Recently worked on a series of 10 second films for sevensixproductions promoting DFS’s upcoming winter range.
Worked with the South Wales rock band Godsticks to produce a music video for there single ‘Hard to face’. The band had a idea they came to the table with, so the process was to get that into an original format and try to keep it within budget. I did one shoot with the band in a nightclub in Bristol, and then a studio shoot and a location shoot both in Brighton. Actor/handyman Simon Brice helped to get the door up on Shoreham beach, before we rushed to get the scene done before the oncoming tide came in and consumed it. Ended up looking really surreal and plenty of beach walkers took an interest and selfies. Shot the water footage using a GH4 and housing with a Olympus 25mm 1.8 which gave a shallow look.
Great day filming with Bright Button Productions the other day at the sentencing of Alex Bateman, who stole a WW2 Dambusters logbook from the family. Emotional day for the family, and privileged to film a in depth interview with the family recording the immediate reactions to the trial. You an watch the ITV news report here.
Couple of stills from the interview and documentary.
Worked with the Nordic Giants to produce this teaser for their latest concept. You can support the fundraiser here. Used stills and royalty free images, bespoke music/sound design and shot a few pieces to fit together. All edited and animated in Premiere/AE.
Recently produced a short 3D animation for World Health Heroes , a new business having a rebrand and wanted a video to explain their core values.
Little short I made recently on a new piano addition.
Recently composed some music for ‘Call of the Void’ a web series produced by Zed Productions for Integrate Bristol dealing with radicalisation and racial stereotyping. Great team of talented people working on it.
Started off with composing a theme tune, building plenty of weird and wonderful sound fx into a glitchy based piece. The main body took mainly took a ambient based approach, finding subtle sounds and drones.
You can watch selected composition sections below.

After a night of brutal storms, the wind turned offshore, the sun came out and solid swell pumped through the channel. Here is a few shots taken in Lyme Bay.
Composition is a mixture of VST and a analogue synth, with good helpings of delay & reverb.
Recently was tasked with producing interesting visuals based around flowers. The client wanted them displayed in a cosmetics store on LED screens that wrapped around the interior building. The challenge was to find away of producing videos that worked in this format, so the footage passed from one screen to the next, creating a peaceful, engaging, colourful and interesting backdrop to draw people up the ecalators into the store.
I decided to have all the movement moving from left to right or vise-versa to accompany the movement of the escalator, moving with the customer as they travel into the store. This involved shooting everything on its side. Assisted by Neal Grundy, we filmed variations of different flowers using water, flower, paint and inks filming at 240fps.
Watch below a concept film called colours displaying some of the finished shots with compositing and effects.
