CARNIVAL 2014 – A Look Back -   3 comments


 

 

Carnival 2014

When we arrived at the first South Somerset Carnival at Wellington we never knew what to expect, we soon found out, this year it was all going to be different, I mean different in that and has been said on the Somerset Carnivals Web Site http://www.somersetcarnivals.co.uk  Forum the Carnival Clubs have been “Thinking Out Of The Box”. Oh how right they were, 2014 seemed to be the year of the Pirate`s, at least four Carnival Clubs used it as their theme and constructed it so well. Now please don`t think I am being biased in any way, I used to be a journalist and do not have BIAS built into me, the first cart out was Harlequins Carnival Club with TORTUGA yes pirates but done on a grand scale, the quality of their build and lighting was just right all enacted to the music “Shiver Me Timbers”. Throughout the South Somerset Federation of Carnivals they came first in Feature, they went on to the North Somerset County Circuit and took First place in the Open Feature at Bridgwater and second place at every other Carnival through to the Grand Final at Glastonbury, making them joint County Cup Winners.

The other pirates were Eclipse Carnival Club from Chard, they were beset with problems from the start, problems with their generator, but, they were as good, the sailed their way through every town in South Somerset and the County Circuit where, the weather was so unkind to everyone, rain at just every venue and, lot`s of it apart from the final at Glastonbury.

Gemini Carnival Club who enter in the Carnival Tableau Class, for those who are unaware, they have to stand or sit on their cart motionless, their theme was Transformer`s. Now this was Spectacular, if you have seen the movie you will know what it is about, we had not seen it but after Wellington Carnival we made a point of watching, then we knew what it was all about. They had cars completely wrecked, one hanging from the roof of the cart, people strewn around the deck, police cars, bag lady, soldiers, pedestrian on the phone, to me it was “Mayhem On Stage” an excellent entry, here I have to give and extra plug to the driver of their 100 foot cart Michael Rowley, he drove that thing with absolute precision and, doing some thing a driver has no need to do on a Tableau Class entry, he did not move at all, well he appeared not to move as his costume was designed with false arms, well done mike you looked after everyone, safely. The question most people have asked over the last few weeks is “Where Is The Cube”.

To the entries in every town and both Carnival Circuits Well Done to every one of them, they were all magnificent, Brunels Theme from Gremlins, the very bright Lime Kiln Carnival Club with USA, Marketeers with wonderful Neon Light, the comic class had everyone entertained as did the small groups and single walkers, yes, you can tell there was some definate “Out Of The Box Thinking” A 2 year old in a suitcase, a 9 year old young lady Rio Welsh won first prize in her home town of Taunton for the first time, Majorettes twirling their way through the procession, some who travelled from Poole in Dorset, Boy Scout groups being prepared, I could go on for ever. Everyone was MAGNIFICENT and A WINNER and, if you missed it well it`s to late now it`s all over for another year. One set of people I should congratulate, they are the unsung hero`s who put these Carnivals on in each town, Well Done To YOU ALL and the marshal`s who make sure it all runs smooth, well as smooth as possible.

We arrived at Bridgwater at 2.00pm a good five hours before the start, some of the Carnival Clubs had not arrived at this time but we use the time to “Get The Lay Of The Situation” Throughout the afternoon we watch the clubs put the final touches to their entry. We always chat with the members of the clubs, we were told by one club that the generators they use for electricity can use up to 50 gallons of fuel an hour, that is very expensive.

Everything got underway at 7.00pm to some confusion, the offical start is about 200 yards from where we were, now the towns Carnival Committee advertise for more people to attend but, when more people do attend they don`t make enough provision for all the extra visitors. The weather throughout the day was good, so everyone expected a dry procession, but at about an hour into the procession down came the rain, it kept that up until around 11.00pm. For us as photographers the rain is a nightmare.

Let me explain how we go about getting so many images and, so many angles of any particular club, being walking or on a large cart, we use a Documentary Style for shooting all our images, after working my life as a documentary Cameraman it comes naturally to take an image of the front of a cart and follow through to the rear. With a still camera it is easy to do exactly the same making sure you hold the camera steady and try to get your subject in the centre of the frame-unless there are 2 or 3 performers together, the main thing you should be looking for is a steady image with both arms by your side and use the viewfinder not the camera`s screen. I have seen hundreds of images taken by mobile phones and the result is very blurry images and, the person who takes the mobile image seems satisfied with it, mobile devices cannot capture enough light and in my opinion you can never hold the device still. Again with a mobile device used for video 99 times out of a 100 they will be blurred and used with one hand and Over Use of the zoom feature.

