A short showreel made up of some of my favourite videos that I’ve had the chance to work on.
Jane Moore – Sketch A Day
Jane Moore, a London based artist, made a New Year’s resolution to sketch something every day for a year. In January 2015 all 365 sketches formed an exhibition in Hackney. The exhibition itself was opened to other forms of creative expression that included musicians, poets and workshops for schools across the community.
After just moving to London I wanted to get involved in something that I really thought was amazing, and to follow around someone who is also visually minded. This short film was a joy to make, and I can’t recommend Jane’s art enough.
Shapes, a mixed use venue in Hackney, commissioned me to make a quick promo video for their space to be used on Youtube and their website. It was to be mainly filmed from one night, a magazine launch with a lot of happy clubbers and amazing DJs. Jobs like this are always the fun ones!
Under The Bridge, a homeless charity based in Byker, Newcastle, runs a wood workshop. At the workshop, volunteers and participants refurbish old and unwanted furniture and sell them in two shops, one in Byker, the other in Heaton. Those at the workshop have had, at times, difficult lives, but this is not the focus of the short film. Instead it’s to look at what can happen when people are given a chance, somewhere to go and something to contribute.
