Take a moment to think, can you imagine what a hundred thousand birds would look like flying through the sky? Personally, I wouldn’t know what to think.

Award wining video SEOUL World Short Film & Video Festival (South Korea) a gold medal best editing. The bike ride takes place annually at the end of August and is a gruelling 25 mile ride around Poole Harbour. It’s an opportunity to dress up in your finest or most bizarre clothes and spend a day cycling and drinking your way through the English country side. The high light of the ride is a sombre remembrance service for Cyril. Speeches are made, songs are sung and the participants drink to his memory. The ride finishes where it started, The Blue Boar, Poole.
For my 100th video on Vimeo I wanted to do something different, so here’s a quick look at the previous 99 videos. This show reel is my journey of creativity, there’s time lapse, music, travel and documentary videos. Like many of the videos seen here, the visuals were created in After Effects and compiled in Premiere Pro and I wrote the music using Cubase and assorted VSTi’s.
Spoof news report about life in rural England. In 1780, Lord Milton, decided that the adjacent market town, Middleton, was disturbing his vision of rural peace. He commissioned architect Sir William Chambers and landscape gardener Capability Brown to design a new village, Milton Abbas, in a wooded valley (Luccombe Bottom). Most of the existing villagers were relocated here, and the previous village was demolished and the site landscaped.

A tilt shift of boats shot close to where I live. The fishing boats were shot a couple of years ago and the rest was shot recently from my balcony. I used a 500mm mirror lens for a lot of the shots of the bay, whilst it might not be as good as a Canon 500mm prime lens it is a little cheaper! Edited in Photoshop, compiled and colour corrected in After Effects. The music was created in Cubase.
