Unit stills

A little Update!

Hello

Thought I would do a little update of whats been happening! I have been a little unwell so that took me out for a week and a half, but I’m healthy and well now so all is good!

Ive been in the studio again shooting headshots and playing with my lovely new hand painted backdrop from Bespoke Backdrops, it has a lovely colour and texture to it, and I look forward to creating some interesting portraits with this soon!

Some of the photos below have been shot on this new backdrop!

A few of the films I have worked on have had the all clear for the unit stills to be shared, so I’m happy to share some of these with you below. Some of which are from a lovely new music video orange from Artist Daithi which can be seen by clicking here Orange.

Unit Stills Are Great For Film Promotions!

My Unit stills Photography in online magazines!

It was great to see my unit still's from two different films used on online articles to promote the films!

 The first one was from the most recent film I worked on, which was Socks and Robbers the article was in the Burton mail explaining why the crew where at an American diner in Swadlincote, check out the article below to find out more and to see a first look at my photos to accompany the article these photos haven't been released yet so its a sneak peak into the set of Socks and Robbers!

The second article is on the Birmingham Live site about a Kickstater campaign to raise money for a Star Wars short film called Padawan Rising, It's an exciting project with lots of stormtrooper's involved. It was great to work on the trailer and it will be even greater if the funds are raised to make the film, as I will hopefully be the unit stills photographer on that to!

See the link below for more information and follow the campaign if you would like to get involved in the film!

More Star Wars photos from this film can be seen on the Unit Stills section of my website so got take a look!

The importance of having unit stills photographers on your film's!

These Articles just go to show how important it is to have Unit Stills/ Behind the scene photography on your films, they are great to show the adventure of your time on set, a good source of publicity and help show the films progression. Production stills can also be taken to be used for posters (as seen below for the short film WashClub) and for festival releases to promote your film in the programmes to.

So keep me in mind as your behind the scene photographer when your working on your next film project or commercial and get in touch through the contact section on the website or email: gemmaobrienphoto@gmail.com

Behind The Scene of Socks and Robbers

Last week was an interesting shoot I was BTS photographer on a little short called Socks and Robbers a bank heist film, it wasn't your normal shoot it involved sock puppet masks and CGI, this made for some interesting photos, from actors walking around with sock puppet characters for a head, to green screen masks!

It was a very fun shoot with a talented crew, we shot in the Nottingham council house which is stunning inside, and a beautiful bank scene was created by the talented art department!
