Minicams and remote head cameras (hot heads) are ideal for filming in situations where it is quite simply impractical to film in the normal way. Whether it’s filming in a confined space, the camera needs to be discreet or even just offering a different angle, these cameras are the perfect choice.
I have worked across a variety of genres with these cameras – From fixed rig shows such as 24hrs in A&E, GP’s Behind Closed Doors and The Hotel, to big music events such as Beyonce, Tinie Tempah and KT Tunstall, as well as Bafta winning Gogglebox.
Freelance lighting cameraman, also working a lot with remote head cameras and minicams.
With the recent developments in the way we now shoot HD, I also have a vast amount of experience of working tapeless and managing the data workflow. Often working with multiple portable recorders and handling the many types of media used by different cameras.