Some people have asked me about the various Graphics, I have learned the art of Graphic Design and can produce any graphic for any occasion. I does depend on the style of lettering (known as Font) the colour of font and also the colour of the background of the particular graphic design, you will notice this year I have not made any graphic with a black background and have also included fireworks.

You can see at the top of the web site just one identifying Banner Graphic of Heikoworld Photography, that took me an hour to produce, Ok I like to get it just right even down to using one pixel in size to remove odd pixels.

GEMINI CARNIVAL CLUB at HONITON 2014   Leave a comment


GEMINI CARNIVAL CLUB 2014

This week we decided to put Gemini Carnival Club from Ilminster altogether as we had quite a few. In all honesty in our opinion Gemini have put a lot of work into this theme, with lots of fine detail even to the music theme, remember there are four movies [I am told there is a 5th one in the making]

I can see the ideas and skills that went in to making this Carnival entry, BUT, I am not demeaning other clubs, they too have put a lot of skill and effort into their Carnival entry, I am struck with it as it`s a technical thing and I like that kind of thing. One of the things we do here at Heikoworld is Computers, we have 6 computers running specialized software programs [NO GAMES] we use all our computers to the maximum.

HONITON CARNIVAL 2014 [Devon]   1 comment


HONITON CARNIVAL 2014

 

What can we say, Honiton, you put on a Great display even in the town centre there were stalls of all descriptions, we came to the Carnival start and I said “This is going to be a brilliant Carnival” and, it was the crowds at Ottery Lane were some five deep, the children were laughing and enjoying every cart and other entries that came along. At the turn onto the main road their was a marshall keeping everyone away from the wall due to the wide turn needed for the very large entries, what a great job he did, safety is always on everyone`s mind at every Carnival, even at coin throwing at the collecting vehicles was well supervised, if a child missed the collecting trailer they never went out to pick them up, other adults follow on behind to pick up the stray coins.

So, even the weather was excellent, unlike last year at Honiton where we all got soaked. The whole of Honiton Carnival went without a hitch, always worth the 9 to 10 hours we spend in every town on Carnival Day.

Finally I see from the Carnival program that Honiton are holding a Christmas Carnival on Saturday 6th December, starting at 5.30pm at Ottery Moor Lane, look forward to that.

WEATHER FORECAST FOR HONITON-DEVON Saturday 25th October   Leave a comment


Honiton Weather Forecast

Above is the weather forecast map courtesy of the Met Office http://www.metoffice.gov.uk for our next Carnival at Honiton.  Hontiton is not far from us across the border into Devon but, we do have to go over the Blackdown Hills, over the hills the weather can have a life of it`s own normally but the Met Office are forecasting decent weather. Last year it was wind and rain all evening and even now it has time to change, but maybe we will get lucky.The Honiton Procession starts at 7.30pm.

REMAINING CARNIVAL DATES [Reminder]   Leave a comment


We have had the four South Somerset Carnivals. We started with Wellington moved to Ilminster and on to Chard, finally last Saturday the County Town of Taunton.

From this coming Saturday we will be at the only Devon Carnival we actually cover, that`s at the town of Honiton.

Below I have put a list of the North Somerset County Carnival Circuit beginning at the town of Bridgwater, known as “The Home Of Carnival”. All the Carnival Clubs from The South Somerset Federation will join the County Circuit making the Largest Carnivals in the World, each Carnival will take some two hours maybe longer to complete the various towns circuit. As you can see below the whole Carnival season ends with the Grand Final at Glastonbury.

For the benefit of all the many visitors to our web site from all over the world, the reason Carnival exists is “To Celebrate The Gunpowder Plot Of 1605″ Where Guy Fawkes and band of men tried to blow up the House Of Parliament and kill King James of England, the barrels of gunpowder and Guy Fawkes and his men were discovered and were all hanged.
