Creative Coffee Leicester at Phoenix Square
Wednesday 1st March from 10-12 noon
Over the last couple of years the use of drone footage in films has become prevalent. Whether it's an episode of 'Coast' on the BBC or a short promo for an estate agent, their impact is clear to see. This week we're back at Phoenix Square with Guest Speakers Steve Friendship of Large Scale & John Shelton who will be discussing the effect and practicalities of filming with drones. There may even be a demonstration.
In addition to their talk, we've also got the usual blend of creative chat, discussion and coffee.
PLEASE NOTE THE TALK WITH STEVE FRIENDSHIP & JOHN SHELTON WILL BEGIN AT APPROXIMATELY 10:30AM IN THE SCREEN ROOM
Guest Speaker – Steve Friendship, Large Scale
Steve is an award winning filmmaker with national and international terrestrial and theatrical credits as Director and Writer. He has had work shown in galleries, and films screened at festivals in Europe, North America and Australasia, including awards from Flagstaff Film Festival, Houston Film Festival, Archipelago Film Festival and Leicester International Short Film Festival.
He founded and runs the production company Large Scale, which creates films for promotion and marketing. Steve started working with drones 3 years ago after a chance encounter with John Shelton, who at that point was in the process of gaining his drone pilots licence. In partnership they have created purely aerial films, films using aerial footage, and supplied footage to a range of clients.
Guest Speaker – John Shelton
Fresh from a 22 year career within the IT industry, John reinvented himself and launched mi360 Virtual Tour in October 2012 offering innovative 360 degree interactive virtual tours. From there it's led him to become a 'Trusted Google Photographer' and seen him become a qualified, and fully licensed 'drone' operator, working for clients across a wide range of markets.
