I'm a cinematographer, director and producer originally from Cornwall, England who works all over the world.
I involve myself in as many creative areas as I can. I will film anything (within reason) and enjoy working within a team. A lot of my work comes from the music industry, however I don't really like to pigeonhole myself into single categories. We all need to be flexible in our fields.
My other loves include surfing, music, swimming, great times with my good friends and good bone structures. I'm a film geek. I try to twist many things in my life with as much dry humour/weird humour as possible.
This site is a break down of my work, my life, my daily creative inspirations, antics on the road and various other random insights.
My early 20’s, summed up in a video. I just skateboarded, surfed, made stupid videos and then realised I should probably start thinking seriously about doing it a profession. Especially when I watched stuff like this and it gave me a buzz. This has to be the gratest skateboarding video of all time still to this day. Unquestionably.
"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."
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.
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.
I’m offering a one hour ‘one on one’ skype session with anyone who might be interested via the YOUR DEMISEIndiegogo 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.
The first video from the album, which I directed, comes next week. Watch this space for further details. Above is a photo I grabbed from the shoot which I think sums up the guys (and their new vibe) perfectly.
