Evening all,

As many will know by now, Spain has been on lockdown since midnight Sunday. People are only allowed to leave their homes for specific reasons such as buying food or medicine, travelling to or from work (if it remains open and not done remotely), caring for dependent relatives, and some others.

Unable to leave the house to walk and make pictures, I decided to make a short film about life under lockdown. It's slow paced and focuses on the mundane situations I find myself surrounded by, watching and listening as they unfold around me. (It helps if you understand Spanish to understand some of the overheard sound and conversations in the background.) I wanted to give a sense of the slow pace of days and the intermittent boredom. If you have a spare quarter of an hour, you can watch it here.




Constructive feedback would be welcomed - especially as I'm working on a follow-up video with further observations or vignettes from our new lives behind closed doors. This is the first video I've published, and one of the first that I've made. The video was made using my Canon 5DII, a 50mm lens and a tripod to keep the shots steady. (At the moment that's my video kit. I'd like to get a basic mic to do some other stuff but ... that will have to wait, I guess ... you know, lockdown and all that.)

All the best to everyone going through a hard time with this global crisis,

Owain.

Morning all,

This past week, the first under Lockdown here in Spain, I've been working on a second video about life confined to our flat. The video is long, and starts slowly, but I do think it's worth sticking with ... a lot like self-isolation, really. (Again, if you speak or understand Spanish then large parts of this video will make a lot more sense.) There's a lot of bad news in the situation here in Spain, but one of the positive aspects is how people are coming together during the crisis. Our neighbourhood is out on their balconies every night to applaud the frontline workers putting their lives on the line for all of us ... and one of the neighbours has started volunteering his PA system to entertain us. All of this you can see in the following video ... I strongly recommend making yourself a cup of tea or coffe before watching because it turned into a 30-minute quasi-biopic. :rolleyes:
