An evening test shoot for electronic duo Wyles & Simpson. Great working with them and lucky to hear them perform some of their songs. This project is a mix of live performance alongside an interview that is about their relationship with London. The lighting and foreground elements that I used on this shoot were to […]
The Forbidden Note had some added screen time on the BBC News SE last night. Good to see the pushing on for limited release and premier soon. Below is the clip from the BBC with director Callum Johnston talking about the film and trying to get it into cinemas.
I had a little personal project the other weekend. It was primarily shot on the DJI Ronin 3-axis hand-held gimbal which feels like it’s getting heavier with each shoot because of the extras I have to put on it to make it functional for a full day’s shoot. I’m always looking to improve this rig, as […]
A film I shot back in late 2013 has been featured in the Jan 2015 edition of Digital FilmMaker Magazine. I’ve always been excited by this film from the moment I read the script. Great film to be part of with supportive crew and an organised production. The film has now started its festival circuit […]
Another great collaboration both with production company HypVideo and director Miranda Howard-Williams. This time a quick book teaser trailer for Random House UK for Simon Kernick for his new book release Stay Alive. The trailer is being used commercially both on TV and online with Tesco. The budget was very tight for this little teaser. […]
Earlier this year I shot a quick teaser for Random House, one of the largest general book publishing companies in the UK. They were releasing a book called Red Rising. Sadly before the advert was finished the visual rights of the book were bought and the advert was pulled. Below is a clip of the advert, […]
After recording Chris’s live recordings down at Abbey Road awhile back, the promo is now out. I’m quite happy with the result considering the very small space, time and using only two lights with a practical in foreground. The full length videos of each track will be available to watch soon.
“The Carnival Makers” tells the origin story of Trinidadian carnival, and the strong link which UK’s own Notting Hill Carnival has to Trinidad & Tobago’s national carnival. Here are some stills from the most recent interviews with Alex.D.Great, the wonderful calypsonian who brightened up our day with his songs and guitar playing, and Leroy Logan […]
I was recently asked to film a piece to camera with Sir Ben Kingsley. Filming took place in a small narrow black box room with very little space (and time) to put lights where one would want. Considering the short amount of time recording with Sir Ben it was interesting to hear some of his […]
Helped out a mate Graham today, aka Chris Sagan. I couldn’t possibly turn down the opportunity to have a bit of a browse around the studio and do a bit of filming there. Chris has been recording his first EP here. He asked me to come along and record a couple of acoustic sessions. If […]
