The online home for all things Brockley (SE4), St John's, Ladywell, Nunhead and Telegraph Hill
Shallow DoF: check; vignette: check; twinkly background-music: check.
Wow, I should visit South East London sometime.
Cynical first comment: check!
Nice video, but complete absence of Brockley from what I could see.
Well that was bloody lovely.Timmy - I take it you've made something better than this? Or are you just a miserable git?
Come and see the Telegraph Hill Festival video this evening in the Hill Station at 8pm - which also probably does not feature Brockley...
Surely there must be a South-East geek out there who fancies listing the locations they've used in this video for those of us who aren't familiar with them all? Looks like there are a few places I need to check out. Please?!
I wanna live like common people.....
Looks nice. Shot on a Digital SLR no doubt. I'd guess a canon 5d or 7d. These cameras are really opening up high quality video for most people. Bet they didn't get permission to film in Greenwich park though. Ridiculously prohibitive filming fees for such things.
"Bet they didn't get permission to film in Greenwich park though."Another reason that DSLRs are pretty damn awesome - they just look like a regular stills camera, so people don't give you anywhere near as much hassle when you're filming in public places.But back to the video, very well produced and informative little piece :)
I couldn't agree more..
I know it the wrong thread but there's been a double shooting in East Dulwich, one person is dead according to the guardian.
Brilliant! The flying fickle finger of fate did hover for a second or two over Brockley on the overground map, but it really bigged-up Deptford. Hooray!
just to echo D's point, is there a list of all these places anywhere? I'm new to the area and i only recognised 2 of the locations...Must have cake!
ok, after literally 2 seconds of googling, i found it...http://www.gold.ac.uk/local/se-london-guide/
Ten to one it was produced by Goldsmiths' marketing department.
over egging it a bit though wasn't it?
For those who don't know all these places, locations include:- London Particular in New Cross Road- I think that's where the nice looking cakes were filmed.- Royal Albert - recognised the coffee cup with moustache among other things.- Birds Nest - the pizza place upstairs on a bus- Deptford Project - the cafe in a railway carriage.- Blossoming Together cafe at bottom of Tanners Hill.- New Cross House- Panda Panda- Cafe Crema in New Cross Road.
At Deptford market Peter's stall was pictured and the plant guy (can't remember his name)
Wellbeloveds was briefly shown.
I flicked through the visuals (don't have sound on my work computer) and some snappy editing seemed to conflate Telegraph Hill and Greenwich Parks.
Not if you listened to the commentary, Tamsin. I thought it was a good idea. I bet a lot of potential students from outside the area are worried about coming to SE London, and this will reassure them that there's more to the area than gangs and riots.I don't care if it was produced by the marketing department. Good on Goldsmiths for trying to anticipate student concerns. From the preliminary figures on applications released recently by UCAS, Goldsmiths will need to throw everything it's got into marketing this year to pull in enough students to keep afloat.
I'm not a miserable git - and no, I haven't made anything better - I'm just a bit tired of this style of DSLR-shot video which is choc full o' stylistic cliches. Much prefer the guerilla style of Meze Mangal.
I couldn't help but notice that most of the black people of south-east london appeared to have been edited out... :-(
The comment above seems to have most of its sense edited out.
not normally negative - maybe check the brightness of your monitor or get an eye test? I saw at least three or four black or mixed race contributors...
not normally negative - on a rough check, it is about 60% white commentators (i.e.ignoring non-speaking passersby/shopkeepers etc) and 40% non-white. It is also about 60% female commentators to 40% male.Make of that what you will.These are, of course, the students, and you might have been thinking of non-student residents (the passers-by and the shop-keepers). More difficult to keep track of those, but the passers-by seem to be representative of the community to me. The shop-keepers (and publicans) looked mainly white, except for the shots of Deptford High Street where they were mainly non-white.
