What I've Been Up To: Working In Manchester

It has been a bit of a whirlwind but recently, I travelled to Manchester to work with Hero&Cape on their A/W14 lookbook. This is a brand that I have close connections with, and on a freelance basis, I have been working with them on every collection launch since they began their business in 2011.

What I've Been Up To: Working In Manchester

Hero & Cape are a creative brand that works with fellow creatives and previously, I was given the opportunity to style their looks and to manage their social media, but this time, I had the responsibility of filming and editing their promotional "behind-the-scenes" style of video, which you can watch below (it's only 1 minutes 20 seconds long so it won't take too much of your time!)

I had a lot of fun working with the team and even though I was super tired, we kept each other motivated with positivity! I started the morning off with two large coffees and met up with the two beautiful models, make-up artist (so much make-up! *swoon!*) and photographer. 

We walked around the city, back and forth, so I got to see a lot of Manchester. The turn around was quick too, I did the video in two solid days and our photographer (and fellow blogger) finished editing the images in 4 days, and everything was up on the shiny new site within less than a week! TEAM WORK GOALZZZ.


Filming a video like this and using Final Cut Pro was something I hadn't done before (a lot of YouTube tutorials on Final Cut Pro had been watched prior to the project!) but thankfully, everyone is pleased with how it turned out. 

And of course, the photographer did a great job of the final images which you can see right here. (The photos shown on this post was ones I had took myself as a way of capturing a few shots behind-the-scenes).
