This is a commercial that was originally produced in 2009 and shot on 16mm. In 2014 Heart FM wanted to jazz it up, introduce their new logo and re shoot all the Emma Bunton scenes, which is where I come in. I got my grubby paws on an Arri Alexa and with a bit of lighting magic, voila. Directed by Richard Mullane for WCRS Agency.

An Unexpected Morning in a Buddhist monastery in Burma

Of all the mornings in my intense three week trip, this had to be the worst one I had woken up to.
A hard night’s sleep compounded by some dodgy food from the night before meant I was not in the best frame of mind for any filming.

Oil & Water

We had filmed some lovely stuff with Bob, a truck driver hauling water in the oil fields of North Dakota for a feature doco called “Columbus, Oil Rigs and American Dreams” but unfortunately when it came to the edit, he made the cutting room floor and it was such a shame to see his contribution, his time and effort to us go to waste.
