Sorry for my delay in posting! I have been super busy working on a fashion video for Alice & Olivia, but it will soon be finished and I cant wait to share.

Yesterday I directed a stop-motion video for ION magazine. I collaborated with Photographer Alan Chan and Stylist Deanna Palkowski, Stylist Assistant Kristine Wilkinson, Make up / Hair Negar Hooshmand and model Tia S from Liz Bell. The video will be up in September. Excited!
Here are some images from the shoot last weekend. The crew I worked with were AMAZING! I am so excited about this.
We shot it in OPEN studios, Vancouver BC. Huge thanks to Nobasura, Ben Lederman and Mike McSuede at Open Studios. Full list of everyone involved below…
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.
Guess what arrived for me this morning…an amazing present from my friend in London who is mad at DHL for taking two weeks to deliver! Im chuffed to bits. Looking through my bday mini super 8 viewer – this is what I saw…
See the video he uploaded below showing the super 8 viewer and content. At 00.18 secs you see the footage of awesomeness! Just brilliant!
Here is a short test I made featuring an animated rainbow made from boxes and colour explosions taking over the studio at Nobasura. It was shot over a few days. I have been meaning to post it up and finally have had some time to edit into a short colourful clip for the blog – hope you enjoy it! and THANKS NOBASURA ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Have a look at this new short for Mulberry involving photography and 3D Elements. Love the cut-outs and the fox! There are stuffed foxes too! The still and the moving…

Canadian Arcade Fire director Vincent Morisset collaborated with French singer and composer Émilie Simon in creating interactive videos for four of the tracks on her latest album, The Big Machine. Photographer John Londono and illustrator Caroline Robert were also involved in the project. The films were shot during a day in Brooklyn -love the styling and symplicity.. In the videos they use a Thaumatrope to create simple animations. Each of the short clips is interactive – to have a play go here.
Talking of miniatures have a look at the miniature set my friend and frequent collaborator Geoff Howell made below for a project he is currently working on. Apparently its going to feature angry super rich pandas and flying jets! I cant wait to see the finished film. Its going to be awesome…..
