Plan B "The Recluse"

I worked on this video last month. It was a crazy shoot involving helicopters, mansions, and alligators!

Im currently doing Plan B's new feature film iLL Manors at the moment too, which is a scream. More on that when I can make the time to post :)

Simons Cat in "The Box"

I've been crap at posting lately

No excuses, but I've just been so, damn busy!

Which is good on the one hand. I've genuinely had only 2 days off since 5th May. Some days are easier than others, but since 5th May I have only not worked twice, and you can believe I was thinking about work the whole time! lol

And it doesnt look set to end anytime soon either. After this currrent job, I think I go straight onto another job that will take me into December.

I cant complain. For a self-emplyed person, it is something I have to do, but damn! I just wish I had more a life sometimes! lol

If my scheming goes ahead though, I intend not to work in Dec/Jan very much. Lets see if I earn enough cash my the end of the next job to make that a reality!

Newport State of Mind

This fantastic video has been doing the rounds around Youtube. Spoofing Jay Z and alicia Keys music video Empire State of Mind.

Shear brilliance!

NSPCC advert

I went from Bulla straight onto an advert for the NSPCC.

It was again a very fun shoot, although dealing with the clients expectations along with the director, producer, and production designer added a new level of complicatedness to the whole thing.

The advert was filmed in First Person Style, and had the poor actress having to wear a crash helmet with a camera on her head for the whole shoot.

All good fun though, and got to work with Nicola and Terry who I hadn't worked with in ages. Both of them were friends I made doing The Rapture when I first came down to London.

Bulla went well

I've been a bit crap at posting lately. I just seem to be very busy all the time, which I suppose is good really! lol

Bulla went very well. Such a fun shoot with alsorts of interesting people and things going on.

The teaser poster is already out and its a beauty (although if you knew how bloody long we had to hunt for the location that the picture was taken in!! )

Can't wait to see what it looks like when its done!

The Half Million Pound Bathtub

Oh god, how beautiful is that? Seems a little flash, but I'd love to have a soak (on my own or with company) in that bad boy! lol. Best get saving now :s

Britain may have escaped sinking into a bathtub-shaped recession but most consumers would still think twice before splashing out half a million pounds for a good wash.
That's how much upmarket department store Harrods is asking for a rock crystal tub by Florentine luxury furnishings group Baldi.

The item, on display at the Knightsbridge store during July and carrying a £530,000 price tag, is carved from a single block of the purest white rock crystal.

It is 2m long, 55cm high and weighs about 2.5 tons when filled.

The tub was cut from a 10-ton block discovered in the Amazon region of Brazil.

Paolo Baldi, father of current chief executive Luca, purchased the rock and had it extracted and transported intact to Italy.

The block was cut into two; the first half was cut into a tub and sold to a Russian magnate for £567,502 in 2008.

Each tub, fashioned by Luca Bojola, is unique in its design.

Both were sculpted with diamond cuts and left partly in the rough to show off all the natural beauty of the original block.

Luca Baldi told Sky News the tub's creators had been entranced by the rock's "precious transparency" and "overpowered by the untamed energy" of the part left in its natural state.

"What was our rationale? To create the wildest, craziest, most beautiful and luxurious object ever imagined for a bathroom," he said.

A caricature can refer to a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing to create an easily identifiable visual likeness. Wiki
