Just got back from filming at St Catherine's Monastery. Situated in the foothills of the Sinai mountains in Egypt, it is the oldest continuously inhabited monastery in the world. Built at the supposed site God appeared to Moses in the burning bush, it has existed for seventeen centuries. Home to Greek Orthodox monks, it attracts pilgrims from all over the world who are drawn by its history and its symbol of peace, for which it stands.
The library in the monastery contains arguably the most important collection of ancient manuscripts and early printed books in the world. However the room is in danger of collapsing, so funding has been provided to restore the walls and create a new safe library to house these important antiquities. I was part of the film crew comissioned to document the process.
To show examples of my sync and actuality work, here are a few clips from presenter led segments I have shot for The One Show with Tigress Productions. Shot with the PMW500.
I spent a few days filming for the media department at WWT Slimbridge in Gloucestershire. I used a specialist high speed camera (Photron) from www.slowmo.co.uk to try and capture some of the seasonal highlights at the reserve. Most of the shots are recorded at 500fps, some at 1000fps
