Anna Gurman Showreel from Anna Gurman on Vimeo.

A range of snippets from short films I have been involved with over the last few years. It includes clips from Greenbelt TV where I worked on various cameras, the jib and dolly for live talks, music acts and interviews. Snippets of the live footage and animation I have worked on as part of various Above Bar Church projects. I was the cinematographer for a short film ‘Eliza’ and co-filmed and edited a short promotional film for the Business department at Solent University with a segment filmed at ‘Wiggle’. I also operated the camera for live studio mixes of fashion shows and the University open day.

The Sound of Taste from Grey London on Vimeo.

An audio visual installation in association with Schwartz Flavour Shots, an innovative new
range of herb and spice blends locked in oil. What does flavour look like? How does it
sound? These are the questions that inspired herb and spice experts, Schwartz, to create
what they describe as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape’.

Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli
and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition.
Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high
speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.

The project bought together an eclectic collective of creative collaborators. DJ/Producer
MJ Cole was approached to translate the sensation of taste into a musical composition.
Film maker Chris Cairns and pyrotechnic designers, ‘Machine Shop’, then went to work
turning this sound into a physical scale.

Yolanda from Tom Price on Vimeo.

Joseph Romero is a fisherman from Guiuan, the first place that typhoon Haiyan struck land in the Philippines on November 8, 2013.

After days of searching for musicians, singers, or any type of music-maker who could provide some kind of soundtrack for a couple of short films I was making, I met Joseph.

It soon became clear that Joseph had written a song directly about the typhoon, and that it was pretty great. His song had been played on the emergency radio station Radyo Bakdaw and when Joseph started to play, children just poured out of the surrounding houses and started singing along!

It was one of those moments that had to be shared, so I caught what I could of Joseph’s song in the little time we had with him.

—> Here it is, with translation from the original Waray. Enjoy!

Humans of New York from Facebook Stories on Vimeo.

Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.

As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while the HONY photographer himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.

Brandon’s Facebook community of more than 2.3 million people is more than just an audience. Together, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have propelled Brandon to become a New York Times bestselling author after he published a book of his work in 2013.

Browse through past Humans of New York photos on Facebook and like the Page to see more in the future:

SLR from Stephen Fingleton on Vimeo. SLR is a short thriller about a man obsessed with “voyeur pornography”. When he makes a shocking discovery online, he is forced onto the trail of an anonymous photographer known only by his user name of ANORAK.

In the tradition of BLOW-UP, THE CONVERSATION and HARD CORE, SLR puts a morally compromised man through the meat grinder of his own behaviour. The film was one of 16 shorts made through the BFI Shorts/ Lighthouse scheme, and stars noted Irish character actors LIAM CUNNINGHAM and RICHARD DORMER, both of whom are stars of GAME OF THRONES. It won Best Irish Short at the Academy-recognised Foyle Film Festival, and is being put online in conjunction with a companion film called SELFIE - see here You can follow SLR’s progress at
