    What We See is an intimate documentary of Two Door Cinema Club on the summer 2012 European festival circuit. With a film crew of one the band are captured playing to enormous crowds in Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Holland, Germany and France before heading to Belfast for a homecoming show and then finishing off with the Leeds festival and the performance of their lives at Reading 2012. The time period of the film shows the band moving out of the "Tourist History" era as they begin to litter their set with more songs from their second album "Beacon". The press commitments regarding the new release, which at time of filming was 1 or 2 months away, start to kick in and the band are shown at a cross roads in their career. They discuss their epic touring life style which has consisted of roughly 300 dates a year and how that effects their lives on personal level. The film also gives a clear and honest snippet of what life on the road for the band is like. In most parts it adheres to the time line of events that the band went through with no pre-determined beginning, middle or ending. Simply just a document of the band at a certain place at a certain time. Directed / Edited / Filmed by Babysweet Ttiles by Euan Clive Allardyce Additional live footage taken from Brixton Academy filmed by Gregg Houston, Euan Allardyce, Charlie Sarsfield and Nick Light. www.babysweetsessions.com twitter : @mrbabysweet Quotes : Alex Trimble : "We wanted to capture how weird it is, the constant traveling, meeting so many people, all the interviews and shows we do every single day, and we also wanted to capture how normal our lives are too – we all sit down for dinner together, we go for walks the three of us, we get our washing done. Those things bring the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle back down to earth." Kevin Baird : "Touring has become much more normal. When we first started going on tour, everything was really, really exciting and new. We would've sacrificed anything to be there. Obviously, we love going on tour and playing shows and things, but I think we've become more aware of the things we've had to give up to get to this point, and trying to not give up any more." Alex Trimble : "When we started touring, touring was like this all-consuming force, It just sort of took every single part of my life and touring became my life. The past few years have sort have been not necessarily a struggle, but a learning curve. So it’s learning to be in touch with the people you leave behind and learning to just deal with the ridiculousness of it all.” The film was shot primarily on a Canon 7D with some live footage and under water shot on a GoPro hero 2. The lenses used were a Canon 1.4 50mm , Tokina f2.8 11 - 16mm and a Canon f2.8 70 - 200mm lens.

          I spent three - four days in the studio with Foy Vance between May 2012 and February 2013 as he recorded various bits for his new album, the magnificently titled "Joy of Nothing." From only being there a short amount of time I learnt a couple of things. One : That I am a bit of a curse. Of the six songs I was in the studio for only two made it onto the final track listing. My personal favourite, I Will Be, which was in a very rough form was never actually tried in the studio. It is the song that Foy plays on the piano with the tripod'd camera catching glimpses of his moustache every once in a while. That was filmed the night before we went to the studio and was one of maybe 5 songs Foy played me that night as I sat on the floor with my Zoom recorder and a beer. That night led me to learn the second thing. Two : Foy is one of the most prolific writers I have had the pleasure of filming. I guess with 6 years between recording Joy of Nothing and his first album you would expect Foy to have written a lot of material. From what I could tell however most of these songs came in a period where Foy was joined in the Highlands with Producer Michael Keeney. Away from that, Foy had introduced two or three songs as just written to me on the night mentioned in point One. There were countless little riffs and chord progressions dotted through out my time in the studio with him, each one asking to be developed and finished. Every song sounded to me as if it needed to go on this record. I was amazed at the wealth of songs that were not recorded in the studio, mainly a consequence of time and the strength of the songs that had already been confirmed to appear on the album. It all points to a wonderful third album to follow a wonderful second album. This film was shot on a Canon 7D and 5D using a Canon 50mm 1.4 and a Tokina 11-16mm 2.8.

              On the 3rd July 2010 Tom McShane and his assembled band congregated in the Oh Yeah! Centre in Belfast to record his debut album within two live sessions held in front of a small audience. This wasn't a live album per se as the audience where there to bring the special atmosphere that can only be generated by performing to a crowd. The tension was raised further by the banning of over-dubs and attempts for each song being restricted to one per session, of which there were two. The audience were also present in order to help create the album. On "A Personal Narrative of Life at Sea Part 2", featured here, the audience take up the role as choir and help create the one-off special moment that is captured. This film discovers the inspiration for the records concept, the influence the unique settings had on the albums sound and production and the effect the recordings success holds for songwriter Tom McShane. After abortive attempts at recording an album in 2008 resulted in a loss of passion for making music. 2009 saw a musical pilgrimage to the USA for a number of solo shows reinvigorate and inspire Toms desire to create. Followed by further shows in London and the assembly of a new band, 2010 saw this difficult album recorded in under four hours. The songs that feature here are: 1. The Water 2. Ural Winter 3. Personal Narrative of life at sea...part 2 4. My Nadir 5. Private Rooms All of these songs feature on the forthcoming album which is being released very soon.
