I made nine ads for Surrey Police’s Child Sexual Exploitation campaign to raise awareness of online grooming among young people as well as to educate their parents and teachers about how to help protect children online. Here are two of the films that ran out across multiple social media channels, TV, local cinema and radio – the whole campaign can be viewed on Youtube.
Policing Matters’ campaign
This series of 20″ ads for Surrey Police’s ‘Policing Matters’ campaign was designed to reduce the number of emergency calls to 999. Bringing some levity to issues where the public was asked to really question what they had just seen certainly got some interesting comments on social media.
Roll-out included targeted TV, radio and online channels as well as OOH and social media to maximise audience reach in Surrey.
This tourism promo film for Adur and Worthing Council in Sussex was filmed over six months and incorporated multiple events, sites and dramatisations. At it’s heart is a story following three protagonists who represent potential visitors to the borough and it’s attractions. We cast local actors, both professional and non, to play these characters, shot many of Shoreham and Worthing’s best-looking landmarks and most popular cafes and restaurants, as well as some of the biggest events throughout the summer and autumn.
A promo for the arts collective We Are Art who work with local artists and youth groups to bring transformation to local communities and built environments. A simple premise that takes a familiarly negative perspective of Youth Culture and gives it a positive twist.
Squidsoup asked me to film this unique live collaboration at London’s ICA. Kieran Hebden of Four Tet performed his new album Morning/Evening with this in-the-round, immersive experience: Squidsoup’s Ocean of Light project. We had a three camera set-up for the shoot and made various edits of the set.
I was heavily involved in the production of this film for Siemens to accompany a large-scale US federal government bid process to do with rail infrastructure. Produced through Future Sun Films, we shot on both coasts of the US with local crews and actors and liaised with a CGI house in the Czech Republic in post.
Because of confidentiality and the technical nature of this project we have removed all of the sensitive details regarding the bid from this edit.
It was a project that required the balance of creative story-telling with highly technical elements related to design details. As director/editor I was overseeing CGI animators in Slovakia, cast and crews in NYC and LA and post-production back in the UK. Despite all this and our client working across three time zones spanning nine hours, we fulfilled their expectations, amendments and requirement changes and the film was eventually well-received.
I made several films for Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s charity. They formed part of a Cancer Awareness campaign designed to reach out to the local community in coastal Sussex. The first film centered around people living with cancer and their stories.
These two prostate cancer awareness films were played to the stadium crowd during match day half-time. They featured current and ex-player Craig Mackail-Smith and Guy Butters and ex-manager Alan Mullory.
