For those of you who know me you will probably know I’m a little fanatical about great music and finding undiscovered musicians. William Crighton is a fantastic artist I met a year ago and I have admired his work ever since. So it seemed a natural progression that I wanted to tie some of my creative thinking in with his amazingly beautiful and powerful music. The result is this 3.43 minute one shot music video for the song ‘Woman like you’. We shot down in the small NSW country town of Junee using a Mövi and in 4k. I’m sure we can all appreciate the challenges associated with long single take shooting especially when combined with zero budget but regardless we had a stack of fun and the result is a great interpretation of a beautiful song, well I think it is. I’ll be honest though there are a few things I would do differently, possibly because I’m a bit of obsessive with detail but hey thats the whole idea of giving things a red hot go and learning lessons.
I hope you enjoy (can I suggest that you don a pair of headphones and click full screen :)

Over the last few weeks I’ve directed a TVC for University of Tasmania (UTAS) down in Tassie (Bearnie/Launceston/Hobart)
The shoot went amazingly well and fun was had by all. We shot in one of my favorite styles: loose, run and gun and all on a Red (wow how fantastic is that)
Just wrapping up the edit so stay tuned for the results.
Below are some behind the scenes shots.
