Inspector Fogg - Lo Spettro


A few months ago I collaborated on a film with Wayne Lancaster and Iain Goodyear. Wayne has a character called 'Inspector Fogg', it's hard to say exactly what Fogg is about....

'Lo Spettro' (The Spectre) is very loosely based on the ghost story 'Whistle and I'll come to you' by M R James and has also been made for tv in several incarnations.

Shot by Iain Goodyear in Hartlepool over 2 days with all of us throwing ideas around, some made the cut, some hit the cutting room floor. Edited by Iain Goodyear and myself in sunny Manchester.

13 Places You Shouldn't - Be Part 4

This old manufacturing factory in Walsden has definitely seen better days. I was quite shocked by the dedicated destruction of plasterboard! Even the ceilings in some parts....

I like approaching these places with the same commercial eye I use for my paid property work. I think the spaces should just speak for themselves.

In Every Dream Home A Heartache - July 2014

In Every Dream Home A Heartache is an ongoing series loosely based on the Roxy Music track of the same name. In the track, the lyrics talks about spirituality, standards of living, fetishes and the human condition.

It's hard to say what qualifies a building to make the cut in this series.... Some locations have a 'quietness' about them, some an atmosphere of a crime scene, some an air of mystery, some the suggestion of death.
