I’ve been sharing bits of my work over on Instagram as part of ‘Social October’
Including this video, which was commissioned by the legendary jazz saxophonist Courtney Pine and features his band member, violinist Omar Puente.
I filmed, directed and edited the video whilst the band were performing in London.
It was such a memorable experience and honor to work with such talented musicians!
Hello everyone!! I hope you are well?
I’ve been fairly busy prepping a few new projects and creating content for Social October, you can view this on my instagram here!
Over the weekend I decided to create a paper animation featuring a horse from one of Muybridge’s famous photography experiments!
I started by cutting the horse shapes using my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine
I then created a basic grid on card and lined up the images whilst filming them on my camcorder.
I then created the animation below in my editing software.
I hope you like it!
What did you do over the weekend, anything creative?
Please share your projects!!!
Hello everyone, I hope you are well?
I finished adding a voice over to my painting ‘Inner strength’ which was completed a few months ago. This painting features a solar plexus chakra and in the video I explain why I have used this symbol.
I hope you enjoy the video :)
Hello!! I decided to make a new format of painting fast forward video which is more like a music video. I used to mix live visuals at events when I started my creative journey and it was fun to incorporate some of thos clips into a painting fast forward. The music is ‘I Saw You’ by Black Sun Empire
I’ve always loved Drum and Bass music, mostly because it is hectic and chaotic, which weirdly enough makes me feel more relaxed.. lol
As a little bonus here is one of the first videos I ever produced! It was filmed at a warehouse party callled the ‘Ministry of Unsound’ which was run by a freind, we had some amazingly wonderful times there!!
Hello, I visited the new Design Museum in London last month as it had moved from the South Bank near London Bridge to it’s new home in Kensington High Street on the site of the former Commonwealth Building.
I initially went on a hunt for images of the Technics 1200 turntable for a project that I’m working on, but when I saw that a new Ferrari exhibition was on I decided to take a look.
It is probably the best designed exhibition I’ve been to, second only to the amazing armour galleries of the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow
On arrival you walk into a cubical filled with red light, now I knew I was sensitive to colour and light but this was something else, I couldn’t breath and felt as if I was being attacked by the light, I started choking lol it was so funny.
Here is a video of my visit, I filmed it in my ‘Alien Eyes’ style of filming as i call it.. lol enjoy!
I made a video of myself painting the watercolour mix tape and there is a special visit to the Design Museum in London at the end.
I hope you enjoy it :)
Here is a new Throwback Thursday!! In 2010 I visited the beautiful city of Ghent in Belgium during the celebrations of at least 3 festivals! It was the Belgium National Day, the Ten Days Off clubbing festival as well as the Festival of Street Theatre.
I had a fantastic time, the city was alive with very friendly people, stages in each city square, a river side music festival, lots of really interesting street performances and mass tango dancing etc etc. I really felt I could stay for much longer and am looking forward to returning soon.
