Everything Stops For Tea...

...My latest commercial has just gone on air. We had loads of fun making this one... Giant inflatable teapot, tea spoon acrobats, aerial flying team and more silly tea themed costumes than you can shake a spoon at... Written by Nathalie Turton and Lorelei Mathias with Trevor Beattie at BMB...

Frozen Filming...

So, I'm up in the French Alps in Val Thorens doing a bit of filming with my buddy Lon Canu. Some great shots going down. Here's one shot as a little taster. I love everything about this shot - The camera is set up at the end of a flat rail which has perspex sides. This gives us nice back-light through the perspex with some nice lens flare and when the board is on the rail you also get a reflection in the perspex. And the slowed sound is fun too.

48 Hour Film Challenge WINNER!!!

Yup... that's right... I won the Smoke & Mirrors 48 Hour Film Challenge! This is great news on so many levels, non more so than the main prize, which is a first-look development deal for a feature film.

Despite the hang-over, I'm incredibly excited and just want to say thanks again to everyone who helped out on the film.

You can check out what my production company had to say about it and watch the film here...

So, a few weeks back, I entered the Smoke & Mirrors 48 Hour Film Challenge - a theme is announced at 7pm on Friday and you have until 7pm on Sunday to write, film and edit a 5 minute film... which is not easy.

With the help of a stunning cast and wonderful crew, my film has been short listed for the final. Very fun news for a Friday.
