First Shoot Of The Year!

First shoot of the year was shooting Behind the scenes photos on a commercial for Glide. It was a lot of fun and a great start to 2019! The commercial can be seen here Glide-Typical Student.

I have some exciting shoots coming up this year which I look forward to sharing in time!

But for now here’s some of the BTS photos from the Glide shoot, more can be seen at the Unit Stills section of the site!

Beth ready for the shot.

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!

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
