Angelbird Technologies – Gear Review

Since I became a filmmaker around 12 years ago, one of my favourite things about the profession has been playing with all the cool gadgets and toys that go along with making films. I’ve always been really excited about advancements in filmmaking technology; higher resolution cameras, wireless integration, faster computers with sharper screens and drones that practically fly themselves. One area I’m particularly excited about at the moment is media. Solid state drives, super-fast SD cards and CFast 2.0 cards [...]

Shooting in Samoa

On January 27th  2018 I set off to Samoa with Motivation Australia to shoot for a week. There were two main objectives for the shoot: find the stories of people who have overcome physical disability to create the life they want and to educate Samoans about the services that are available to them. Nearly four years ago, Motivation Australia connected with the NHS and MDS in Samoa to setup a service for people that require an aid for mobility. In [...]

New Gear Day – The Canon C200

Always trying to find the ideal camera to make my next "goto". After shooting on Canon C100 MKII's for a couple of years, they became my favourite all round camera. Small, light, ergonomic, Canon's killer colour science and exceptionally small files sizes. At the time it was [...]

RED Revolution – The Hydrogen Smartphone

After completely changing the world of film back in 2007 with the release of the RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera, it appears RED is once again about to change how we both see and capture images. When I first heard that RED were developing a smartphone that featured the worlds first hydrogen holographic display, I couldn't help but feel like it would end up being a bit of a gimmick. I mean, cool it's great that we will have a [...]


So here it is, blog post number one. 2017 has already been a huge year for us and has certainly exceeded expectations in almost every respect. Starting a new company is never easy, but with an incredible crew, some trusting clients and whole lot of ideas, Weightless is officially here to stay. Ok, so here’s a little summery of where and what we’re up to: Last week we moved into our new home in Cremorne (Richmond) and we’re stoked to [...]
