Black and White images turned to Colour with extra Depth!

In the UK we recently heard that the ancient port of Portsmouth is to cease building Naval ships after more than 800 years of history behind it.

Still from Video - Digibloc.com - Elliott Godwin

I decided to create a short video about the docks and the history behind them. The problem is that there is no footage from the 1800’s! No problem, I used a lot of imagery including a lot of black and white turned to colour in order to modernise them.

You can see a video of me working on an image here!

Not only did I colour the images I separated different depths into layers and moved them independently of each other which gives the appearance of 3D!

I do a lot of work on colorisation, please follow me on twitter and check out my website for more information.

Titanic Coloured.

After seeing this article in the Daily Mail about the Titanic being coloured I decided to show how I would do it. No offence to the person that coloured the images, but I feel that the colour is too over the top and simplified. Just because it is being turned into a colour image, doesn’t mean it has to be ‘colourful’ - the key is to use in moderation and focus on realism.

Taking advantage of the lovely weather.
As you may know, a part of my freelance capability is aerial film. I’m able to get angles that were only dreamt of a few years ago and weren’t even possible by using a helicopter. With the cinestar 8 I am able to get aerial footage from afar or even close up and personal.
Please see the example below of a video I have done for Northfields house, which shows how using aerial photography can really add to your video production.

The lovely weather and calm wind has been perfect flying weather as of late. Why not get in touch and we’ll make a fantastic promotional video for your company.

Another colourisation time lapse.

Watch as I turn this black and white image into a dramatic colour illustration for my clients publication.

Did a doodle in Photoshop - didn’t really have an aim, just started drawing and came up with this - I guess it just lives in my head.
All done in about 2-3 hours with just a mouse in photoshop - maybe I should buy a tablet?

I’ve just completed work on the Aurora Market Research Banner.
The banner is a great way to quickly broadcast what exactly the company does at a glance, which means you don’t have to read through bulk text to understand the company. This is especially important on the home page as you need to ‘hook’ your visitors quickly before they lose interest.
In the event that the site is being viewed on a mobile device without flash, a still image alternative will appear which gives you the best of both worlds.

Colourising another image. This time it’s a practice landing with Americans for Normandy. Some of the footage got lost at the end so I fade to the final image.

Hello there,

I’m a freelancer based in Hampshire and I offer a wide range of services. One of which is Aerial Photography.

The main method of aerial photography is by using a helicopter which is hugely expensive.

I am using a specially designed piece of equipment which allows me to remotely fly a camera (DSLR) and enables me to frame the shots by using a down-link monitor.

My capabilities are HD - 1080p stabilized video and high res photography.

You are able to be there on site with me to give guidance to the sort of angles you need.

This is an exciting new venture for me, I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Work in progress. I recently made a significant purchase in a Cinestar 8 aerial photography / videography rig. The kit is a specialist bit of equipment, with a gyro stabilized camera rig, GPS, return to home, video down-link, live control surface feedback including battery life (with warning) a shutter release for photography as well as many features I’m yet to use.

This video is a few shots of me getting used to the system - It’s taken quite a while to get this far.
