Something a bit different to my usual work, I created this promo video for Cabaret group Louise & The Rougies, featuring singer Louise Bernadette’s version of some classic tracks, with choreography from the fantastic dancers of Cabaret Rouge
The third of my videos with London band Babyteeth, this one might be my favourite. The band came to me with a really strong idea, and it was fun to make it happen.
This was a great concept brought to me by Hampshire based The Pretty Visitors which I had a lot of fun creating with them. We shot it over one day in the quiet village of Wickham near Portsmouth – we definitely got a few strange looks while shooting!
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 –Showreel 2018 from James Polley on Vimeo.
Supporting Adam Ant, this was the biggest gig Babyteeth have played so far, and one of the biggest venues I’ve had the chance to shoot at. Great lighting, and a great performance from the band made this a really fun vid to shoot and edit.
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.
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 for 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 from the trip.
