Airbus Helicopters EC135 – Sydney Harbour: Corporate Video

I’ve been collaborating with Industrial Arc Photography for a number of years, and one of our favourite clients to work with is Airbus Australia. Perhaps it’s because they’re super lovely, professional people. Maybe it’s the incredible toys.

Airbus brought their updated EC145 helicopter for a tour around Australia, and wanted some “Australian” looking footage to show the world. Enter the Sydney Harbour, Opera House, and a little Surf Life Saving for good measure.

I shot aerial footage from another helicopter, hanging out the passenger door with my DJI Ronin gimbal, while 2nd shooter Liam spent the afternoon on a super-yacht sailing around Sydney Harbour. Tough gig.

WAAX – I For An Eye: Music Video

Following up WAAX’s Wisdom Teeth video, we needed a clip which would deliver their fresh new lineup to the world, while giving plenty of focus to Marie’s ferocious presence.

My Own Pet Radio – No Great Mystery: Music Video

After having a lovely time working together on visuals for Ball Park Music, Sam Cromack asked me to help him create a world for the debut single from his solo project, My Own Pet Radio.

Combining 3D printed characters, robotic controlled animation and a twee black and white aesthetic, this shoot was just as much fun as you’d expect.

Tim Shiel and Queensland Symphony Orchestra – Duet Live: Performance

Tim Shiel composed the award-winning soundtrack to mobile application Duet, a mesmerising, minimalist, and wonderfully difficult game.

Brisbane orchestral composer Ryan Walsh found himself thoroughly addicted to Duet and decided that he’d make things much worse by arranging the soundtrack for a 16 piece orchestra.

Tim asked if I’d be interested in putting together live visuals for the show. We met up in Melbourne, planned out the storyline of the set and how we’d translate the 2D, minimalist visuals of the game into something immersive.

Then I spent a couple of weeks building 3D versions of the game, and making those simple rotating Red/Blue balls into an epic journey through space, building weird mechanical cityscapes and crashing suns into planets.

For the show I did live visuals and also programmed lights via Ableton Live, creating a rather special, immersive 45 minute experience. It was performed for a rapt audience on 15th May, 2015. Here’s a 15-minute section from the middle of the show, with my visuals overlaid in some sections to get a proper feel for the animation style:

Ball Park Music – Groovin The Moo Tour 2015: Live Show Visuals

I got together with Ball Park Music’s Sam Cromack to put together live visuals for their 2015 run of Groovin The Moo shows. Ranging from infinitely scrolling backdrops taken from album cover collages, to disembodied 3D scans of the band members’ heads shooting eye lasers.

Oh, and dancing models of the band with the then Australian Prime Minister, in speedos, up a pole. You’re welcome.

7bit Hero – Burn Your Bits feat. Sun Mum

A rare appearance on the “wrong” side of the lens, my band 7bit Hero featured in a Queensland Government Health sun safety campaign.

Alongside the music video, we also appeared in PSA skits with Sun Mum. This campaign won several 2015 Brisbane Advertising and Design awards, including Best Jingle. Wow.

WAAX – Wisdom Teeth: Music Video

WAAX are a band of punk-as-rock, hectic kids. Their track “Wisdom Teeth” had been creeping up on Triple J and Unearthed for a couple of months, and needed a quick clip that would match the intensity of their sound and live presence.

Violent Soho – Fur Eyes: Music Video

The third Graetzmedia music video for Violent Soho. Trying to keep their quintessentially Australian Suburbs image intact, while throwing some technological head-trip curve balls at their THC-addled fans.

We spent a lovely day in an excellent, naturally art-directed Queenslander house, running the robot back and forth endlessly. It went Rather Well Indeed.
