David Oliver - ‘Tsavo’ Video Showreel Demo
David commissioned me to produce a short showreel to promote his percussive skills to producers of film and TV programmes. It comprises a multiple set of some of the percussion stems that David provided, commissioned by composer Barnaby Taylor for a BBC Natural World Documentary entitled Elephant Family and Me, presented by Gordon Buchanan which aired on Boxing Day and 27th December 2016. Recorded and filmed in his studio in Somerset, UK.
The video at right ‘From Womb to World’ is a promotional piece for Conscious Embodiment Trainings - an organisation which provides training and therapy sessions on the themes of birth to parents and professionals interested in the field of Pre and Perinatal Psychology.
Singer/songwriter Lee Rahn commissioned me to film a music video for his song ‘Better be the Bird’. We filmed the piece in Glastonbury (his home town) overlooking the famous landmark of Glastonbury Tor. Lee is using this promotional video to promote his music and also as a tool to show to potential promoters with a view to find future gigs.
I was commissioned to film Lewis & Beth's wedding day at Farrington Gurney in Somerset. From the day spent with the couple pre wedding, discussing their requirements, Forest Graphics offered a complete wedding film package. Lovingly crafted with attention to detail it was delivered in multiple formats for the couple to cherish and share with their friends and family via online social media platforms.
Andy Ballard’s film of our daughter’s summer wedding is a joy - but more than that - having Andy around involved in the planning and on the day was a complete pleasure - his enthusiasm and joie de vivre is catching! Thank you Andy for giving us a joyous record which also respectfully captured the tone and character of our particular wedding. Thank you. Leila Smith
The video seems to be generating a lot of interest already. People have commented on the excellent quality of the video - so your skills are being noticed. Thanks again for everything. I’m already thinking about the possibilities for a 3rd film. Matthew - Conscious Embodiment Trainings
