Revolving doors

May 24th, 2013 at 8:01 am   Posted by admin in production

These are the most interesting of times in so many ways. Photography is dead. I was a press photographer for many years and when you are with a big agency, as I was, it photography seems alive and well. Step outside the goldfish bowl and you find the pickings for freelance news photographers are slim. […]

A week ago I did a couple of days free work as gaffer for Unexpected Films on a project called ‘Chair for Rent’, a short about a sinister barber. I was glad I did it because, apart from meeting a lot of very nice people, it gave me the opportunity to use the 2.5k HMI […]

Our friendly Irish WWII German military re-enactors who will be doing the flashback scenes in Backtrack. A few of these guys were in Saving Private Ryan which was filmed on the Emerald Isle.

Did you know that the South Downs National Park Authority are campaigning to keep the stars above the South Downs dark? You can read all about it in the Brighton Argus here. Fascinating. A much maligned and unappreciated phenomenon the bite of clear skies cut with the diamonds. When you photograph stars you realise they […]

Paloma Faith

Sheesh. I wish we had Paloma Faith for Gloria, our 40s siren. Sheesh. I wish. As an actress, Paloma has made some canny choices. Loved her as Sally, the Devil’s girlfriend in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) with the wonderful Tom Waits! This is probably Gilliam’s most lucrative film since The Life ...
