Arundel – The Boat Song: Music Video

A dark, hot room filled with smoke and lasers. Who doesn’t want that in their life? Lighting is all controlled via my audio-reactive lighting system, each light pulse is directly controlled by the sound of the instruments and vocals.

Little Odessa – All Night: Music Video

I’m fascinated by timelapse, and I’ve wanted to shoot someone sleeping for ages. Not in a creepy way, you understand. It’s just that slow-motion and timelapse videos reveal stuff we don’t usually get to see as humans shackled to linear time. As a VJ I do a lot of thinking about different ways of using projection. I’ve used projection mapping in the past on buildings and inanimate objects. So sleeping dudes seemed like a completely obvious next step.

It was surprising how little convincing was required to get Little Odessa on board with the concept. My pitch was “All four of you, asleep in a bed together, with a projector blaring in your eyes. It’s likely to be the worst night’s sleep of your entire life.” They were instantly, unanimously in favour of the idea.

Little Scout – March Over To Me: Music Video

After designing and 3D-printing modifications to convert our 3-axis camBLOCK motion control system into a monster 5-axis crane rig, I needed a project to test out the system. Fortunately my buddies Little Scout were about to release their new single, and the aesthetic perfectly fit the multi-pass, audio-reactive ideas in my head.

Motion control gave me some delightfully crane-y multi-pass camera moves, and audio reactive lighting made the band members magically appear only when their instruments made noise.

This clip won Gold in the Music Videos category at the Australian Cinematography Society’s 2013 Queensland awards.

7bit Hero – Come On. Stand Out: Music Video

I’m the visualist/networking/game-master member of bitpop band 7bit Hero. When introducing our weird hybrid gaming/live music project to people, we had trouble explaining how it all works. The band actually wants people to be messing with their phones at our shows?

Perhaps a music video might get the concept across, with BEEEEZ!!!

Tara Simmons – Weekend of Hearts: Music Video

The first public use of the audio-reactive lighting system I developed for Ableton Live. The lighting of this clip was controlled entirely via the sounds of the music. The individual audio “stems” – vocals, synths, kick drum, snare etc. – were routed to different lighting channels to create a perfectly synced yet organic looking lighting show.

Cowper – The Kite Song and Capulet – Live at The Edge

Cowper played at The Edge‘s first Show Pony showcase event. As a Catalyst at The Edge, I was responsible for tech setup and mixing live video, as well as VJing other artists on the night, alongside my weapon of choice: Cowper.

With a couple of capable camera assistants, I was able to put together edits of two songs from the Cowper set:

Audio from this set is available for (free) download.

Sampology – Super Visual Smackdown Intro Video

With Sampology set to take over the audiovisual world with his Super Visual Smackdown, he needed a design refresh to show people what was coming.

Sam is pretty new to the video world, so he asked for some post-production services to give his set intro that extra bit of polish.

I animated titles, stabilized hand-shot footage, tightened the edit, and colour-corrected the clips Sam had brought together from throughout film history.
