Finally making public the documentary I shot & directed with Róisín Murphy. We spent time with some of the biggest The Darkness fans to find out about their relationship with the band.

We also spoke with frontman Justin Hawkins about how he feels about the relationship that develops between a band and his fans and he affects him and his work…

Apart from my video and film work I am a researcher of fandom and celebrity. After completing this documentary I went on to do a Masters and specialised in the relationship between fans & celerbrities. I learnt a lot doing this documentary, despite its imperfections, I’m proud of this piece of work. Even if one person gets something out of watching it, that’ll make me smile.

Currently editing a behind the scenes video of the amazing band Bitter Ruin. Filmed it in Brighton last week.
I’m never satisfied, so I’ve been dwelling on this video for a bit…should be up by the end of the week!

Still my favourite photograph that I’ve taken. 
Foxy Shazam. I bet their spit is the consistency of liquid gold.

The Darklings Documentary - Promo Video

So, this the video we had to present during our final year thesis presentations, to show our progress during the documentary making.

It’s kind of a little promo video, but just shows some clips of us meeting different Darklings [The Darkness fans], Justin Hawkins the frontman of the band, myself and Róisín my documentary partner in crime roaming around the UK.

Róisín put it together back in March to give a taste of what we were upto.

Feel free to share it. I’m going to see whether we will enter the documentary into a festival or share it online to the public. I’ll keep you posted! 

When I was in Toronto, we decided to do a a photoshoot inspired by photographer Joey Lawrence and replicate a shoot he did with Foxy Shazam.
My friend Cian Markey shot the photo with the help of our good friends Kate, Ellie & Kevin who held lights and tin-foil as reflectors. We shot it down a side alleyway at night in the centre of Toronto with very cool drooping bulbs that hung between the two buildings.
I unfortunately am the fool trying to contort myself not quite as majestically as frontman Eric Nally. Using a broom as a microphone…I love doing off the cuff photoshoots, this is the benefit of surrounding yourself with creative friends. You can just do ridiculous fun stuff that looks pretty cool.
