Just a few bits and bobs to sort out and I’m about ready for heading off to the Peak District filming – again. I’ll be off hiking for around 6 days on this trip and with my planned route my pack will weigh a few kilos to start off with. I’m not intending on picking up supplies until Monday or Tuesday.
Plus, some new gear I’ve recently purchased to give me some more dynamic camera work has added around 2 kilos on my back – the results are worth it though, or at least I think so.
You can see the effect I’m after in some of the opening shots to the video below featuring Lapwing Barns in the Peak District. Lovely place this and with a claim to fame, too. Keira Knightly and some other actors stayed here for a couple of weeks when shooting for The Duchess in the Peak Park.
And the other video is one I’ve produced for a client concerning Nordic Walking in the limestone dales of Derbyshire and occasionally the gritstone moors of the Dark Peak, too.
Finally, for this wander in the great outdoors I’ll be taking the Terra Nova Solar Competition 2 tent out for the first time. So, we’ll see how we get on. In the meantime, “stick around” and if you feel like having a chat don’t forget you can catch me on Twitter. Oh! And if you’re coming along to the social meet I’ve organised in the Peak District at the end of August – I’ll be submitting a blog post on final details for that upon my return next week.
