Season’s Greetings – Retro TV


I started putting out a little Christmas video message to my clients three years ago and so this is the third one.

My wife Kim, showed me her  cousin’s little decoration idea so I thought that I’d share it and do it 60’s TV style – with the help of our daughter Emma as ‘presenter’.

Black & white conversion was done in Premier Pro using ‘SL Noir 1965’.

Music – ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ by Dreamnote Music at

Happy Holidays.


The Rochester Dickensian Festival


The full length version of the Rochester Christmas Festival video. Filmed on 6th December 2014. I live not too far away and have visited the festivals, both summer and winter since around 1994 when we first took our then 3 year old son to watch the Christmas Festival. I used to think it was a very local event until after speaking to some of the participants I found that many had travelled long distances to take part.

Thank you to all those who gave me their time on the day.

Filmed with a Canon XF100, ungraded and using a custom profile.

Dickens Festival – Trailer


Rochester, Kent, is the home of Charles Dickens. About a 30 minute drive from where I live, Rochester is a place I often visit and when our children were young we often took them to  the Dickens Christmas and Summer festivals. The locals ( and those not so local ) dress as characters from Dickens stories and parade through the streets. This year I decided to film the event and talk to some of those involved.
