Aarhus, Denmark

May 12, 2018

Just back from a visit to Aarhus, Denmark. Went to check out this module at this uni to see the fit with the BA Filmmaking at NTU.
See most recent showreels for the work produced from this module here and here.

Never been to Scandinavia before and really enjoyed. Shown around by an old friend and really liked the vibe of Denmark’s second largest city.

The dock area where the film city (film byen) is located was buzzy with lots of media companies and studio spaces as part of this development.

Went to a bar where tennis super pro caroline wozniacki frequents/frequented and as I say, really enjoyed it and feel it will be a good fit for the students.

update

March 12, 2018

Been super busy. working on a number of research projects, 1 subject to an nda so can’t show much but been really fun, editing 15 secs insta versions of video. Playing with trying to get the same ‘power’ into the 15 secs as the longer version of a test edit carry.

Other project is a project with architecture where the research is into using camera to measure bridge deformation. Research question is how effective can cheaper camera be? Ordinarily the cameras used cost 30G or upwards.

Posted a couple of images of an in lab test.

When the weather gets better we’ll be going on into the field to do some further tests. My role is to acquire the measurement data and I’m also making a creative film, working title, ‘buildings that breathe’.

I also submitted a doco idea for this https://whickersworldfoundation.com

January 19, 2018

So NTU are starting a BA Hons Filmmaking course that I’ll be teaching on and talking about periodically about here. Applications are proving very strong. Starts in October of this year.

Super excited to be teaching filmmaking for most of my week once it kicks in.

 


Disgrace

February 27, 2015

Working through films that I’ve recorded over the years on my set top box and not gotten around to seeing so last night was Disgrace.

John Malkovich played the main character and I didn’t recognise any of the supporting players. Not read JM Coetzee’s Booker-prize winning book that the film was based on but film felt very disjointed and hard for me to get into and I guess it’s one of those books that was super complex to adapt as a film.

The Way Back

Enjoyed them all. the introductory shot of Imelda Staunton near the opening shot was just like Lost In translation’s opening shot right? I wonder how much more of her story was shot that we never got to see.
Tyrannosaur was good and for me deserved all the plaudits, looking forward to his next directorial film.
Way back- Peter Weir’s had a really interesting mix of films and again his work is something that I enjoy watching.
