Well it certainly has been an exciting few months recently with lots going on. I have had several Showreel re-edits and i'd like to welcome the wonderful and very talented Amrit Maghera onto my books as a new client.
I am also happy to announce the addition of another new client which is "The Royal Society of Arts" with whom I will be helping to edit and piece together shortened versions of their lectures. Be sure to check out their youtube channel for all the latest lectures as there are some very interesting speakers and subjects being talked about and added bonus you may come across one of my edits.
Finally i am very excited to announce I am working on two new short films with the aim of both being turned into feature films. The first short film is called "Turtle Eggs" and is a new British gangster trainspottingesque film following how a man is sent spiriling out of control because of being involved in the drugs world. This is the first time Erroll Thomas has directed a film and if all goes well hopefully he'll be directing the feature version which I would also be the editor on.
The second short film is called "Dress Rehearsal" and me and my brother Samuel Clemens have co-directed this wonderful and fun short. "Dress Rehearsal" is a story about lost love and missed opportunities. An operatic troupe is performing at a local fringe venue, where relationships between the fellow performers are rife with competition and jealousy. A homeless man is struggling to survive on the harsh London streets. Both worlds end up colliding revealing love, pain and redemption.
I must say filming "Dress Rehearsal" have been some of the best days of my life we are extremely lucky to have built a wonderful team of people to help us put this together and the footage is looking wonderful thanks to our very talented DOP Fernando Ruiz. I would also like to thank our Steadicam Operator Rupert Peddle who was essential to getting this film made, every film set needs a Rupert. Finally I must thank Barney Powell who as 1st AD managed not only to keep the film moving forward but also kept the film shoot fun.
I am now going through all the RED Epic footage and beginning the editing process. I'm very excited to piece this film together as it provides me with an entirely new challenge editing together musical elements which I have never done before. I will keep you updated as to the progress of this short and wish me luck with the edit.
