Experienced videographers Ben Bruton-Cox and Richard Shelton discuss their week in video. From weddings to commercial and promotional video they well you what they came up against.




Ep163 - Is Networking needed to drive your success?

We're joined by special guest Andrew Davies to talk networking. Is it necessary? Can you just go it alone? We discuss both the pros and cons of networking and socialising with peers and clients. We also have a chat about our go to lenses, what we love about them as well as what niggles us! owivpodcast@gmail.com


Ep162 - Can you change your filming style overnight?

Can you change your filming style overnight? We all want to do something fresh and exciting, it's one of the things drives us to become better filmmakers. But can you just 'level up' overnight? What will your future clients think? Did they book you for your new or old 'style'? Plus we get technical and talk back up workflow and best practice for archiving old data. Reach out to us at owivpodcast@gmail.com We're also on Instagram / @ourweekinvideo


Ep161 - Getting out of the rut that is 'creative block'.

Have you ever lost your 'creative mojo'? There are so many questions when it happens. How did you get there? Can you get that creative spark back? Rich is stuck with 'creative block' and he can't figure out why it's happened or how to get going again. Ben offers some advice to help Rich back on his way.


Ep160 - Can you trust others to work on your behalf?

It's one of our biggest concerns, geting someone to shoot for us when we're unavailable. How do you find someone? Do you have a trusted list? Did your chosen crew not turn out as good as their showreel? All this and more in this weeks show!


Ep159 - Is Sony KILLING off LOG?

With the removal of SLOG2 from the latest FX3 firmware, is Sony going to completely give up on LOG? Or are they just housekeeping? Plus audio issues, kit list wishes and top tips!


Ep 158 - The one where they recorded it in November

Okay so we're running a bit behind, we should probably change the title of this show to our six months in video! This episode was recorded in November but we've only now been able to get it out to you. In the show we're talking about crazy aspect ratios, wedding backlogs, using the A7S3 for TV work and trusting your 2nd shooters!


Ep157 - Are you still proud of the work you produce?

In this weeks show we're both feeling a bit de-motivated about the standard of our current work. Is this due to rushing edits, filming the same things over and over again, or are we just getting a bit long in the tooth and it's time to stop. Therefore we're asking each other, can we still be proud of the work we're producing? ig. https://instagram.com/ourweekingvideo t. https://twitter.com/ourweekinvideo e. owivpodcast@gmail.com


Ep156 - Is there a 'right time' to give up filming weddings?

In this special we're talking to corporate videography company owner Matt Wilsher. In the space of a few years, as his commercial work took over, Matt went from shooting over 50 weddings a year to zero in 2022. Matt ran a highly successful wedding videography company, Tear Drop Films, and now after slowly moving to commercial work, he runs an even more successful business, Bullet. He tells us the whens, the whys and the hows in Episode 156 of Our Week in Video Check out Matt at https://www.bulletmedia.tv/ Drop us an email at owivpodcast@gmail.com Follows us on IG at @ourweekinvideo or Twitter at @ourweekinvideo


Ep155 - Let's try and convince Rich to buy an FX3!
