Matters of Size – New Short Film

An experimental short film starring Alan Wallace, Corey Milne, Paul Russell and others in which objects and creatures are not their normal size. I had help with some rotoscoping from Keith Ard and Dan Corrales.

The film uses trick photography as much as possible. As with most projects, there is a lot of room for improvement but I think the final film is amusing enough! Thank you for checking it out.

Who Has An Ace – New Short Film

I recently directed & shot a short film at White Room Studios, produced by Alan Wallace and starring Adelina Hristova, Alan Wallace, Sean Hynes, Tom Hanson-Kahn and Michelle Nyberg. The film focuses on a high stakes poker game. A smokey, “grainy” look was chosen for the film and a cheesy 80s soundtrack brought some of the action to life. Despite some sound deficiences and a few lighting/grading niggles I achieved my objectives for the project. Check it out below.

Today I earned three new credits as director on IMDB (plus three pending writer credits). You can view them here! These came as the three films were picked up for distribution; check them out here on my site under the “my own film work” section.

In addition, a film I worked on earlier in the year will feature on BBC 2 (Scotland) as part of the Landward segment. Broadcast date is Friday 18th October from 7pm.

PlayStation Themed Mini Project

For fun, I made this short PlayStation themed mini advert (?) cut to music. I created the visuals using a UV light with a blue gel placed on a rowing machine, which I moved backwards and forewards, catching the paintwork on the console in interesting ways. For one shot, the camera took it’s place – the rowing machine taking on the job of a dolly track. I did very little with the colours; the only grading performed was to bring the blacks up in order to crush some of the unwanted detail on the table cloth underneath the console and controller…

Overall, this was an enjoyable mini project. It took 6 hours to complete. I aim to learn more about Cinematography in order to become more employable in the role.

Star Trek Mini Project

I had a few hours spare over the past week or so. I threw together this Star Trek fan film which takes the form of a fake advert for a position aboard the Enterprise-D. Functional 3D was done using Element 3D by VideoCoPilot. Meshes were obtained from trekmeshes.ch. Voiceover by Mariah Sinclair. This video is based on Star Trek franchise, copyright Paramount. Please see notice at the end of the video.

This was a great learning project, you can see the video below the screenshots below.

NOTE: You can support the restoration of the Enterprise D bridge here.
