John Loden Race Filming with JLOffshore Media

Monday 18th March 2013

RORC London Clubhouse


JLOffshoreMedia will be covering this season's RORC Races. And I'm looking for boats and/or crew who would like to have me along as onboard videographer.

The films from the last two seasons can be seen here. This year, I want to make them more inclusive by using footage from a range of different yachts in each Race.

The films are like mini documentaries, with a voiceover, so it'll be easy to feature more boats. If, for example, we can get a range of shots of the start, the drama and competitiveness of the fleet will be clearer and there'll be lots of opportunities to illustrate other key moments during each Race.

I really enjoy filming on different boats myself, but it'll be fantastic for the RORC and for our sport if we can get some exciting and diverse material from a range of boats into each video story. Many boats are already carrying cameras, so let's build on this enthusiasm.

Obviously, all the footage needs to be shot in such a way that it can be incorporated into the overall film. So I'm running a short interactive Workshop at the RORC, on 18th March, to discuss the project and the camera techniques and the kind of footage we'll need to create this year's Race films.

At the Workshop, we'll discuss and share tips about:

- the different types of popular cameras and their pros and cons;

- the shots that work and the shots that don't;

- how to tell `stories'

- how to get interesting sound

By using a wider range of material, we'll be able to show more than just what happens on one particular Race boat and so draw in a wider audience. And I'd like to help offshore racers develop their onboard video skills so that, together, we can produce some really memorable films.

If you would like to know more about the Race Film Project or want to invite me onto your boat, please contact me directly ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). I look forward to seeing you on 18th March at the RORC.
