HARK : Andrew Macgregor & Audrey Roger

DON’T MISS the private view of HARK at the Old Shoreditch Station in London on the 26th Jan!!!

My amazing friend Audrey Roger is colloborating with Andrew Macgregor and it looks like its going to brilliant. The duo are apparently creating paper landscapes of totem poles and shamanic stalactites woven together by an array of mirrors and lighting design. The focus of the project is a stop-motion animation film which I cant wait to see. Im sad to miss the private view but looking forward to seeing images.

 

iamamiwhoami

I cant stop listening to iamamiwhoami!! Wow -amazing music -so beautiful!

iamamiwhoami is an electronic music and multimedia project headlined by Swedish singer-songwriter Jonna Lee. Her videos are full of stunning photography and art direction but be warned some of them definitely have the shock factor on first viewing. It will certainly make you look at loo roll in quite a different way! She won “Innovator of the Year” at the Swedish Grammis held on January 2011.

Poster for her Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden on 12 August 2011.

Have a look below at a variety of stills I sourced from a selection of videos. Ive also included three videos for you to see to give you a taster; clump, ; john and t.

 

Latest work – Fashion Film Prep

Over the last month I have been prepping for a fashion film I am directing in January.

These are a few stills from the storyboard. They are for storyboard reference only. Pictures are of found-photographs with cut-out and collage. The film involves lots of paper cut outs and geometry. It is a short fashion film involving stop-motion, cut-out animation and live-action. I cant say too much now except I am going to be working with cinematographer Todd Duym and a team from Nobasura will be on set with Rad Kid Kristy Jacobsen modeling. Guest stylist Deanna Palkowski is working closely with me  too. I cant wait.  You will be able to see it first on Let Them Eat Cake, London. I will keep you informed when its up. Currently finishing off the making of props – I cant wait to see the giant protractor in action..

Early sketchbook stills you may be interested to see.

Las Vegas

Back from Vegas in one piece. Did lots of super 8 filming which I cant wait to process. Managed to catch the end of the National Finals Rodeo so there were REAL cowboys walking around town. Palm trees AND cowboys AND neon! It was all too much….
