One of the interesting aspects of working in video is the variety of unexpected activities we can find ourselves filming. 5 years ago this month that turned out to be filming the glass craftsman Will Shakespeare. Not shy of the camera, he has featured on several TV shows including Inside The Factory and Kirstie Allsopp's Homemade series.
Hot work shooting next to the glass furnaces, and wary of melting our lenses, we shot at high speed to produce attractive slomo shots of the glass blowing process to make a glass apple for a Dental Healthcare promo. And once we had wrapped, Will let us have a (rather unsuccessful) go at glass blowing ourselves.
