Alastair Tye Samson


I'm an independent film-maker currently living in Auckland, New Zealand.

I work full time as an Online Editor and motion picture workflow nerd at Images&Sound specialising in operating Autodesk Smoke and Avid Symphony.

I collect vinyl, laser-discs and sneakers.

This is a collection of my work, my photos, what I'm listening to and what is inspiring me.

I curate a more tumblr-like tumblog called Apple Of Discordia - if i re-blogged you it was probably over there!

Boy, this has been a loooong time in the making, but I’m so proud of the finished product!

Inspired by the fine art of Julie Mehretu this music video was a collaboration with Wellington motion-graphics artist Lucas Brooking. Lucas is an amazing designer and we were absolutely over-the-moon to work with him. Check out more of his work here

I’ve been waiting to post this for ages but a record label embargo prevented me until now!

This is a shot from a music video I did in which I think we only ended up using less than 10 seconds!

Here it is raw, as it came off the sensor.

Thanks heaps to Ross Turley who shot this for me.

Recently I went to Melbourne to visit my very good friend Alex and shoot a music video for one of my favorite bands Gatherer.

I took a few photos while I was there and planned to upload them all after a quick tweak but life being as busy as it is this seemingly simple task is taking for ever.

With this in mind I think I’ll just upload them one by one when they’re ready.
