3 Aug

after a 3 day shoot at the vintage festival, principal photography is over for ‘music machines’.
now off for a break at field day festival, in victoria park, this saturday. no cameras between me and music for a day.
then a month of hard work editing the film & finishing the dissertation.
halfway through september i’ll be a post-graduate looking for a job.

amazing weekend at Port Eliot Festival.
watched Hitchcock’s ‘North by Northwest’ under the stars.

filmed debates, talks, readings and live performances by Kate Winslet, Tom Uglow, Edmund de Waal, Luke Wright, Caitlin Moran and Ed Harcourt.
raved to Sir Weatherall’s magnificent taste. Twice. And found a group of kids making incredible music somewhere in the forest: Turing.

i want my life to be a permanent festival. please?

another shoot for machineSLASHmachine (or music machines, still undecided about the title of the documentary) happened in Brighton’s Soundwaves Festival this Sunday.
This time to film Robin Rimbaud, known as Scanner, performing live.

my festival season is about to start.
this year, on what is a return to an unforgettable past, working.
for free but that is only a small and uninteresting detail.
who cares about money anyway, when there’s live music?

will be attending Soundwaves Festival, this coming sunday, in Brighton, to film Robin Rimbaud AKA Scanner for my current project, the documentary ‘music machines’.

then, moving outdoors, in the forest and by the river, to film at Port Eliot Festival, in the amazing land of St Germans.

the chef

14 Jun

after hours and hours in front of FCP, we finally made it.
‘the chef’ is ready, approved and will probably be on air this thursday at port eliot festival website.

loved working on this.
pitching, preparing treatment, organizing crew, buying props, scheduling shoot, preparing shot list, filming, the editing process, recording foley, sound designing (now a bit more experienced on pro-tools) and doing colour correction.

developed during a placement with stranger collective, ‘the chef’ is a commercial for port eliot festival, happening 21-24 july in st germans, cornwall.

we used a great track titled ‘hollow men’, by gravenhurst, who will be appearing at the festival.

will post the video after its premiere on the official site.

for now, here it is its last frame
