A continuation of the ambient story-telling, mostly looking down. And yes, that’s in Kuwait.
Shot with DJI Phantom 4 pro at 4K.

Kind of a fun horror-styled ambiance film. Sot at Kuwait scrapyard, which is located far in the middle of the dessert.
Shot with BMPCC, Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 at Salmy Junkyard, Kuwait. Edited with FCP X with Magic Bullet Looks and some ClumplePop Film grain and Light effects.

Shot during the first hours of the morning by the beach at Fintas, Kuwait. It’s a Ramadan weekend, and the beach was actually crowded by people who chose to have their Suhoor (late night supper) and stay a bit after the Fajer prayer before the sun makes the place to hot to stay longer. The dusty atmosphere made the lighting a perfect shooting opportunity.
Shot with a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera and a Lumix G 14-42 mm lens. The raw footage was edited with Adobe Premiere.

To watch the first Sahel
فيديو قمت بتصويره بلحظات الشروق الأولى على شاطئ الفنطاس في الكويت. صباح يوم جمعة رمضاني، حيث يزدحم الشاطئ بمرتاديه من عشاق السهر. الأجواء الصيفية المغبرة أضفت على التصوير جوا وألوانا مميزة، كما أنها أطفأت من حرارة الشمس المشرقة… قليلا.

The Ship Graveyard is a well-known spot to photographers in Kuwait. It is located in Doha area at the west shore of Kuwait Bay. I went there to accompany my wife who was doing a feature about the place for Kuwait Times newspaper. If you need more information about the place the piece she wrote should be your first stop:
I used my GoPro Hero 3+ in 1080p wide Protone setting. I used SwiftCam G2 handheld gimbal to steady the shots, which worked fine, it just that the shots were not steady enough to call it a professional result. But given the wind of that day and the muddy floor of the beach I would say that it was more than fine. Additional Lock n Load stabilisation was used in Adobe Premier Pro.
It’s been a while since I shot and edited any heavy videos, so my skills might almost be as rusty as the ships you see in this video! But I hope you enjoy it anyway.

I’ve shot many films of Birmingham during the 7 years I spent living in it, you can find them here, but this film is kind of special to me because I can relate to those ordinary nights, there is a personal bond to the places and people appearing in it.
Shot with a hand held Black Magic Pocket with Leica Summicron 50mm f/2. It’s my first edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015, and marks my comeback to Premiere after some long many years of working with Final Cut Pro. I kind of pushed the ProRes 422 codec to the limits with the colour grading of some scenes, but the results are not bad in my opinion, although a faster lens (and a monopod) could’ve helped a bit.
