Al got involved in
video by jumping in at the deep end........as usual. He organised a
six camera shoot for Oysterband's '25th Anniversary Concert' at The
Forum in London, got a copy of Final Cut Pro, and over the next 3 months
learnt how to edit, create special effects and author DVDs. A year after
the show itself the 2 hour DVD was in the shops and the distributors
wanted an NTSC version to release in North America. Since then Al's
made a DVD for the Levellers, a short film for charity, a handful of
music videos and is now planning a Pilates' workout DVD.
Al recently won an
award for his work on a DVD for the new Royal Alexander Childrens' Hospital.
This involved location sound recording, working with Stomp on their
involvement with the film and mixing the final soundtrack. He's also
won awards for his work with Terrier TV and Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Other sound to picture clients include Disney TV, Hullabaloo Choir,
Oysterband, Channel 4, and the BBC.
