Short Films

For details of our previous short films, follow the link to 'Moth', 'Ghosthunter' and 'The Essay'. Where you will find information on the making of these films plus storyboards, videos, dairies and 'production' and 'behind the scenes' photographs.

Ghosthunter made it to the final 10 films shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination and and has sold to television internationally and to Virgin Atlantic Airlines. Moth has toured the international short film festival circuit picking up awards for 'Best Film' and 'Best Director' along the way.

Music Videos

Taking advantage of the current vogue for DSLR filmmaking and investing in our (growing) kit has enabled us to shoot and post produce our own low budget projects, almost entirely self contained. Currently we have a number of small projects slated and the music videos are an example of how we can produce these films for very little finance.

Head on over to our Vimeo Channel which we hope will grow as we showcase some of those DSLR projects we're currently working on. Also, check out the individual project pages where we'll be adding content about the making of those films.

Our Book

Our book, "How To Make Great Short Feature Films: The Making Of Ghosthunter", foreword by David Parfitt, tells the story of the making of our first 35mm short feature, "Ghosthunter". Published with the book is the DVD of the film plus many 'making of' special features. More information on this can be found by following the link to 'The Book'.

2014 BFI Statistical Yearbook

I always like to sneak in a quick rundown of the BFI´s Statistical Yearbook 2014 before the end of July (published last week). So with a cup of tea and a chocolate Hob Nob (actually a half coated Choc Chunk Cookie from Aldi #BestBiscuitInTheWorld) time for a little light reading.


 

Nomad USB Charger(s) Review

We occasionally get stuff sent to us to review and I usually only like to do those which have a direct bearing on what we do or how we go about our business. The two USB chargers I was sent last month fit into this category, especially as our dependence on mobile devices increases.


 

DJI Ronin Shipping

DJI Innovations announced their own handheld stabilised system at NAB earlier this year. The DJI Ronin is very affordable, available now to pre-order from B&H for $4,499 (approx. £2,800) and shipping starts this month, just as promised. The rig will support up to 16lb of camera weight and that, combined with the price above, makes this a very interesting option!

There isn’t much out there yet on just what images using this system look like but here are two from DJI Innovations themselves. The first is a short film called, “Brainstorm”, which transfers the gimbal between multiply camera platforms for a seamless ‘one take’ shot.
