At last I have got my film of the Bristol Cream 2016 tour to Marseille ready and here it is. It speaks for itself really but I haven’t gone to the trouble of giving it any credits in itself so perhaps I should just say that I pretty much used up 98% of whatever I shot and made some use of some fairly random elements. The music comes from French composer Olivier Messiaen’s Fêtes des belles eaux. As far as I know Messiaen has no connection with Marseille but he is French so that should be ok. If I could be bothered I would make some slight adjustments but sorry I can’t take or leave it – you never know there may be a sequel.
last year i mentioned that i was going to brazil and that i would post something relevant afterwards. it’s taken a long time mainly because the source material i brought back was very limited. a lot of the time i didn’t want to take my camera around with me as it’s an old-fashioned digital still camera that allows you to take short videos about 1.30 maximum length. well eventually we had a reunion night last week and so at the last minute i downloaded the scraps of footage i’d brought back and cobbled them together. there’s a dark middle section which is just from the window of the flat where i was staying and i cut a lot of that bit out although maybe i’ll do a remix sometime with more of that in.
the opening shots are from a football tournament we participated in on june 22nd 2014 and there is some better quality footage of this event which was shown on norwegian tv and that’s below.
