2 Week Low Carb Fin!

So I have just gone 2 weeks eating approx 20 carbs per day which has not been easy for someone like me. Boy am I glad that's over! I have learnt a few things from this short experience. It is incredible the amount of junk, sugar and carbs I used to consume before I decided to torture myself with this diet. This has really given me a new view on what I want to eat now. That is not to say I am going to cut out everything that is bad for me forever!Its more like I will be conscious about the food I eat.

The diet has shown a slight effect on me or at least I think so. Sometimes its possible to make yourself believe something if you want it that bad. But I feel I did actually slim down slightly.
Anyway enough about diets! The word diet makes me cringe! I am a food loving man after all.

New Year New Goals

Happy new year everybody! 
This year me and my sis decided to get fit. Not an original resolution but one we intend to keep. This all stemming from watching a Korean drama called Chuno where the main guy is super fit.

Just about a week ago we started a low carb diet. It has been absolute torture! Sticking to 20 carbs per day for 2 weeks is not as easy as I thought it would be. These days I find that I just stare longingly at food I would used to eat without batting an eyelid.

But anyway I guess now I do feel a bit better generally. This diet kinda forces you to eat healthily I have found. I thought cutting out carbs? No problem!
Apart from this new diet I have also forced myself out of the house to do exercise. My brother likes using the phrase "if you can't, then you must" I tell this to myself whenever the sofa looks too inviting.

Went off to Lille, France for two nights about a week ago. Managed to go Palais de beaux arts which was pretty wicked. So much to see that I actually got tired from walking around the huge place.
As always eating was my top priority! If you saw my facebook album of food you would know what I mean ;)

Few pictures to follow!

You took this long to post!?

So I've been away for a year in Canada and truthfully I've been real lazy about posting new stuff.
But this time definitely I will start updating (random spectator: didn't you say that before!?).
Hopefully with this blog I can express my interests through photos and random other bits that I feel might be worthy of posting and of course my progression with VFX.

Lots of photos and random ramblings to follow....

Finished Uni

So the film is finished and that also marks the end of Uni! Although this was done a while ago, I just didn't get around to posting on here (oops). In the end a lot of the film had to be cut for various reasons but we managed to achieve a finished product. A lot learnt from this project that I will carry over into my next venture of short films. Stay tuned!

If you wish to see my showreel please contact me directly!

Reverie Final Year Film

I am currently working on my final year film which is called "Reverie" along with my friend Koushan Korouei (
The concept behind this film is that a woman has a bad day where everything seems to be going wrong. But when she gets home and switches on the music she begins to enter a dream state where nature starts to enter her room. At the end of this experience she realises that life is not as bad as she once imagined.
Throughout this film the colour grading attempts to reflect the mood.
Here are a few screen grabs of the colour grading used in this film:

We used a Canon 5D and a Panasonic GH1 for all the filming. We only had natural light to rely on unfortunately and sometimes the conditions were not ideal!
More to come :)
