I’m shooting some product shots on Thursday for Francli, so I setup a mini studio on my desk to test it out. My clock did the honours of standing in for the products.

This is a short documentary film I shot for Adelan, a British Fuel Cell research company, that takes a look into Fuel Cell technology - where it is now, where it is going, and just how influential it could be to us in the future.

On Saturday I spent the day shooting alongside Jack Edwards and Felix Smith on a project for Rachel Wooding. The concept was based upon movement of the body, and Rachel’s idea was to show this by covering dancers in a hard plaster coating, then to have them start to move and dance, and to capture the cracking of the plaster as this happens.
It was amazing to be working with other people on this, especially Jack who is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to film-making. He also uses an Anamorphic setup (google it), which was really interesting. I learnt a lot, and am looking forward to editing with him.
These are a few snaps I took on my phone.
Francli are a small Cornish startup company making craftwear, such as small accessories and rucksacks, out of recycled materials. In the middle of last year I photographed a project they were doing with Glastonbury and Greenpeace, and now recently have been working with them again, this time on a short film.
The film is (was) to be released alongside the launch of the Francli online shop. Myself and Franki set out spending time with Francli ambassadors to capture the way in which they use their products as part of their lifestyle. I’m really stoked on how this turned out, and I had a bunch of fun meeting and shooting each person along the way. Editing was a fun process too because I had such a delicious bag of footage to play with.
Please check out Francli, they’re doing some crazy cool stuff. Enjoy.

Product shots of an LCD Panel designed for advertising by GoGo Digital Media. Avoiding the reflection was a nightmare, so I embraced the reflection instead. I think it works!

Ali from Francli Craftwear. We’ve been filming for their brand video to coincide with the release of their online store the last few days, along with some photographs for other promotional purposes. It’s been hilarious, you gotta check them out.

GoPros went from being new technology to ‘over-used’ in the space of 2 or 3 years, and it is always difficult to find new ways of using them in original ways.But check out this edit from the guys at Whistler Park. The angles, the cuts, the edit - everything feels original because its so fun and lighthearted! A 3 minute GoPro-only video that kept me guessing from start to finish - that doesn’t happen very often anymore. Nice work.
