Tues 11th August: Andy Hillman by Tim Walker

After a hectic few months of back-to-back overlapping jobs, Hillman Studio have been able to put down the kit bag and go on their annual leave.  Stacks of surreal props have been popping in and out of the studio for various and varied shoots.  I'm particularly excited about a portrait story with Tim Walker that has been an ongoing saga for quite some time.  Whilst orchestrating this mammoth and monumental feature, there was a chance for a quick set up with the actual artist behind the sets.  Here is Hillman himself in one of his regular tea-making/chilling-around-the-studio attires.  Us prop-makers have a penchant for strapping surplus pieces to our clobber to great effect. 
Andy has been another enchanting exponent in the crusade to enlighten the industry to my blog   .........as seen in this recent interview for a CDG related interview in Japan:

What are your favourite musician(s), film director(s), writer(s), creative practitioner(s)
I don’t think I have any favourites because a lot of these things depend on moods and feelings but in the last few days these people have made something I have listened too, read or watched that I have loved. Cormac McCarthy’s book the Road, Guillermo Del Toro’s creatures (am very excited to see what he does with the Hobbit), Hayao Miyazaki’s imagination and story telling, Florence and the Machine’s album, Lungs, is beautiful and haunting and 
fredbutlerstyle.blogspot.com is always book marked."

Thankyou Andy!  Have a fantastic break from driving those Boleyn vans and see you the other side at Somerset House!
