As seen in - Ellie Goulding 'Burn'

I know I only posted my last 'As seen in' post less than a week ago and said in that post that they'd probably only pop up here and there, but there's a special reason why I've decided to let you know about one of my video's that's been out for a while.  

I believe this was No 1 for a few weeks back in July, but I've decided to post about it now because Burn is up for Best video at tomorrow night's Brit awards.  So as it's up for a Brit I thought you might like to hear a little bit about making the video.  Although this is an 'As seen in' post this is the first video I've worked on that you can't actually see me in.  Well, I haven't managed to spot myself so far. 

This was filmed on an air base (so we all had to be security cleared beforehand) and the idea was that we had broken in (obviously we didn't actually break in) and decided to have a rave.  This was filmed at the beginning of June last year and during the day it was pretty warm, but once it got to late evening/early hours of the morning boy was it cold!  The only heat to be found was from sheltering on a coach, standing in front of one of the spotlights on the runway or just jumping up and down on the spot like crazy.  

Although you can't actually see me in the video people are slightly confused when I tell them that in the shot above there's actually four of me.  The reason for this is that there wasn't that many people actually there, so a bit of editing was involved.  The way they did this was by getting us all to rave away in one quarter of the runway, then we moved over to the second quarter and filmed again, then the third and so on.  Then all the shots were edited together to make it look like there was four times more people there then there actually was.  Hence in this shot there's four of each person. 

As fun as it was going slightly crazy raving away on the runway (which helped with trying to keep warm) just as we cut on the third quarter of the runway my hip popped out (I do have a problem with one hip) and although it doesn't usually hurt it was actually pretty painful.  Luckily it popped right back in again after a couple of seconds and I carried on raving!

I very nearly made it into a close up camera shot a few times as when Ellie is in shot in white, like the one below, I'm just off camera to the left.  I also might have made it into the light field shots towards the end of the video if I'd been able to stay a bit longer (I left about 1am!) but I had a two and a half hour drive ahead of me to get to my boyfriend's house!

This year for the first time ever you'll actually be able to vote for Best video using Twitter while the ceremony is being broadcast on 19th February.  So if you're watching and are a fan of the Burn video I'd love if you'd vote for it and then maybe I can say I've worked on a Brit award winning video.  If you haven't seen the video yet then you can check it out below.

I nearly weed myself when I headed to Youtube to embed the video and discovered it's been viewed over 180 million times, that is crazy!

Are you a fan of Burn?
