White Star Liners on Vimeo

White Star Liners an up and coming indie band from the Brighton area of Sussex in the UK, and good friends of ours, have set up a Vimeo account and have uploaded a load of recent gig footage that I cut together for them, so check out their channel;

I've also embedded one of my favourite songs from their album "The Rural Electrification" below.

Adventure Men - FIRST EPISODE

The first Adventure Men episode is now online, with Episode 2 to follow sometime this coming week.

The first adventure sees Ross & Simon investigate the possible haunting of The Fitzwalter Arms in Goodnestone, Kent. The adventure spans two episodes, with this first one covering their arrival and daytime walkround. As to be expected their ineptitude shines through, but Ross remains adamant and hopeful of finding proof of the existence of ghosties.

Also available in HD on YouTube and Vimeo, and you can subscribe to Adventure Men in iTunes.

Touching the Dyke goes Vimeo

In the ever ongoing exploration of where the best place to host your video is, we've uploaded all five episodes of Touching the Dyke to our new Vimeo profile, giving it a whole channel all to itself!!

I have to say, I do like the Vimeo interface, I've had a profile on there for a while, but not really explored it, the TtD channel looks pretty snazzy if I do say so myself!

White Star Liners - Tyre Pressure Was The Least Of His Worries (Live)

Helped out some friends of mine by cutting together some recent gig footage for them, taken from a couple of camcorders (one 16:9, one 4:3, yay, both auto-exposing, double yay), I synced and cut together the two angles, applying a little re-framing (or a lot on the 4:3 stuff), and the odd bit of motion, as well as a bit of a grade (within FCP) to take the edge off the DV footage and some of the blown out areas.

I've got the rest of the gig sat on the work drive as I work on building videos for each song for them, so they could well upload some more at some point.

For those of you in the Liverpool area, they're playing The Cavern, this weekend (23/24 May), check out their website for more details White Star Liners (

Touching the Dyke - FIRST SCREENING!

Touching the Dyke has been causing quite a stir online, which led us to create a single 12min cut, abridging the five released episodes, for showing at film nights and festivals around the world and know universe.


Originally released as a five part web mini-series during the run up to Red Nose Day in March 2009, Touching the Dyke chronicles Ross and Simon’s epic climb to the summit of Devil’s Dyke near Brighton in the deepest South of England. To date the webisodes have garnered over 2000 views between them and, thanks to their valiant efforts, Ross and Simon have raised over £400 for Comic Relief. Now this revised cut abridges their harrowing, yet uplifting, journey for festival audiences.

The first screening we've had confirmed...the WORLD PREMIER if you will, will be at the "Odder's Mini Cine Picture Show" which takes place at Bar Odder in Manchester on April 19th 2009 8pm - Late!!

For more information, check out their MySpace page at

The 'festival cut' is officially branded as a co-production of Lookout Film & Digital and Daizree Media Creations
