In 2008 and 2009, Two Tap TV produced a series of music Videos for each of the graduates of these mentorships. Time and resources were short and each of these videos were shot in under 2hrs and edited in less than 5 or 6. It was a hectic schedule and i am immensely pleased and proud of the results. It was very rewarding working with these kids and helping them create a end product that they would be proud of.

The Verses Live @ The Toff in Town

8 Sep

This series of videos was filmed half way through The Verses mammoth 9 week residency at the Toff in Town by Two Tap Tv. Jesse and Ella Hooper first hit the stage as Killing Heidi. Killing Heidi were huge when I was at high school with three top 10 albums, and eight singles so I was stoked at the opportunity to film them at the relatively new Toff in Town.
They are a fantastic pair of musicians and two very lovely people and I could really sense their joy at being on stage and enjoying the new direction their music and songwriting was headed. The Verses have continued to grow since I filmed them in 2008 and in the last few years have supported Fleetwood Mac on their Australian Tour, the Counting Crows and their debut album Seasons was released on Friday, 13 August 2010, a very auspicious day. The Album was recorded in LA by Mitchell Froom, the great American producer whose worked with Suzanne Vega, Elvis Costello, various Finns and countless others.

This video set also includes an interview piece I shot and edited for Ben Pitcher for his Melbourne Rock City series of music interviews.

Oz Vs NZ MC Battle For Supremacy Highlights 2003 to 2005

20 Aug

In 2004 whilst completing our final year of film and television at RMIT Oriel Guthrie and I set aside our project, producing a Channel 31 pilot Hip Hop Tv show, to jump on the opportunity to produce that years MC Battle DVD. With only a few days to put together a proposal from scratch we feverishly ran around harassing teachers and staff to ensure that we would be the first RMIT students to be able to travel interstate with the schools gear. After filming the Vic heats at the Evelyn Hotel Fitzroy we traveled in 3 days to Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane to film the state heats. Upon returning to melbourne we filmed the Australian finals at the Hi-Fi bar on Swanston St where Justice took out the honors. After this it was off to Auckland, New Zealand for my first trip overseas. Here we filmed the Grand Final where it was Anecdote who took the top prize, first by defeating Justice in a rematch from the OZ finals, then by knocking off the giant Tyna. I am immensely proud of this body of work, it was all filmed and recorded by Oriel and I in a fast and furious period of a few weeks. It then took us 3 months to edit the nearly 60 hrs of footage down to a 2 DVD set, all whilst learning the processes of commercial DVD production. At the end of this monster project we were presented with the newly created “Industry Relations” award at the final year RMIT screen awards night. This award was created to acknowledge the commercial focus of our work as well as its uniqueness amongst the final year projects, where everyone had completed either a short 10 to 15 min doco or drama we had produced 2 and a half hours of content that was being stocked in major retail outlets like JB Hi-Fi in both Australia and New Zealand. To this day i have seen little MC battle footage that compares with these videos in terms of production value and coverage. Here for the first time all of the Out for Fame, MC Battle For Supremacy videos that have produced by Flynn Buckland and Oriel Guthrie. Enjoy and learn a few wicked disses whilst your at it


In June 2003 the first ever Australia Vs. New Zealand MC Battle For Supremacy took place in front of a capacity crowd at the Hi-Fi Bar in Melbourne. Each nations team consisted of eight MC’s chosen based on their reputations in the battle circuit and each MC stepped into a boxing ring styled stage to lyrically battle with their cross-Tasman counterparts. The MC Battle For Supremacy was controversial to say the least but definitely a milestone in the growth of South Pacific Hip Hop. The DVD contains a 45 minute documentary filmed during the week leading up to and at the event itself plus each and every individual battle from the day (15 in total running for 90 minutes). This is the DVD hip hop fans around Australia have been waiting for! In years to come it will be regarded as a classic snap shot of Australian and New Zealand Hip Hop in 2003/04.
