No. 43 : The Documentary

“A documentary film that is intended to give a risk education to everyone. This is a true story of international students who were battered in their own home. Although this is an unfortunate event, but I am hoping that the complete film will raise awareness to those that are leaving home to study abroad or those that have already left.”

I am proud to announce that ‘No.43′ documentary film is now launched. The rationale behind this project is to create ‘safety’ awareness for everyone. At the moment, both of my friends are recovering from physical injuries. This valuable lesson have taught them several things and hopefully, they will be fully recovered in a very near future. I hope this film would be beneficial to some people, if not all.

Thank you to all the people involved, we really appreciated all the help.

Take to the Streets : Legacy Project

Earlier this month, I have been told by lecturer that I am now participating in a legacy project. Birmingham City Library organised this project in collaboration with Magnum Photos. I am very honoured to be part of the legacy project since I am one of the two international students who have been selected. It offers a great opportunity to be receiving comments from Magnum photographers and having my photographs published.

Gary Cardin, Chair of CBD, said: “This project is a truly exceptional opportunity to capture the essence of the business district. Through this bespoke commission, business life in the city will be chronicled and organisations in the District will have the chance to be part of a permanent collection of work which illustrates the community, lifestyle and surroundings which we are all a part of”.

“We are delighted to be working with Birmingham City University on such a distinctive project. It is our opportunity to contribute permanently to a chapter of Birmingham’s social history, as well as encourage people to re-evaluate and appreciate our city, surroundings and our workplaces”.

“With such dramatic and exciting transformational change taking place in Birmingham over the next few years, we hope this work will offer a broad insight into how District looks now and a hint of how it may develop in the years ahead.”

Nathan Tromans, Head of Undergraduate Studies within the School of Visual Communication at BCU, said: “I’m very happy that the university is playing a key part in this exciting partnership. For any aspiring documentary photographer, it would be a dream to one day work for Magnum, which is undoubtedly the most prestigious and highly regarded photo agency in the world.

“This Legacy project, which comes off the back of the ‘Take to the Streets’ exhibition will provide our students with a unique opportunity to document the Colmore Business District with creative support from Magnum. I’m convinced that this placement will contribute to their creative work and confidence and I commend the vision of the Colmore Business District, Library of Birmingham and Magnum for investing in such an innovative venture.”

Enhance your DSLR movie looks

The Technicolor CineStyle™ is a Picture Style (profile) for Canon EOS DSLR cameras that optimizes the dynamic range in the image by leveraging the capabilities of the Canon imaging chipset. Cinematographers and their post-production partners will have greater flexibility in color grading and finishing their projects.

Cinestyle : Before and After from Patr Srisook on Vimeo.

Cinestyle is a very effective Picture Style for grading. Very low noise at recommended iso (the multiples of 160).

“To properly color correct and/or view footage shot with Technicolor CineStyle we recommend utilizing a S-curve shaped look-up table (LUT) in your editing or color correction application. You may download such a LUT using the links provided.”

But in this sample I manually adjusted my own curve. Next time I will test it with the provided LUT and we can compare the difference.

Based on Technicolor’s usage and testing of its CineStyle Picture Style, we recommend the following camera settings to optimize the image quality of your Canon EOS camera:

Sharpness: 0
Contrast: -4
Saturation: -2
Color Tone: 0
ISO: a multiple of 160

Install it now and go shoot some movie!

Americana : Inspiration of a song

Americana :Inspiration of a song from Patr Srisook on Vimeo.

Nathan showed his talent in a seminar and it inspired me in working on this project. I approached him to ask for his songs which I would like it to be one of my project. Talking to Nathan gave me appreciation in the value of country music and he suggested that I should do some researches on different country music artists. I developed my understanding through researches and came up with a proposal for Nathan. He also gave advise on shooting location, which I went to explore. Started by a train ride from Coventry to Wolverhampton than changed another train to go to Telford. The first trip was not a very successful one because there are flaws in my trip planning, which mainly involved the lack of bus rides. However, I managed to walk around and got some ideas. Then, I appointed with Nathan for his free afternoon. Although he is a very busy teacher, he gave me approximately 4 hours of his time after work and took me to Ironbridge Gorge for the shooting.

The interview started in his car on the way to Ironbridge Gorge. He explained history of Americana, which is a sub-genre of country music a.k.a alternative country. In brief, he mentioned that originally, country music was born in England and went abroad and became famous in America. These days, many British artists adapt their songs based on this type of music. Afterwards, Nathan drove around the town to find the perfect spots for the video and the locations we choose are his favourites. A week later, after I edited shots I have, I decided to hire a car and drove to Ironbridge Gorge again for B-Role. The reason that I did not shoot all the scenes when I went with Nathan because I would like to make it finish as soon as possible for him. I did not want to take his free time more than necessary.

A Day in March : The Documentary

A Day in March from Patr Srisook on Vimeo.

On the day, I accidentally (intentionally) found my subject on the bus. This documentary film is part of my MA project ‘A Day in Life’. Its aim is to find a subject and record what he/she does in one day.

This guy is one of the protestors which is kind enough to share his view, so I asked him to be my subject. The documentary runs through what the subject saw during the day participating in March for the Alternative. It also reveals his thoughts on the protest and why he thinks it’s important to be part of it.

Walking through the streets of London with the march was fascinating because other road users disrupted by the protest were calm and some of them decided to join the march. People came from every industries and protest peacefully in one day is impressive. I could never imagine how big it was. I believe this is what so called ‘people’s power’.

This documentary was shooting strictly in one day. There is no chance for B-Role. Since I have never participated in something like this before, I could not really imagine how it is going to be like. I could only plan ahead briefly what I would like to have in the documentary, other than that I just had to go with the flow.

A Day in March : Photos

This is the first time in my life participating in such an event. I have heard many rumours about violence in the march, so I did some research. Luckily, my friend who was a frequent flyer for protests gave me some tips on how to survive if anything should happen and things to look for as an early warning sign of violence. Unfortunately, I never got to use these tips because it was a very peaceful march. It was a great experience for a documentary photography.

March for the alternative was held in London, UK on Saturday 26th March 2011 for the purpose of 1) to give a national voice to all those affected by the cuts and 2) to show that people reject the argument that there is no alternative.

I have also made new friends and exchanging ideas for further developments.

Still, I have not recover from the trip yet, here are some photos. I will be editing video later in the week. Lucozade have just been promoted to be my new best friend.
