The London Forge

Fire Sermon book jacket design

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never been in a blacksmiths before so when Harper Collins rang me up and said can you nip up to The London Forge in High Barnet and make a video one I was intrigued. They wanted a behind-the-scenes look at how they designed the cover for Fire Sermon and it gave me a great opportunity to get the Canon 7D out and get some lovely shots of red hot pokers, oxyacetylene torches and angle grinders blasting sparks out all over the shop.

All in all it was a lovely morning, working with nice people and producing what I think is a visually arresting little promo video.
