I have often found that most showreels are an individual's fight to rescue whatever work they have already broken their back over trying to create and cram it into a box small enough so that someone will click play, and mine is no different. So let me take you on this editor's logistical nightmare and maybe in a fit of impulse you might consider seeing more of this man and his shameless self-promotion, so please be my guest.
The music for this showreel has been supplied by Dexter Britain from his creative commons albums. If you haven't managed to check him out go and take a look at his site, his stuff is awesome.
Not content with directing all of the films on this site, I have also written them as well. If by any chance you want to see the spelling mistakes and a transcript of stuff that wasn't good enough to make it into the final films you can give them a read.
But honestly, I like having the scripts here. All the films have changed from writing to completion and I think it's interesting to see how the films have progressed. So if you're a little curious about how the films were originally planned out there is a link next to each video for you to click on.
Orion Powell is the singer in a band called City of Ashes and we have worked together a few films now, okay maybe it's more than a few films, maybe our showreels could be the exactly the same with only the titles changed for good measure.
Anyway, Ori calls me up one day and says he needs a music video. So we got togther, shoot some pretty good stuff, quickly shot another one straight after that and the rest was history. So, if you like the videos please check out the bands music on iTunes.
All the shorts on the website have been created with little or no money and people always ask me how do you get such product value out of no money? Well I don't have any money, it's as simple as that, it's not really a choice. But maybe that's not really the answer they were looking for.
However, if you would like to give me some money please get in touch and I will make that very easy for you. If, like me, you don't have any money then just sit back and enjoy the films, because in my opinion I think their pretty good and that's a fact.
