North South in focus by Richard Wynn

We're clearly in the middle of the gold rush of video production. Youtube, snapchat, insta stories, TV streaming, narrative and documentary film releases combined with new technologies are filling our lives with content. Overwhelming maybe?

 

North south WAS a jack of all trades, a music video here, sponsored content there, HR campaigns forthis company, some cinemagraphs for that event, a facebook campaign for a product launch, an event video for a tech firm, a fashion film, a short film, a doco, a projection, drone shots for an architect, 360 content for real estate and so on and so forth. It was all getting a bit much, time to take a breath and refocus.

 

North South Pictures is at it's happiest when we're creating video content for like minded businesses. Ones that engage with their community, take responsibility for their actions and aren't afraid to push into the unknown.

 

There is a story behind each and every company, each new product and every employee. We can help you find those and tell the world.

 

More details on the when, why, what and how are to follow in August of 2017.

 

Until then,

North South has a new home! by Richard Wynn

So excited to move into this fantastic workspace with a creative bunch from all walks of life. Just look at it! We'll be adding some more artwork & lighting etc as the space grows with us. Just the platform I need to operate from in this busy year ahead.

A Damn Fine Cup Of Caffenol by Richard Wynn

Developing 35mm black & white negatives in a cocktail of coffee, vitamin C and washing soda, now that's kinda weird. 

A quiet week (work wise at least) brings the opportunity of pursuing some more creative en-devours. Inez (my better half) and I have taken to developing our own 35mm black and white negatives in caffenol and I recommend you try it too.

Here's a link to the Caffenol cookbook - http://www.caffenol-cookbook.com/

Here's what happens when you ignore it...

And here's what happens when you (kinda) follow it...

An upcoming project is in the works using this development technique with a fantastic Melbourne band, followed by an exhibit in January of 2016. That will be 5 years since my last photography exhibit, and that's pretty damn slack.

See some far more accomplished examples of what can be achieved using Caffenol in the flickr group here - https://www.flickr.com/groups/33051635@N00/pool/

Finally a couple more frames from our 1st successful roll of film: (click on the images to enlarge)
