Harold Pinter RIP

"I never think of myself as wise. I think of myself as possessing a critical intelligence which I intend to allow to operate."

Some sex offender was at the Academy xmas party doing drawings of people.

This is me and Corin Hardy through his twisted mind.

Blog on mate aside from shameless self promotion, I started this blog as a forum to post loads of old (mostly scrappy) skate footage that I have kicking around.

Finally, I get around to scraping it together and here is a cutting floor sweep up of the Manchild (before the hair, skinnys and vulcanised shoes) to kick it all off.

oh yeah, whilst going through the archives, 2001's First Broadcast is available for ipod biznizz...

Props to Blueprint for this one...

Wish I used my Holga more

because its a rad little camera piece.

Here are some bad photos to show how good it is:


Charity job we did for Amnesty International.

Another Kim Gehrig number.

No funny stories on this one except the gayness of the unnofficial Grip union aka 'the Gripvine' (see what they did there? Genius.) that send warninsg around via text to all Grips, urging them not to help us out even though it was a charity job.

I kid you not. 

Who would have thought that such a burly bunch of chaps could be such little bitches?

Duvet Suits

Yes, this is for real:

I want one

Crew dem...

Gonna be a banger... lip dubb'll see...

Gives me the Wileys

I spent my saturday wearing a suit in an office. (I actually wore two kinds of suit that day, but won't go into details about that)

...but then again, so did Ben Moulden.

What could possibly be going on?

Sian Alice Group 'The Dusk Line'

Guess this is a bit old now... well a few months anyways.

Basically, I have to deal with all kinds of nause; trying to find Kanye West and his entourage somewhere to go clubbing on a monday night in the middle of berlin smack bang in the middle of trance town, being sent to coax Wiley out of his trailer and convince him that dancing foxes wont make him look soft, driving for hours to find Fergies gang the right kind of chocolate etc etc...

So, when I get the chance to produce something like this, its a total godsend. Great band, great song, directed and shot by two of my best friends on an old modified tube camera from the 60's. Good times.

Check the links out to the side... get Sian Alice Group in your life. They're epic.

Here are some photos of some goofs mucking about and making a film. How it should be.

Phone clips

I'm going to get rid of my blower so thought I'd clear it out. I found these clips. Two of them are funny and one is very, very serious.

Happy Birthday Stuart and Seth...

...but enough about those ballbags, lets get back to me, me, me...

Popped by Slam on my lunch break and the lovely Dan Callow kindly furnished me with an old copy of Sidewalk magazine with my 'silverscreen article' in.

I look fat and mildly retarded and my socks are bad.

Whose socks are these stuffed behind my radiator?

cut and paste that link for the antipodean manbeast

Seymour Butts

Just delivered the new Alphabeat promo for 'What Is Happening'...

It was one of the best shoots ever; I didn't even open any excel spreadsheets, made no calls, didnt argue with any sparks, grips or labs. Just turned up to Shepperton after the pub, ate pizza, drank wrap beers and got my picture taken throwing gang signs with world class DoP, Adam Frisch and world class Director/Encino man, Toben Seymour.

Here is Toben getting his directing on

Thug life.

Sweets? Puppies? Kittens?

New Blueprint video, 'Make Friends With The Colour Blue', is apparantly well underway. 

Heaviness guaranteed.

Best. Shit. Ever.

Possibly the best website ever.

If you like skateboarding from when it was best.


Yes Timo. Yes Corin. Yes Jon.
They all won some shit; best Commissioner, best VFX in a video and 'Icon' award.
If you don't know these people then go ahead and try to figure out which is which. Its like 'pin the award on the donkey', except they're not donkeys, they're all good lads.

Nice of them to let me know...

So, in typical Fos/Landscape tinpot styles, somebody over there forgot to inform me that my film 'Portraits' (2003) was being offered as a podcast, section by section, at Its always good to see your hard work hacked into sections in a tiny little window.

A front row pic (Liz WAS the front row!) at Barfly gig the other night...

More pints than hours sleep is never a good ratio. 

We had fun though...

Nothing new about this news... I'm sure every video nerd out there has already seen this, but for those who haven't, this is the amazing treatment which secured Spike Jonze the Pharcyde 'Drop' video.

If only all treatments were like this...

Jon Spencer 'Fuzzbox' (Dir: Corin Hardy)

...and here is Corins Jon Spencer vid that he did a couple of weekends ago for a grand budget of tiddly squat.

Its like a porno Peter Gabriel vid...

Get involved....

So, carrying on from his last zero budget freebie that Corin did for Jon Spencer, here he is in richmond park and lake with his bolex camera, shooting the next one...

Dont feel that bad for him though, he was only in up to his knees whereas Helena jumped in, swum underwater and risked blue/green algae skin rash and an attack by a swarm of ticks. brrrr
