Green Screen Shoot, Paul Wood Cameraman Manchester

Matt Stripe P Z Cussons

This was a recent green screen shoot with Matt Stripe, Chief Human Resources Officer for PZ Cussons Manchester. Due to Covid restrictions and convenience this green screen shoot was conducted away from the office at a location of Matt’s choice.

Andy provided auto cue and Matt is a great presenter so it was an easy job for me. Just a case of squeezing a 16 X 12 screen into a relatively tight space. The footage was shot for PZC’s London-based PR Agency.

Canon C300 on duty with the autocue and Sennheiser EW100 radio mic kit. Screen and kit provided by Procam Manchester as always.

The footage was keyed & edited in London ready for the PZ Cussons Capital Markets Day live stream shoot which I also shot later in Manchester at PZ Cussons HQ.

If you need a freelance cameraman based in Manchester or nationwide (I can travel), please get in touch. Paul

PZ Cussons AGM – Cameraman for Hire in Manchester

Just playing blog catch-up, this was a shoot from the PZ Cussons AGM late last year. Featuring three presenters, VT and graphics inserts. Dual cameras, autocue, Zoom participants all live streamed from PZ Cussons HQ near the airport in Manchester.

A week prior to the event I had shot a piece to camera with PZ Cussons CEO, Jonathon Myers. This was used as a VT insert during the live-streaming event and can be seen in the image below.

Always a bonus when you meet a CEO who is a natural presenter and Jonathon is very much that.

The AGM was shot on two Canon C300 cameras, one manned and one locked off. Three radio mics into a MIDAS desk and the studio was lit by LED light panels and Dedolights for accents. Autocue provided by Andy once more.

Always a huge pleasure to work at PZ Cussons, the staff are super helpful and friendly and the lunches are amazing!

McBride Live Stream Video – Cameraman Manchester

Working for a top London corporate PR agency I recently provided dual cameras, lights and sound for the wonderful McBride who are based in Manchester. McBride are the leading European manufacturer and supplier of Private Label and Contract Manufactured products for the domestic Household and professional cleaning/hygiene markets.

The shoot featured the relatively new CEO Chris Smith and CFO Mark in the studio, with live links from all the senior team across the world including the company Chairman in the US.

Canon C300s on duty, lighting from Lishuai and sound from MIDAS and Sennheiser. Gear carefully prepped and provided by the most wonderful Procam Manchester. One camera was locked to the wide whilst I operated the other for the close ups, moving when switched to the wide. No comms system necessary, we just used the force.

I operate as a freelance cameraman who is based in Manchester. I can supply any commination of personnel ands equipment to suit your project. Rates from £250 p/d. Please get in touch to discuss your corporate video requirements.

Great to work with Chris at McBride again and big thanks to all the staff who helped us as usual to a very high standard. An in-house trolley is such a wonderful thing!
