Yes Sir Boss! - Not Guilty | Music Video by Love Love Films, Photographic coverage by Dorset Events Photographer

I was asked by Georgina at Love Love Films to document their filming of Yes Sir Boss' music video of Not Guilty. The shoot was a 2 day event with Studio work on day 1 and on location at Sommerly House in Hampshire for day 2.
Day 1 was pretty laid back day in terms of shooting, no 4am alarm needed for this shoot! Everyone met at Love Love HQ and had their make up done. The villain for the video was played by Denzil Keim who had a prosthetic nose applied to help him look a little more evil.

Sarah Harrison had made up a nose with Denzil a couple of weeks prior to the shoot. After making sure it fit, she got to work sticking it to his face.

while everyone was busy upstairs, the production crew had a quick meeting to discuss and review the filming.

To finish Denzil's make-up Sarah applies a little ageing magic.

I took Denzil to one side and got a portrait of him in character as the villain. He did a pretty good job at being mean!

That's a wrap! Day 1 of shooting was over.. Day 2 was going to be at Somerley House near Ringwood in Hampshire. This time no lay-in, an early start for sure! I've only ever been to Somerley House when the Sunseaker Ralley or the Ellingham Show has been on, so actually being able to step inside the beautiful looking house was going to be a real treat!

Middle of November saw me out in the middle of the New Forest with Love Love Films taking stills of them making a music video for Andy Duerden. Roll call was at 7am so it was all hands to the decks for bacon sandwiches at 6am!

It was the 2nd day of shooting, the weather better than the day before where the crew had to deal with foggy conditions. I had no real idea of what to expect other than there were going to be some guys dressed in green and orange stomping about in the New Forest.

All fueled up with Bacon goodness, we convoyed it into the deapest depths of the New Forest to shoot.

Next the guys whisked Andy off to a location from the previous days shoot to capture some loan footage. I tagged a long to get some shots.
