Staring Bill Bailey this project has been in the pipe line at Aardman for a while. I'd like to make it clear that I was certainly not the main editor on this unique and cool project however I did spend a few days editing it towards the end of its construction and that's all the justification I need to put it here! - Enjoy!.....

Asian Food Channel - Great dinners of the world

I've spent the last 18 days on location working around europe on 4 X 25 min offline edits with team of 3 editors for a new series to be aired in December to a reachable audience of 45 Million on the Asian Food Channel. I was primarily responsible for the premiere episode of the series whilst also working across another 3. The documentary follows 4 Chefs as they travel to various locations across the world working together to create great dinners for various VIP guests. The editing demanded quick decisions and writing vo and links on the fly to create the episodes on a tight time scale. More to come when press packs etc are released.....

In the pipe-line....

2011... The year of opportunity? I like to think so, yes. With this in mind there's some interesting stuff coming up soon. Interesting, varied, technical and creative. The best of all worlds you could say.

I'm about to embark on a 3D project to be rolled out on a Nationwide scale. To be safe I'd best not reveal the name at the moment but they are a major manufacturer so I'm looking forward to embarking on 3D. Recent tests have proved fruitful and with thanks to some contacts in the industry most of all Jon from Hurricane media I'm looking forward to this one. Video should hopefully be up in a few weeks.

There is also another major project in the pipe-line but I really can't say anything on it at the moment other than its a biggie and something that could be really special! More to come when its A- confirmed and B - Legal to say!

Where's all the work examples then?

A funny couple of months! All though there's been plenty happening a lot of it has been going through various sign-off process or awaiting broadcast and for one reason or another I haven't been able put recent examples up. While awaiting being able to do this here's a few projects that I've been involved in.

Aardman Digital 2011 Showreel

Here's the latest Reel I did for Aardman's Digital department. All screen captures, key framed animation and edits done by myself.

Cadbury's Spots Vs Stripes.

A recent job was for Team Rubber and Fallon creating a series of videos focusing on winning unconventional world records.
All though edited in a home/rough style creating the pieces was technically challenging due to the amount of footage vs output and the amount of pre-edit work involved i.e syncing cameras sound etc. A great fun project to work on however, so here's a couple of outputs:

Good old Terry Turbo:

Your World of invention

If you've had a look at this blog before you will have seen a few pieces on the "secret project" that I've been working on....
Well, I can now proudly reveal that it is the entire DVD extras for Wallace & Gromit's world of invention released earlier in December.

The 6 pieces, running at around 7 mins each have been written, developed, filmed, directed & edited by myself and partner in crime Ricky Martin for the BBC and Aardman animations under the project title "Your world of invention".

The pieces are a fun look at taking ideas from the show and making them at home in an applicable way. Presented by Ricky the pieces are a fun way of getting the family involved in a good old build!

Films in the DVD extras are:

Upside-down-o-scope, Wind-Powered sprinkler, Atmospheric railway, Fin Ray Grabber, Spy camera & Air Rocket.

Here's a montage I put together of some screen shots and some behind the scenes, click the image to see it bigger:
