Videography

I currently use a Blackmagic 6K Cinema Camera, a Canon EOS C300, a Sony A7Sii and a Canon 5D Mk 3. Three banks of flat panel LEDs allow me to shoot pieces to camera in just about any location and I have track and gimbals too.

Here’s the latest showreel. I shot most of this but the stuff with Cush Jumbo at the top was shot by cameraman Justin Evans.

When Radio 1’s Greg James got together with BBC Creative and Stink films to create a new season of promos they asked me to make a behind the scenes film for the first promo called “Kick Ass”. Using a Canon C300 and Sony A7Sii I just about managed to stay out of trouble apart from one wayward sausage.

Short film for Ericsson where I got to travel and shoot some 4k B-Roll of their operations in Paris, Hilversum and London.

Written, filmed and directed by me for a season of programs on BBC World News exploring how work may look very different in the not too distant future. Starring Jason Riddington-Smith and Kattreya Scheurer-Smith. Special Fx design work by Michael Drayton.

Written, filmed and directed by me in New Broadcasting House during the piloting phase for this new program.

Nova’s Basement “White Out” music video shot on a Canon 5D Mkii in a flat in the East End of London and The Notting Hill Arts Club.

Test music vid shot on the banks of Lake Michigan using the track Artangel by Grimes.

Michelle Keegan from Our Girl chats to her boyfriend from her humanitarian army base in Kenya. Shot this in her on-set trailer in Manchester.

Bit of green screen with Greg James to explain the original BBC Music App.

Radio 2 asked me to film some celebrities talking about their favourite words for their 500 Words campaign. I was lucky enough to meet and film Rita Ora, Lauren Pope from TOWIE, Nathan from The Wanted, presenter Edith Bowman, Stevie J from Made In Chelsea and Madeleine Harris from Paddington 2. These were all fast turnaround shoots where you get a limited amount of time with the talent.

A very quick shoot with Maya Jama and Peter Crouch for their Euros show in 2021. We literally had five minutes to get this.

The return of Peaky Blinders in 2020 meant I got to film some interesting stories from people who love the show.

Another wrote, edited and filmed promo for BBC World News, this time for Business Live shot at New Broadcasting House with Sally Bundock and Ben Thompson.

A series of vox pops captured in and around Shepherds Bush and Notting Hill Gate for the beauty brand, This Works. Shot in winter where the ambient light is close to perfect for this type of work.

And now a film commissioned by one of my favourite clients, Sarah Chapman. This was a quick turnaround film she needed for Space NK filmed at her state-of-the-art clinic in Sloane Square.

A commission from Sternberg Clark. This event was a sort of expo of bookable acts and took place one night at the Ivy in Seven Dials in 2017.

A short film for the Leighton Denny Expert Nails brand. Filmed, edited, background royalty free music composed by me and all delivered in six days. It was such an honour to work with Leighton who really is a one take wonder and totally committed to his brand and his staff.

Another film for Sarah Chapman this time for a product called Skin Insurance

Ericsson approached me to make a follow up film to one I made for them about IBC which they could show internally.

A short film made for Chantimedia about the amazingly talented dancer Niquelle LaTouche.

Two films for Nuxellence UK.

Highly productive shoot with Sarah Chapman. This is one of sixteen 1 to 3 minute films we managed to capture in just one eight hour shoot day.

A commission from the beauty brand This Works. A series of pieces to camera with the founder of the company Kathy Phillips and then a series of B-Roll elements of people trying out the products. All the footage was converted to NTSC and sent to SNBC in the United States to edit together for a commercial.

Another film commissioned by Chantimedia, to explain the attraction of beauty pageants and in particular, one held last year at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill Gate, London for Miss Caribbean UK.

Some more vox pops filmed for This Works the modern natural Beauty brand.

Another film commissioned by Chantal Miller and the carnival specialists  Bacchanalia shot just prior to Carnival 2012.
