My Summer So Far...

Posted on at


So as the title suggests I will briefly discuss what I have been up to in these summer months with projects involving my final masters project, getting to grips with my Canon 6D and a promotional trailer for No Gloss Film Festival.

Final Masters Project

Currently I am working on my final project with my Masters in Fine Art - Own World which explores the barriers we have as a society to each other via an interactive video experience set to be exhibited in Wolverhampton Art Gallery early October.

For this I am recording a variety of video and raw time-lapses - a still of a Birmingham time-lapse can be seen below - as well as having a graphical mp3 interface on the video. This project is the largest I have ever done and is certainly keeping me busy - more about it in the coming weeks.

No Gloss Promotional Trailer

A few weeks ago I was commissioned by No Gloss Film Festival to produce a promotional trailer for their festival which occurs in October ( So myself and two of my students, Richard Edmunds and Ed Stone, went around Leeds, UK for a day documenting the area and focusing on the urban village around the festival's location. From this shoot I made a test video as it was my first job using my new Canon 6D - see below and the festival promo video all three of us that worked on it are very proud with it you can see in the link below.

I am loving the images produced by my Canon 6D especially the time-lapse still above and cannot wait to keep exploring the camera's abilities. In the coming weeks I am finishing my masters project (a blog about the project will happen next week) filming my first wedding with a few other freelancers and beginning my second year lecturing at Staffordshire University.

Thanks for reading :)
