Myself and Mike from Solent Sky Services created a teaser film to build up hype for Portsmouth brewery Staggeringly Good Beer’s crowdfunder campaign: an 80s-tinged synthwave-backed video featuring a drivable dinosaur which pulls a pint.
I was in Monterrey, México visiting my girlfriend Kassie when African Women’s Forum in Portsmouth got in contact for logo/print/web work for their events celebrating the legacy and values of the revolutionary political leader on his birth centenary.
While in México City in May 2018, Kass and I spent a day with graffiti/street/tattoo artist Buster and visited his space at Lettering Malandro — ‘malandro’ fittingly being slang for the non-conforming youth. Buster’s style is all about intricately-detailed typography.
In July 2018, I spent a couple of weeks back‘n’forthin’ between my south coast home island of Portsmouth and the prestigious university city that is Oxford, shooting the build-up to BBC Countryfile Live with drone media company Solent Sky Services for their client: materials provider AVS Fencing Supplies. Solent Sky Services founder Mike hit me up about the job and asked for my assistance on the aerial camera operations, film editing, social media, and copywriting aspects of the project.
Your Instagram feed — don’t just post a photo, then another, then another. Approach it like that and it becomes a mess. Train yourself to not just think in individual photos, but in sets of three or nine.
