We did a music video for Jurojin, and it will be broadcast on MTV and Kerrang – so look out for it! We are really pleased with how it came out, its great fun working with the band, they’re really talented and hopefully 2011 will be a big year for them! Shot on Canon 7D and 550D in a music studio in London Bridge. Get in touch if you are a band needing a vid and we’ll see if we can do you a deal!

This is not a film about religion, but it a film about people with faith. A faith so strong that it is difficult to take it seriously, a faith so unfashionable that it is gently mocked by our broadcast media, and a faith derided by scientists. It is a film about the last core group of Church of Wales attendees in the ex-mining, post industrial town of Llanelli, near Swansea in South Wales. In the summer we heard that the Church of Wales found themselves in depressing need of closing down five of the eight town churches in Llanelli. Churches who had insufficient congregation, with broken roofs and woodworm in the pews. But these churches still had loyal attendees, women mainly, who had attended the church their whole lives, who scrubbed the church, and embroidered the altar cloths and polished the chalices, who didn’t want to give up their buildings. But with true British fatalism had come to understand the necessity of allowing the authorities to close down buildings that had seen their baptisms, confirmations, weddings, their children’s baptisms and their husbands’ funerals. What has gone wrong with our national religion? Why do I feel the need to apologise for making a film about religion. Why is God so uncool?
It is an ongoing project, and the film here is the first installment. It is definitely a story that revolves around women. The rector is Sian Jones, an enthusiastic, happy, glorious lady who I tower over, she has responsibility for guiding her small flock out of these broken buildings into an uncertain future. Her plan, is that with the consolidation of resources it will be possible to open a new parish church, in an existing and stunning mediaeval building which will breathe new life into anglicanism in Llanelli. But will she be able to carry her pensioner congregation with her?
So far we have filmed over two long weekends with the people of Llanelli. The first filming days are included in this film, our next visit, when we filmed the closure of St Albans church is still to be cut. We will go back, if they’ll have us, in early Feb to see what has happened next to the buildings and the people of the church.
Please watch the film, and if you want to be kept up to date with our progress or have questions or suggestions then do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
A little word of warning as we enter the Christmas season, don’t overindulge! But if you do, then spare a thought for the service that works throughout central London – The Booze Bus. A dedicated minibus ambulance that collects the unconscious, and drunk revellers from London’s streets. We filmed with them in the summer, but we’re sure they are hard at work now.
Thanks to London Ambulance and the crew of London’s Booze Bus, both for letting us film and for the work they do!

We were really lucky to meet NaturalMotion the computer games designers responsible for the Euphoria engine that powers such games as GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption as well as their first title BackBreaker. The Euphoria engine does not rely on canned animation techniques but is a series of rules that teaches the animation how to comply with the laws of physics. When you see it in action, which you will if you’ve played Red Dead Redemption, you’ll know this means that the gameplay feels real, the characters can surprise you and move like humans.
Matt, Chris and CEO Torsten Reil talk us through the importance of physics in creating realistic game worlds and enhancing the games playing experience. Torsten Reil started the company following some academic research into the bio-mechanically accurate modelling of animals. When we first approached Torsten to take part in this film, his motivation for saying yes was that he was fed up with young graduates applying to his company for jobs with the wrong qualifications. To work in the gaming world you need a degree in maths or physics.
Matt and Chris show us the power of their physics engine, and to prove how effective it is, they switch off some aspects of the physics world to see what its like if the gravity doesn’t work. We see first hand the hilarious results when you adjust the laws of physics.
This film has animation created in-house explaining the physics of forces and motion.
Filmed on Canon 7D & 550D with Sigma 30mm, Tokina 11-16mm, Canon 18-135mm.
