Joseph Mann

Is working away on something special at Clapham Road Studios at the moment. He sent me this earlier today - a flashback to his awesome work on the strata-cut section of the Skream music video earlier this year (note the BIG bags under Joseph's eyes, and this was only about 10 days into his month-long work marathon on the project). A true talent and trooper...

RIP Leslie Neilson

Can't quite believe you've gone.
Your films filled my early adolescence with such joy, and they've continued to entertain me, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Also, that sketch in Naked Gun where you get into giant condoms... that was my first sex education lesson. Cheers!

Miss you!

NFTS Interview

Last week I went to the NFTS to be interviewed for their student magazine show "The Loft".
Here's the result.

NB - The "Exhibition" was the Barebones exhibition on Rivington street. It was in no way a solo show. I was a small part of a much bigger thing there.

Camera Obscura Doorknob

(from )
In conjunction with Design Tide Tokyo, architect Hideyuki Nakayama – a protégé of Toyo Ito – has teamed up with UNION, a manufacturer of door handles and levers, to create a glass globe doorknob. As you approach the doorknob you catch a glimpse of what appears to be another world, waiting for you to enter and join, but in fact is a reflection of the room on the other side of the door.

Pop music would be regarded as a legitimate artform in its own right if it was all upto the standard of Robyn.
In a class of her own...

(sorry about the tinny quality)

Chills Of Excitement

I get REALLY excited when every so often I find things like this stored in cupboards around Blink (the production company I'm with).
Makes me feel like the most fortunate guy alive to be in this industry.

Attitude's Article on the Mental Health Crisis Amongst Britain's Gay Men

Hello everyone, please take 5 minutes to read this article by Tracy McVeigh that was put on the Guardian (UK broadsheet newspaper) website yesterday.

The gay lifestyle magazine "Attitude" is running its main feature this week on bridging a massive mental health issue within the gay community, and one that I have never seen discussed in the media with such sense and reality.

The gay community has higher rates of depression, anxiety and suicide than among straight men, and far higher rates of self-destructive behaviour, substance abuse and sex addiction, and high levels of issues around intimacy and forming relationships.

It's an extremely complex issue, and not really anything that can be pin pointed to one particular thing. However, it really highlights how essential the continuing progress as a society into accepting people of any sexual orientation is for the mental health of those we know.

I still find it unsettling to read sentences such as "The current word for bad in British schools is 'gay', and children internalise this stuff very easily, they think in terms of good and bad. So by the age of 10 kids have understood that bad people are gay – then they discover they are one of them. They enter a dreadful stage of secrecy which can last 20 minutes or 50 years."

I urge you to read this, no matter what your orientation, as it concerns our whole society as a whole.

Thank you.

When I was 20 I went to New York for a week.
When I was there I dropped by the FAILE studios and had a chat (it was part of a University trip).
Their work and work ethic was truely inspiring, and for their latest piece of work (creating church ruins in Lisbon) they've truely outdone themselves.

Peaches Mini-Documentary

Considering this was one the of the best live shows I've ever seen (especially considering it was mid-afternoon at a festival). I'm VERY excited about the immanent arrival of this mini-documentary about the event....


Andreas Hykade

So, I went to Lovebox on Sunday, and along with seeing...

(that would be Peaches' naked, transexual backing dancer - her show was actually one of the most life affirming and inspirational experiences I've had in ages)


Grace Jones @ Lovebox 2010 by PhilippeD.

(motherfuckin' GRACE JONES!)

This short film, entitled 'Love and Theft' was shown on the big screens just before Peaches.
It's amazing...

Daniel Scheinert's promo for "Underwear" by FM Belfast

So, I saw this promo about a month ago, and I fell in love, but then forgot about it, and couldn't find it anywhere (due to forgetting the name of the song, artist, and director) BUT now I've found it again, I'm posting it on my Blog so I don't loose it again.
For a geeky bonus - this was all shot on a Canon 7D. The grain and dust effects were added with After Effects - SWEEEEEEEET!

Anthony Francisco Schepperd

Anthony's new music promo for "The Music Scene" by Blockheads is a physcadelic trip-out of mind blowing hand-drawn animation. Taking his animation skills from his promo for "Wail To God" 10x further to create an insane world of multi-colour decay.
I will be drooling over this for many more weeks to come

Copy Cats

My good friend, and fellow Colonel Blimp director, Tim Brown made this amazing promo (in collaboration with Christopher Hewit) back in October 2009...

AMAZING huh!!!??

However, these jokers have decided they'd pass off the originality of this promo as their own...

understandably the YouTube community are up in arms! I'm glad to see plagiarism like this doesn't pass the online community by quietly.

The mind boggles why they even bothered!

Blinkink have started a groundbreaking collaboration with Tempa Records, and here's the first fruit of their labour.
Kristopher Strom (of Minilogue's "Hitchhicker's Choice" fame) has been placed with dubstep superstar Benga to create a visual accompaniment to "Baltimore Clap".
Behold their twisted love child!!!

As you may have guessed, I'm up next with Skream. We launch in a fortnight's time. Hold on!

Blast from the Past

This weekend I went home to Somerset for my Mum's birthday. We went through a whole load of stuff from my childhood, which made me reflect back on my work.
As a responce I've uploaded 2 films from my past up on Vimeo.
The first one was my exam project from University. Created in March 2007, over an intense 4 week period, this piece of work landed my first music video commission...

The second is my first commercial commission. This ident was created back in February 2008 with the supremely talented Hannah Jacobs for MTV...

Give Us Today Our Daily Bread

After watching Eric Wareheim's new promo for Health (if you haven't seen it yet, click HERE and brace yourself), the super talented Ceridwen Brown put up a link to this extraordinary bakery in Bangkok.

(text and images from )


Ratchaburi is located 80 kilometres west of Bangkok on the bank of the Mae Klong River. The provincial area abounds in natural attractions and historical sites.

A long way off the beaten track and down a long metal driveway, you'll find yourself inside a dark room where realistic-looking "human body parts" are stacked on shelves and hanging on meat hooks. The place looks like a mortuary, but in fact, it's a family-run bakery with a difference.

What appears to be putrefying body parts are the bread sculptures of 28-year-old art student Kittiwat Unarrom from Potharam, Thailand.

"Of course, people were shocked and thought that I was mad when they saw the works. But once they knew the idea behind it, they understood and became interested in the work itself, instead of thinking that I am crazy," said the fine arts masters degree student.

As an undergraduate art student, Kittiwat started painting portraits. He then moved to mixed media and finally dough - a natural medium for him since his family runs a bakery.

Along with edible human heads crafted from dough, chocolate, raisins and cashews, Kittiwat makes human torsos, arms and feet.

He uses anatomy books and his vivid memories of visiting a forensics museum to create the human parts.

He now is receiving regular orders from the curious and from pranksters who want to surprise their friends or colleagues. However, I'm not too sure how your beloved would feel opening the fridge to find one of these inside.

By the end of the year, Kittiwat's confectionary slaughterhouse will go on display at Bangkok's Silpakorn University. It's his final dissertation, and he hopes it will secure him a Master of Arts degree.

"When people see the bread, they don't want to eat it. But when they taste it, it's just normal bread," he said. "The lesson is 'don't judge just by outer appearances.
