"Prime Cuts is unique graduate motion arts organisation which is focused on supporting students of moving image in the UK through; events, festivals, work placement opportunities, national screenings, press articles and free advice.
The 2013 festival was our first venture with New Designers, Europe's leading graduate design show. The festival was a great success, and we are all very happy to have found a new home with New Designers."
"The result of my doctoral research was presented as a creative work and an exegesis. The research project was an autobiographical video production entitled, Lorne Story. This video production was in the form of a video postcard – an epistolary video reporting on the creative research practice as a creative video–specific research practice. The accompanying exegesis was also in the form of a report – a written letter reflecting upon the creative video research practice, and reflecting upon itself – as a creative written research practice. This approach suggested that both the practice and the exegesis are creative research practices – both separately and together. In my research, the relationship between the practice and the exegesis also developed as a correspondence between practices."

"HITRECORD.ORG is a project I started almost five years ago now, and in 2010, we evolved into a professional open collaborative production company. We create and develop art and media collaboratively here on our site. Even this introductory video is the remixed result of a great many contributions. So rather than just exhibiting and admiring each other's work as isolated individuals, we gather here to collectively work on projects together. Videos, writing, photography, music, anything –– we call them all RECords.
Now and then, when I think something we've made has come out especially well, I approach the traditional entertainment industry to turn our work into money–making productions; and then we share any profits with the contributing artists."

"The DSLR Slate App (by Chris Bayol) is a digital slate specifically designed for use with HDDSLR productions and works with iPads and the iPhone/iTouch. The app operates as a traditional slate, providing you with all the standard information (see picture above), but it also goes a step further and provides information tailored to HDDSLR production, allowing you to log shutter speed, ISO, aperture, lens, and many other details (which can come in handy while shooting tests). All of this additional information is stored by the app, and then displayed for the camera in quick bursts so that each page of information is captured for only a few frames. This makes slating on set efficient, and ensures that you have all the information you need in post–production.
This app is already quite useful, but I've spoken to the developer and there are already plenty of future tweaks in the works. Personally, I'd love to see the app give us the ability to put in production notes, to auto–increment takes as you go, and of course to find a way to jam sync the iPad to your audio recording device – right now I still use my DENECKE, which is a fantastic but expensive proposition."

"Hell Pizza in New Zealand entered the twilight zone with the Hell Pizza Interactive Zombie Adventure, launched on YouTube on July 30, 2010. 'Deliver Me To Hell' is set in a world in which Christchurch has been over run by bloodthirsty flesh–seeking zombies. Steve (Dj Iwikau) at Hell Pizza must get a $15 smoky barbecue sauce Lust pizza order over to a stranded woman on a container in Avonhead. Along the way he must navigate zombies, work out whether to take a passenger (Ben Edwards), navigate shortcuts and get to the girl (Emily Trenberth)."
