Joyce & Charlie

By on Sep 30, 2014 in Weddings | 2 comments

I got to know Joyce through her brother who I am friends with, and it was truly a wonderful experience to film her wedding also. From the beautiful old buildings in Camberwell to the sun bathed gardens in Carlton, this film has truly been a joy to cut together. The shoot itself was almost like coming in and filming a long time friends wedding. Joyce & Charlie were so open and helpful, they really let the creativity flow and there was no problem in getting along with the rest of the bridal party either! It took about 15 hours to put this piece together with tweaking and colour corrections too! This was all filmed on my FS100, along side a 7D which was used for some shots. Premiere Pro accompanied me for the editing process, definitely a step up (in my opinion) above Final Cut which I started out on in the early days! There was a lot of symbolism and thought put into the placements...

Jacob & Esau

One of my latest projects that i’ve been working on (and quite possibly one of my favourites!) has been a film for the Pozible campaign of Jacob & Esau. This is a little bit about J&E, taken from their website. Jacob & Esau is an ethical fashion label based in Melbourne, Australia. While there are many ways for us to be sustainable, we have chosen to focus on the people who make our clothes. For our first collection, we have teamed up with local garment makers in Bali, Indonesia. Kholil and Wiwik are a husband and wife team who recently started running their sewing business from home. We have chosen to support and invest in their home business vision. This was in fact started by 2 of my friends from church & life, Jo & Esther. Both have come together from different educational backgrounds, with a passion for people & fashion. It’s truly a wonderful...

The Pong 2014

Finally! A new post for the masses. I’ve been out of action on the blogosphere for sometime, I’ve been busy busy! This has been one of my latest projects that I’ve finished, which is linked into my previous trip to Thailand & Cambodia. I was there earlier in the year filming with Adrian Rowse, capturing footage for this promo film that I have just finished cutting! The idea of the PingPongAThon is that a group of guys get together to play table tennis. Mind you, it’s for 24 hours.┬áThese guys raise money to bring awareness to sexual trafficking of boys in south east asia. The money goes to organisations and NGO’s working on the front lines of this dark industry. I cut it in about a 2 days, with a very keen grin. It actually is a bit of fun cutting together some dubstep paddle smashes, especially with middle aged men! It shows a great comedic skilful...

Community Arts Tokyo has a fantastic vision which I have come to love over the last week. I first contacted Abi & Roger Lowther over a year ago to see if I could come check out their ministry in Tokyo, and see what I could potentially do with them! I honestly didn’t know to much about them before I met them, as it was really hard to get in contact since they are so incredibly busy! One of the things they lack currently is an office space, and an events space to really work at full capacity in their ministry. This will happen eventually I’m sure, there are just some interesting road blocks for christian organisations in Japan. Community Arts Tokyo (or CAT as we all refer to it now hah!) has a real focus on using art to bring together a community of people, to reach out to those who don’t know christ, but also to encourage people to use their god given talents &...

A Joyful June

Last week I arrived in Japan, astounded by what I came into, blown away by the culture and the people, and ended up having an incredible time meeting new people too. Last week was a one week long stint of creative evangelism in which 7Media were running. 7Media is an organsation run out of Tokyo which essentially focuses on creating multi-media to creatively reach with the gospel a generation through 7 areas of influence. Or the 7 mountains as some might know them. I actually contacted them to see if I could help out, as I definitely see a great need for media to be used as a tool to reach out to the Japanese people. Film tends to be a very effective way of communicating to Japanese people. More so than any other artistic medium. From the people I’ve spoken to who live here, they have all said that it definitely seems to be that way. You don’t have to look far either, the...
