Welcome to the wonderful world of Lux Suite. Here you will find many sumptuous, delicious and luxurious treats for the eyes…in other words, the film and video editing work of Patrick Watkins. And that, ladies and gentlemen, would be me! This is my first blog post since I have updated my website (my, oh my did it need an update!). So what on earth am I doing with my life you may be wondering? Hmmmm, or maybe not…who knows, it’s not like I’m a mind reader or anything! No, I’m a video editor and occasional filmmaker! The reason why I say occasional is because my main source of work is editing content that others have filmed. In other words, I’m pretty much a freelance editor! But sometimes when I have the chance to focus on my own work, I produce films such as these ones. I absolutely LOOOOVE to travel so who knows where my next destination will be, and also when.
So I spent 9 of the last 10 months or so travelling throughout Asia, which you will no doubt be able to see from some of the content on this site. I filmed and edited a few short films whilst I was away, and I am currently working on editing a couple more so please watch this space and don’t forget to check back here for regular updates on my life! I bet you guys are on the edge of your seats right now just at the thought of getting an insight into the life of the man behind Lux Suite, right?! Yes, I thought as much!
As well as filming and editing, equipped with a DSLR, one cannot help but turn into an occasional photographer (there I go with my ‘occasional’ term again). Would you like to see some of my pictures? Well whether you would or not, here are a select few choices to possibly inspire you to go and do a bit of travelling yourself… (you can click on these images to see the full size versions)
Guess which one is me! Yes, that’s right, the dodgy looking one on the right wearing an old French farmer’s hat on top of a Vietnamese ladies’ head scarf…hey don’t judge, I thought that the colours were rather pleasing for the eyes!
So that’s a teeny, tiny snippet of some things that my camera happened to capture. I’ll upload more in time.
I will leave you with this thought for the day (or night depending on what time you are reading this…heck, there’s probably no-one even reading this at all!)… If you’re not weird, are you normal? Because I think that if you’re not weird, then there must be something clearly wrong with you!
Next time I will be covering what to do when you are up a mountain and you hear someone shout “AVALANCHE!” at the top of their voice. I promise you, it’s a very exciting story indeed!
