Pause Fest, a leading digital film festival in Australia, approached me as one of ten creatives selected from around the world to create a film for their 2015 festival...
...the result is an abstract film tackling our perception of innovation....
“We tend to rewrite the histories of technological innovation, making myths about a guy who had a great idea that changed the world. In reality, though, innovation isn’t the goal; it’s everything that gets you there... It’s the important leaps forward that synthesize lots of ideas, and it’s the belly-up failures that teach us what not to do.
When we ignore how innovation actually works, we make it hard to see what’s happening right in front of us today...Worse, the fairy-tale view of history implies that innovation has an end. It doesn’t. What we want and what we need keeps changing.
[It’s] all the little failures, trivialities and not-quite-solved mysteries that make the successes possible.... This is what innovation looks like. It’s messy, and it’s awesome.”

A 'fun' short doc about my trip to Northern Ireland with my family last summer. Problems and complications ensue as we take a day trip in the car.
I covertly filmed in the car resulting in lots of shakiness and black-outs.
This was necessary to capture my family's natural attitudes and actions.
The 'spy'-role I adopted probably helped maintain my sanity along the way.
The satiricial grime rap project.
