1. As part of the underwater videography course in Koh Tao, Thailand, I made a short documentary about one of the island's best restaurants and it's lovely owner Jam. I shot and edited everything in two days whilst on the island and so it's a little rough (particularly in the sound levels!)

    I'd like thank Jam for being so welcoming and kindly showing me around everywhere and letting me document her life for a couple of days.

  2. Following on from my recent plum jam film vimeo.com/28556006 I decided to have a go at filming my local mushroom forager and chef, Nik Westacott.

    He took me to our local Sussex woods and we spent the best part of a day filming.

    To be honest, I don't even like mushrooms that much but the dish Nik cooked up in the woods with these wild mushrooms was just amazing.

    I want to thank Nik again for all his help. Do visit his website 82fishbourne.co.uk He's a lovely chap.

    Please, please be careful if you do go foraging for wild mushrooms - there really are a lot of poisonous ones out there and they sometimes look very similar to the edible ones so do take an expert.

    The music was royalty free from neosounds.com and was called 'Lost'

    This was filmed with the Canon 5D Mark II and various lenses. And it was coloured in FCPX with mlooks from motionvfx.com/

    Hope you like the film.

  4. After ferrying over to the beach community of Fire Island last summer, we attended the inaugural Fire Island Opera Festival. With the image of the grandeur of traditional opera burned into our minds, we were pleasantly surprised by how intimate, relatable and playful the experience was—from culinary themed performances to gender-bending ones. We recently spoke with Fire Island Opera's Edwin Cahill (Artistic Director) and Bradley Moore (Music Director) to reflect on last summer's performances, and to find out what's next.
