    It was recon 2019 in Wakefield today, I went along with my trusty camera and made this show report on my Yotube channel. Please check it out (and subscribe!):

    Thanks, most interesting.  It would be nice to get a bit more of the wide angle shots about the show like the Baccus stand and the show room.

    Cheers, I will take that into account for the next show I film, which will probably be Vapnartak in February.

    All Hell Let Loose looks amazing.   (at about 4:50)

    Also like the look of The Mummy.

    Isn’t it just? I saw it at Fiasco and was blown away how good it looks. it’s a real showcase for 6mm.

    The Mummy was a fun game with a lot of nods to classic films and characters. Really good fun

    An interesting video, thanks for posting it.  Two points of criticism from me, constructive I hope!  I found the soundtrack to be jarring, but once I realised that there would be no voice over I just turned the sound off.  More importantly, I felt that sometimes you panned across a game too rapidly for my eye to take in all that could be seen.  Pausing the video just gave a blurred still frame.  If there’s a lot to take note of in the area you are capturing then a slower pan will allow us to see more of what’s there.  Thanks again.

    Thanks, criticism is fine, as long as it’s constructive… I made a decision not to have voice overs on these videos, largely cos I’m usually chatting to my mates and the conversation is largely inane banter and in jokes. As you said, if you don’t like the music, just turn it down. At the end of the day whatever I do is going to displease someone, so I make the videos as I’d like them to be and if others like it, then great.

    I take the point about panning quickly, but that is usually because most of the games are in full flow and I don’t like interrupting someone’s fun while I linger over the table with the camera. Everyone seems happy to have me film, but I don’t want to take the mick. I guess a solution would be to add in some still photos as well, which would have more detail shown. I’ll think about it for the next one.
