The Top Ten Reasons I’m Amazing!

During the last two weekends, I assisted with the making of a short film called ‘The Top Ten Reasons I’m Amazing’. There couldn’t be a better title and I have no doubt that the film will be AMAZING when it comes out! The film is about two children, best friends, who take us back to…

The Art of Creating Believable Worlds with the Walt Disney Animation Studios

Taking place at the Curzon Soho, I was fortunate enough to meet and listen to a talk by Michael Giaimo and Mohit Kallianpur, the Art Director and Director of Cinematography and Lighting for Disney’s award winning Frozen. It was so absorbing and inspirational that I barely know what to say, I certainly was lost for words when I met them! Both directors spoke in…

Last Week’s Promotional Video Shoots

I was lucky enough to be able to work on two promotional video shoots this week, one for the construction company Inland Homes and the other for a fashion line. It was a very interesting week as they were quite contrasting shoots. The Inland shoot, produced by Webvideos, included a day of filming on location at…

‘Pom Pom’ Music Video Shoot by Kelsey Ellison

I worked as a runner for the music video shoot of the extremely funky K-pop song ‘Pom Pom’ by Kelsey Ellison. It was another exciting day on set with lots of different costume changes, dancers and a couple of very messy scenes involving cake-making and pouring brightly coloured gunge and glitter over the dancers. The…

‘I’ve Got Something You Need’ Music Video Shoot

It was such a manic but exciting day at Camberwell Film Studios yesterday working as a runner for the talented artist Loredana Margineanu’s new music video. With around 30 people working on the shoot altogether, there was a lot to do and I was kept very busy! The main shot involved the camera panning on…

‘The Feeling’ Music Video Shoot

At Camberwell Film Studios, I assisted with the shooting of another music video by Stephen Wicks, directed by Epik Music Videos. This shoot was compromised of two separate elements; one setting was in a Japanese dojo with the Wicks and two geisha girls, and the rest was shot against a green screen with three versions…

Zealous X

Amazingly, I was chosen, from a panel of industry expert judges, as one of 20 filmmakers to screen their work at the Zealous X event at the Bargehouse, Southbank London. 100 artists were chosen overall, across the mediums of art, photography, film, performance and music, and we were given the opportunity to showcase our work…

‘King’ Music Video Shoot

This was certainly an exciting experience for me – my first music video shoot! I was a runner for the day, at the Visual Effects Company in London, filming for the rapper KC da Rookee from Moroni 7 Records. The day was an eye-opener for me, as it was the first time being on a…

Work experience at Funktion Design

It must be such a small world as since I have been looking for work, I seem to find that everyone knows someone who is either in animation or film, or has their own art exhibition. That still has not made it easier for me to find work unfortunately! Anyway, I was fortunate enough to…

After graduating with a 2:1 in Computer Animation Arts BA (HONS) from Bournemouth University, my Final Project was screened at the Nation Centre for Computer Animation Degree Show, held at the Moving Picture Company, London. I was quite pleased to see that a still frame from my animation ‘Nitty Gritty Love’ was chosen to be…
