So, the Coldplay music video is in the can after this morning’s shoot. I was a little apprehensive about the day, a little worried that nobody would turn up. I had fifteen people who’d volunteered to appear in the video and I wasn’t too surprised when more than a handful of them didn’t turn up.

The fact that I didn’t have a full cast meant that the story will fall very short of what I was wanting. It means I’m going to have to spend more time on the edit!! This is of course a disappointment and especially after Ellie who was playing the lead in the video had spent hours rehearsing and memorising the lyrics to the Coldplay track. Lesson learnt – work with actors and never rely on family and friends!!

Having said that, I was delighted with the performance of Ellie in the lead role. She was extremely professional and convincing in the part. An achievement considering that this was her first time in front of the camera.

Those that did turn up made the filming fun and I was very grateful for their patience and for giving up a few hours of their time to help a fledgling movie maker.

Many thanks to Aiden Hirst, Heidi & Ellie Holdsworth, my mum and dad, Leigh Boyes, Hazel Chambers, Colin Green, Jacqui Blay, Jacqui Deaves and Jen.

To get a feel of how the morning went I’ve included a short video montage with this blog entry. The finished edit will be available to see on You Tube very soon.

Many thanks for visiting.
