DAVE NEALE

1) What is your role and super power?

Boss Man/Director/Editor/Camera Guy/receptionist/
Super Power – Having the smallest eyes in the world

 2) If you could have made any film what would it be and why?

Reservoir Dogs because the dialogue and shot composition is pure perfection. Tarantino inspires me in everything he lays his hands on.

 3) Favourite ice cream flavour? 

Chocolate. Why mess around with the blandness of vanilla When you can get that thick and creamy chocolatey goodness?!

4) What is the most important thing about video production?

Always create something that evokes emotion; whether its a music video or a corporate piece. You want the viewer to feel something whilst watching it and to be taken on a journey.

5) Tell us something random about yourself

I once went quad biking with Fearne Cotton.

JAMES ‘ELDGE’ ELDRIDGE

1) What is your role and super power?

My role is generally as assistant director although i am amazing at everything but don’t like to show off! My superpower is my powerful beard.

 2) If you could have made any film what would it be and why?

Its literally impossible to answer that with a singular film but it would have to be between Jurassic Park, Oldboy, The Shining and Gravity. Jurassic Park would be because it blew my mind as a child and the story and SFX haven’t aged in the slightest. The theme song still gives me goosebumps.Oldboy would be because its a stunning film from the first frame to the last. So much time,effort and planning has gone into making this film purely beautiful that its staggering.I dont really need to explain my choice of The Shining, Kubrick is a certified genius!!!! And Gravity would be because I really would like to have played around with some big robot arms and a giant light box.

 3) Favourite ice cream flavour? 

Being lactose intolerant i find this question insensitive

4) What is the most important thing about video production?

I think the most important thing about video production is the ability to improvise. Planning is close second as you can never plan enough for a shoot. However whatever you plan something can go wrong, so the ability to think on your feet and work adhoc is invaluable. Sometimes the improvised shots and work arounds end up being the best part of a shoot.

5) Tell us something random about yourself

I used to like bananas but i dont really like them now.

 MICHAEL HORNSBY

1) What is your role and super power?

I tend to adopt the role of Director of Photography, but that doesn’t stop me from getting my hands dirty on pretty much any part of a shoot. My super power would have to be my ability to laugh at any joke, funny or not.

 2) If you could have made any film what would it be and why?

I’d say I would have been pretty proud to have made Elephant (Gus Van Sant, 2003). Aside from being beautifully shot in my option, I love the use of non-actors in the majority of the cast which creates scenes with strong realism, it’s almost anti-dramatic.

 3) Favourite ice cream flavour? 

There’s a great ice cream shop in Brighton that makes bacon ice cream! I wish I could say it was my favourite, but I’m happy with a bit of chocolate.

4) What is the most important thing about video production?

The most import part of video production has to be experimentation and pushing boundaries. Sticking to what you know is boring and will only yield predictable results. Try something new, you might be surprised by the outcome.

5) Tell us something random about yourself

I have a mild phobia of sticky tape, masking tape and gaffa tape.
