Apocalypse Now


Sailing the dutch barge narrowboat Adelente down the Shropshire Union Canal can get a little like a Francis Ford Coppola Movie at times.
There are some very unusual people here on the canals, and I might be one of them.

Day off? No chance



Most kids want to borrow the car, or need a new iPhone.
This one wants visuals for a show in Vegas.

Ibibio Sound Machine

Very excited to be working with this super cool band


Winter Lights - Canary Wharf


A cold wet and very smelly day spent in a river bed at Canary Wharf installing the projection system for Winter Lights.. A 5 projector blend in resolume with 5.1 surround sound from Qlab and a dollop of timecode for good measure.
It was fine, but of course you can't have a job that involves a 'Video Artist' without something going wrong.  Oh hum..

Berlin - Promo shoot




Much drama on set as the 10m circumference screen ends up as a 10m diameter screen.
We got there in the end, but it was a bumpy ride.

Dublin NYE 2019



Two big waterscreens in the middle of the river for New Year's Eve in Dublin.
Best part of the week was some young chap diving off the bridge into the bitterly cold river during the show.

GMB



Breakfast TV and tbh I've been awake at 2am every night this week so it wasn't such a big deal to get up and go into London to do a projection on the ITV studio for Good Morning Britain.

The End of The End


Finally, we come to the end of The Orb's 30th Anniversary Tour.
Melkweg Amsterdam and I am reminded of earlier times when I came here 40 years ago to another world, of late flower power freedom and psychedelia.
The gig was preceded by a showing of Lunar Orbit - the documentary where I get a 
1⁄3rd of a second walk on part and you get to see the back of my head..
The glamour of it all.
Anyway, it looked great, if I do have to say so myself.

Orb 2018



As we head into the last few fly-in shows of The Orb tour, there's still time to nudge some more content into place to keep the show vibrant and fresh.

Back on set



Back on set, this time for a sunglasses advert.
Can't say it was the most exciting day of my life but made a nice change from touring.

GBOA T&C 30 years


30 years ago today, my life took a big swerve in a new direction when I found myself doing projections for Gaye Bykers On Acid at the T&C.
A few weeks later I was away on tour with them as their lighting/visuals guy. Halfway through the tour I was joined in the VW campervan by a very young Ben Sullivan. Things were never going to be the same again.

What The Floyd - Skipton


Last show of the WTF tour in a cattle market in Skipton...
It's been nice coming back to stage lighting and nudging the show into shape.
Sad to say goodbye to the band, who are my new imaginary friends.
I didn't know cow foot trimming was a thing....
