December 2014 I designed this beermat-themed flyer for a pub-themed
sell-out site-specific musical history show in the maze of derelict
rooms underneath Shoreditch Town Hall.
I also wrote and performed a monologue. More info coming soon. For now please see here.
East End Backpassages - the book is on its second print-run
and is available in the likes of Foyles, The Whitechapel Gallery and
The Tate Modern. It includes my photos and photo-montages. (Am assuming this means that I'm allowed to
claim that my work's in The Tate.)
On Saturday 13 June we return to
Shoreditch Town Hall to present a work-in-progress performance, 59 of
I'm about to embark on a trip to the Isle of Arran.
I'm taking a 16mm Bolex with me. Here's a quick test I filmed (off a Steenbeck screen onto an Iphone so please excuse the quality). The film was shot and hand-processed in about an hour thanks to James Holocombe's knowledge of chemistry! He showed me how to mix traditional chemicals and also Caffenol. More details under the Youtube film.
More info coming soon.
A Film For Frank
In development. Colour 16mm & 8mm archive. More info coming soon.
I was asked to create an animation to help promote Helen Keen's radio show, It Is Rocket Science. Gareth the producer, Helen and her writing partner Miriam Underhill liked it which made me very happy!
I wrote and photoshopped a photo-story for this magazine published by Backpassage Tours. It's available to buy at our live events and in The Brick Lane Bookshop.
Please excuse the typos. I actually ended up designing and laying out the whole magazine in InDesign. Luckily one of our troupe, Sarah Wise, used to work in magazine publishing and so was able to give me a few pointers.
Anyway, I'll upload some stills when I get a chance. I'm proud of the artwork - if not the leading and kerning!
(Top Secret) After Effects Character Animation
I did some very good work with some folks a while back - but it was for an in-house project and we are not allowed to post it online as it stars members of the general public/their staff. Please get in touch if you would like to see the animation and find out who did what. I'm really proud of it! Such a shame we can't shout it from the rooftops!
Concrete Gym Mats
Oh well We haven't made the Bafta shortlist.
film was very much liked by the panel but unfortunately the jury had
to rule that it's just not a fiction film and so cannot go any
further in the process.
(There's no short documentary category
but there is a drama-doc loophole in the fiction one. As it was a
highly stylised treatment of a story I hoped it it might just make it
Happily George wasn't too disappointed
personally. He laughed and said he didn't mind me telling the powers
that be that the film is fictional - because he made it all up.
Best headline EVER / must've been a
very slow week day in Alveston / can't believe they printed my silly
joke about trying to enter it into a different category.
And because I'm told that this website
is supposed to be all about me showing off and not just me having a
good old laugh at myself - here's some links to some very nice
national press about the film - including a review in the Telegraph
The Matt Lucas Awards
just started work on a really fun job - a tiny bit of animation for
the title sequence designed and directed by Mal Hartley.
