Burning Desire // #MOOE @olancollardy x @mejialabi
Feeling all nostalgic after watching this. To be honest, I didn’t know it was gonna come out this good. I think the score added to it’s appeal. Probably my best colouring/grading till date! I wanna shoot a part 2!!!! Beauty In The Wild!!!
I’m under-utilizing my camera and lensbaby - this is magical!
A brilliantly shot short documentary about a woman’s journey to finding her dream. Execution is so clean and follows the narrative exceptionally well. Too many superlatives in my description :/
The Colour, Black (a short film)
“…Black was a deep noise from within”
A piece in support of the campaign to eradicate violence against women.

Anonymous asked: Yo bro i'm an avid admirer of your work and see you have a strong passion for the visual arts. i would just like to know if you knew how to do this effect? (2 chainz - crack video) it happens through out the video and notably at 25 seconds, 36 seconds 39 seconds etc Thanks for taking your time to read this
It’s similar to what is done in the “360 degree shot” in the matrix. It’s done using multiple cameras simultaneously. In the 2Chainz vid, looks like 2-3 cameras maybe

I miss these days of my filmmaking when all I had was a holdall with a mk2 and 3 lens. One this particular shoot, it was the first time I was using my 135L (the performance shot).
If asked what my best work is till date, this wouldn’t be in the top three, but I bet if you asked people the same question, this will be in the top three. Why? It’s the content.
Moral of the story is… cinematography is BS, lighting is BS, sound is BS… what matters is the story. If you have good content, you are #winning
