Cinematography

The Manor

We spent a couple of enjoyable days at an atmospheric stately home near Oxford, to test some new techniques and find ways of telling stories with the augmented reality app Blippar.

The project was conceived as an experiment in bridging the gap between still images and moving content.

Although the images can be viewed independently, by scanning them with an augmented reality app they come to life, revealing extra layers of information.

Is it just business as usual at the Manor, or is there a more sinister undertone to the activities of the individuals?

Thanks to Lou at LouLou Productions, Rachel Caulfield at ERA, as well as all the talent and crew that made it happen on the day.

Merchant Archive SS16 film

I was asked by Olivia Beasley to be cinematographer on a short film that she was directing for the London based fashion company Merchant Archive. The shoot took place for two days at Dungeness in the south of England.

One of the largest expanses of shingle beach in Europe, Dungeness is such an eerie place, completely unique and wonderfully bleak. With catering every day from the appropriately named 'Snack Shack at the Fish Hut', the great crew Olivia put together wasn't complaining about the long and occasionally drizzly days.
