Promo for BT Sport’s Champions League Final

This new promo for the Final match of the UEFA Champions League on BT Sport has come out. The little 90sec film is peppered with presenters and football players. Would you recognise them all?

I had the pleasure of shooting in Belgium as B-unit with the brilliant talents of Michael Owen, Owen Hargreaves, Jake Humphrey and Reshmin Chowdhury. There also was something else to note about this shoot: the entire camera department except myself was female.

Big props for fantastic work go to:

Focus Puller: Eira Wyn Jones
Clapper Loader: Marçia Sousa
Grip: Caroline de Bethune

Shooting six different camera formats for NCS

On a commercial for the youth program National Citizen Service I was asked to shoot additional material as 2nd Unit DoP.

Director Matt Houghton from Pulse Films was keen to mix different media and so I was filming scenes on Super 16mm, miniDV, iPhone, GoPro as well as 35mm stills for it while the main unit DoP Adam Scarth was shooting on Alexa.

In the final film you see the mix of it all.

Short Film ‘The Winemaker’ finished

The Winemaker is a short film I was involved with during this year’s Terre di Cinema Cine Campus which I attended in beautiful Sicily in June.

The project was a collaboration with director Max Shlomovitz from Tel Aviv and cinematographer Elena Chiappa from Rome. The two found our excellent actor for the lead role during a pre-production coffee break at the local café. Ottavio Cappellani is an author and screenwriter in normal life but he did not mind stepping in front of the camera for us.

I operated the camera on this and also did the colour grading.

A Moving Image premiering at LA Film Festival

I am extremely proud to share that our feature film A Moving Image has been selected to have its World Premiere at LA Film Festival this June.

We filmed A Moving Image last summer with a wonderful cast (Tanya Fear, Hussina Raja and more) and crew. The film, directed by Shola Amoo, is about gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art. It is competing in the World Fiction section with five other films. Check out the trailer HERE!

Shoot of feature film Zoo-Head wrapped

Exhausted but super happy with the results! We have finished shooting Zoo-Head, my second feature film as a DoP. It is going into post-production now.

Two Fish wins Best Cinematography Award

After premiering at Berlin Short Film Festival in the summer Two Fish just won the Best Cinematography Award at the Blackbird Film Festival 2015 in New York. The short film directed by Divina Hasselmann will also play at Bronx International Film Festival in January and it was selected for the Made in NY Filmmakers Showcase in February.

Finished shooting A Moving Image

The principal photography for ‘A Moving Image’ concluded with some scenes we did in South East London after having shot all across Brixton beforehand. Big thanks to my amazing team who made this low budget feature possible. It’s an important subject worth making a film about. If you want to follow the project check out the website:

Experimental Music Documentary in Tuscany

A week long documentary shoot in summery Italian landscapes has been wrapped up. It was a fantastic experience to film during Tutto Questo Sentire – a residency for incredible musicians, visual artists and dancers from all around the world.

Afloat Adrift – short film shoot wrapped

After a week of filming we have wrapped on the main part of the shoot for Afloat Adrift – a short film directed by Jo Jo Lam. The team was great and worked real hard. The only thing missing now are the dream sequences which will be shot in an underwater studio.
