I was up at the Sheffield Doc Fest at the weekend, third year on the trot picking up the latest films and meeting colleagues in the documentary world. Amongst the highlights were see Walter Murch (editor of The English Patient, Godfather sereis etc) talking about his career and how he organises his edits (see slightly geeky shots above of his Post its notes shots) He was a remarkably down to earth guy - but then that shows in his films which have a real benefit from this side of his character. He has just worked on the edit for the new film Particle Fever - which is going to be amazing! (link below)

Also watched some brilliant films - two being about sports people; a snowboarder recovering from head injuries in Crash Reel and how his (very functioning) family helped save him. And the Bradley Wiggins doco - pretty good too! The two films were commissioned by Sky Atlantic. Im feeling a proposal coming on…

Good to see an old job still going strong on a clients website! This one was of the Goodwood Festival for Investec - the cars were great, hopefully the video really captures the mood!

Just came across the new Bowie single video - love it!!!

I am genuinely thinking of investing in some new cine lenses, so naturally took an interest in this video, but perhaps this isn’t the best way of doing a lens test!
