1. Made for the 2014 Lens Flair 24 hour film festival in my home town of Alice Springs:
    • produce a (less than) 5 minute film in 24 hours
    • include several items from the List of Special Things

    This version of the film is different to the one submitted to the festival; Cy has added missing images, I've massaged them into place, Cy has added credits, and I've fiddled with the sound mix and mastering.

    Some things are the same however: the instagram images are from the exhibition 'Verisimilitude' : a gallery of haunted, melodic and abject images, curated by Navid Dixon.

    This film was shot on an iPhone 5s using Filmic Pro. Edited on an iPad 2 then an iPad Air using Pinnacle Studio.

    Cy Starkman and I have collaborated before: Verisimilitude

    Thank you to all the Instagrammers and Musicians who contributed to this film.

    Music in order of appearance:
    • Hen Ogledo by Lee Patterson
    • Raptor Lovers by Trokai
    • Quiver by James Beaudreau
    • The Sun Is Scheduled To Come Out Tomorrow by Chris Zabriskie
    • I Am A Man Who Will Fight For Your Honour by Chris Zabriskie

  2. While waiting for Cy Starkman to finish the script for the film we were making for the LensFlair 24hour film festival, I amused myself by shooting this film.

    After the event, I showed him what I had edited. His reaction was priceless - as if I'd held a mirror to his most intimate moment, up for him to see.

    I invited him to narrate it: to share his thoughts on the process of writing poetry. Instead, he used snippets of the voice over we later recorded for the film, to good effect.

    This film was shot on an iPhone 5 using FilmicPro, an X-shot monopod and Glif, and an iStabilizer table dolly. It was edited on an iPad in two stages: the pictures were edited in iMovie, then the audio edit and credits were edited in Pinnacle Studio.

    The music was created by Josh Woodward and sourced from the freemusicarchive.org

  4. My scavenger hunt for Australian icons lead me to the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art to visit a public art work that suffered a storm of controversy when it first appeared in the city's landscape. Now days, there are lots of boldly coloured big things about the place. And sculptures that add to rather than dominate a space. And venues for graffiti art. I like Melbourne.

    Shot on an iPhone 4s. Edited on an iPad 2 using iMovie.

    This video was produced on an iPad using iMovie. The images were taken by participants of the Anzac Ride. The music was sourced from Freemusicarchive.org and Apple Loops. The final sound mix was tweaked in Final Cut X.
