BBC Two Ident

BBC Two Idents have always been a bit of an institution, so I’m very pleased to have finally directed my own one!

This Ident will go out before BBC Two Food Programming, and the whole idea was to get all the BBC Two chefs on screen within a 7 sec window. Relax and imagine a continuity voiceover speaking over the top…

Sons of Atom

This is my new short film. It’s been around the world doing festivals so now it can finally can go online.

Despite being born in the 80s, I’ve been having nightmares about nuclear apocalypse for as long as I can remember. So it’s a very personal film, but I hope you like it too.

Learn more about it here.

I’ve Written A Feature Film

I figured someone might be wondering what I’ve actually been up to in the non-promo world.

Well, I’ve written a first draft of a 120 page screenplay. And I’m quite happy with it.

Still developing the script but also looking for producers, funding, time. OK bye.

Crime and Punishment Season

The documentaries in BBC Three’s Crime and Punishment Season are really good, especially Life and Death Row and Teen Killers: Life Without Parole. I cried during some of them.

Here’s the promo I directed to launch the season. Practically all credit goes to Laurence Honderick, who designed and animated everything.

Radio 2 In Concert

I directed this little film to promote Radio 2’s “In Concert” strand. It’s kinda sweet.

Fun Fact: The BBC will keep using this over the year to promote all the different artists that perform – this meant that the trailer had to be quite flexible, and will have different music each time. OK that wasn’t such a fun fact.

A few more BBC things

BBC Parliament Select Committees

The BBC’s coverage of the Parliament Select Committees is a good and important service. They wanted me to promote it in such a way that people wouldn’t think it incredibly dull.

Originally the music was a lot more scary, but the Beeb wouldn’t let me.

Doctor Who 50th

For his 50th Anniversary I thought it’d be fun to make The Doctor pop into the BBC One Idents, as if he was broadcasting through some relativistic time effects. That guy!

Was fun to work in the TARDIS with Matt Smith et al.

Director Roster

And lastly, I’m now part of Red Bee Creative’s official Director Roster. Guess I sold out.

iPlayer Live, with Mark Watson

I wrote and directed this trailer to promote iPlayer Live. It was the height of the British Summer, honest.

Voiceover from comedian Mark Watson.
