A goodbye letter to Bangers, by Chris Chucas

Dear Bangers,

Thank you for doing what you do and for doing it for so long. I'm really sad I can't make the last show today. Just a post to say thanks again for everything you've done. Your music has been a massive part of my life that always seems to echo thoughts and feelings on the world that I've shared with fast, loud ,( and for bonus points- Cornish) music that always makes me feel better for listening to it. I put a few videos and images together as it seemed fitting it being your last show.

You're great guys that I've had the pleasure of photographing, filming and chatting to over the years. I recall many a time listening to records at times in my life were I was freaking out and I always being able to refocus and reframe my perspective using music. You've been a big part of my work and a massive inspiration to me as person and an artist. 

Have a great show !

The Start of the Video Blog by Chris Chucas

I like to keep on top of blog posts but with so much work coming in at the moment I decided to try out a video blog. I'm obviously used to being on the other side of the camera being a photographer and film maker but my philosophy is just work at it. Sure I might not be a well polished presenter-yet but it all takes practice. It's a fun way of keeping everyone in the loop with projects and tutorials that might help you out. 

In Summary. 

The Punk Rock Documentary, Bangers are playing their last show ever in London this Sat. It's all sold out and I can't make it because I have shoots planned. I've been following bangers for a few years since coming back to the UK. It was Roo (guitarist and vocals) who made me think about the documentary film i'm working on about the scene. So sad times but Specialist Subject isn;t going anywhere. 

Plural Eyes 4. I had Plural eyes 3 and after the latest Premiere Pro update, creative cloud, (15.3 release) I then found out that it wasn't supported. So I had to spend money on Plural Eyes 4. So if you're on a tight budget hold on until you can update it otherwise you can get caught out. 

Ma in Photography; I applied and got accepted with a scholarship to Falmouth Uni to undertake a masters course. I did my Ba there and I can't wait to get stuck into it. It's a flexible learning course and it means I can carry on working as a professional photographer and film maker.  I'll have more on that on a later post.
