TRAILER “A Peace Within” – Out of Darkness into Light


No Comments

 

Here is the OFFICIAL trailer for “A Peace Within” – Out of Darkness into Light.

Philip Gray was dubbed ‘extreme artist’ after a number of expeditions he undertook to paint. He has travelled far and wide to places like Everest, Antartica and deep into the Borneo Rainforest just to name a few locations!

Last month he came here to Quintana Roo in Mexico with aims of capturing the Cenotes by painting UNDER WATER. This was not the first time he has painted under water and the Cenotes proved a different beast all together, even when compared to painting under an Ice Berg or with the Tiger Sharks of the Bahamas.

Meticulous logistical planning was undergone by ProTec DiveCenter to ensure that painting in the overhead environment was both safe and the conservation of the Cenotes was paramount. Over the week he was with us he produced several beautiful Canvas’ truly capturing the beauty of The Pit, Calavera (Temple of Doom), Casa Cenote and Cenote Carwash!

This trailer will be distributed throughout DeMontfort Fine Art Official galleries across the UK and Cruise Ships to launch his new collection “A Peace Within”.

It has been an absolute pleasure to have had the opportunity to shoot and produce this project, something so far removed from anything else I have undertaken. It’s been a challenge, an invaluable experience and most of all A LOT of FUN!

Philip Gray – Cenote Carwash ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

The last, but by NO means least canvas of Philip‘s collection.

Today we went to Carwash, between the misty skeleton trees into the twilight zone to paint. I ADORE carwash, it’s not the first shoot I have done here and it certainly won’t be the last. I love sinking through the cloud layer to a scenery below that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale.

I will now be focusing of editing a documentary together for the foreseeable. Stay tuned!!

Philip Gray – Casa Cenote ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

Tempted to say my favourite of the shoot so far! The diversity of the cenotes here is just incredible! Today we headed to Casa Cenote and in Philip‘s words “the light beams are almost biblical”. To be honest this is such an aesthetic dive site and providing conditions are right as it’s connects straight into the ocean it really is hard to take a bad shot!

Philip Gray – Calavera ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

We shot at Calavera  for the third canvas in the collection, otherwise know as the ‘Temple of Doom”. This was a more challenging shoot as the painting sat in the halo-cline and so a lot of the shots were hard to focus. The visibility wasn’t at it’s best and the beams not at their brightest. These things happen when your shooting on location and have no control over the elements and nature. Only two paintings left, and Philip has chosen Carwash and Casa Cenote.

Behind the scenes of ‘Nature’

Quick peak on location at Diving Prestige SA and behind the scenes for the music video. Trying very hard on this edit not to give too much away! This is will be last video diary until the Music Video is finished for spoiler purposes.

The aim of the finished product is to echo the theme of ‘Metamorphosis’ by the way of movement, visual transition and colour.

OFFICIAL Music Video – Bassline Drift ‘Drink the Water Down’


No Comments

This ‘water’ led a someone down a deep rabbit hole that has her a little confused, but, everything is beautiful so she has no need to worry. Everything will continue to be beautiful and no reason to fear because fear is only an illusion in the mind.

So proud to have had the opportunity to direct, shoot and produce this very special music video. It has been a totally different area of filming for me and one I have definitely fallen in love with. Many, many hours of hard work, both in the Cenotes of the Riviera Maya and behind the computer have gone into this one!

I am very excited to share it with you all!
