Probably the simplest edit I've ever done.
A fellow member at Staines and I were wandering around Royal Holloway, University of London, sizing the possibilities for a club documentary about the place and came upon this bloke re-pointing the brickwork. He was amenable to being filmed and told us he was working the next day.
Jeremy duly turned up with camera and radio lav, filmed and passed the footage to me. We were hoping to get maybe a shot or two of the work being carried out if we ever made the documentary.
The guy was a natural at explaining his craft, so I thought I'd have a bash at making the little film you see here. I simply used his (barely edited) live commentary and cut the relevant images to match.
The film has been criticised for not explaining why this form of pointing is done - what it is designed to achieve - but I quite liked it the way it is: just the one man explaining "how".
I think it;s interesting to note that unlike a "how to" film, none of this is at all staged, he and his assistant are simply going about their work and he is explaining it "on the fly".
