One of my biggest passions is snowboarding and winter mountain life. It's the best. It's also a great opportunity for filming some stunning aerials.
PLAY NORTH - drone filming
I needed to create a aerial drone showreel so others could see the potential of this type of filming. Most of the locations are around Scotland, with some shots of the Polish coastline and Swiss Alps in there too.
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.
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 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.
I was given a brief from STV / STV Edinburgh to create an advert for Omni Furnishing which has a few shops around Edinburgh. The client wanted a bit of humour in the commercial but also, of course, to get across the message of all the great furniture he had in store.
So I finally got around to editing a new showreel. It shows my filming, editing, drone work and motion graphics work over the last couple of years.
Not far from Edinburgh, Siccar Point is a rocky promontory that has become a place of pilgrimage for geologists from across the globe.
I absolutely love title sequences. They are an excellent way of setting the tone of what you're about to see. And the mixture of footage, motion graphics and abstract artistic techniques is my absolute favourite cup of tea.
