Nadine Shah, Runaway

I've also suddenly become aware I hadn't posted last years release of Nadine Shah's video which I art directed and was "string choreographer' for!

A wonderful video for an exceptionally talented artist.

Production Designing on Donkeys

Two weeks ago I received a phone call from talented director Matt Roberts, asking if I would design his latest short film Donkeys. The script's haphazard heroes and witty dialogue had me hooked and shortly after, Alex and I set to work. 

The production involved designing and building sets, sourcing, artworking and creating props on a budget and all in some tricky locations.

The film is now currently in post so until it's release here are a few snaps, scribbles and my fish tank. Which inspired the one of the interior sets. 






 

Stay tuned for the release of the brilliantly written Donkeys. Shot by the keen eye of Phil Wood DOP, featuring the talents of Ardal O'HanlonCraig Gazey and James McNicholas all led under the direction of Matt Roberts. 

Cancer Research, Race for Life

Last week I was invited by lovely advertising company to art direct a little something for a wonderful cause. I sourced props, dressed the sets and mixed liquids along with the help of my wonderful assistant Nadia Kaliada.

A fabulous intimate shoot with a talented cast and crew. Here are some sneaky peaks.... 





SPRING UPDATES

These last two months have been a whirl wind of exciting new projects, lots of hard work and  working amongst new crew and talented folks. Here's a long overdue update of my going's on over the last 8 weeks....

Louis Vuitton's Chocolate Box Windows


For a good few weeks I found myself working on Louis Vuitton's window along with the charming folks at Scenic Sets Ltd. The 'foil' pieces were then shipped off to be installed at all Louis' major flagship stores around the globe including 5th Avenue, Omotesando and Champs Elysees.
