Drum & Bass // Fred V & Grafix – “Major Happy” // Hospital Records // November 2012

*Nominated as Best Music Video in the 2013 Drum and Bass Arena Awards*

I wanted to make a video that reflected the track name – “Major Happy”, so using footage I filmed while travelling Europe in the summer of 2012, as well as some other footage of general good vibes with mates, this is what many hours on Premiere Pro and many cups of tea left me with. Please note the red bits in the video were required to reflect the Sick Music 3 album art.

Best viewed loud and in high definition.

Massive shout out to my girlfriend at the time – Violet, for driving us around Europe that summer, and to all my friends for the constant supply of good vibes. Thank you also to everyone for your kind words, lovely YouTube comments and for sharing this video. I love you all!

Drum & Bass // Keeno – One More Moment // Typographer // Med School Music // April 2015

Hired by UK Drum & Bass Label, Med School Music, to create typography to represent the lyrics on the official video for Keeno’s One More Moment. A true cross-continental collaboration this – music created in the UK by Keeno, footage filmed in Portugal by Atmos, and the type created in New Zealand by me. The internet truly does open up a new window for creative possibilities and collaborations!

Software used: Adobe After Effects

 

UK Hip-Hop // JPEG – “A Bitter Abyss” // Unsigned // January 2013

Hired by UK Hip-Hop artist JPEG to produce a music video for the title track of his forthcoming EP “A Biter Abyss”.

Best viewed in high definition:

I was the only member of film crew during the production of this video, and as such took on all roles in order to see its completion. It was filmed entirely in JPEG’s living room with my Canon 550d and Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens, and was edited with the Adobe Suite.

JPEG’s new EP, “A Bitter Abyss” will be available to download soon, but in the mean time, his 1st self titled EPcan be downloaded for free, here. I must also give a massive shout out to the producer of all of JPEG’s beats, Benny Aves, who doesn’t get the credit he deserves!
