IGNORE THIS… DOCUMENTARY SHOWREEL:
Mongolia Unearthed – long form documentary:
Ignore This… have recently been in Mongolia filming a new major documentary. We are currently logging the HOURS of amazing footage we amassed. In July, we go back for the second part of the shoot, so the completed film is a while off yet. But until then, here are a couple of the video blogs we made whilst out there (please check out the ‘Mongolia Film Project’ page for all of the blogs we did):
An amazing young Mongolian band called ‘Mohanik’ that we followed around for a few days. This is from a rehearsal session.
The capital of Mongolia has a real housing problem. This is the blog of our experience of the Ger district.
7 Day Drunk – Long form documentary:
In association with Arts Council England / Jerwood Charitable Foundation / Soho Theatre /
Performance artist Bryony Kimmings spent 7 days in a state of self-induced intoxication to explore whether historical and socially accepted links between artists and mind enhancing drugs, in this case alcohol, stood up against science.
In this feature length documentary, Ignore This follows an artists journey from concept to final work and is a beautiful insight into why artists create work, the world of addiction, Bryony’s personal relationship with alchohol, and the battles between science and art.

How the Light Gets In – Long form Documentary:
Emotional, heart-wrenching, fascinating, HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN follows descendants of Nazis and Holocaust survivors as they come together to answer the question: “how has the Holocaust and the Nazi Regime impacted your life.” These personal revelations, addressed within the context of a dialogue group formed by One by One (http://www.one-by-one.org), take us on a journey into the darkness of the human psyche and upward to the heights which are possible to reach when truth is faced together.
It becomes painfully clear that the perpetration of crimes against humanity has an impact on the descendants of both sides. HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN aims to show how One by One’s work has begun to offer some hope to others polarized by war and genocide. As we journey into the darkness, we find that in the face of the most difficult challenges and struggles, there are those who, by facing truth together, teach each other and all of us how to choose life over destruction.
