2015 Showreel!

Blimey I haven’t updated this in a while! You’ll have to forgive me – had a rather hectic start to the year. Turns out being homeless, jobless and moneyless in a new country where you hardly know anyone ain’t exactly a walk in the park! Long story short, one of my best mates from uni came over with another mate he was travelling with, and we ended up managing to blag staying on this lovely girl we met on Tinder’s floor for 3 weeks while we found a flat and jobs for us all. The housing crisis in Auckland is definitely not exaggerated  - when we actually found an available flat we could move in to, the landlord had to turn down 3 people in the space of time it took us to run to the cashpoint to get out the rest of our deposit! We all managed to get jobs just in time to pay our 1st weeks rent too – was a bit stressful but another example of how things seem to magically fall into place with a little bit of persistence and blind faith.

So yeah, we’re now settled in a flat in the centre of Auckland, not the largest place I’ve ever lived but we got a lovely view of the sunset from our 8th floor balcony:

I’m currently paying the rent by working in a cafe, but am trying to push my video career simultaneously. Hence the reason why I created a brand spanking new showreel for 2015 :)

Sok San Street Festival 2014!

If you’ve been following my blog recently you will know that I was involved with the wonderful Sok San Street Festival that happened last Sunday…

Here is the Official Video that I have been working on. It was great to be involved in such a lovely, communal event, and to work with people with such love and compassion for what they do :) Thanks again to everyone involved, and to Mitch (Ancient Adventures Cambodia) for letting me borrow his camera for the day! Extra thanks to VideoCopilot for the Earth Zoom tutorial, and to all the musicians who put their music up for free download (see links below!)

And click here for a lovely selection of photos by Dara Pech!

Happy Birthday Hospital Records!

My all-time favourite Drum & Bass label is now old enough to attend their own events! Massive shouts to Hospital and everyone who has made it what it is, you guys are pioneers. So stoked to have been involved with their music videos too, 2 years ago I would have wet the bed if I thought I would be making videos of my travels to music I love for my favourite label! Anyway, check out the video below (edited by the man Nezih Savaskan, and features some clips from some of the videos I’ve made), and keep supporting the UK music scene, we can only get stronger!

Also click below to check out their ‘We are 18′ compilation, which is basically 3 CDs of unreleased bangers, back to back with unreleased bangers. I’ve also done a video for one of the tracks, you can check it out here before I write a proper post about it!

Sabai Jeep Adventures!

A few weeks ago, a friend I met through my job at Lotus Lodge out here in Siem Reap bought a Jeep, in order to sell tours around the beautiful Cambodian countryside to tourists. He asked me if I would be so kind as to make a promotional video for him, and of course I was happy to oblige. We took Ed the GoPro, and another little handheld, and this is pretty much the gist of what went down (minus the beer drinking):

Also check out their website over at sabaijeepadventures.com, and as with all my new videos, the soundtrack comes from a talented unsigned artist, and is available for free download. In this case we’ve got 16 year old YK from London, with a track suitably called In The Jungle. You can grab it here.
