More Amazing Spaces!!!!!

Polecam camera Jib used for filming 'Amazing Spaces'

Series 4 of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces started on Thursday night (23/10/2014) on Channel 4 in the UK at 8pm. It can be re-watched on 4oD.

I've been Director of Photography of the show for the past two years now and have shot every episode since half way through the first series.

I use my Polecam almost every day of filming and I have to say, if there ever was a single piece of equipment which is tailor made for a particular production, it's the Polecam on this show.

The shots we're able to get give us the production values that the show needs and really is the icing on the cake visually. It is particularly valuable when we film the 'reveal': this is where we show the finished project that we've been following during the programme.

We want to make the build look as exciting and as dramatic as possible and the Polecam gives me that ability. It allows me to create gorgeous looking sequences, which really elevate the look of the programme and show off these amazing spaces; plus production loves it. I have flown my Polecam around the world and have operated it in widely diverse environments - for example, the mountains of the Italian Alps and the prairies of Texas - in varying temperatures from scorching heat to well below zero. It has never let me down.

It does take time to master operating the Polecam; I think it's a little like learning to play a musical instrument - there's no short cut to success, just time and practice. I'm lucky enough to have had the opportunity to showcase this fantastic piece of kit on such a great programme, although there is always room to improve. I'm looking forward to shooting series 5 of Amazing Spaces, starting early next year.
