I found myself while sitting on a frozen rock, cold penetrating my ineffectual layers of clothing like daggers trying to jab at my bones. I’d been up since before the sun rose on this frosty winder’s morning and I was just willing the sun to bleach some heat into me; but it wasn’t to be. … More The Filmmaker’s War
A selection of photos taken in France during a winter trip with friends in 2004-2005. After the ferry crossing from Plymouth, we visited Mont Saint-Michel before continuing south along the eastern coast to a friend’s holiday home. We also visited the local town of Laval during several nights out. All shots were taken with a Sony compact digital camera. … More Photography in France
Another addition to the SF//Doors/Corridors series. This one was a little difficult as the directly keenly utilised 2 distinct spaces: the human Prometheus ship and the alien cave/ship interiors. With this in mind I tried to split the doors/corridors into human and alien. Enjoy! Footage © 20th Century Fox Music by Marc Streitenfeld Edit … More Prometheus//Doors/Corridors
After the dreadful (pun intended) mess that was 1995’s Judge Dredd, this low budget version of 2000AD’s comic book anti-hero successfully captures the tone and violent action. I remembered looking forward to Judge Dredd back in the early 90s even though I had little knowledge of the source material. But it was clear to see … More Dredd Meets Goldsmith
To continue my series of doors and corridors in science fiction cinema, here’s the first Star Trek flick (in 1080p no less!). I’ve expanded the usual ship-bound theme a little to encompass the use of ‘alien’ themed doors and corridors from the V’ger space craft and its ‘cloud’. I’m sure I’ll get around to the … More Star Trek Meets Doors/Corridors
Have I really done 14 of these now?! Well, here it is, another breakfast sketch. Of course you can have corn flakes any time of the day but thats a discussion that goes way beyond the simple pleasure of these sketches… “Is there any way to make it play itself?” What would be a most … More Games with Corn Flakes
A small collection of photographs taken of the sky and sunsets in various UK locations (Leeds, Frome, Warminster, Manchester). I suppose the sky and sunsets in particular will always provide a rich visual feast for the photographer, especially when the land becomes a silhouette and the light plays a merry dance with the lens.

I like playing with light in photography, finding ways to keep the shutter open to capture motion in light or just finding cool beams or reflections of light. This is my first in a series of stills I’m calling Lightworks. Shot on a Sony P100 digital compact camera in 2007 in Leeds.
A look at the starship Enterprise in its many guises through history from The Original Series to the new Rebooted Trek. A nostalgic look back and a wry look at the destruction and the loss of life in what is increasingly mutating from an adventure into an action franchise. Footage from: Star Trek (The Original … More The Death and Birth of the Enterprise
During a hectic video shoot in the scorching sunshine in the depths of the Cypriot countryside, we managed to take a break by the sea to take photos and relax. This was early spring and still rather cool even though Cyprus is in the Med. Even so, we enjoyed a couple of hours to explore, shoot … More Photography at the Beach
