People of Interest. Issue #1
We are living through quite tough times. No I’m not talking about the economy when I say that, I mean a society which celebrates posers, the pretentious, one where people are famous for being famous. People of interest (P-oint) magazine aims to put an end to that, we simply aim to give people who have an amazing talent a platform where they can be featured and display their work for others to appreciate, with no catch. Each issue will be different from the previous one because talent is in all places and we want to explore as many as we can. Our second focus will be to have guest writers, people who have something to say which needs to be heard wether we agree with them or not. The guest writers can base their article on any topic as long as they have a passion for that topic and can write about it in a way that will inspire others.
How beneficial was it working with a production crew made up of people you know ? I found it really beneficial working with a small group of trusted people I had gotten to know over my time spent at University and working in industry. It really came about through friends helping each other out where everyone involved I’d drafted in after working with them previously on different projects. What was it like shooting with a HDSLR? the shooting experience was very enjoyable, despite the usual stress that comes with making a film, particularly on such a low budget. It was very easy to plan out the process and with the DOP and myself both operating an HDSLR camera each, we were able to work extremely efficiently and gain everything we needed for the film in a very short space of time.
