I'm a director, cinematographer and producer originally from Cornwall, England who works all over the world.
I aim to involve myself in as many creative areas as I can. It's all part of being a better director. 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 aim is to be a features director.
My other loves include surfing, music, swimming and the wild. 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.
821,000 views. The target is 1,000,000 by the end of July. Can this be done? Yes is the only answer I hear in my head. It will be a record for me on a directorial level, and also a record for my company.
Speaking of my company, our new site is pretty much there. It’s just having the last few tweaks. With the launch of it comes with a lot of changes. New branding, new apparel, new slogan and a bunch of other things ‘new’. I won’t bore you with the details because I’ve posted a fair amount today, and talked too much. But I’ll be giving away 10 t-shirts to some blog followers (no matter where you live), and also some other stuff that I’ve got lying around (like limited edition screen prints, a deluxe version of the crime in stereo dvd etc etc).
Thanks to everyone for the continued support. I’m off to bed now to drink a lemsip and try and man up before a weekend of more work. See you on tour next weekend/month?
Over 800,000 views on one of my videos. Mindblowingly amazing. If it carries on at this rate then something i created will have been watched by close to a million people by the end of this year.
I really loved the colours that were surrounding us on the day. The organic feel. It was a simple concept that fitted what the guys wanted. Whats more Heart In Hand are actually one of the nicest bands I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Love these boys. Whats more we had a great time shooting this. Right behind the location was a path with benches and there were families stopping and watching all day. No one was an ass, it was awesome. We had our beloved tents set back up again and a generator powering the PA. My friend Amy played the featured main character on a different day, and did a great job. It worked out well because on the day the band played, it was gloomy, where as on the storyline day it was sunny. A good contrast to show how the girl had moved on to sunnier times and was being lead into a place where she would be reminded of a person from her past (someone in the band). I used a tilt shift look on the shots of the girl because I wanted to give the feel of the audience watching her through some sort of hidden point of view. Not like a camera but almost like you’re looking through a crystal ball secretly.
