Short Shorts: A Day with an Auctioneer
A one minute film made for us by Joe Bulmer from Appledore.
Joe visited South Molton's livestock market in North Devon and talked to the people who make it happen. A lovely short film looking at a traditional way of life in North Devon. Joe has captured the character of the auctioneer perfectly - listen carefully to his sage advice - it will make you laugh!
Joe says "I chose South Molton’s livestock market because it’s one of the town’s major features yet very few people understand what goes on there. I learnt a lot in the brief time I worked there and was struck by the spirit and banter of the place. I used a Panasonic HX-DC1, I guess you’d call it a handicam. The footage I edited on iMovie with the help of my mac guru Gina. I’d been yearning to do make a film for some time and couldn’t decide on a subject. I guess the experience has taught me to film more and think less, if that makes sense."
