I directed and edited this trailer for the XBox One launch title 'Powerstar Golf'. It was a lot of fun filmmaking in a digital environment where the possibilities for camera moves were pretty much endless! Working with animated characters was quite tough, the animators on the project were pushed for time and it was a case of working to the limitations of what we had to tell the story. Had lots of fun working on this.
A very cool little write-up of Victorian Undead here:
Thanks to Em for checking it out! She'd like to see more zombie action, anyone else interested in a sequel?
Didnt get to watch as much as I'd like, but saw The Watch and Dredd.
I don't get why The Watch has such low ratings, seemed like a perfectly good entry into the excellent catalogue of Stiller work, and always enjoy Vince Vaughn. The guy from The IT Crowd didnt really fit.
Dredd was interesting. Nice and dark, got better as it went on, I'd definitely watch a sequel.
Since I don't put much on here I thought I might as well share what I've been watching recently.This past week: World War Z, Skins Fire, Paranormal Activity 4, Dark TideI liked them all.
Skins Fire was excellent, all British TV should be shot in this way.
One of my favourite all time movie geek sites, the legendary 'Ain't It Cool' was recently kind enough to feature Victorian Undead in their Saturday shorts section.
I am extremely proud to be on their site! Big thanks to Muldoon @ AintItCool!
LOW is being screened as part of the CIne-City Film Festival this week - details here
I thought it would be nice to share the opening sequence for my un-released 2nd feature LOW.
This clip shows the first 5mins of the film. It introduces you to Alice with a montage of her journey into the narrative.
We shot the bulk of the sequence on a very hot summers day, and this gave us some really nice natural lighting.
Oddly enough, the very first 30 second scene where we meet Edward was actually actor David Keye's final day on the film. Quite fittingly for his character at that point, the weather turned very bleak and grey!
