Doctor Whittaker

To celebrate the news that the next Doctor Who is Jodie Whittaker, I’ve extended what I did back in 2014 and have produced my version of the Doctor Who titles….

I do believe I put this time-lapse on Facebook but for some reason completely missed the blog, which T-Base fans, really won’t do!

Creating a spooky theatre

An experiment with Rotascoping. Also this was originally shot just using an iPhone5s. Not bad quality, huh? One can make movies so cheaply these days!

Check out my fantastic time-lapse of a sunset in the Maldives taken earlier this year. You can tell it’s on the equator by the fact that the sun sinks absolutely vertically.

Happy 10th Anniversary

Happy 10th Anniversary

Happy New Year, but also Happy Anniversary. Yes can you believe it, 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Tranquility Base Presents. To mark this milestone, I’ve put together a short film documenting the slow but steady evolution of this, my film making website! From the first ever shots with a webcam up to todays experiments with computer graphics and post production and the bits in between! Plus some previously unseen footage (lucky you!) I’d like to dedicate this film to all those who have got involved with the projects! Enjoy and Happy 2013!

Let it snow!

Let it snow!

Some great things happen by accident. Here, I turned a bit of footage into a winter scene by simply keying out a random colour from the grass and placing a white solid background behind. Not only does is get a snow effect but great frosting too.

2011 – More than a dream!

2011 – More than a dream!

I have been working hard, honest. The thing about pre-production and/or learning anything new is that at the end of the day, you don’t really have anything to show for…

New character, new video!

New character, new video!

I’ve had a new video released today on David Garland Jones’ YouTube channel. The video features a new character called Scott Mowbray – Actor/Electrician. Watch as he pontificates on such…

Well, I have finally purchased dedicated web-space for this website and have spent most of the week moving files. Like any move you find items that you’d completely forgotten about….

End of the World

Took a break from scriptwriting this afternoon and played with a picture I took (with just a camera-phone) last year whilst in the Big Apple. Would usually have just deleted…

The Illuminati

Happy New Year!

Have started learning the basics of 3ds Max and there’s still the new look Blender 2.5 Alpha version to learn. I’m in geek heaven. Production is currently underway also for…

Blast from the past.

This should raise a smile. This is me in 1985 in the American mini-series “Kane & Abel”. And look out for a German General in the opening titles. That’ll be…
