I’m really proud to have produced this for Channel 4 by working alongside a student of mine.
This is Colour, written, performed and directed by first time filmmaker Josh Wildman, is a full spectrum, one man walking monologue on the value of diversity. At a time when racism and intolerance are on the march, this cautionary tale from a young gay black performer is a reminder about what to take from the rainbow.
I’ve just produced this campaign film for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party with Director Josh Cole. We’ve been shooting it across Britain since february and at the heart of Jeremy’s own constituency in London. Many thanks to the artists Lily Allen and Keane for the use of the awesome track.
With a general election just days away we’ve spent the last few days on the road producing this campaign video for Rize UP UK, a campaign to get young people to vote,. Featuring music by Grime Artist Big Narstie and Tommy Jules, we’re hoping it will be an anthem of democratic participation to get the young to vote.
The first of two films I’ve produced for first time writers and directors from the Rye Studio School for Channel 4 is now online. Ellie Taylor is a filmmaker whose short film ‘Hear’ is premiering on Am I Normal. Commissioned as a result of a partnership between the Arts Council England and Channel 4, which works with and develops 16-24 year old filmmakers through a national initiative known as First Acts, ‘Hear’ explores what it’s like to live with a hearing impairment.
You can view it and an interview with the Director Ellie Taylor here:
A ground breaking advertising campaign I produced for the advertising agency Wieden and Kennedy will be seen on billboards, in store and on TV from January to April 2017. Working alongside director and photographer Josh Cole we have spent the past couple of months casting real people who were prepared to capture that moment when they were getting down to their favourite music whilst cooking. Here’s a couple of the shots.
It’s not often that you get to work so close to home. But over the last six months I’ve been collecting the oral histories of those who remembered Hastings Pier before it burnt down. The amazing new pier opens this month and here are just some of the digital stories I’ve made to be displayed inside the visitors centre.
I’m really excited to have produced this great blend of spoken word performance and awesome cinematography for relaunch of the BBC Asian Network. It will be seen across BBC network TV over the next few months.
