Becky CJ - Falling Slowly
For fans of the musical Once, and for people who are new to me and wondering what I do besides Behind The Scenes. The large body of my work goes to filming and editing musicians performing originals and cover songs, or making music videos.
In this video, Becky CJ and her father Steve, perform an impromptu cover of Falling Slowly (we’ve had it stuck in our heads for a while). We’d already set the equipment up to film something else, so this is quite literally a natural and unplanned piece of improv.

Growing up, I absolutely adored Nizlopi. I wasn’t a mega fan by any means but the one song of theirs that I knew, The JCB Song, was just brilliant to me. It spoke of so much - the excitement of imagination, the requirement of escapism, the coping mechanisms of dealing with bullying and good parenting in the face of struggles.
Somehow, I am now friends with them and able to come along to their shows on a moments notice and capture emotional moments of their reunion such as this, stepping into the crowd to perform Drop Your Guard, as the audience acts like they never left. I had chills filming it. I hope you enjoy this, and if so, why not share it with someone.
The last couple of days I’ve been hosting these wonderful people, and spending lots of time with the others. Time in The Arena was fun, I drank a whole bunch and laughed a lot more.
Meet Robert Gillies - if you’re near any of these places, go see him live, he’s pretty good.

July 5th - Tobermory, Tobermory Scout Hall 7:30pm

Possibly the first video I’ve appeared in with Bing, we’ve had a musical guest staying at the house of MidTea, and he’s touring the UK at the moment. Check him out!

The Leave a Lasting Mark Series: Rock Songs of 93
The person in the last photograph is a man called Sam Teichman, who regularly runs marathons and fundraisers alike. Several years ago (October 2010), I shot the very first LaLM, which was themed on Born To Run. The purpose of the first one was to raise more funds to sponsor his marathon running. It consisted of lots of musicians performing Springsteen’s great hits over two hours and twenty performers, raised about $1500+ and the profile of a lot of the people involved. Fans got to hear new bands, everyone got to meet new people and the atmosphere was perfect.
It hadn’t been planned to be as regular a reoccurrence as it has since become (thought to be a yearly thing, it is more often every two months) and a whole bunch of money has been raised for various charities since then. Some of my favourite songs of 93 from last night’s show included Creep by Radiohead (sung by Dave Pittenger, pictured second to last) and the very last group song I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers (led by Freedom Bremner, sung by everyone).

Leddra Chapman - All About You (Official Video)
In January, I went out with Leddra to a few of the dates of her sold out tour and filmed bits and pieces. We finished the video last night and it is currently BBC Radio 2’s Record of the Week. It’s a great song, and I hope you enjoy the video which features lots of fans and silliness along the way.
Filmed and edited by MidTea

Mikill Pane - I Can Feel It
I collaborated with Murray on this video from Mikill Pane’s EP Launch. The live footage is a mixture of three videographers, and then painstakingly edited by Murray. I’m quite chuffed with how it all came out.
