NOTE: This is not a Mediawerx production.

I've joined Team Acoustic Wave as their Cinematographer for this year's 2Weeks2MakeIt competition run by South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network.

There are 21 filmmakers/teams competing this year; each randomly paired with one of the 21 musicians/acts with only two weeks to shoot a music video!

We've been paired with Sheffield's very own "The Clench" and we're working with "Get Down"; the first track from their new, self-titled album.

Starting on Friday 31st March; we have until the 14th April to shoot, edit and deliver our finished music video.

I'm shooting with our Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera 2.5k MFT, our Pocket Cinema Camera and I'm joined by Marc with his Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera 2.5k EF.

We shot the band at their practice session on Monday 3rd April and we have a few locations scouted and ready for the main shoot this weekend!

Here's a few behind the scenes shots from the impromptu session on Monday evening:
