Driving Down California’s Pacific Coast Highway & Our One Day Hike In Yosemite National Park

I’ve just returned from the trip of a lifetime; a two week road trip driving down and around California’s Pacific Coast Highway. Over two weeks our stops included (in order): San Francisco (part I) Santa Cruz Monterrey Carmel-by-the-sea Santa Barbara Los Angeles Coarsegold Yosemite National Park Napa & San Francisco (part II) A photo posted by Mitch Waite (@mitch_w8) on Aug 3, 2016 at 7:51am PDT We covered over 1,000 miles and every stop had a different vibe. We drove from […]

‘Time’: My Christopher Nolan Video Tribute

I love Christopher Nolan’s style of filmmaking along with Wally Pfister’s / Hoyte Van Hoytema’s cinematography style. I really enjoy cutting together short compilation projects and can’t believe it’s taken me this long to think of creating this (previously I focused his ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy). I tend to find a piece of music first and then think of key images/quotes to define the theme of an edit. I find cutting to music so much more effective. I need to refine my dialogue isolation skills, […]

New Social Media Artwork

What’s the brand of ‘you’? Have you got your social media branding focused? PFFFFFFFFFFFFFTT……wha? I have actually been thinking of cleaner design for the website. It’s not the fastest or slickest of themes, but it has served me well over the last couple of years. The search begins. It should take just around a week for me to configure the functions correctly and re-link my content once I settle on the design. I’ve started with the easy task of updating my social media banners […]

Jason Bourne – New Official Trailer

Now this looks good. I’m just as excited for this as I was with ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’. Matt Damon returns as Jason Bourne along with director Paul Greengrass. Arrives in cinemas July 28th 2016.

Batman v Superman [2016] Review

It’s no secret that I have a bias towards #TeamBatman. As someone said to me after asking my opinion of the film; even if Batman just sat silently on a chair in a room, I would have liked it. The Good When Ben Affleck was cast at the caped crusader, for a moment I thought it was an April fools’ joke. After his unfavourable turn in 2003’s ‘Daredevil’ I was surprised to think that he would want to tread in […]

Hockey!

Over Christmas and New Year I visited Canada for the first time, and caught my first hockey game at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto. The Toronto Maple Leafs faced off against the New York Islanders. Here’s the footage from my Sony RX100-II cut together in iMovie. Go Leafs Go!

There Needs To Be More Films Like…Layer Cake [2004]

Firstly…there does NOT need to be more British gangster films. I can’t stress enough that we don’t need to see Cockneys vs. Zombies vs. Werewolves vs. The Further Downfall of British Cinema Because Of Tax Loopholes. 2004’s Layer Cake was somewhat marketed as a natural successor to Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Snatch. But thankfully the final film inside the DVD box positioned itself at a different level. “I’m not a gangster. I’m a businessman; giving people what they want.” This […]
