  • NLC Fire Prevention Campaign

  • Francis Macdonald | Hamilton Mausoleum Suite

    In November 2016 I was approached by musician and composer Francis Macdonald to film the recording of his classical album ‘Hamilton Mausoleum Suite’. The album was to be recorded inside Hamilton Mausoleum, which has one of the longest echoes of any man-made building in the world.

    I cannot accurately describe the warmth and richness of the sound in that space as it encapsulated us during recording. It’s something which must be experienced first hand. I feel incredibly privileged to have done so.

    In July 2014 I shot this promo film over two days for The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh and The Marketing Cafe.

  • ‘Split’

    In August I shot short body horror film ‘Split’ for director Andy Stewart of Shining Example Films.
    Post-production is now complete and ‘Split’ is about to hit film festivals.

    Starring Austin Hayden and Shian Denovan. In the tradition of “melt movies” such as ‘Street Trash’ and ‘The Incredible Melting Man’, ‘Split’ explores an extreme physical response to guilt that will turn one man’s life upside down.
