January 2015 update

It’s been quite on the film front as I’ve been working solidly on 2 great productions for CBBC.

First up was Technobabble where I was producing 10 x 5 minute films looking into the future of music, travel, wearable tech  etc. We got to film at some amazing locations with amazing people. A couple of highlights was at Andy Serkis’ Imaginarium Studios and Alton Towers – although attaching a couple of Go Pros to a rollercoaster that has 14 loops is always a bit of a hair-raising experience…

Next up and my current job is on Pop Slam! Series 2. This is a series looking into the lives of the world’s leading music stars from Beyonce to Sam Smith. Last week we were filming interviews around London including going back to Radio 1 & 1Xtra.

Click on the image above for the link. I spent some time with Lucas and Hatton Promotions. Being in the dressing room and capturing first hand what happens before and after a big fight and soaking up the atmosphere was a real privilege.

Boxing has always made great material for films but only a select few have captured it well in documentaries. The slick, flashy All Access by Showtime Sports and HBO’s 24/7 are the modern benchmark. My film Gallaghers Gym was inspired by those but this one was a little different. It was more fly on the wall, letting the actuality speak for itself – as much as it could with the limited kit I had.
