An Apple a day...

We shot these clips for Apple's Health App earlier this summer. A great deal of clever rigging went into this shoot.

The Dot // SHOOT No. 2

The Dot is a short film Alex and I are currently designing. It is an ongoing project - having started 10 months ago with our third shoot scheduled at the end of the summer. We're pretty excited about it.
Here are a few photos from Shoot number 2. 'The Red Room.' This shot features a cascade of pills falling in slo-mo through a psychiatrists library set. 

My original sketch. I wanted this room to be symmetrical and solid red. It seemed an obvious choice given the mahogany tones that would traditionally occur in a room like this, and the purpose this set serves in the script. 
I'm keen for the 'dot' or 'circle' to be a subliminal motif throughout the film,  so every architectural feature, piece of furniture or decorative element was designed/ sourced with this in mind.

Early stages of build
Yes. Those are tiny practical wall lights. (At this stage we decided to switch the busts for the phrenologist wall charts hanging above the console tables.) We also decided against spindle bannisters and instead designed a lovely wrought iron railing for the balcony. I love this. 

On Set
Rubbish shot of the monitor during the tracking. With any luck we'll soon have some professional stills to replace my shambolic photography. A big thank you to Scenic Sets for their ever reliable later cutter, and to Veronica our talented miniature upholsterer. 

Summer Updates

Alex and I have had the pleasure of art directing for the marvellous chaps at COY! Commuincations lately. Here are some sneaky 'behind the scenes' of the fun we've been having.

Planet Painting

Painted some planets for a French feller called Louis. I think he liked them; he put them in all his stores.

Sports Relief

Had all this paper going spare so thought I'd better put it to good use. This year I'll be raising money for Sports Relief by selling paper model box frames. Commission one today for £25.00 of absolutely ANYTHING. Here is one I made earlier.

Madame Tussaud, Wonderpass

Early February I created a small exhibit for Madame Tussaud for the renovated underpass project at Baker St 'Wonderpass.' I designed Marie Tussaud's atelier depicting some of the processes involved in 18th century wax modelling. Furniture and smalls were sourced and modified or made by hand. On display until 2017.
