This video I shot recently for Hunting Bears has lit up across the internet in the last couple of days. It’s just clocked up 4000 hits as I write this. Check out our other work at The Blind Club here - http://theblindclub.com
Filmed in the clock tower of Leeds Town Hall in the U.K., complete with bell chimes!
At The Blind Club we like putting the kettle on. So a Sunday morning with Hannah Trigwell was just the ticket after a hectic couple of days the week before. Sitting at our house, feet up in the window, Hannah looked at home, and we shot away comfortably. Hannah’s the kind of person that’s easy to shoot, playful in front of the lens, one that lights up the frame when she smiles, laughs and then giggles. Most of the day was spent therefore trying to put a crease in her face, and she happily complied. We’re really looking forward to working with her beautiful voice in the future. She’s something else. Oh. And she plays computer games too…
A recent photograph of mine..
I’ve not been very active on this blog lately, due to the amount of things going on over at The Blind Club - a company I have started with Matt Maude of Left Eye Blind.
This is one of my most recent photographs, from when I went down to London with Dinosaur Pile-Up.
Harry Johns of DINOSAUR PILE-UP, at The Koko in Camden.
At the beginning of this week (4thOct’10) Dinosaur Pile-Up released their debut album! I’ve not blogged too much in such a long while because almost all the work I’ve been doing has been building up to this release.
I’ve shot rolls and rolls of film with the band, in lots of different situations over the last 6 months, in doing so I built a strong relationship with the band and was asked to work on the album artwork, which I jumped at.
Matt Bigland and I decided on an idea for the cover image we decided on a look based on several key inspirations and we booked into the photography studio to get it down. To complete the imagery needed for the sleeve and inlay we hand picked a few images from the pool of photographs I’d created.
My close friend Kate Prior got on board the project early on and created all the typography by hand, and in the final stages took charge of the layout.
My short film I made while on a summer film school in Belgrade, Serbia this year. Written, Shot and Edited in 3 and a half days more-or-less. It was a rush to say the least, but rewarding.
I went to Belgrade, Serbia on a 8-day film school called ‘European Summer Film School’ a few weeks ago, I became a Director. I was the English representative, and there were 11 other young film-makers in the same position as me from all over Europe and America. In 3 day’s - give or take some hours - we all made 3 minute short films that we had written and developed while there.
Towards the end of the week we were treated with a private viewing of a film made by our mentor - Rajko Grlić, I nipped up and took this photo once everyone had taken there seats, just before the film.
