Here's the making of film I made for Soror, Fingercuff's most recently finished short film. Hopefully it's an interesting watch for any filmmakers and film lovers.

THE BEST CAMERA IS THE ONE WITH YOU

I recently got back from a much needed holiday in Nerja, Spain. I didn't take any camera kit with me so I utilised my iPhone to capture small moments here and there (whenever I remembered to film). I have the iPhone 5s, which is really a marvel of technology, especially the 120fps mode. The quality of the footage is pretty amazing considering it's from a phone that fits in a pocket.

TERRY AND BRENDA TEASER POSTER (ANOTHER ONE)

Had a spare couple of hours today so decided to make another teaser poster for Terry and Brenda. It was inspired by an 80s slasher film with a great poster. Can you guess which one?

TERRY AND BRENDA - TEASER TRAILER

I'm pleased to announce the teaser trailer for Terry and Brenda is now online. We're halfway through production, with two more days of shooting to go. So far I'm beyond happy, the cast and crew have exceeded my expectations and everything is looking and sounding amazing.


For any technical people, I'm shooting this short film entirely on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, which I'm really impressed with so far. For a Super 16 sensor it's surprisingly good in low light.

I hope you enjoy the trailer.

SUPER 8 PUTNEY

Last year I bought a Movexoom6 Super 8 camera off eBay. I've always wanted to shoot something on Super 8 film so I invested in a few rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100D. I used two of the rolls on a paid job for a client, which will be viewable online in the near future. I used the spare roll whilst on a walk around my local area of Putney, in London.

 
It was so much fun shooting on Super 8, I especially love hearing the noise of the film rolling through the gate. With digital technology everything is so immediate, you can watch back what you've just recorded at the press of a button, so it was quite refreshing not knowing exactly what the footage will look like, and having to wait a couple of weeks for it to be processed and telecined. The video below is pretty much the roll of film as it was shot, minus a couple of edits here and there. I hope you enjoy.
