THE LEIGH SPENCE MOMENT: I MADE A THING


38. Dead Mall – The Bridge Shopping Centre, Portsmouth, UK



30/07/2017




Here is something I should impose on myself whenever I can’t find a film to write about – make your own one. I took a ferry to the nearby city of Portsmouth, walked around inside a dead shopping mall for a few minutes, took some pictures outside, and cobbled it together at home. For the record, I used an iPhone 7 for video and pictures, which was exported to an iPad, where iMovie was used to edit everything together. It works as a small tribute to Dan Bell’s “Dead Mall Series”, which I have written about previously [Link]. All I did was to ensure everything was in some semblance of order, cutting out anything that went wrong, with some rearranging of shots once opportunities could be found within the footage. This was a great exercise in creating something from absolutely nothing, but next time, some planning should be made.
