Life in a Day

This Global cinematic release is a documentary shot by film-makers all over the world that serves as a time capsule to show future generations what it was like to be alive on the twenty-fourth of July, 2010. This was the first of the four "IN A DAY" series I worked on as Technical Assistant Editor for Ridley Scott's Scott Free company. We invented the process as we went along, of translating, viewing, assessing and logging over 4,500 hours of footage, in over 60 languages, from 198 countries, and making it all work. Full movie available online.

Awaydays promotional Trailer

The promo was to get more sponsorship for the film. I eventually recut it with a different track, and this version was discarded. The film itself was about Wirral life during the grim early years of Margaret Thatcher's premiership. The youth got their kicks as they always have: sex, drugs, rock n' roll, fashion, football and fighting.

 

 

 

 

The Chemist

It was an exciting project to work as Colourist for this film. Grading is a mixture of artistic flair and technical ability. The film, written and directed by Serguis Dell, is about a young couple, Mike and Katherine, who are struggling to make ends meet in 1990's Moscow after the wall came down! They are both Graduates in Science and when their situation gets to a stage where they owe everyone and in particular the local loan shark Vera Petrovna..they turn to magical means to make some money! As the story progresses it seems they are getting themselves into a worse situation. Vera Petrovna possesses magical powers and decides to teach Mike a lesson in how life should be lived!

A World Below

When I was approached by a pair of divers with the idea of creating a diving video filmed off the Maltese coast, I had the idea of radically departing from the dull narrative approach many other products used and to go instead with the visual experience itself telling the story. I cut it to music, which helps with the pacing of the edit and the moods created. Many of the wrecks are between 40 and 50m deep, so not many casual divers can explore these regions.

Harry-O

There were a number of challenging aspects to shooting this short, including moving vehicle shots, split screens, black outs and slo mo shots, a very enjoyable film to work on. Written and directed by Colin Weir, it's a strange story about Harry O, who arrives home one day to find he is already there!
