This is a collection of the music videos that I've produced, directed, or both produced & directed.
BEARDYMAN v DOORLY - VAMPYRE SKANK
Beardyman & his manager got in touch to ask if we could shoot a music video for Vampyre Skank using puppets as they'd seen some of the stuff we'd done for the Beat Hotel adult puppet show.
It went back & forth for a while & I wasn't sure if it was going to happen, then I got a call, a week before I was due to fly out to Austin for SXSW, to give it the green light. It was a mad week getting it all ready, but it was a lot of fun and this is the result.
ERIC NEEDS TO KNOW - HEY ROCKY ANSWER THE PHONE
The music video for the 'Eric Needs To Know' track called 'Hey Rocky Answer The Phone'. Animated by Daryl Campbell & Gareth Morrison, it took 4 months to complete, and uses references to the war of communication that is used to maximum effect when 'real' wars take place.

NI MUSIC AT SXSW - PART 2
CUTAWAYS - I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU DON'T SAY
A video for the Belfast band Cutaways, for their song 'I Don't Understand What You Don't Say'. The birds weren't very responsive to start with, but it's amazing what a bit of seed will do ... and we ended up with this great video of the birds legging it around parts of Belfast.
FALLEN - WICKED POTION
BBC NI Music show ATLTV commissioned me to direct a music video for Belfast metal band 'Fallen' [now called Sorrowfall] screened in June 2005.

A MOMENT ON YOUR OWN - MEN IN SPEEDOS
This music video was directed by Chris Baugh, for the track 'A Moment On Your Own' by 'Men In Speedos'. Our stars, Jessie & Dylan Jones, stole the show. Shot as music video for Red Label Records, produced by Seamless Productions.
CUTAWAYS - LOVERS ARE LUNATICS
Music video for the Belfast band Cutaways, for their track 'Lovers Are Lunatics', directed by Gawain Morrison, for Seamless Productions. Even though the band look a bit small, they belt out a large sound. Don't let the lack of facial features put you off them, because they're lovely once you learn to get past that.
