London Eye Timelapse

This is a piece which was created whilst on the EDF London Eye. Using my Canon EOS 600D and DSLR Controller Pro for Android, I set a delay of 5 seconds between each photo, and off we went.

The camera was attached to the rail around the side of the pod with a cheap GorillaPod clone, and the lens was touching the glass to minimise reflections from inside the pod.

I had planned to capture the whole rotation, but unfortunately the cable between the camera and the phone disconnected. I have now installed Magic Lantern onto my 600D, so when the weather turns nice again, expect more videos like this.

Colour correction was done in Adobe Photoshop, and the video was put together in Adobe Premiere, with each shot lasting 3 frames, at a rate of 24 frames a second.

Monster Raving Loony Party @ Occupy London

This is a video put together through a collaboration between myself and What’s Next Entertainment, which was intended to be used for the Monster Raving Loony Party’s London Mayoral election campaign. The footage wasn’t filmed by me, but after a lot of hunting through, I found the best bits and popped them together to form this. We didn’t actually publish this to their channel in the end, but it shows what can be done with some old camcorder footage and a few hours work in Adobe Premiere.

As an aside, does anyone else find that St Paul’s looks lonely without the tents there?

Loony Queen’s Speech 2012

In 2012, I was commissioned to make a video for What’s Next Entertainment. The piece was intended for use in their member “Crucial” Chris Dowling’s campaign for Mayor of London, representing the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
Under their direction, the brief was to take the Queen’s Christmas Speech and subvert it. A couple of weeks back and forth with edits, and incorporating ideas from both sides, this is what we came up with.
The challenge of taking pre-existing footage from TV clips and the Loony archive to create new work was fulfilling, and the experience of working with a director instead of directing myself was an eye-opener.
The main edits were done in Abobe Premiere, with added animations and notations created in After Effects and Photoshop.
