Recently I had the pleasure to use my services in creating a film which would be used on a Kickstarter campaign. The concept is custom watches, which have a fresh & simplistic look. Every detail is looked after, from the design of the watch all the way through to the case that it comes in. Every aspect has had meticulous attention paid to it, and the film was made to capture this. From the symmetrically aligned shots to the soft lighting & highlights, every frame was deliberately chosen to represent the brand as best as possible. The production of the film was done in a day, with the help of some of our friends too.     We shot this on an FS100 & a Black Magic camera, moving between the BMCC for a lot of the more static shots, and then the FS100 for the slow motion & detail shots. Lighting was all down to dedo’s and some photography studio continuous...

Naomi & Anthony

A sun filled day, so much blessing upon this day! Naomi and Anthony had their wedding along the peninsula down here in Melbourne. The Morning Star Estate to be exact!. It was an incredibly perfect day for film and photos, the sun came out to play, the architecture and gardens were blooming, it truly was special. And plus Naomi & Anthony really were so much fun to be with and shoot. Two brilliant souls coming together. I had such joy cutting this film together. Not only because this couple really had a incredible sense of closeness to each other, but also their closeness to God, together, was really showing through. Its what I really wanted to focus on when cutting this film together! I chose this song specifically because of the beautiful lyrics which keep repeating ‘Son of man, reach out your hand and fill our faith’. I think this really speaks volumes about who these...

Joyce & Charlie

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...
