Liberating Structures

I was very fortunate to be a part of this event a few weeks ago… Originally I was contacted to potentially document the day and make a short film. However, having spent time with the team it became clear we had many interests in common and I was happy to simply tag along and doContinue reading “Liberating Structures”

Timelapse and Blendeo

If you’ve seen any of my work you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Timelapse. For example: It’s a shot-for-shot remake of the Netflix “House of Cards” intro captured using iMotion (for iOS in the App Store) on an iPad and an iPhone 4. I made “City of Design” over 3 years ago nowContinue reading “Timelapse and Blendeo”

#MakeSomething

This is what I tell my kids. Usually after I’ve turned off the wi-fi or taken away the TV or Xbox… “Dad, what can I do?” “Make something!” For seven years now I’ve actively been finding ways to get people creative with the technology that would have had me giddy with excitement when I wasContinue reading “#MakeSomething”

#MadeOnAMobile in Dumfries (Scottish Borders)

Thanks to Lindsey Mason Ross who invited me down to Dumfries in July to deliver a #MadeOnAMobile film making session to local businesses at Dumfries & Galloway Business Gateway. Everyone had a great time and left inspired with a variety of ideas for promoting their businesses using video. I’m now booking for Winter 2018 soContinue reading “#MadeOnAMobile in Dumfries (Scottish Borders)”

#MadeOnAMobile – what’s it all about?

2018 has been a whirlwind of increased demand for workshops precisely at a time when I decided to demonstrate the power of mobile film making with an hour long documentary – captured, edited and shared from a single iPad. So I took a few hours recently to put a short film together to encapsulate whatContinue reading “#MadeOnAMobile – what’s it all about?”

#MadeOnAMobile @ Stirling University

I always want my workshops to be fun. I want people to learn and enjoy themselves doing it. The group from Stirling Uni were going to enjoy themselves anyway… It was business as usual, making movies on mobile devices but this group took it to another level. It was such a fun day with some reallyContinue reading “#MadeOnAMobile @ Stirling University”

Open Close Movie is #MadeOnAMobile

Mobile film making is fine for making social media shorts – but what about a full length feature? Sean Baker, Michel Gondry, Steven Soderbergh – all of them Hollywood directors who have made films using an iPhone camera for a cinematic release. None of them, however, edited their films using the same device. “The enemyContinue reading “Open Close Movie is #MadeOnAMobile”

#MadeOnAMobile @ The National Museum of Scotland

2018 hit a high point and it was only March – invited to deliver a #MadeOnAMobile workshop at the National Museum of Scotland! It’s fair to say I’m a fan boy when it comes to NMS. It’s even in my profile pic on Twitter! The building is stunning, the collection is amazing and entrance isContinue reading “#MadeOnAMobile @ The National Museum of Scotland”
