UPDATED at bottom!! Blog wars!!

I have known Tom Guilmette for over 2 years. Lovely guy, but he crossed the line when he made his video blog this week (t’s viewable beneath mine) and made me out to have poisoned his beer to make him sick. Well revenge is sweet. I channelled my inner Tom to make this video blog […]

The dark side of timelapse…

Whilst here in Chicago my so called friends Jon Connor and Cristina Valdivieso tricked me into doing something which I thought was a video behind the scenes guide on how to shoot timelapse…they lied. Below is the result. Read more on their website CanonFilmmakers.com. I don’t like them anymore! 0
