Heres the new key image for all things Rollin' Empire.
A few months ago I met with Rollin' Empire to come up with some ideas for a music video to their new single 'Nothing to Lose'. Having done mostly performance based videos before we wanted to do something a little bigger and also something with a sense of humour.
The idea was to put the band front and centre with new identities in an 1980's tv show version of their song. A lo-fi heist story with Rollin' Empire playing a dodgy version of the A-Team, filled with lots of nods and references to 80's and early 90's TV and movies.
There are a few changes of costumes throughout mainly within the first 30 seconds or so to give the impression of previous episodes in the title sequence.
I made the robot the same way all Hollywood movie robots are built these days, by using a miniature skateboard, two basins and some cardboard.
For all the little references throughout these title sequences (and Scarface montage) pretty much set the tone, a mixture of slapstick and deadly importance.
...and the final video... until the sequel.
A spec music video I made for New Order's latest single 'People On The High Line' that uses a lot of fruit and veg and means exactly what you think it means. Pure filth.
Tickets for the Locus of Control premiere at Indie Cork on Oct 12th are now available here.
"Locus of Control is a clever and insightful dark comedy that centres on Andrew Egan, a struggling stand-up comedian. A Kafkaesque tale of ego and insecurity where Andrew is stuck repeating the same pattern of mistakes over and over.
This is a bright and intriguing debut feature, from an exciting filmmaker who seamlessly blends a nightmare landscape with contemporary issues. Brooding dreams are dashed to make way for tomorrow." - IndieCork
Delighted to be part of this years IndieCork for the first screening of Locus of Control. The screening date will announced next week but until then heres the teaser.
Last year I made my first feature film - Locus of Control. I got the chance to work with some incredibly talented people over a short amount of time and couldn't be more grateful for all their hard work. Its great to have the film finished and ready to screen with dates to be announced soon.
Watch the first teaser trailer below.

Some screen grabs from a recent shoot. The final piece will be online soon.
Last November, John Morton directed the pilot of his comedy/drama Smitten and I was lucky enough to shoot the episode. We spent five days wandering the streets of Kilkenny with a great cast and now the entire episode is on the RTE Player as part of this years Storyland.
Take a look.
That's a wrap.

Heres the video I made for Rollin' Empire's new single 'Its Coming For You and I'. This was a pretty quick turnaround, about 20 hours from the start of the shoot to finishing the edit. Enjoy.
Some screengrabs from a video I made recently.
A video I made with Anthony Barry, Wayne Farry and James Feely for Original Source shower gel is now online as part of campaign to advertise their new bottle design.
We also made another video that they decided not to use but it makes me laugh so here it is.
