Like a Kid in a Toyshop

Like a Kid in a Toyshop

When I am asked to produce something that I have never done before it is like being a kid with a new toy.

The toy is the idea. When you have the toy in front of you have a vehicle for play. Then come the Instructions, usually followed with leaving them in the box whilst you try to work it out yourself. This being usually longer but you have no concept of doing it any other way.

Until you sit down, scratch your head and look at the instructions. Then you think you know exactly how to assemble the toy.

When you go to play with the toy it does not always work, but this is great, the learning, playing, solving bit.

Every time you play with the toy you encounter different ways to play with it, until you realise that your imagination is actually the only limitation.

This is one of the things I love about filming, I get to play everyday.

Organic Mural Time Lapse

Organic Mural Time Lapse

Collaboration with Mel Saggs 7th Pencil (artist) and Luke Brown (musician).
It was wonderful to see the mural grow. I always feel privileged when someone asks me to capture their work, their passion. The music that accompanies the time lapse adds a beautiful atmosphere and is perfect to set the scene as the light fades during an actual storm outside. This is the first time lapse I have ever created, I learnt a lot from the 8ish hours of capturing this progression of work. I really hope it is just the beginning of working along side these two very talented creators.
