2018 Showreel

2018 was a great year for my videography work, with a great variety of shoots and videos. I’ve collected some of my favourite shots from the year here –

Live Video: Babyteeth @ Camden Roundhouse

Supporting Adam Ant, this was the biggest gig Babyteeth have played so far, and one of the biggest venues I’ve shot out so far. Great lighting, and a great performance from the band made this a really fun vid to shoot and edit.

Music Video: Babyteeth – Cocoon

A really fun shoot, and my second collaboration of the year with Babyteeth, this shoot gave me the chance to explore working with black and white, as well as starting to experiment with After Effects as well.

Uganda with The Abode Project

This November I had the great privilege of being part of the video team that followed the work The Abode Project are doing in Kabale, Uganda. Using donations from a variety of club nights and charity fundraising events, the team with Abode have done some brilliant work so far, building a school, orphanage, community centre and barbers fro the village, with plans to keep expanding in the new year. A variety of videos using my footage will be gradually released, in the mean time – here’s some of my pictures fromt he trip.

Taken on film and digital.

Music Video: Babyteeth – Shame

Here’s my latest video – for London based rockers Babyteeth. This was a pretty challenging shoot as we were filming a very cold warehouse during the snow a few months back – although at least we got to keep out clothes on unlike the star of the video, professional ballet dancer Nicol Edmonds.
