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.

PLASTIC LOVE - NOW ONLINE

I'm really pleased to announce that Plastic Love is now online and free to watch. It was a real labour of love for me and it couldn't have been made without the amazing cast and crew.

"A superb film, which mixes comedy and pathos to stunning effect."
Zombiehamster.com

"A surprisingly tactful and poignant take on a range of very personal and taboo subjects." BRWC/battleroyalewithcheese

"It's a vicars-in-knickers, curtain-twitching kind of titillation, turned up to eleven with warmth still in tact."
Script and Things

"A deeply perverse yet quintessentially British comedy."
Musings of a Film Fanatic

"The combination of genuinely poignant moments juxtaposed against the black comedy really makes the film memorable." Strangers in a Cinema

WENDY FROM LEEDS


I've finally found some time to put this short film online. I shot it around eighteen months ago with my friend Leanne Davis, a talented writer/actor/comedian. We were originally going to make Wendy into a ten part web series but like many things life and paid work got in the way. This short is the first three episodes cut together, filmed one afternoon in a dreary flat in Clapham Junction. I hope you enjoy it.

A bit more about Wendy in her own words:
Looking for love. Ideal man will have eyes and be able to breathe unaided but happy to negotiate for the right person, for anyone actually.
Wendy at home - Seagull Heights

Hair - Blonde (slightly greasy)

Eyes - Two (both working)

Height - 5ft 3" (5ft 6" in my slut heels)

Weight - Depends on when I last did a dump

Chest - That's for me to know and you to find out
