  5. Electric Coffee Company

    The story of the Electric Coffee Company ( ) in Ealing, London; its refurbishment, its re-opening, its coffee and the importance of community and the individuality of shops and cafes.

    Shot entirely on the Leica M (Type 240) using a Leica 28mm Summicron ASPH, 35mm Summilux ASPH FLE and 50mm Noctilux ASPH, with some shots using a Leica OUFRO macro adapter. Ambient audio recorded on the internal microphone and interview recorded on a Roland R26 using a Rode lavalier microphone. Edited using FCP X. Partially colour graded in "Color" by Neil Patience ( ). Final grading with FCP X and Film Convert. A Manfrotto 561BHDV video monopod was used for all shots apart from the interview, for which a Gitzo video tripod was used. I also used a Lee RF75 filter holder & hood, along with Lee ND filters.

  6. The Cleaner

    The beginnings of another normal and dull day of going to work as a cleaner. On the way, a distraction leads to another distraction at work and the day changes direction.

    A short film shot on the RED One and a Rode NTG-2 mic. RAW footage processed in REDCINE-X. Dual audio recorded on Rode NTG-3 mic and Zoom H4n. The time-lapse scenes were shot on a Canon 5D MkII and edited in Aperture. The film was edited and graded, with audio and titles, all on FCP X.
