Nearly 3 years ago I joined Vimeo after making this film. I first uploaded it to YouTube but the quality was pretty bad and the community non existent, so here it is my first film on Vimeo. So why the name 'The Film Artist' [TFA] well this was the first time I captured something in HD and needed something to edit it, I found Pinnacle and it came with Magic Bullet Looks, I was amazed at how easy it was to change the look of the film and make it look almost artistic, hence the name which I first coined for youtube and later Vimeo. Funnily enough the youtube version of this film was pirated by more than 30 users and was very popular unlike some of my popular Vimeo films :)
Shot over the Christmas break 2009 with my new GH1 in the wonderful country of Morocco and beautiful timeless city of Marrakech. Footage is mostly of the Old City otherwise known as the Medina and includes the amazing Djemma Al Fna square. Cheap airfares, sunshine, gorgeous food and remarkable history make Marrakech a must see destination just a few hours away from London.
