Earlier this year I filmed artist Jacob Littlejohn in his Edinburgh studio for The Rafiki Gallery. Jacob's work was recently exhibited by the gallery at Custom Lane in Leith. We filmed a brief interview and some footage of Jacob working on a large painting for his upcoming show.
Glasgow-based musician Community Swimming Pool recorded a cover of Jackson Browne's classic song 'These Days', which inspired the title of the exhibition. We used some of the footage of Jacob working in his studio to produce an extra music video for CSP's track with more of a home movie vibe.
Although I've worked with video on-and-off as long as I've worked with stills, this year is the first time I've taken on paid commissions for video work. It's been fun trying something different and learning as I go. Big thanks to The Rafiki Gallery for giving me this commission!
