Hide and Seek – Christmas 2016

It’s December which means Christmas is almost upon us and with it comes Superfreak Media’s Christmas horror film. The film this year is entitled Hide and Seek and features Matt Barker in the lead role (with a small cameo from myself). As with many of Superfreak Media’s films I took on the role of DOP…

MAYHEM 2016

MAYHEM 2016 is sadly over but at least that gives me chance to talk about the films that were shown. As usual it was a great selection and this year, one that seemed to focus less on out and out horrors, although there were still a couple of gems in there. Here’s a rundown of…

Sandman 2016

Since I started working on horror films at university, I’ve had the goal of getting a film screened at the Mayhem Film Festival in Nottingham. The Superfreak Media team and I tried last year with Mr Creak and we were accepted but because of the film being featured on The Fear TV Show we unfortunately had…

What’s New?

It’s been a while since I last posted on here so it’s about time that I add a little update. The Mr Creak feature is still in the works. The script is really starting to develop now and has benefited from tweaks and changes. We are currently working on the ending as we thought the…

Mr Creak Feature Film

If all goes to plan 2016 should be a very exciting year. Liam Banks and I are in the process of writing our first feature film, Mr Creak. It is based on the short horror of the same name that we released last year and which competed in the BBC TV series The Fear. Unfortunately we…

Season’s Greetings

Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of being the director of photography on SuperFreak Media’s Final short of 2015, Season’s Greetings. It was directed by Liam Banks, Kieran Simpson was my camera/lighting assistant and it starred Charlie Clarke and John Kinroy. As you can probably tell by the title it has a Christmas theme, ‘tis…

Kaleidoscope – Red Bull Media House

Every now and then a video comes along that has a huge impact on me. The Red Bull Media house are probably the most consistently excellent producers of extreme sport content online right now. Videos such as Freerunning Illusions with Jason Paul and Danny MacAskill’s classic Way Back Home feature creativity and cinematic flair not found in other channel’s…

Film Reel Clock

A few weeks ago I moved into a new house and needed objects to decorate the editing room. I bought some old film reels off ebay (5 for £12). The reels I bought were for 800ft of 16mm film, that’s approximately 26cm in diameter so a great size to hang on the wall. They are…

Adobe Creative Cloud – Renewal Time

The dreaded email from Adobe CC pinged into my inbox last week. It was renewal time, suffice to say that it wasn’t something I was looking forward to. I’d had a pretty good thing going up until then. The renewal that they quoted me was nearly double my old (admittedly introductory) rate. I wasn’t too…

Insidious in 60 Seconds

Back in August, I teamed up with SuperfreakMedia to shoot a 60 second version of the James Wan horror film Insidious for the Celluloid Screams Film Festival Bumper competition.  We had some great news last week, we’ve been selected as one of the top 13 to be shown at the festival. Out of a list…
