TERRY AND BRENDA REVIEWS

A few different websites/blogs have been kind enough to review Terry and Brenda, so I thought I'd collect them all in one place. If you want to review it tweet me at @FingercuffJAMIE.


"Offers a darkly comic view on middle-age partnership, as well as an exploration of the things some people will do to keep whatever shades of love there is left alive."

"It balances the humanistic comedy with the skeletons in the closet of England’s street. There's a sense that this couple will stick around in my mind for a long time."

"Impressive style and quality. It does a great job of building tension and unease throughout."

SUGAR AND VICE - WITCHING HOUR

Here's the latest promo I made for Sugar and Vice, a great company who specialise in acrylic jewellery. Inspiration was taken from the intros of TV shows such as AHS: Coven and True Blood. I'm pretty happy with it, especially as I finally managed to find a use for footage of my axolotls. I hope you enjoy it.

CLOGAU HERITAGE - DOWNTON ABBEY

Earlier this year I spent a few days at Highclere Castle, better known as Downton Abbey, to shoot behind the scenes on Clogau's Heritage campaign. Check out the video below.


Most exciting for me was the fact Stanley Kubrick filmed some of the orgy scenes from Eyes Wide Shut there. It was amazing to stand in the exact places he stood and see that nothing had really changed.

THE MAKING OF SOROR

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.
