Urbex Film Walkaround: Windlestone Hall AKA Tombstone Manor

A brief walk around of Windlestone Hall an abandoned mansion in the North East of England. Sadly it has taken a lot of damage from vandals and thieves, who have even taken parts of the roof creating a lot of damage inside.

Urbex: I had the pleasure of exploring this large abandoned mansion in County Durham, England. The birthplace of the Conservative Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden, is now in a state of disrepair with smashed windows and paint splattered over the walls. It was up for sale at £850,000 and I believe bids have been made.

Thanks for watching let me know your views below.

Urbex Film: RAF West Raynham

A short film from the local RAF base. RAF Raynham has been abandoned for some time now. A huge site with a large number of buildings to see. Slowly the site is being renovated and some of the buildings are in use again.

So my filming went wrong so I ended up with brief hyperlapse clips instead. I never got enough timelapse clips to make a film so combined them together.

Thanks for looking. Let me know your thoughts on this short film below.

Abandoned: The Lights Are On But Nobody's Home.

It can be quite surprising the amount of abandoned places that are still left connected to a source of electricity.

These sites certainly leave some unanswered questions. Who is paying the bills? Well sadly for hospitals, educational properties or any other site funded by the government, quite possibly you and I. I have a couple of theories on industrial sites. One is if the power is still running it's not going to be so easy to steal from. It isn't advised to rip out live copper cable and could the thieves be sure if they did try to turn it off. Also these sites will eventually be stripped and it will not be a safe working environment in a poorly lit space. Then we have mothballed sites, where the cost to restart the whole factory is far more than keeping it alive a blast furnace is a prime example of this practice.  

 Here is a selection of places I have visited where the lights are still on but nobody is home.

Timelapse Film: Industreeside

A short timelapse/ slow motion film of the heavy industry in the North East of England. Filmed around Teeside and the Seal Sands industrial site between Hartlepool and Middlesbrough.

Huge industrial sites here bellowing out steam, smoke and even fire at times. It was quite a pleasure making this film.

A short film of the heavy industry that can be found around Teeside and Seal Sands, which is set between Hartlepool and Middlesborough. Lots of steam and smoke at what I believe to be mainly chemical plants. Filmed with a Nikon D750, a Nikon D7000 and a Samsung nx500.

Vlog 1: An Evening To London. Pretty much just a time-lapse.

So I tried to make a vlog. It didn't quite go to plan and ended up failing at getting enough footage and recording my random waffle ended up a time-lapse as the camera settings were wrong. So basically here is a time-lapse of London. Quite a few clips from last year.

So I thought I would try and make a vlog. It didn't quite go to plan. Mostly ended up a timelapse with a few other bits. Sadly most of the footage is not from this trip as the filming was a bit of a fail.

Thanks for watching. Feel free to leave your views on my failed vlog attempt below.

Urbex Film: Abandoned The Greenhouse

An short film of an abandoned time capsule in Norfolk.

So I feel I really upped my game with this short film that I made recently. I learnt a lot making this film and I am really pleased with the final outcome. Hopefully you are too.

A timelapse of an abandoned house I explored in Norfolk, UK. A small derelict property I found a couple of years ago. I decided to go and have another look to do some filming. It didn't work out too well and returned the next day to try something different.

Tutorial: Making A Timelapse With Lightroom and LRtimelapse

So we have a tutorial on making a time lapse video with Lightroom and LRtimelapse. It seems quite long winded and confusing, but once you get to grips with the saving and reading of metadata you will be making your own time lapse videos in no time.

Campaign: An Industrial Timelapse Film

So here is my first proper timelapse film. Based on the sugar beet campaign in East Anglia. Mostly shot at the Wissington site due to the access and views available, there are also scenes of Bury St Edmunds and Cantley. I used a wide focal range for this film maxing out at 500mm. 

The sugar beet campaign only lasts around four months it starts around October and ends around January. This obviously varies due to weather and the harvest of the beet. I do love large industry and there isn't really much around East Anglia, so I had been eagerly awaiting the start of the campaign, to shoot some timelapse.

Urbex Film: An Abandoned Train Journey

A short film I made on a few abandoned train carriages in Norfolk. A mixture of time lapse or stop motion and video. These carriages are in fairly good condition and certainly bring back a few memories.
