When it rains, it pours. So is the mantra of the freelancer. January, as always in film, was a very quiet month, which was much of a relief after the chaos of latter 2014. What started as a relief though, quickly turned to worry as February loomed and the diary remained empty. Then came back to back jobs with Deckchair Productions and David Shearing. Deckchair had two shoots down in Bristol in the beginning of February, one with Ovo Energy and one with Friska, a sustainable fast food company. I produced the former and directed the latter (below), which in aid of World Climate Week's Meat Free Mondays.
As these things happen, I couldn't be there for the former shoot with Ovo as I was also producing a fantastic installation for the sound artist David Shearing in Leeds called The Weather Machine. Backed by the progressive Sky Arts Bursary programme, The Weather Machine was one of the most wonderfully surreal pieces I have ever seen, with artificially created weather (from mist to rain, sun to wind) flowing around a post-apocalyptic storyline. The film is to be released soon so hold your breath. It was visually quite incredible.
