I'm pleased to annouce that Simply Rob has won a special award at the I've Seen Films International Film Festival in Milan.

This festival run by actor Rutger Hauer is now in it's 5th year and has gone from strength to strength becoming one of the leading festivals for independant film in Italy.

The award was for Best Social Awareness Film and was the only award presented by Rutger himself in front of an audience of over 250 people. The jury included Joan Chen, Robert Rodriguez and Jason Eisener. 


And what an amazing Summer it has been (excluding the distinct lack of sunshine). I have to say London has never been on better form and the Olympics were fantastic. I'm very much looking forward to the Paraolympics and hope the Olympic hangover after it's all over isn't going to linger on too long.

Anyway Olympics aside it's been another busy month with three commercial jobs on, the first of which shot this week, with the next two shooting in September.  


Many apologises to anyone who may have recieved a huge quantity of emails from me on Sunday the 5th of August. This was due to an auto response error in my Mail programme and has now been corrected. 

As you will have gathered from the email I'll be away from the 6th to the 19th of August. 




I am excited to annouce that Aeolian has been offically selected for Encounters International Film Festival 2012. This will be the films world premiere and it'll be playing in competition for the best animation award. This will be my third film to screen at Encounters and it's been wonderful seeing it grow into one of Europes leading short film festivals. Screening dates will be annouced shortly but in the meantime I'd like to thank everyone who helped support us during our three year production. I look forward to seeing you in Bristol.




It's been another busy month with one job leading straight to another. This time a fashion shoot in Paris for clothing range Simply Be. Again shooting with the C300 I was asked to document the production and to make a series of intimate online films that portray the life of a model. The films should be going live in August.


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.
