I’ve finally found the time this month to put the finishing touches to my showreel. Most of the material in here is work from the past 12-18 months with a few snippets from older projects that I still like to show off.
2014 has gotten off to an exciting start with my main work being a personal short film project for the 2014 Reed.co.uk Short Film Competition.
The theme this year is ‘Family Business‘ and myself and fellow filmmaker Thomas Mould came up with a comedy script entitled ‘Success is Relative’. We shot the whole thing in a day in central London in early January and I then edited the film over the space of a fortnight to meet the competition’s 22nd January deadline. The finished film is now up online and available to view!
The stars of the film are: Andromeda Godfrey, Tom Bonington, Heather Skermer, Carmel Hannant, Matt Downton and Lucas Rushby (an 8 year old acting prodigy in my opinion!)
Recently I was asked to shoot the footage and timelapse material for the Lloyds Bank Tea Garden in Westfield, Stratford. Myself and Rob Holding set up camp within the shopping centre around 10pm and filmed the timelapse through until 9am. I then filmed the video segments until 2pm – a long shoot indeed. All shot on Canon 5D Mark III.
In November I was asked by Inspired Live to film the launch of the newly renovated Bury St. Edmunds Volkswagen garage. I spent half the evening shooting beauty shots of the classic and new models and the other half covering the event, shooting the guests and speakers.
