Liz Doy is the owner and film maker at PicPoc.tv
There's a famous quote, "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing." I'd have to agree - filming in the UK is always unpredictable and you have to be ready with the sun cream and wellies, often on the same day!
Filming on location for EastEnders, BBC
A BIT ABOUT ME
I've always had a passion for filming making and was keen to get my hands on my dad's super 8 cine camera from when I was 5 years old.
I realised my ambition to become a camera operator at BBC Television Centre in London and worked there for 13 years, filming everything from Strictly Come Dancing and Blue Peter to Wimbledon and EastEnders. I moved back to my roots in the Midlands in 2010, continuing to freelance for the BBC and other broadcast media outlets but noticed a gap in the market for competitively priced, good looking social media and website videos and so I created PicPoc.tv
CLAIM TO FAME
Remember that shot of Del Boy falling backwards, elbow first through the bar on Only Fools and Horses? That was my shot! I was a trainee at the time and I remember being very nervous as I knew if all went well it would get the biggest laugh from the studio audience.
WHAT IS PICPOC?
PicPoc is short for Pictures in Your Pocket, referencing the smart phones most people now carry around with them providing the ability to play high quality video content at the touch of the screen. Over 70% of internet traffic is now driven by this type of media, viewed via smart phones, tablets and PCs. Video content is now an essential marketing tool with clients and customers expecting to see it when researching a company or product.
NEED MORE INFO?
After having a look around my website, if you need any more details or if you have an idea for a video just drop me an email or give me a call. I'll be happy to help.
That's all from me - thanks for dropping by
