I was hired recently as an camera & drone operator for the Etape Loch Ness 2019 cycle event. A fantastic gig, very early morning rise and filming with the aid of some sweet motorbikes.
REBRAND! The time had come to get around to rebranding and here it is! Play North is the new name for all my freelance activities: filming, aerials, editing & motion graphics.
I was ecstatic when Jazz Scotland asked me to make some promo films for them and some of their highlighted artists. It meant combining three things I love, namely, jazz, the highlands (well, Scottish islands in this case) and whisky into one trip whilst filming some incredibly talented musicians.
Free was born out of the idea of getting a bit older, feeling the strains of modern life, however still having the drive and the passion to get out and use skateboarding as a form of escape, pleasure and tranquility.
I'm really passionate about 2D motion graphics. Here's the first of my 'opposites' projects
In 1935 radar was invented by the physicist Sir Robert Watson-Watt & co. Here's one take on a GUI for it.
Snowboarding. I love it. Droning. Love that too. When I can, I combine the two. I was lucky enough go to Leysin in Switzerland twice this year and took the opportunity to capture some beautiful alpine landscapes.
Finally got around to making up a motion graphics showreel! And here it is. It showcases just some of the work I've been doing over the last couple of years. Motion graphics / animation is an area in which I'm developing a wider skill-set, and more clients. Have a look and if you'd like some motion graphics / 2d animation for your project then I'm always open to new projects and ideas.
I was out filming at Abbotsford House, the home of Sir Walter Scott, recently in relation to an online course about the Jacobites I was filming in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh and National Museums Scotland.
