Recent Freelance work…
I’ve been working freelance for Moviestore Collection Ltd again – scanning 35mm, medium format and prints of old movie stills which I then research the film and add names, keywording etc to then upload to the company website and other syndicates – whilst it’s nice to work from home it does mean that you need to get out of the house so I tend to go on long walks around London – obviously I take my camera with me… really keep meaning to take my tripod but I tend to just carry it around and give myself back ache… oops.
I love the baby images – there were a lot more but these are for the parents eyes only – there were also two older girls who I got to jump around on a bed. I then photoshopped a fluffy sky into the background so it looks like they are ‘leaping’ into the sky… bit of fun
I also went on the London Emirates Cable Car which was great fun and hope to do it again soon… just a shame there isn’t that much to visit the area for – I’m not a fan of the O2 Dome’s ‘contents’ … the Dome itself it a nice structure, I just hate the shops/entertainment types places it has… very fake and expensive.
I’ve worked at Moviestore Collection Ltd for several years now… mostly part time since starting the BA course.
I started with retouching and scanning of image which are then uploaded to several websites (syndicates as well as the company own website) – a step backwards in one way but I knew that I wanted to study and if I’d managed to get a well paying, long hour job then I wouldn’t have started the course!
I now tend to deal with the IT (small scale) for the company as there are only 4 people working there – 2 part time including me).
I’ve finally managed to convince the boss to switch DAM (Digital Asset Management) hosts to one that costs 3/4 less than the previous one and this new site now actually works a lot faster and doesn’t come up with constant errors – it still has a few issues to sort but hopefully they will be completed in the next few weeks.
Freelance Layout of postcard sized flyer for UAL Research Online Promotion.
A simple clean layout featuring artwork by samwinston.com – it was appropriate to use artwork by the contributers of the site and the flow of text/ideas seemed fitting.
