Here’s a link to our latest video for Art Fund, covering the Design Museum’s excellent look at Paul Smith’s work, from early days through to his plans for the future of the innovative fashion brand he built from scratch. Enjoy!
This past Sunday and Monday (3rd and 4th Nov) I had the pleasure of directing the photography of Iqbal Mohammed’s Revisited. We shot on Red Epic and I was ably assisted by wonderful gaffers Darren Stuart Neale and Fabio Cerveira. Above is a little iphone snap I took of my AC on the shoot, Bradley Stearn through the Epic’s monitor.
Post on the short begins first thing next week and I look forward to bringing you news of its progress! Do check out the imdb for the film at this link - we had an excellent crew on board across all departments so I highly recommend making a note of them if you’re looking to crew up!
Beyond El Dorado: Power and Gold in Ancient Colombia
Here’s another video I shot with director and camera operator Terry Wilson and producer Edward Morgan of Northern Town for the Art Fund, this time looking at the British Museum’s excellent Beyond El Dorado: Power and Gold in Ancient Colombia exhibition. We were lucky enough to get access to shoot the artifacts before the show was open to the public and I can assure you it’s really worth seeing up close in person. Enjoy the video!
Thrilled to announce ‘8: Magical Thinking’ by the amazing Runyararo and Rufaro Mapfumo (Aka DessyMak Productions) has been selected for the YoungCuts Film Festival in Montreal, Canada! I shot this one on Freelance Films's Canon C300 and L Series lenses with lighting by the super talented Fabio Cerveira. A pleasure to work on, and to work with the crew and cast. Finger's crossed!
Here’s the first official trailer for “The Watcher Self”, the British independent feature I shot last year for writer/director Matt Cruse. I’m really thrilled with how the trailer has come out - it’s got a great blend of tension and pace without revealing too much (it even has a little raunchiness if that’s your bag!). Please do watch, rate and share the trailer - this was a close knit crew and a shoot packed full of people giving their time and talent for the love of it so we really do appreciate your views!
Recently myself and Phil of Freelance Films shot a couple of promotional videos at the house and grounds of the Island Hall estate in Godmanchester. We shot on a combination of C300 and 5D MK II, and as you should see from the above clip the two formats blended seamlessly in post. Here’s one of the finished videos, edited by me in Final Cut X, demonstrating the use of the beautiful early Georgian house and grounds as a live event or wedding venue. Enjoy!
