Churches, Choirs, Cellos, Candles
Two films I made in 2016 for the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Choir of Kings College Cambridge. Shot relatively close together in the run-up to Christmas they both work in relatively low light and were turned around very quickly.
The Choir of Kings College Cambridge wanted to produce a music video to accompany an album release. In half an hour at the beginning of the day's rehearsal the choir, led by Stephen Cleobury, performed the piece to playback a handful of times leaving me and my small crew to try and get coverage to piece this video together.
For the Philharmonia we recorded a cello octet performing an arrangement of Silent Night. Working around the microphones and in a very cold church, we managed to capture something that looked warm, natural and seasonal.
