….and the winner of that bold claim is….The One I Love, a smart, creative, and honest dark-romantic-comedy (is that a real genre? Well it should be…) starring Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass. I know award season is just around the corner, and we’ll soon be rushing out to see a whole new batch of films in… Read More
Creating this couple’s wedding video was an absolute pleasure! Their love and affection for each other jumps off the screen. So happy that these two wonderful people are now husband wife! xx For more of my wedding videos visit my website or vimeo page.
“What happened to your arm?”“I was walking down the stairs and looking at the stars.”(Amman, Jordan) Have you ever looked at a complete stranger and wondered “what’s their story?” I do. All the time. Luckily Humans of New York is there to satisfy our craving for answers… Brandon Stanton, the photographer and mastermind behind HONY, began taking pictures in 2010 after… Read More
I first learned about Australian musician Chet Faker in reference to his soulful remake of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity.” The original is one of my favourite songs of all time (I knew all the lyrics in 6th grade) and thus the thought of anyone trying to come out with a better rendition seemed as promising as my karaoke performance of… Read More
This wedding had me inspired. The giant light bulb “Love” sign. The waterfront warehouse setting. The funky flower pattern on the inside of the groom’s jacket. I knew instantly what soundtrack I wanted to use for their highlight trailer, a mix of old Hollywood glamour in the form of Duke Ellington with the edginess of 7Horse’s… Read More
Tonight I saw Chef at the Ritzy. Written, directed and starring Jon Favreau, I would classify this film as the ultimate summer feel good movie. It had me leaving the theatre with that warm and fuzzy American feeling that anything is possible, and so despite the predictable bow of an ending, I humbly give it two… Read More
And Voila! The latest highlight trailer from SMOOCH Films, my unique wedding and special event cinematography company. What a beautiful couple to film on a beautiful London day! You might recognise the song from Casse Tête Chinois (“Love is For….” by Kraked Unit Featuring Gary Mudbone Cooper).
There are so many great TV shows out there, but few opening credits have caught my eye like these have. Now, having a snazzy intro isn’t necessarily indicative of a great show, and vice versa. I still cringe watching the uber-cheesy opening of the The Newsroom for example, but thoroughly enjoy the newsroom drama and “let’s… Read More
As a filmmaker, one of my cinematic dreams is to one day direct a perfume commercial, preferably for Chloe as it’s my perfume of choice. I love watching them and I would love directing one, a short storyline of pure sensual indulgence. Sure, it also doesn’t hurt that some of the hottest bodied specimens out… Read More
At the annual LGBT Pride Month celebration reception, President Obama thanks White House pastry chef Bill Yosses – whom he calls the “crust master” – for his delicious pies. Watch this hilarious clip of him theorising why they’re so good, and Michelle’s brilliant reaction to her husband’s crack joke. This is why I love the Obamas.
Today I’ll be flying across the pond to the Big Apple for a week-long visit with friends and family! And to celebrate my arrival, here’s one of my favourite duets from two of the most talented New Yorkers around, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. This fresh, quirky, blue-haired version of the 1937 Babes in Arms show tune was made for Tony’s Duets… Read More
While the name is my current neighbourhood, this sunny apparel and accessories brand actually comes from California, my birth place. They have a women’s section on their website but it’s really all about the guys. Take a look at their retro fabulous swim trunks, particularly the Cactus Plank shorts, and Generator fit in Blue and Red.… Read More
Check out this incredible Save the Date video for Bambo and Janice, shot with a Red Epic and Canon MarkIII by husband and wife team, Chris and Jennifer Mae. They combined the San Francisco couple’s love of Jay Z, The Great Gatsby, surprise parties, and each other to create one incredible visual ride! …literally, there is… Read More
Louis Vuitton ads never fail to get me in the traveling mood. From Angelina Jolie in Cambodia, to Sean Connery in the Bahamas, to the Coppolas in Argentina, their mystical, sun-kissed quality always has me wishing I could pack one of their iconic suitcases and fly off somewhere new. Their latest “Spirit of Travel” campaign… Read More
Queen Bey does it again….and this time she even makes wearing a ski mask look sexy! New fashion trend? Yesterday, Jay Z and Beyonce released a “faux trailer” for their upcoming On The Run tour, which kicks off June 25th in Florida. Directed by Melina Matsoukas, the nearly 4-minute long video, packs some serious star power.… Read More
First-time music video director Natalie Neal captures the song’s french, flirty, and bubble-gum pop vibe with bubbles, keleidoscopes, rosy cheeks, and a stack of pancakes. Fun and provocative.
I could NOT stop laughing when I saw this advert. We’ve all been through it before: having the enormous misfortunate of finding ourselves seated next to a parent as a sex scene unfolds onscreen. Things start getting steamy….flirtatious…and we just pray that slut doesn’t take off her pants while you’re sharing a bowl of popcorn… Read More
