5 Second Film: The Box

A film parody, like the Voiceover Arist videos we made, this was a quick way to play with the running time of 5 seconds without having to pick up a camera.

Shooting in Sunset

A couple of months ago, I shot some sketches with my fellow Half a Giraffers. We got some spectacular light, which you will be seeing in the sketches when they go up. Here are a couple of teasers from that day.

New Half a Giraffe Sketch

This is a wee B-Side we made recently, featuring the naturally hilarious @twistedlilkitty! We wrote, workshopped, shot, edited and uploaded it in about four hours.

Oh! Rolling Hills of Cork!

I hit up Cork with Nathalie last weekend and caught some of the sights and sounds of a city in Ireland that isn’t Dublin (I know, I didn’t believe it either, but Wikipedia confirmed it). Look! Cows! We also found time to go to the English Market – where they sold macaroons. Macaroons! MACAFUCKAROONS! And cheese. […]

The Dizzy Olympics

If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Google Buzz, Google Plus or even just around in real life, I’m sure you will have already been exposed to my pimping this: I’d like to take a moment to talk about the effects. This was actually quite a simple job. First, I tracked a couple of seconds […]

Timelapse

I shot this yesterday as a wee experiment. Camera was Canon EOS 5D Mk. II, I don’t have an intervalometer, so I used the packaged EOS Utility software and left it tethered to my laptop.

Exit Poll

As part of Half a Giraffe, we use my camera more often than not to shoot the sketches and ideas we come up with. I snapped this through the lens as the director walked our cast through the scene in a rehearsal for our sketch Exit Poll.

Green Screen

I did some work a little while ago with the good people of ClipGurus. I hadn’t done greenscreen work before, so it was as interesting experience.

Snowpocalypse

There were so many snowpocalypses the last 20 months or so in Ireland, it’s hard to remember which one this was. I didn’t have my camera long when I shot this. The snow had just fallen and I wanted to try to capture it. I loved how manic the dog was, she was so exultant […]

Film

These old shots are from the VERY brief period in which I shot on film. A couple of shots taken at my local park. A few shots from a very atmospheric shoot in the basement of Kilmainham Gaol for a film that was called Possession at the time. It was later retitled Christian Blake. I […]

Winter Wonderland

All of the snow last year and this year was so surreal, so alien to everything I’d known, that I felt I needed to capture it.
