This is the trailer from my first feature film ‘Dark Summer’, theatrically released in the UK and distributed by Mel Gibson’s company Icon Entertainment. More about the feature film, which I wrote, produced, directed, edited and was Cinematographer on, can be found via the buttons below:
Below are two rough cut scenes from my second feature film, provisionally entitled ‘White Light’. More about the feature film, which I wrote, produced, directed, edited and was Cinematographer on, can be found via the buttons below:
(The audio is still pretty rough in this scene, work still to be done: Tighten edit; Completely replace sound. i.e. Land Rover interior & exterior wide into medium & CU, soldiers shouting, Frances moans, Peter McMullen's dialogue as he runs to soldier, dialogue replacement, atmos, foley, footsteps etc. & Grade all footage.)
Below is just a small selection of films and promos I have been involved in, mostly before I made my first feature film Dark Summer.
Chris Cunningham's first music promo - Autechre - Second Bad VibelMy first music promo as Lighting Cameraman, after finishing Dark Summer, was with Chris Cunningham, who afterwards went on to direct video's for Madonna - Frozen, Björk - All is Full of Love and Portishead - Only You, among the many. The promo was shot in three locations, an underpass in Old Street roundabout, a studio near the production company and a beach shoot.
Redcliffe School Promotional VideoThe whole script and idea came from the children at Redcliffe School, who also starred in the video. I was Director, Lighting Cameraman, Editor as well as Photographer of all the photos. I’ve worked for this school in South West London for over six years, doing both all their photography and multi-camera videos of all their plays and musicals.
The Changeling directed by Marcus Thompson
I came aboard this film when it was still in the script stage and was original down as Co-Producer, having financed the original 65mm trailer which was used to raise further finance. By the time the shoot started, I was working on my own projects but I joined Marcus as Second Unit Director/Cameraman for part of the scenes shot in Spain. When the film was completed I agreed to release the film theatricality in the UK through my Company, United Independent Pictures Ltd. (UIP Ltd.), after which I place the film with Mel Gibson’s distribution company Icon Entertainment International.
Edmund Dehn’s Showreel
After making two features film of my own and being involved in many more, I like to think I know what cast agents/directors and producers are looking for in a showreel. Usually coming from multiple formats, I’m able to transfer more footage ready for editing and with the actors input, edit a rough draft ready for approval and changes, ending up with a showreel you can be proud of. Please contact me for more information and costs.
Malevolence directed by Marcus Thompson
My first venture into film making was as a Assistant to the Lighting Cameraman, Roger Eaton, and then Second Unit Cameraman and later Assistant Editor to Marcus Thompson, who wrote, directed and edited Malevolence. The whole two year process taught me so much and Marcus heavily encouraged me to go and make my first feature film Dark Summer.
