The cinematic video work of Edmond Terakopian

  1. Electric Coffee Company

    The story of the Electric Coffee Company ( ) in Ealing, London; its refurbishment, its re-opening, its coffee and the importance of community and the individuality of shops and cafes.

    Shot entirely on the Leica M (Type 240) using a Leica 28mm Summicron ASPH, 35mm Summilux ASPH FLE and 50mm Noctilux ASPH, with some shots using a Leica OUFRO macro adapter. Ambient audio recorded on the internal microphone and interview recorded on a Roland R26 using a Rode lavalier microphone. Edited using FCP X. Partially colour graded in "Color" by Neil Patience ( ). Final grading with FCP X and Film Convert. A Manfrotto 561BHDV video monopod was used for all shots apart from the interview, for which a Gitzo video tripod was used. I also used a Lee RF75 filter holder & hood, along with Lee ND filters.

  2. The Cleaner

    The beginnings of another normal and dull day of going to work as a cleaner. On the way, a distraction leads to another distraction at work and the day changes direction.

    A short film shot on the RED One and a Rode NTG-2 mic. RAW footage processed in REDCINE-X. Dual audio recorded on Rode NTG-3 mic and Zoom H4n. The time-lapse scenes were shot on a Canon 5D MkII and edited in Aperture. The film was edited and graded, with audio and titles, all on FCP X.

    With thanks to Newday Pictures, AB and the Trinity Bar (Harrow).
