Video Edits

Just working on one of the video pieces for the show which opens in a couple of weeks, I love working through the footage and pulling the piece together.

Its also a very creative process and working with the poem voice over sound track makes me look at the footage in a different way.

I’ll upload to vimeo when I have an edit and post the link on this website.

Video Shoot

The rain finally stopped and we were able to shoot an hour of footage this morning on the streets of Lancing, West Sussex. It was great to finally get this project moving especially when I already have the poem voice over recorded by my friend.

I’m starting to edit this over the weekend and I’ve got a good feeling that it will come together nicely. The final poem video will go up on vimeo over the next few weeks and I’ll post a link on this website.

A collection of my short videos, including this one, will be showing at the Brighton Media Centre during February and March as part of a digital media arts show. More details later…

Raining Again

Damn, raining again, I’ve been trying to shoot some video with a street cleaner for my latest video project. The only trouble is that its been raining in the early morning most days I can shoot.

I really want early morning light for this one so hopefully we can shoot this piece and get this part of my video project moving!

Poetry Exploration

My video poetry project is progressing further, I’m in the middle of a poetry exploration and I’m reading lots of verse to pick the best poems to film. I’m rediscovering old favourites and finding some real gems through this journey. I’ve settled on a great poem by Brian Patten which is going into the mix for the project.

Santa bought me some poetry books which have helped my search and I’m now quite close to making my final choice. I’ll post up more details soon…

10,000 Cents

I saw this a while ago but it has stayed with me as a fantastic example of online digital art. Each participant was given an unrelated rectangle in which they would copy a fragment of the whole art work using a simple custom built paint app.

They all came together to produce this: 10,000 Cents

I love the concept, its good stuff!

Filming Again

My next video project is under way, I’m working towards a mixed media digital art exhibition which is going to be held in Brighton early next year. My ideas are coming together with story boards for a series of short films, I’m braving the stormy weather that we are experiencing on the south coast of England to scout some locations that I’ll be using for the shoots. I’ll post up further news soon…

Poetry Project

I’m working on my latest video project where I’m going to adapt various poems by creating short features. I’ve been reading a wide range of poems to get a feel for what I’m after and I’ve been discovering some old favourites from a while back. It’s a very interesting and creative process.

I’ll post up more on this website when I have worked on my ideas and start the story boards, I also need a working title…

Poetry and Video

There is a long tradition of poetry being set to film and for my next video art project I’m developing a series of short films to illustrate poems. This is an idea that I’ve been wanting to do for some time and I’m very pleased to be making a start on this!

Here is a poetry video that I created for my Alberic’s Scrapbook video installation – enjoy!
