May is set to be a busy month with back to back commercials until mid June. The first is a series of idents for C4 program sponsorship using motion control and shooting on the Alexa. I'm not allowed to say anymore other than it's for Undercover Boss and Secret Millionaire so look out for them at the end of May.
Next up will be a fashion commercial shooting in the beautiful north of Wales. For this we'll be christening the C300 which arrived on my doorstep last week. So far I've only had a day of testing but I'm very impressed with the images this camera can produce. Unfortunately it doesn't have a Weather control button so unless Spring miraculously comes to life we'll be in for a wet and cold shoot. Lucky the adverts are for an Autumn/Winter range then.
On top of the commercials we'll be scoring and mixing my latest short film Aeolian ready for festival submission in early June.Three years in the making expanding on the techniques used in our previous short This Is J03, this collaboration with Animator Cam Lowe is a piece of magical realism that show's the life cycle of a curious creature as he gradually outgrows the natural world around him. A trailer will be up in June but before then here's an image to whet your appetites.
