For 6 months Director Max Greenstein and I followed expert luthier Alex Bishop as he created a beautiful Gypsy Jazz guitar. We filmed the whole process from initial concept and design right through to the performance of the guitar which was used as the music behind the film. It was such a pleasure to spend this time with Alex and see how meticulous he is about his work.
The film gained a prestigious Vimeo Staff Pick and is now also being featured on the prestigious video production forum ‘No Film School’
Every now and then, a project comes along that combines all your favourite elements. For me, skilled craftsmen and artists making exceptional works of art all about a motorbike!
The fact that it was for Honda was an added bonus!
Adventure is out there!!
Director David Hayes asked me to work with him to work on the latest music video for The Keston Cobblers Club. I instantly fell in love with the concept… a ‘whodunnit’ set in a wild west village!
We shot on my trusty Red Dragon with a set of vintage Leicas. For an even more vinatge feel, I drew on my set of vintage 16mm filters which helped create a lovely rustic feel.
