Camerawork

Bristol had its annual Harbourside festival over the past weekend, and it had all the necessary hallmarks of a proper 'Thiruvizha' or 'Ejjibijan': Food stall from all over the world, rides, lots of people, and of course, music.

Well, a friend of mine needed somebody to handle the roving camera to film one of the gigs. Having convinced myself that I had become a 'sound' person, I took up the job with a certain amount of circumspection. But, after all, camera-work is what I trained for in Loyola, and that what I started off doing anyway.

Just realised that I'd lost none of it! As the gig progressed, I started having more fun. The advantage of operating the roving camera is exactly that: It is roving! Yet, to look at framing, exposure, focal length and focus, was a change from looking at sound level, microphone proximity, frequency response, and tape saturation.

And yeah, I was quite impressed to see Raja Rammohan Roy's statue in Bristol!

Sat: It's like bike riding.. you never forget! BTW I was in Loyola (if that's what you're referring to) five years ago!

Twin-Gemini: The festival events took place all around the harbour: Lloyds amphitheatre, The Waterfront, The Grove etc.. The gig I filmed was in Queen's square!
Raja Rammohan Roy was a proper Bristolian.. he lived here for a while and eventually died here. In fact, the city council flies the Indian flag as well! (I am not so sure if it is still around)
