Edge of the Earth is a music video i directed, shot and edited for Canterbury based psychedelic rock band, Syd Arthur. The track is from their latest album On Anon and features a 2m x 4m HEXMOD LED matrix kindly lent to us by Rodric from bubblevision.co.uk.
Filmed using both a Cannon 7D and 5DMkII, at 25 and 50fps. We threw a few glide tracks in there too, for good measure.
I was commissioned to re-design and project manage the build of the 2012 Sunrise Celebration website. One of the UK's largest alternative festivals, it attracts over 7,000 visitors each year and is seen to be one of the authorities in promoting alternative and ethical living. Keeping with that theme, the entire site is built solely using Open Source technologies and is hosted by servers that run off yoghurt and optimism.
WoodCase are solid wood CD cases - a solution for high end packaging for the music industry and anyone else who wants to deliver their hard work in something more than a plastic anti-climax.
It is the personal project of myself and a good friend, Ben Tindale. We've been designing, machining and experimenting with the wooden cases since early 2011 and since launching the website, have seen some pretty staggering interest in them. Ranging from record labels through to wedding photographers, since launching we've had request from all four corners of the globe.
Mercury nominated English folk singer Sam Lee approached me to re-design and build his website in time for his 2012 album launch.

Artwork by the eccentric, bearded and rather talented Dom Cooper.
London based folk club, The Nest Collective asked me to do a complete re-design for their website. For help with the aesthetic of this project, i worked closely with the artist and illustrator, Alex Merry.
A very small selection of 35mm portraits taken during a family reunion in Sessarego, Italy in June 2011. Some 150 family members attended in total. Everyone in the photos below are related to one another through our ancestors who originated from the village of Sessarego, some 800 years ago. Having lived in all four corners of the globe for several generations, today we are bonded together by our ancestral history, by olive oil, lemon trees and erratic driving; the true Italian way.
This wooden dodecahedron was a concept for interesting outdoor lighting. Designed in CAD and machined by CNC, the lights inside come from a series of HEXMOD LED lighting modules.
Songs, is a collection of English folk songs sung and recorded by Ed, Will & Ginger. They say, "16 tracks, traditional classics and modern bangers alike".
I used the beautiful and painfully elaborate original indian ink illustrations by the artist Shelley Mould, throughout the packaging.
