  2. A short film made for the HV20.com fortnightly competition October 2010.

    This film was made on a very tight schedule, around two hours of shooting and a day and a half of editing. Shot on location in Hampshire and Croydon, it was a lot of fun to make, but the short time-frame definitely made for a challenging edit!

    Filmed using a Canon 550d DSLR with kit 18-135mm lens, edited on premiere pro 2, music from iStock.

  3. This is a short created using test footage I shot a while back on my 550D, this was some of the first footage I shot with the camera and was the first time trying out my shoulder rig.

    Shot in Coombe Wood on the outskirts of London, the footage was really just having some fun and trying out a few things, but I have pulled together the shots to create a narrative of sorts. It could be the opening of a longer story.

    Edited and graded in Premiere Pro, the audio is completely replaced using foley and sound effects from iStock and other sources, music is by Kevin MacLeod of incompetech.com.

  4. An experimental short created from footage shot within a small area around my house.

    This began as just a first test with a newly built 35mm adaptor for a HV30 palmcorder, experimenting with the interplay of the sunlight and the lens, deliberately creating lens flare and glare.

    Although it was just a test the footage turned out great, and when I was reviewing the footage I started to try and cut it together.

    It was a lot of fun to actually try and make something of it, and a great excuse to try some unusual image editing and flipping.

    The 35mm adaptor gives a flipped image, so this was retained for some parts of the edit, and a few cg film flashes were added to help give the illusion of film footage rather than video.

    The music is 'Chord Sounds' by Moby and it is used with permission from http://www.mobygratis.com - a fantastic resource for filmmakers, check it out if you haven't already

  5. A few shots of Croydon, England, shot and graded in emulation of the style used in recent movies such as the Bourne Trilogy.

    This is test footage trying some grading and testing how the intended locations read on screen.

    Shot on a Canon HV30 Camcorder and graded in Premiere Pro 2.
