  • London’s Alive

    London’s Alive

    This was a pretty interesting project. This was also the first ‘professional’ project that I directed as well as edited. This was a promotional film for Visit London, and we teamed up with Urban Freeflow (awesome Parkour crew, as seen on Top Gear etc) to dress them up as iconic London figures and get them to do their free running in and around London. This was great fun to shoot (I did a load of camerawork on this as well) […]

  • Viral vs Viral

    Viral vs Viral

    This was a pilot for a game show pitting two bands against each other to make a viral music video in just 48 hours. The final show was 30′, but to save time this is the teaser trailer, which should give you more than just an idea of how the show worked stylistically.

  • Virgin Red Room

    Virgin Red Room

    This was a show I edited and directed called ‘Virgin Red Room’. It is basically a presenter led music show with interviews and performances. This is a cut down to give you an idea of what the show is like. All editing, colour correction and camera work was done by myself.

  • Visit London Awards

    Visit London Awards

    This is one of the idents I cut for the Visit London Awards. I guess the main reason they are interesting is because I was briefed to ‘rip-off’ the look of X-Factor. Judge for yourself how well I did! p.s. You may well recognise the voice over guy as well!

  • Fashion Vs Sport

    Fashion Vs Sport

    This is one of the pieces from the ‘What’s On’, a show I cut for London TV. This one is all about the Fashion Vs Sport exhibition at the V&A Museum. Not much else I can really say about it to be honest! For the geeks amongst you, I did all the on-line and on-line on an Avid Adrenaline, and it was shot on DVCPRO.

    Free Running (Sort of)

    By rights, this has no business being on my showreel site, but I did it and rediscovered it looking for something else the other day. It made me laugh so I thought I would stick it on here! It started off as a test shoot for a new camera we were using at London TV for a shoot I was going to cut the following week. We left the office at 2pm, grabbing a mate who wasn’t doing much (it […]

  • Mirrorkicks – “Anything”

    Mirrorkicks – “Anything”

    This was a neat little music video I cut for Mirrorkicks. Most of the video was filmed backwards and at varying speeds (and a total nightmare to sync up as a result!) but it did mean we got this amazing ‘hand cranked’ footage effect – just what we wanted. The video is pretty eerie, and the use of ipods is pretty clever (again an absolute nightmare to sync up since the iPods/iPhones run at 30fps and we were shooting at […]

  • The Listening Post

    The Listening Post

    This is another program I am currently working on for Al Jazeera. It’s an interesting job cutting rapid turn around news and current affairs instead of long form docs and films, and certainly a nice break from the norm. I am doing a mixture of on-line and off-line for each show (which is good practice for my on-lining skills), but obviously is much more fun cutting the actual stories (often against super tight dead lines) In a few weeks they […]

  • Hatcham Social – ”Sidewalk”

    Hatcham Social – ”Sidewalk”

    This is a music video I cut for Hatcham Social. The idea was to create a piece that looks like it was shot in one take. Now I hate to ruin the illusion, but it was about 20 takes stitched together!!!! So how does it still look like one take??? Well that would be telling, but part of it is that I am very good at what I do! The other part is a secret (but I am sure if […]

  • Peter Pan

    Peter Pan

    This was a film I cut for London TV, and presented by Dan Snow, about the Peter Pan live show taking place in Kensington Gardens. Not sure what else to say about this one to be honest! It did involve a lot of liaising with a graphics guy to get all the effects put together on time, but I think the end result was pretty good.

  • And The Beat Goes On

    And The Beat Goes On

    This is a feature length documentary following Jimmi Mistri as he travels around Ibiza in search of the true ‘spirit’ of the island that lurks behind the boozed up brits abroad image that the island often finds itself associated with. The film features interviews with a ‘Who’s Who’ of dj’s including Pete Tong, David Guetta, Danny Rampling to name just a few. The film will be getting a theatrical release this year (stay tuned for more info on that). In […]

    New York (GH-1 test shoot winter 1080i50 played at 1080p25)

    New York test shoot!! I found myself in possession of a Panasonic GH-1 this Christmas (thank you to the girlfriend!) and I have started shooting random bits and bobs on it. This is basically a few bits of video I took from a recent trip to New York. I quite liked it so I decided to post it up here! Basically, I was wanting to experiment with taking 50 FPS footage and slowing it down to 25 FPS by changing […]
