A WORLD UNSEEN

I recently experienced The Revenant and was absolutely blown away by it. I have always loved Alejandro González Iñárritu's films so I knew going in to it that it was going to be something special. I was surprised and excited though to find out after watching The Revenant that Elliot Rausch - one of my favorite emmerging filmmakers - had made a documentary about the film. As with all of his work Elliot has created a moving, thought provoking meditation full of beautiful imagery that honors The Revenant, its themes and extraordinary production story whilst also displaying his unimitatable, totally idiosyncratic directorial voice. What an incredible thing to have such a great piece of work created about such an amazing film - definitely worth seeing for anyone that enjoyed The Revenant.

GEORGIA MAE – KEEPER OF THE KEY

I recently got to make a music video for Georgia Mae who was definitely one of the raddest wizards I've ever had the good fortune to collaborate with. It was an awesome experience making this clip - Georgia is an incredibly talented musician and a great person too - if you're not following her already you should definitely get on that. Huge thanks to Phoebe Galloway for the edit too - we shot a lot of footage and Phoebe did an epic job making sense of it all. Hope you enjoy watching this one as much as I enjoyed making it! I have included some photos I've shot of Georgia in this post as well if you're interested - you can check them out after the jump. Continue reading

DIRECTING SHOWREEL

Here's a showreel I've cut together showcasing some of my work as a director over the past few years. There is a variety of content on there ranging from shorts, music videos, branded content, time lapse and documentaries. If you would like to see the full versions of anything all the content is available to watch on my Vimeo. Huge thanks to all the amazing people I've worked with behind and in front of the camera over the years. Hope you like it : )

LUCY

I recently worked as the cinematographer on a short film called Lucy. The film was shot in outback Queensland in the middle of summer so it was some pretty testing conditions but the shoot was a lot of fun and it was great to see a part of Australia I hadn't seen before. Hope you like the film!

FILM PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

I ran a film photography workshop a few weeks ago introducing a group of young people to film photography. It was a really cool experience being able to share all the things I love about shooting on film and seeing the guys get excited about it. I got the scans back yesterday and I'm pretty blown away by what they achieved having mostly never shot on film before. Here's an image I shot during the day.
