Hey Y'al!


So this blog gets neglected far too often. Just doing a quick update about a commercial I styled for Qatar Airlines to promote their new Business and upper class service.

We shot over four days completely on Green Screen, Stills and moving image.

There was a cast of 14. Obviously when working on Green Screen there are certain limitations – no green in the costumes for one! Also white is very difficult against green screen so avoid where possible. The client had requested white shirts for some of the business looks plus the biggest thing we had to contend with was the fact that a traditional Qatari mans dress is something called a thobe. It’s a completely white pull over robe, which has a shirt collar detail and cuffs. Its usually heavily starched and worn with a head dress- this is called a Kaffiya. This is also white. There are various ways this can be worn. Cobra style is my personal fave! White tends to reflect green and in the edit its hard for the editor to place backgrounds behind – so each frame has to be cut out! WORK! So hence why production are usually very keen to avoid white in costumes where possible.

Qatari Women usually wear something called an Abaya – this is a long black robe worn over their clothes. A hijab is worn to cover their hair and neck.

It was really interesting getting to research these looks and learn out to wrap a hijab and style a cobra.

Below are some images from final edits!

Hey Y'all...

Sorry I haven't posted in a looooooong time.. Works been crazy busy. So I haven't had enough time to sit down and write a blog entry. Right now I should be compiling some expenses, but instead I thought I would write an over due blog entry while consuming an entire bag of chocolate buttons.. yes that’s a whole bag!

So last week I was designing the costumes for the Commercial and promo for the second series of the worldwide National Geographic show called "Scam City" with Conor Woodman...

In the program Conor travels the world finding scams and unveiling them through hidden cameras.

So with the commercial they wanted to capture elements from different cities.

So we had a New York back street, a New Orleans Mardi Gras scene, a London Roof top bar & a Singapore bedroom.

It was great fun creating looks for all the Mardi Gras revelers. I found a brilliant headpiece thanks to the wonderful team at The Costume Studio.

The Little black dress company supplied me with a beautiful dress for our leading lady.

The commercial should be out in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.. Obviously I will share when I can.. but for now here’s some pics from the day i managed to grab!

So One of the jobs I have been working on at the moment is a series for Cbeebies called "Mr Blooms Nursery". Which is a puppet based show with 4 main characters - A fennel called Joan, A Runner Bean called Collin, a Butternut Squash called Raymond and a Cabbage called Margret.... and YES they all happen to be vegtable. plus theres an array of other green house friends.. all run by Mr Bloom, the friendly caring gardener.

my role within the show was Costumes and Puppets. - bare in mind this was the first time in my career i have ever had to dress vegtables. I've worked with puppets before.. but the furry kind..

We were filming up in the new Media city centre that was based in Manchester. Was such a contrast to work on that as well as be out buying rubber and gimp masks for the other show I was working on (Meet The Parents - for E4)

Below you can see one of the lovely new characters we created.. "Debbie The Pineapple"..

The show goes out around the world toward the end of the year/early Jan..

ya kids will love it..
