Michael Fletcher Productions on the road.

Posted by mervfrench on March 13, 2012

I was with Mike Fletcher today as he was filming a short piece for a local Perth company. The guy he filmed makes drum kits out of local timber that are used by drummers from some of the top bands in the world today. A world famous drummer is in this picture, great story but that’s for another time.

 Mike travels with a large  group of hands on assistants but only one is shown here as many of the others were setting up for the next shoot sequence. Coupled with lighting gear, sound equipment,  a van with full catering facilities and a green room, it is a sight to behold and it was a pleasure to be involved today.

Stay tuned to Mikes Vimeo as I’m sure this  shoot will be one to  keep an eye out for.

Bear .

Posted by mervfrench on March 13, 2012

Say hello to Bear.  I was out at a shearing shed yesterday and  Bear the dog was earning his keep  yarding and pushing up sheep in 43deg heat.  When the pace slowed a little, Bear took the opportunity to hop into the water trough for a cool off.

Meanwhile inside the shed the shearers were working in 45 deg heat  just as hard as ever.  But they did knock off at 4.30 instead of 5.30  and had a well earned beer …….. or 2.

Time to post something.

Posted by mervfrench on March 1, 2012

No , not fancy beach sunset with hideous clouds.  Just something of interest I saw this morning.

A guy cutting down a tree. Nothing too special about that I know.

Until you see where he was, and considering it was pretty windy and the tree was really swaying .  I think he’s got more courage than me !!

He was about 25 mts up and did a great job in trying conditions.
