Ugh.. lots of films not a lot of time. But here are some of the nice ones that I worked on:
United Visual Artists:
We went to a nice quiet town outside brighton to make a load of loud crazy music with Felix. It was great!
I “edit produced” this series of films on the 2010 UK general election. It was a grueling edit that saw us up against an unmovable and impending deadline (these don’t happen very often at VBS). I’m really happy with how these films turned out in the end.
You’ve heard of this film Where the Wild Things Are by now, maybe? Well, back during the making of movie, Motherboard’s own Shane Smith headed over to London and caught up with the film’s director, Spike Jonze, and his legion of masterminds as they toiled away at the digital artistry that would ultimately breathe life into the creatures known as the Wild Things. It was the painstaking work of 300 artists and tech-wielding specialists, who, in the process of tweaking every frame and every miniscule detail of every image, undertook to create an entirely new way of animating—an ingenius blend of the artistry of traditional, film-based movie-making and the wizardry of newfangled technologies. In the end, Jonze and Co. created some of the most compelling monster-beings in history.

I produced and shot this, but it was cut in the US office as part of the series of Wild Things docs that we made at VBS.
