Plan B- She Said

This video follows on from 'Stay too Long'...
I did the casting and choreographed the jury. Loved it! Great fun again and enjoyed having a bit of creative input with the jury. Thanks Daniel and Tim! Be the change!!

Origami Films

I have been working for Origami Films on a freelance basis as production assistant for a few years now. It's like a family and I love the shoots. They make films and many Children's tv commercials like Power Rangers, Ben 10, Tamagotchi and Girls World etc...
Bill Clark is a brilliant writer/director and Mel Paton is a fab producer- great team!
They gave me a chance in the industry and I'm very grateful and have learnt a lot from them.
My straight 8 film is now on their website-
click on short films and you can view mine. It was shown at rushes soho film festival as part of the straight 8 screenings. Look back at my blog in 2009 to see my journey- haha!

Blues Brothers Banned- Lincoln Gig

Last Saturday morning I was at the fiming of the new Plan B music video in a court room in Elephant and Castle, London while the rest of the band were on their way to Lincoln for a gig.
After over seeing choreography and checking cast in I was on a train from London to Lincoln to join my fellow band mates.
It was a great gig- over 400 people came to see us and we sold out which was good considering we hadn't played in Lincoln before. Standing ovation at the end was a nice feeling but gutted I missed out on the whole shoot.


Photos by Gary Bailey. Need to figure out a way of making these bigger...


I love the snow :)

It was so lovely to have snow around Christmas. It was a bit disruptive but still so pretty.

This is Rusty, my dog

My Diana F camera- first film!

These are a few of the photographs taken on my lomography camera. Not bad for a first attempt. A bit boring though- need to experiment!

Plan B- Stay too long

This was an amazing shoot to work on. It was pretty crazy but in a good way. We shot it over 2 days in several locations around Soho and East London. We had loads of cast including Plan B's mates and Kaya Scodelario (Effy from Skins).
I got a credit on promo news...
