Started filming my first hip hop music video today. We're doing a scene where the subject is standing over a burning 44 gallon drum fire, but had to simulate the fire in the studio without the fire. Cut a bunch of holes in a sheet of black card and moved it in front of a spotlight. Because of the depth of field it blurs out in the background and gives the effect of a burning fire. Cool stuff
I made a set of charms to sell at Gorgeous Festival last year. Also kept a few for family gifts at xmas time. I hope they bring good luck to them.
These are made using paper clay, imprinting a wood cut stamp and then sanding the edges down to smooth them.
Rip It Up has featured a music video I made for Surviving Sharks. Check out the article here :
When I was in Malta last year I had the chance to spend a day swimming at the Blue Lagoon. The water was so clear and the snorkeling was amazing because of it. So I came home to the start of winter in Australia and wanted to bring some of the great vibes back. Outside the kitchen window at our house there was a brick wall just staring at us each morning, so I decided to paint it. At the bottom of the piece I added "Going to Gozo" in text. If I was a fish and I had a choice I would swim there.
I've been working on a large canvas once a week down at Forge Creative Warehouse at Port Adelaide. It's good to have a long term piece that you chip away at slowly and have plenty of time in between to digest what you are actualyl doing. This piece is all experiment. I keep layering it up, putting down new colours and applying the paint in different ways each time.
