Filming for the second block of Welsh Food Heroes. Specially for St.Davids day, we've got the classic recipes in hand. Feeling a little overweight after "helping" to eat the produce.

London Mint CK Filming

London Mint CK Filming

The day of the Red Sun!

Whilst all looked skyward at an extremely unusual sky, tinged orange by sand from distant desserts, I and the trusty team saddled up the Utah, headed for London.

Filming for the jolly nice London Mint team, we rigged our enormous portable greenscreen studio in the most elaborate location to date.

Dripping in luxury and sporting two chandeliers a bed and a dressing table covered in jewellery, the location house playied host to us in style.

The everso lovely Jenny Bond was set to film for two hours, but being a consummate professional, we were wrapped in record time. What a joy!

February chill

So the graphic novel / comic is on track, the crayons are out and I am booking the flights for San Diego comic con to see if anyone likes it, assuming I can get it printed in time.

After filming and grading performances by the talented song writer Harry Philips in January, I pottered over to Nashville with the cool dudes from Coolhead Productions to shoot Deep Purple recording their new album. It is a real privilege to be tolerated in the rehearsal space and then (on the second trip out a week later!) in the amazing recording studio, The Tracking Rooms (thetrackingroomstudio.com).

We were well looked after and got a real insight into how the massive sound is created, working alongside talent that has been involved with some of the classic albums of our time.

Although some tracks are added to and refined, the main thrust of the tracks are performed as a group. It's rather odd filming with everyone else wearing headphones, Its so quiet until you listen in the control room and your ears are blown off!

Used the new prime lens sets for the whole shoot as there was little to no light on location. What a life saver. Working at f1.5 everyday is pretty challenging but the Sony F5 worked its magic for some good clean images. If only we could get some full resolution viewfinders for our £3,000!


The "Sick t" hoody (sickts.co.uk) was shown off in music city. I really should be on commission!
