"Staring Out the Window" is part of ONEDOTZERO "New British Talent 11" programme
"Staring Out The Window" by Fulton Lights is nominated for a UK MVA!
Here's some great photos from The Great Wall of Oakland screening. When I say great, I mean terrfiying:
"Staring Out The Window" and "Golden Tree" where both shown in a double bill this month at BUG, hosted by Adam Buxton in screen one of the BFI. Here's a photo of it. Just off frame is my head melting and then exploding.

"Staring Out The Window" was projected on a 100foot by 100foot wall in Oakland, USA last week as part of The Great Wall of Oakland. I'm told that I will be emailed a photo of it soon. In the meantime to help you picture it, that's the size of 6 giraffes standing on top of each other (Each giraffe balancing on the head of the giraffe below him, of course). Another way to picture it would be to think of a foot...100 times.
Fulton Lights video is showing at BUG this month. This is truly a moment when I can pinch myself and say "oh hello dream which has come true". For those who don't know BUG is a sell out event at London's BFI cinema hosted by the consistently hilarious Adam Buxton. It's real honour to be part of the gang. Adam Buxton's brother's friend said it was her favourite video of the night... try to beat that for a celebrity accolade.
Fulton Lights video is also showing in the Ukraine at the Dyvofilm festival. Uh, anyone in the Ukraine reading this?
And in London at the Greenhorn Festival on the 9th of October. I believe I may also be doing a Q&A there which will be a thrilling, engaging and deeply moving experience for all who attend.
Did a fun interview with Music Vid Kid about the Fulton Lights video, Smoga and internet comedy.
Fulton Lights "Staring Out The Window" video is doing better than I could've hoped! Thanks to everyone who shared it (mainly my Mum I think. She's a PR machine)
It's Nice That featured the video as light relief from the London riots which was nice and makes the video now incredibly important and crucial to peace being maintained in society.
Stash Magazine featured it in issue 83 with an interview with me and behind the scenes stuff. You have to register for a free 10 day trial subscription to see it (well worth doing, lots of great stuff in there)
Another little interview and nice write up from the big daddy of all music video blogs: Promo News
The Reel showed the video at their night for the best music videos called "The Reel Presents..."
Saatchi and Saatchi are screening it at their music video night called Passenger.
BBC Music Video Festival will be showing it and it also will be appearing on the BBC Big Screens across the country! Here's the locations , if anyone spots it on their local screen please take a photo and send it to me so I can squeal.
It's included in the next Soundnet compliation which means it'll possibly be playing on the screens in 15,000 locations! (pubs and shops mainly I think)
If you're in Germany you may have seen the video on TAPE.TV
The Guardian Guide features my comedy short SMOGA in it's weekly round up: CLICK HERE
My Mentronomy video is going to be shown as part of the "Night Bar" program in the Born Shorts film festival
Added two comedy shorts to the bottom of the More Films page.
One is about why Steven Spielberg chose to use a giant sparrow in Jaws rather than a shark, and the other is about the 1st men on the moon
Some blogs picked up on a video I made of every single video wipe from Home Improvement looped into an unofficial music video for Wavves. 22,000 people viewed the video in a week! PRETTY VIRAL RIGHT?
Here's various blogs talking about it
I am now officially represented by Claw Films. This is exciting.
