1st AD on promos

I've been keeping busy this past couple of weeks firsting pop promos with HSI director Douglas Hart. Douglas Hart

Apoa and Kiloh think this is way more impressive than making washing powder ads or short films about suicidal teenagers (actually on second thoughts they might think that was pretty cool too...).

The first promo was an 8 minute track called Sea Within A Sea for The Horrors which was basically all live performance but with a psychadelic projection that made the whole piece look pretty cool.

The second was for Last Of The English Roses by Pete Doherty and involved shooting Pete and a five a side football game outside. I'm sure the temperature had fallen below zero that day and in fact might have contributed to the playback breaking down almost as soon as we started using it!

Heather, our production manager, resorted to chasing the camera & Pete as we paced the football court, with the track playing off her laptop! Heather on playback Well it worked thankfully! But we were all relieved when we had to move inside to shoot the final lip-synch inside and standing still!

Kiloh was desperate to miss school and help out on set to be near Pete...

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
