Polo By The Sea for McLaren.

A social production for McLaren Gold Coast. We filmed the horses on a full-frame 100-400m Canon zoom lens, strapped to speed booster on a Panasonic GH5, rolling at 60 frames-per-second. The smaller microsensor gave us plenty more zoom. One of the problems I’ve always have in shooting outdoor events is the dirt and dust, and […]

Shane Colquhoun – Working The Production Triangle

This is on of my favourite shots of a working Principal, at the top of his game, filmed in 8K on the RED Epic W, on a Canon 35mm cinema prime lens. The interview was just as good, as Shane looked back on his career. We both arrived on the Gold Coast around the same […]

The Fish Rots From The Head Down

A Fish Rots From….the Head Down.* Another leadership adage may be ‘lead by example’. Or, don’t ask others to do stuff you aren’t prepared, can’t, won’t or don’t know how to do yourself. Which brings me to the hot new business in town – outsourcing your social media, while the boss flies first class. Hello? […]

Branded Content in Full Flight

You may have heard the term ‘branded content’. Simply, it is serving something up to the general public that isn’t driven by sales #ullshit. We can all tell ‘the sell’. Branded content gives you a laugh, just for the hell of it. It informs or entertains you. It is brought to you by a ‘brand’ […]
