Autumn 2014 Round-up

2:AM Poster

Occasionally an individual photo will be released here and there, but it doesn’t validate a blog post of it’s own. Instead I’ll just quietly add them to the Gallery page. With the release of 2:AM’s key poster today, I figured that it’s a good time to show off  some of what’s been released recently.

Stepping Above The Line

I’ve always dabbled a little bit with the production side of movie making, mostly out of just giving a hand where one is needed in the complex process of making a film. However I’ve never, ever took charge of an entire project. Until now that is. For some reason I answered the beckoning call of endless work and chaos wrangling!

I’ve been asked by the London based charity Roots & Shoots to produce a  high quality creative media supplement as part of their display at this years RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Working with director Chris Cronin we’re creating a <5 minute B&W silent movie that shows the story of a 1914 manor house and how the community handles the loss of it’s gardeners who are sent off to fight in The Great War. The awesome part is that all the cast are students and staff or friends of Roots & Shoots, which gives it a charm that would be difficult to obtain with professional actors.

We’ve just wrapped on Principal Photography and are now in post-production! If time isn’t too hard to find, I’ll write about my experiences of heading a highly non-traditional short production.

In the mean time I’m going to let the power get to my head and enjoy the power of releasing my stills without having to worry! Believe it or not, these photos were only taken in last week! Have a look at this wonderful, beautiful location!

New Year, New Photos!

It’s a huge shock to the system to get back into the swing of things after spending the entire Christmas period away from the computer, having one of these rumoured things normal people call “holidays” where your work brain switches off entirely.

Couple of things to show off! First off – New Large Format photo! Secondly – Exclusive stills from the next work in progress Chris Cronin film! Woo! Content releases!

Tech Hunt – Large Format

The first photo today is one of the successful Tech Hunt experiments from over a year ago! Originally shot as an examination to my critical focusing skills with a large format camera, it’s been decided that the photo is good enough for you, the wonderful public to enjoy! (Image actor – Michael Collin) – Click to embiggen!

Also, because I cannot get enough of it, a 1080p anamorphic crop!

I’ll be writing a follow-up article about the techie stuff behind these Large Format photos over the coming days – I didn’t want to clog up a sweet collection of photos with boring details.

Exclusive!

Next up are a smattering of key stills from the next, mysterious Chris Cronin film, hinting at things to come! This first still really should be viewed as big as your screen can make it! Click and embiggen it up! Exclamation marks!
