  1. Hey Philip, Just a note to say you rock. I am a professional still photojournalist and have been for the last 25 years. Just venturing into the video world. A good friend of mine turned me onto your work and I have to say it is truly inspirational. Feel in love with Alone in Tokyo and have watched it repeatedly as well as many of your other works. Thanks again for the inspiration! Cheers, DPM

    I loved this. One of the reasons your films are so effective is your choice of music. Excellent! The correct music touches the heart. thanks :o)

  3. Hi Mr. Philip,

    I’m Chinthaka. From Sri Lanka. In last few weeks I came to your web site several times. so I’m very much impressed. and I love this one very much. but I think the topic is not suitable with video. I think the best topic is “Life”
    What you think about that?

    Thank you!

      it’s called Lost Times as it’s a place I used to go to as a child very often

    I have lived in Ramsgate when i was 16 for 2 years. Best times of my life.
    I’m Turkish, live in US.
    I write, have several projects, have a passion for Film making.
    I have a question for you…
    Have you ever thought about making a full feature?
    Great work. Thanks for everything you are doing, we are learning so much from you.

    That’s quite something philip, beautiful outcome with the tilt-shifts.

    1. pbloom says:

      Thanks. I love this piece but it is hardly talked about.

  6. Russ Jeanes says:

    Just watched ‘Lost Times’ must have missed this film, as I’ve been to the site many times. What strikes me is your eye for the ‘the magical’ the beauty that is all around us, but yet that that many don’t see – you also have an incredible ear for music, and your music choice is always ‘spot on’ and this is half of your skill – stuff from the heart – you are obviously a hopeless romantic on the quiet. Thanks for posting, and for the many hours you put into helping others for little recompense – cheers.

    1. pbloom says:

      thanks Russ. I grew up there, so love that little film. Hadn’t been back for years.

  7. Jon says:

    Hey Phil,

    How do you get all this great music? Do you pay for it? Isn’t it like crazy expensive? – thanks for what you do.

  8. michael lindemuth says:

    Beautiful! The shot of the dog at 50 seconds is so surreal, as if it were animation. Awesome lens.

  9. Edward Smyła says:

    I really like this piece Philip. The mood and tone you gave it is just incredible. And the small EX1 with Letus Extreme performed so well. Very filmic without shooting on film. Do you thing shooting the same on DSLRS you could be equally happy with the result?

  10. Robert Millard says:

    Quite moving and emotional Philip. One of your most unparalleled abilities is the creation of mood through the absolutely perfect wedding of image and music. Masterful.

      Glad you like this piece. It means a lot to me.
