Other Finger Films

  1. Intended to inform and express, this is my visual and audible depiction of what what my experience with Guillain Barre Syndrome was like. It's taken 2 years before I was ready to make this film, but finally the time came. I'm back to full health, surprisingly unscathed, my vigour for work and life has doubled. Although a terrible experience, one that has changed me for the better.

    I went from an active, fit person, boxing 4 times a week, to paralysed within the space of 9 days. It took 5 weeks to be able to walk again. I had the added issue of Bells Palsy too, which has left the right side of my face with only about 30% movement.

    Please feel free to share and to ask questions. I want to use this piece as a platform for discussion.

    Director - Jonathan Nicol
    Cinematographer - Richard Osborne
    1st AC - Tash Tully
    Composer - Barnabus O'Flynn
    Grading & Sound Design - Jonathan Nicol

    Shot on the Red Raven in 4.5k crop with a mixture of lenses, dependent on the style of frame we were trying to create. Lighting came from Kino Flo, Arri and Aputure. Mostly on a Vinten vision 5 tripod, Cinesaddle for handheld and high-hat shots and the occasional DJI Ronin shot in there too.

    Sound effects mostly from Freesound.org - Felix Blume, Ceberation, Leonsptvx, Ayliffe, AlaskaRobotics, Thatkellytrna, Inspector J, Sonicquinn, DineoMichelle.

    Special thank you to James Hole, Kenny McCracken and Sam Shaw for their assistance too. As well as Cheetahs gym for letting us film the boxing scenes there.

    And obviously to my wife, children, parents and siblings for theirs.

  2. As part of a series of films I am creating, featuring strong women, I approached Emmy and Jake to tell Emmy's story, after seeing Emmy's unbelievable bravery through her diagnosis with a rare form of cancer - Emmy and I knew each other from University. Emmy's approach of Smile, Love & Be Kind is something that will live with me forever. They let me into their lives and I am forever grateful to them.

    More than anything, I hope this video gives strength to people who watch it.

  3. Third Space hired us once again to make a series of lifestyle films that highlight their new courses and give a source of attitude and inspiration. We worked with our friends at BuroCreative to update and replace the series of corresponding films we shot the previous year. With our new camera, the quality of footage was stepped up again this year filming on our new RED Raven, with the location of the Truman Brewery adding to the feel. These are beautiful films that give an intensity to them. Yet to be launched, they will be up soon.

  4. We shot and edited this video of Paul in one day. Our idea was simple to profile a talented man who works in such an amazing medium and to provide a brief insight into his story.

  5. We shot a new video for Baroque Jewellers over 4 years after we shot the first video for them. James Callahan of Future Deluxe joined forces with Other Finger Films to create this experimental piece.
