Domaine Gayda located in Brugairolles, South of France. An amazing winery, owners of many organic vineyards in the surrounding areas. In 2016 they asked us for a new video to show their passion and identity in making their wines, covering their many 'terroirs' without making an obvious wine video. I wrote, directed, edited, co-produced this video for Insitu productions and Domaine Gayda. I am very proud of this film. I was allowed to go 'cinematic' with the approach whilst keeping in tone with the subject matter, avoiding more traditional winery films.

Meticulously Made - Cyco Coffee
I wouldn't say that I'm a major coffee fan, but I do enjoy a good coffee. The coffee at my local cafe 'Cyco' is simply gorgeous. So nice I asked the proprietor about the roast and process of making this coffee. I liked it so much I asked if I could make a small little video about his cafe. Its funny how we show appreciation.

'4T48' - Kowa Anamorphic Lens test with Canon 550D - Test.
PLEASE NOTE * This is an anamorphic LENS TEST!!! There is minimal story here!!! Trailer for the Festival Short Film here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghXyqYmmW4g We shot this featuring with talented actress Melissa Clements. Before the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour film challenge 2014, I wanted to see how the Kowa Anamorphic lens would operate so we performed this test with a 550D with its stock 50mm lens and the Kowa. I wanted to stay as low-profile as possible so I didn't use a rig, diopters (would need a matt box for diopters), nor a monitor. I wanted to test the possibility of shooting sci-fi styled short with no effects relying on the architecture and street lights. I edited this in Avid - transcoded the footage to DNxHD 36 - and performed a light grade in Davinci. So aside from the title page no visual effects have been added. Its a bit soft/out of focus at times and a bit shaky in places - for close-ups you really are supposed use diopters, but I am happy with it in general and Melissa's performance was so good the whole thing inspired my composer friend to create a brand new piece of music. Next time I think I'll use everything I didn't use this time and maybe a camera with a bit more resolution, though the 550D did impress me. I love the anamorphic look and will be using this on a short film soon. P.S. - The Kowa is a x2 Anamorphic lens so the aspect ratio is bit wider than normal cinema anamorphic stretch.
The Great Vote Trailer 2015
Trailer for the free web series 'The Great Vote'. A political satire about the extreme rhetoric we listen to from parties who present themselves as reasonable champions of your rights. In every reasonable argument their is an extreme, can we really get rid of our problems by ridding ourselves of the people? Each episode is based on a genuine opinion from real people. Originally published on the you tube from 2010, this no-budget series has waited for the right time to be promoted. 'The Great Vote' is a prequel spin-off of a feature film.
This is an experimental fight shoot. Though I have made short films with action sequences I have never filmed a fight scene between two people. So when actor Kiel O'Shea asked me if I would film one of his fight sequences I thought it would be a great opportunity. The fight was originally choreographed for stage by our Fight Director Lewis Penfold so we had to slightly modify it so it could be shot on film. This ended up being a six hour shoot with rehearsal time so it was quite tight. It was also filmed with very limited space. As a first attempt I'm pretty happy with the results. I learned a HUGE amount for the next! Music was supplied by my long time collaborator and brilliant musician composer Elliott Daniels.
