a new video for NYE…possibly but most likely in early january if the label decide to hold it off for a while.
have a wonderful xmas. air carriers were charging extortionate prices to get home to belfast for christmas so hannah and i booked a boat and train. i will be firmly holding two fingers to the sky as i travel home in complete luxury as my paper is spread widely over the lavish table in front of my reserved seat. it will be pointless though as there will be nothing in the sky to see my two fingered symbol of peace..
it’s been ages. i promise so much in this news section that i didn’t want to write anymore until some of them actually came off. i can’t even stick to that. there is nothing much to report on the filming side of things. i recently made a short live film about John and Jehn who are a great band from france. they came over to london and i had a quick chat with them and recorded a couple of songs at their show. it was the first shoot i have done entirely on my own so it was nice to experiment and see how to make it work. i think it looks great. the audio is with the “doctor of noize” in bangor and once i get that back i’ll throw it up here.
a couple of blogs ago I had mentioned a number of music videos that were going to happen. surprise surprise, nothing as happened. different reasons for each artist but there you go. there is one planned but thats all i’ll say till it’s shot. i have been working for an editing company as a runner for pretty mental hours. i have been pretty work shy over the last few years in the nine to five bracket although this is usually eight to six or sometimes eight to eight. when i have gotten home i am just beat and can’t face cutting anything. thus production has slowed down.
we didn’t win anything at this years IMTV awards although we were nominated in three categories which isn’t bad for a first time entry. Justin and Elina from KKC went down on my behalf as I have sold out and am living in london now. they played the wrong clip when our Moon video was shown and some weird goth metal video won best live video. i was more saddened however that the Tom McShane film didn’t get nominated. I had convinced Tom to let me put it online early in order to enter it…….oh shit.
I managed to get some paid freelance work on a Miles Kane shoot which was pretty handy coming up to xmas. miles was a gentleman as was the rest of the band. he enjoyed a couple of biscuits baked by my dear lady The Lonely Hunter. There is a new website coming sometime in the not too distant future and it will keep note of other un-babysweet related work etc. The competition section is going as there are no competitions anymore. Thanks to those who won and sent in their pictures, the winners who didn’t are dead to me…..oh shit.
To be honest I don’t know how it will look. I will now fill this up with photos as im so bored from being off work that I can’t even write. I was gagging for three days off, I got five and I have wasted all of them like an ungrateful prick.
