Just spent a week in Cannes for my first Lions festival, covering the Youtube beach with a small team from the production company 'Above and Beyond'. Shooting and cutting 3 talks a day and contributing to daily sizzle edits. Nice to have our work tweeted by Google!
Just cut 18 different short form adverts for Right Guard. Broadcast on Sky One as sponsorship bumpers for the James Corden show 'A League of Their Own'. Aslo did some sound work on set during the shoot. Production company: Vanity Brothers.
Had the pleasure of directing from Google's shiny new control room at their new St Pancreas HQ. Via Andy Boyle @ Above and Beyond.
Just created a promo for Bear Grylls new live tour. Working with Vanity Brothers and Visual Edge Media, I helped shoot and edit a short promo to promote the action packed new arena production.
Another successful year at the Wimbledon championships. This year we doubled Evian's targets getting 12 million views, over the 13 days. A punishing schedule of night editing, I delivered a new edit at 8:30am each morning. This year we had a great team, fun celebrities on the couch, and Murray winning!

Here's a behind the scenes look at what we got up to:
Had a great weekend at Glastonbury, cutting a sub mix of the BBC cameras for the West Holts Stage screens. Roisin Murphy, Underworld and Earth, Wind and Fire were among the highlights.
Continuing the tour visuals work, I just made a video via RMV Productions, for the artist Fleur East, for her track 'Baby Don't Dance'. Watch out for it on her UK tour over the summer.
Recently had the chance to make some tour visuals for the opera group, Il Divo, as they continue their world tour. Shot on Red dragon at 100fps and composited in after effects. Was a fun change to shoot something all on my own, with a tiny location and a couple of props.
Just completed this 'unboxing' advert for Universal music. Very happy with the smooth key-framing of the movements.
Just created some motion graphics assets and titles for two new shows on the Machinima channel on the Sony Playstation Vue network. 'Sandbox' is a show dedicated to the game Minecraft, and 'All Systems Go!' is an all around geek chat show. Creating a variety of elements from lower thirds & stings to transitions and titles, all based around one theme was great fun. Full Boat Productions in Hollywood, found my work on Vimeo, whilst looking for an animator who could work in a 'low poly' style.
Just flown over to Jersey with Video Design to direct cameras for a small festival featuring some big names. Rudimental continued their never ending festival appearances, along with The Vaccines, Clean Bandit and Years & Years. My highlight of the weekend was discovering 'Slaves' , such raw power for a two person act.
Currently doing some shooting and editing onsite at the Olympic stadium. Capturing the last few days of the stadiums re-construction using timelapse, and some highlights of the athletics action for play out on the screens to the 60,000 crowd. Here's a little pic I snapped of Jess Ennis-Hill while out on the field.
Just completed two weeks of night edits on 'wimblewatch'. The show for sponsor, Evian, took a daily look at the events at Wimbledon through the eyes of celebrities and fans including Lee Mack, Greg James, Mel Sykes and many more. With millions of views everyday across all channels, the campaign far exceeded projected figures.

Just created a banging show opener for an Audi graduation event in London. The event branding of a newton's cradle was recreated along with pulsing low poly art to fill the back of the stage at the start of the show.
Had a great time directing for the mainstage imag screens for Video Design. With artists including Disclosure, Rudimental, George Ezra and a half naked Grace Jones.
Just completed directing a promo for a fantastic party orchestra. I've had the pleasure of filming these guys before, during rehearsals and live shows, and it's always spine tingling being present. But we'd never captured them properly, in a way that does them justice.
So with the help of Kippertie doing photography at 4K on one of their Red Dragon's, we finally shot the complete orchestra at 3 mills studio in London.
Here's my EDIT.
Just spent 10 days out in Qatar for the UN crime Congress. Was hired by Creative Technology to direct and vision mix cameras in one of the many rooms across the large event. Ended up standing in for the editor, cutting daily news packages instead. News style editing made a nice change from my normal style, but I wouldn't want to do it everyday.
Here's a clip of Highlights of the Event
Just added this blog so I could update the world on the kind of things I've been up to.
