2011 was a really busy year! Loads going on, all of it exciting. Here’s a quick run down of what I got up to last year and a quick look at what’s coming up for 2012.
February saw the release of my first short film, The Wraith. Starring Angharad Jones and narrated by Bernard Hill it tells the story of a young woman trapped in limbo between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Official selection for the Crystal Palace International Film Festival 2011.
We Show Up On Radar – I’ll Be A Ghost
We had the honour of making the music video for WSUOR’s I’ll Be A Ghost. The song still sends shivers down my spine. I hope our video does it justice, see for yourself. You can see the ‘Making Of’ here.
In Spring, I was impaled on a sword while shooting the book trailer for Giles Kristian’s ‘Odin’s Wolves’. I didn’t mind because the film is awesome!
The summer was long and balmy and we spent a week of it larking around in the Lincolnshire countryside with our good friends at Red Dog Film and Urban Apache Films. The project was a spec trailer for a feature film called ‘Humans’. The trailer is still in post-production so for now take a look at some photos from the shoot.
We Show Up On Radar – The Anchors In Your Heart
In September we were asked to do a second music video for We Show Up On Radar. Their beautiful song ‘Anchors In Your Heart’ was irresistible. The official release for the promo is in the New Year so here’s the Making Of.
Ulysses Storm – Franska The Bear
The end of the summer saw a massive downpour which forced us to cancel our exterior shoot for the Ulysses Storm music video and we instead took it indoors. So instead of harassing people in the park, our bear went to a dance audition instead.
October was filled by our second short film shoot for ‘Pr0xy’. A film about a young woman who stalks people by hacking into their social networks and lives her life by proxy. The film is in post-production now and will be completed for the Spring. Many thanks to Zacuto for the equipment loan!
By The Winter Sea
Last but certainly not least, I teamed up with Phil Stevens from Urban Apache Films to create a film for Red Dog Film and Lincolnshire County Council. The film is set during WWII and tells the story of Ada, a young woman who leaves London to become a land girl on a Lincolnshire farm.
The shoot took 6 days and gave us the opportunity to get all the toys out of the box, a RED One MX, a steam train, a 1937 Austin 7 Ruby and a load of pyrotechnics! The film is in post right now and will be completed early in the New Year.
Look out for lots more in 2012 including more shorts, music promos and robotic puppets!
Have a great Christmas and New Year,
