychedelic music.
Psychedelic Britannia was on the BBC last night and hopefully it will stay on iPlayer for a little while longer than usual.
It was fantastic working with Sam again. This time we decided to have three different camera setups at our disposal. Whereas with the Fans documentary we utilised the Sony FS700 (with Odyssey7Q) as A camera and the Sony A7S as B camera we threw in a couple more toys into the mix.
The newest addition to my Sony family of cameras is the Sony FS7. This became our A camera and the FS700 slid down to become a B camera but rather than have it shoulder mounted we kept as small as possible turning it into more of a “hold in the hand” type camera. This left the Sony A7S and we decided to pair it with the DJI Ronin-M which we utilised for some of the live performances.
All in all the system worked really well. We shot it all in S-Log2 so as to best be able to match the cameras. Sam and I were really happy with the outcome and it was such a blast to bring this period of our musical history to life.
Below is a little clip taken from the finished film as well as a few BTS snaps
