Introducing the Team
With a substantial amount of filming and editing experience, Gregory completed a year at college before joining Live Magazine to gain more experience. This lead Gregory to make a range of contacts within the film industry and complete a series of work experiences with various production companies, most notably MTV. With the experience he has gained, Gregory would like to start up his own production company with a few of his own productions in the pipeline already. Gregory's interest is film - corporate and documentary and anything in between. Gregory is a man inspired by achieving his targets and fulfilling his dream of a long and successful career in TV and film.
Daniel is currently in his second year practicing Interactive Arts (BA Hons). He has produced everything from animations and installations to films and simple games. A lot of his work is inspired by the world around him, “it could be a piece of found material or an environment or recurring symbols or objects I come across.” A lot of Daniel's second year work has been focused on creating interactive animations allowing watercolour animations or animated video stills to be controlled as characters in simple games.
He is inspired by the work of Sam Easterton, who provides a fascinating insight into natural behaviour by attaching tiny cameras to animals and is building a database of footage captured from each of these perspectives.
Daniel is also fascinated by the process-based work of Andy Goldsworthy and the sculptures of Jim Bond.
Rebecca has just completed a degree in photography, but with a background in design and fine art also able to see things with an artist's eye and understanding. As a photographer her specialist genres are portraiture and social documentary, although she also has experience in music and fashion photography.
Interested in people chiefly, Rebecca enjoys documenting characteristics, personalities and momentary snap-shots and working in an editorial style, photographing people with their own stories. Rebecca's experience has been very varied, recently travelling to Morocco to photograph interiors and regularly taking photographs for the Big Issue magazine.
Rebecca is influenced by a range of contemporary photographers including Rineke Dijkstra, Nan Goldin and Corinne Day. She also appreciates the sheer scale of Jeff Wall's work and the amount of energy that he injects into one idea and set up. Rebecca's ambitions for the future involve photography but sees her path being quite unpredictable and tries to embrace that.
