Diwali - 2018

EMF back in the square for the Diwali Festival. I sat this one out, but that's my imagination up there on the column...

What The Floyd - Narbeth

Bizarre moment when one of the audience came over at the end of the show to tell me he was one of the people in the 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' video ( the goatee guy).  He had been a model years ago and had never seen the footage before, so he was a bit freaked out when he spotted himself in the show..
Rock N Roll.

BAFTA - Without You

Back on the film set doing projections for a short ad for BAFTA.
One projector onto a wall - what could possibly go wrong?
Well, this was one of the toughest gigs in a long long time. The projector failed, the spare failed, the replacement failed and the spare replacement failed too.
I got it all working in the end, but I think my few remaining dark hairs are now a lighter shade of grey.

Sunderland Illuminations

Another stonking projection for EMF, this time in Sunderland.
If only I could bottle and sell the relief I felt when it all worked.........

The Sundering Sea

Lining a dome up with Resolume for a change.
It would have been a whole lot easier if I had some step ladders... oh hum.

We Love Bo

Have to admit, one of the coolest things I ever shot was Bo Tsui locking away in a nightclub on Swallow Street in the west end with Nick Rhodes. The footage was originally intended for Duran's Nite Runner but was only used on two shows before the whole RCM project evaporated.
Since then she has been a regular feature on my live work and sure does get the crowd going.
I bumped into Bo in a bar once a few years later and when she recognised me she jumped up and started dancing.. x

Orb Prep

The first of two long weekends of UK shows with The Orb and System 7, plus a mid-week installation for The Sunderland Illuminations in between, and then straight out onto more shows with What The Floyd.
Oh my.
