"You gotta aim towards the things that make you like yourself, forget everything else" - Matt Berninger

"Back then not sleepin’, I’d lay awake and think about women. The days are nothing. Look everybody knows there’s something wrong with them. Everybody’s got an empty space; an absence. And that’s the silence of God, and it don’t go away. And everybody wants some cathartic narrative for it. The guilty especially. But everybody’s guilty you know that. I used to think about it more but when you reach a certain age you know who you are. I know who I am."

Go grab a copy of the new Gojira DVD

It’s the latest live release which I’ve directed and was one of the biggest shoots Brixton Academy has ever had in terms of cameras (21). I’m proud of not only how good it looks but how insane the audio sounds. I’m working with some seriously talented people and it excites me when stuff like this finally gets released. The edit was handled in house by Gojira’s own man, but never the less it’s great to be in charge of such a monumental project. 

Shortly after they finished playing, Ghost took to the stage. That’s one band which really blows my mind. So interesting and mysterious!

Anyways grab a copy please from Gojira’s webstore. 

Directing an advert in Shoreditch the other week (looking and feeling tired as hell) with Alex Cribbs one of my camera guys Alex Cribbs. Photo by Josh Mansfield. 

Here’s the trailer for the yourdemiseofficial documentary I’m directing. This gives you more of an idea of what we’re going for with this release. It will be available on blu-ray/DVD/digital download in early summer of this year. 

You can pre-order a copy of it, or one of the ‘1 on 1’ masterclass’ I’m hosting by visiting the link below.

Got some stuff to ask me? Want a masterclass?

I’m offering a one hour ‘one on one’ skype session with anyone who might be interested via the YOUR DEMISE Indiegogo campaign. It’s your chance to ask me anything about filmmaking, get some tips and secure feedback on your next couple of pieces of work. You’ll have my undivided attention for the hour and in this period we can talk about any aspects of my job you wish or I can talk you through the process’ I have for different parts of my work. It’s kinda like a private masterclass. Alternatively we can talk about anything you want (within reason) haha.

There are 5 of these slots available at £40 each. If you’re interested go take a look at the project now. There are 39 days remaining. I’ll also throw in as a thatfilmduderyan.com exclusive a free download of the documentary in whatever format you wish. 

Thanks everyone! Rx

Check out the documentary I produced for one of Chuck’s musical outlets ‘The Revival Tour’. It’s an insight into the music side of his world and the people he tours with. The tour is actually designed to not have him on board eventually, and it’s setup is largely made for any type of folk/acoustic musician. 

I was privileged to be on the road witnessing such talent, and the documentary remains one of my favourite pieces of work to this day.
