Aimimage at Glastonbury

Aimimage at Glastonbury

Aimimage had a strong presence at this year’s Glastonbury, the legendary music festival.

Greenpeace used a camera from Aimimage to create a video showing some of the Glastonbury team sailing with the Beluga II, in order to bring attention to the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans.

A professional camcorder, the Canon XF305 is light and versatile while offering superior image quality and an efficient, robust workflow at an affordable price. This makes it perfect for ENG crews and also self-shooting documentary filmmaking such as this.

With this film, Greenpeace have launched a campaign to create a deposit return scheme. The petition can be signed here and more about the Beluga II can be found on Greenpeace’s website.

Glastonbury also featured an event called “Cineramageddon.”

Curated by Julien Temple and produced by Stephen Malit, it was billed as a “maximum rock’n’roll cinema,” a five day film festival within Glastonbury.

Artist Joe Rush created the outdoors auditorium, a sort of twisted drive-in “featuring fifty mutated vintage American and British cars, re-purposed funfair rides and a Lear jet.”

The event showcased an eclectic mix of films, from French film master Robert Bresson to all-American classics like American Graffiti and midnight cult favourites like Holy Mountain. Johnny Depp introduced a screening of his 2004 film The Libertine.

Also screening were several music documentaries by Temple himself, including Keith Richards: The Origin of the Species, a film about the Rolling Stone’s postwar childhood and adolescence in Dartford and London, which was shot by Steve Organ using cameras from Aimimage.
