Spatialised Instrument – Misha Smith

I was employed by Fulcrum TV to make a short video about Misha Smith’s Music Machine, also refered to as Spatialised Instrument as part of a pitch to the BBC in the hope of securing a commission to make a documentary about him and his wonderful construction. The film was made over a period of weeks and is one of the more involved kinds of video I make. Misha’s project is a flexible, sonic architectural series of structures that explores and questions the relationships between instrument, player, composer, audience and location. It is a musical instrument, an event, an installation and a sonic landscape. It is currently installed at The Centre For Creative Collaboration (C4CC)

British Council – Spoof

In order to make what became the video “What has the British Council Ever Done For Me”  a film made  for Counterpoint who are the cultural relations thinktank of the British Council I decided to first  ‘sketch’ out my idea.  I therefore played all the character types I wanted to have in  the final video,  just to give me some kind of idea as to how it might look. It was such a success that I decided it was worthy of showing it in its own right.  Both films were shown at the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA), London, UK.

Stabby Man

You may not know but I not only do I make video but I also work as an Artist and just one of the items I have made is Stabby Man.  Stabby Man is a very silly felt fabric man I made and sell on that site. You can stab Stabby Man in the underpants and his eyes will light up. Heart Man on the other hand is much sweeter, to get his eyes to light up all you need to do is squeeze his hand.
