Title: Doreen at Open City Docs Fest
Client: King Chain Productions

We're excited that a short side-project from the forthcoming 'Janet and Larry Move Out' has been shortlisted and will screen at the Open City Docs Fest as part of the MyStreet screening.

Despite Elephant and Castle's Heygate Estate having a notorious reputation in the press, the residents we spoke with spoke fondly of their lives on the estate and the surrounding community. Doreen encapsulates these feelings and questions the rational and reasons behind the regeneration project.

The film can be viewed here or if you would like to come along to the event on 23rd June at 4.15pm check out the Open City Docs Fest website.

Title: The Lost Sound update and the Thai floods
Client: King Chain Productions

The KCP trip to Thailand to begin work on feature doc The Lost Sound has been postponed because of the floods in Thailand. Indeed many of the film's participants have been directly affected including the good Captain who's house is under water. He's staying with his daughter in Cheing Mai and was very sad to leave his instruments behind. Hundred's of thousands of people have been displaced by the floods, have lost their livelihoods, and are living in makeshift camps. There is an immediate need for support, and a longer term need to help rebuild their lives. The Thai Red Cross are working hard to help people, as well as NGOs such as ActionAid. You can support their work through these links:

Client: KCP

Thanks to Luciane Pisani for designing this clear and straightforward website, and for Andy at Jealous Designs who implemented it within Wordpress. Finally a chance to collate some of my freelance work, and hopefully a launchpad for future films. This website has been a long time in my thoughts...
