The Cribs gave me a load of performances they had shot with a crusty old VHS camera and asked me to cut the performance side of this video as though it were a 90s karaoke bar video with subtitles animated. It was fun! I cut the performance, making sure I left in awkward moments and ‘bad’ cut techniques, then did a bad key and put in rank old stock footage, all in all, good fun, and a groovy homage to japanese karaoke bars the world over.
The Japanese footage was shot and cut in by their team over there, so it was in fact a unifying cross continental collaboration!
I Directed a bunch of films for Maille Mustard to promote their consierge service. You might recognise this suave french chap as Fred Sirieix from the Channel 4 series ‘First Dates’.
The films give tips and advice on hosting a dinner party, from what wines to pair with what foods to presentation and preparation.
Hapless gameshow presenter Spencer Brown (of Nathan Barley fame!!!) urges his contestants to Choose the Right Choice…..they tend not to.
This was so much fun to cut, I got to play about with ‘bad’ editing, using Garth Merenghi as a starting point and a lot of old gameshows. Awkward moments, awkward cuts and awkward acting = excellent. Great to have a client happy to not take themselves too seriously.
Phil Ashley directed these, and Rich and Clem at Karmarama were the creatives, produced by Sam Breen for Kream, edited by me.
Here’s a few nice little Suzuki spots I worked on with director Rory McKellar and producer Miles Wilkes at Rock Hound.
I was on set edit and VFX supervisor and then did the post and even contributed some sound. The pan pipes solo on the ‘Inuit’ version is not my finest work!
Occasionally my hobbies infiltrate my trade, and directing this trailer for the Theatre in the Square group where I played an irish bouzouki for the soundtrack prompted a full album and even a spot of performing live. Shakespeare provided the lyrics and I the music.
It can bought on itunes, spotify or listened to on soundcloud, click here!
These little beauties were directed by Rory Mckellar and shot by Charles Heales. I was onset editor and then offline, I also made the music for the Chinese and Indian takeaway ones, composed would be pushing it a bit!
These bumpers are for ITVs new ‘Back in the Room’ show, which is actually pretty funny, reminds me of being a youth and marvelling over Paul McKenna.
