Brin Coleman showreel

Showcasing a range of my recent as cinematographer, director and editor.
A selection of recent films I have worked on, including music promos, adverts and short form documentary.

I am interesting in storytelling and creating work that is visually striking.
I recently graduated a BA (Hons) in Creative Media and Visual Communication at MMU and UCEN with First Class Honours. During and since my time at university, I have created a diverse portfolio of work for a range of clients. I care about getting things right.

Fall Colors & Sounds

A visit to Ann Morrison Park in Boise, Idaho, part of the green belt that runs through the city along the Boise River.

The temperature in Boise can change rapidly. In the park at time of filming, it was 28°F (-2°C) but it would rise into the 60s in the afternoon. Perhaps this contributes to the beauty of the place and the vibrant autumn colours.

Filmed in Ann Morrison Park, Boise, Idaho, October 2017.

An Introduction to Ghost Harmonics

A look at the strangely familiar looking ambient musician Ghost Harmonics, who creates chilled out and minimalist longform drones.

He explains how the music is made, just what Urban Ambient music is and how the idea of playing just one note came about.

Bing Satellites live in concert

A full live improvised ambient set I performed at Seven Arts in Leeds on 15 June 2019, supporting Marconi Union.

This concert was the first chance I have had to make a backdrop video. I used elements from other videos I have created using smoke, fire and translucent material in slow motion.

I also took the opportunity to film this concert with two cameras.

The finished film used footage from the two camera plus the backdrop film created for the concert, as well as the audio I recorded for the live album of this concert.

Over To You - BBC Radio Manchester

I was lucky enough to take part in BBC Radio Manchester Over To You project where 100 people from the region took on various roles in the station over one week in March.

The team liked the idea I pitched so I made a report talking to students who have come to Manchester from overseas to ask them what they think of the city.

On the day, I was mentored by BBC Journalist of the Year, Richard Stead. The report was recorded at the Fielden campus of The Manchester College. We then took it back to Salford Quays where I edited it. We then wrote a cue for the presenter to introduce the piece.

A few weeks later, many of the people who took part in the project were interviewed on a live show.

The recording includes the original broadcast report (including cue), as well as the interview that followed a few weeks later.

It was an incredible and rewarding experience and hopefully not the last. I can, however, now include BBC Radio Reporter on my CV!
