LONDON was shot in the U.K. while a small trip during the holidays. I wanted this short to be representative of London's diversity, culture and life. "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."-Samuel Johnson

This video is a time lapse of London shot in RAW footage to bring out the beautiful colours you find around London at day and at night. The film was produced by myself and I was lucky to have such a great team of people to work with.
Joe Gallon provided all the shots and visual editing, he shot it on a Canon 5D Mark 2, as well as a Canon 550D and used a range of filters and lenses.
Matt Fletcher composed the beautiful piano piece that flows with the pace of the footage and gives it momentum.
Isla Day read the lovely poem Emma Bennallick and I wrote just for this project. Isla's innocent voice gives extreme contrast to how the poem usually reads and to how London is usually perceived, which creates a whole new way of looking at London.
I did all the sound design and the final mix of this project. I wanted sound to be just loud enough to give the footage life, but not too loud that it took the emotion away from the music.
