I don't know why I didn't just do black text on a white background before today

I apologise to anyone who fell upon this blog before today and was forced to read the greyish text on a yellow background. I don't know what I was thinking. Feel free to contact me, as an apology I may send you a picture of a small puppy.

FUZZY HEAD

For a while now I've been working on something very exciting called Fuzzy Head. It's essentially about a guy with a fuzzy box for a head. It's a film that can also be played as a game. It's lots and lots of cool stuff.

Detailed explanations will come later, but for now check out fuzzyheadmedia.tumblr.com . There's already lots of stuff on there.

Woo!

Saskilla - Yonder

Sorry, I should be updating this more.

Several months ago I directed a video for a guy called Saskilla for a song called "Yonder", produced by George. It was a fun excuse to experiment with video projections, contrazooms and other stuff in a cool dungeon-like car park, and it was also nice to shoot something on RED. It looks like this:




Although I'm pleased with how it turned out, and the shoot was great, I have mixed feelings about this cut. There were a lot of different opinions being thrown around by a lot of different people (we even shot a whole day of extra material that was barely used). Personally I think one or two of the best things we made for this video aren't in this video. I do have a director's cut knocking around but haven't had time/found someone with the time to grade it. Alternatively I could use the unused shots for another video and pretend they're all new (this is how creativity works).

Yes

Mary and Dan at London Independent Film Festival

Hello, blog!

A short film I made, "Mary and Dan", is being shown this Friday at 6pm at the London Independent Film Festival. This is the most prestigious UK film festival it's been in, so I'm very excited! It's a five minute film that currently can't be seen online, it involves a combination of live action and stop motion animation and features robots and several cardboard spaceships. I may be around to do a Q & A afterwards (depending on various things, but I'd really like to though, I don't think I've ever done a proper Q & A before).

Tickets are free until they run out or can be booked for £2, and it's at the Shortwave Cinema. Click HERE for more details.

Hooray!

Will.
