Music video for the Alpine Directed by Ryan Hope and DoP’d by Tony Miller. This involved a lot of very long tracking shots with the AR rig used extensively to go from high mode to low mode in one shot.

Freeing up the DoP. In promos where lighting setups become more and more complicated and schedules more and more brutal I have found myself offering to DoP’s the option of myself akin to an A-Camera operator role. I am up for doing handheld, Steadicam and Sticks if required or B-camera on Sticks/handheld getting pickups. This [...]
Using the AR in head spinning mode rather than stabilization mode I operated on this promo for Director Franklyn Banks and DoP Thonke. The theme was much floatyness. I think we succeeded.
Again I used the MK-V AR to spin the camera revolutions for this video for Rankin Directing which Vicky Lawton worked tirelessly to make a creative to unsettle and disturb. DoP Tat Tadcliffe DoP’d this moody promo with lots of claustrophobic close-ups, scary clowns and caged humans. It was a long days shooting with Rankin [...]
We used the MK-V AR rig to great effect for this surreal video for Clement Marfo directed by Martin Pickering now at Nothing To See Here. It allowed us to get in over the hot tub as well as the writing sea of semi-clad girls. Then we span the camera. Photo: Si Gross The AR [...]
A little Steadicam on my part for DoP Nic Booth amongst angry rebellious school girls armed with guns and burning cars. Shot as if part of some Japanese horror movie featuring the band being kidnapped by feral school kids a la Battle Royale, Spector and Director Ben Reed also get meta from the start: the [...]
Another little promo I Steadicam Operated for Ben Todd DoP. For Marcus Collins’s “Mercy”. A relatively long day in and around Old Street offset by the fact that its only a stones throw away from where I am based. Marcus Collins – Mercy from Thomas English on Vimeo.
Done in one take with Commandante DoP Mattias Nyberg and Director Zac Ella on the side of a really bloody steep hill! Mattias said if I faltered he’d have me shot so we did many many takes backwards on that stupidly steep hill in painful low-mode with an Alexa Plus and Master primes. It hurt [...]
Fun little music video I did for Dop Brian Fawcett. Another long promo day with little time off Steadicam culminating in a load of Don Juan running shots at 11pm. As I remember we shot this on the Sony F3 without an off-camera recorder. Eva Arnold did a fantastic job at pulling focus and managing [...]
There are a few ways to spin cameras. Traditionally a Scorpio head has been used this comes with its own issues. I have a few ways of spinning the MK-V AR head independently of level for different types of applications enabling the camera to fly anywhere at any angle and that camera can rotate in [...]
