Philip Bloom’s London Meet – Blog and a Kubrick inspired short!

Last weekend I met the man himself Philip Bloom with which it all began and whom was first to shoot really exciting footage with a DSLR and get the word out.

I was also to meet another GH1 shooter – the only one there! If you read this, show me your footage on Vimeo or similar. Would like to see it. I also met a writer-director who appears to have a huge talent. I am very excited at the prospect of being his DP.
