The Green Hornet

Well the RSF was in Kelvedon, with long term friends and customers Foster Contracting.

Tom Foster was most excited at the arrival of some oil for the Green Hornet, the oldest member of FCL’s fleet.

The Green Hornet is a 1930′s Alvis Speed Twenty and needs good old fashion 20/50 oil.

The rest of FCL’s fleet are cutting edge and technology laden machines for services like runway rubber removal and the installation of geosynthetics.

So it was out with the Canon 7D and quick photoshoot of the Green Hornet in its lovely garage and hey presto a bit of photoshop later.

On a recent trip to meet Martin Corton (The Flooring Artisan), a long time friend of the RedSockedFop, at his Battersea showroom.   The RSF was so taken away with the showroom he whipped his camera out and hey presto:-

Smoked out!

v1.02 's Nigel Campling

The Red Socked Fop was at JJ Fox’s, the oldest cigar shop in the world, for a cigar tasting and a couple of glasses of something cheeky!

As a founder member of the EGSC (Essex Gentleman’s Smoking Club) the RSF was attending Padron’s cigar night at Fox’s in St James Street on the 11th March.

Fabulous cigars and company were to be had and the RSF had a snap in Winston Churchill’s very own smoking chair and hat.

Red socks were worn at all times for matters of sartorial elegance!

Babanuki – Mt Desolation – Departure

Long term colleagues and friends of v1.02 and the RedSockedFop, Babanuki, have made this super promo for Mt Desolation.

Departure is their first release from the self titled debut album.

The band’s line-up includes members of Keane, Noah & The Whale, The Killers, The Long Winters, The Staves and Mumford & Sons.

The various artists recorded themselves on webcams or personal video cameras and were brought together by Tom Palliser via the polaroid concept of the video.

Many hours in post and a pair of bleary eyes later, I think Tom’s created a master piece.

v1.02′s Annual Trip to Nurburgring

Back in Sept 2010 the crew went to Nurburg for their annual idiots weekend away with a mixture of alcohol and motorsport.

This time, being a film production company, we thought we would capture some footage and make a film, but the edit took longer than expected because of our weight of work.  Anyway, armed with a Panasonic P2, Canon 7D, Contour HD and a GoPro we managed to capture a bit of footage, but not as much as we planned because of hangover recovery taking a little longer than expected!

This film is part of the new website content which will be posted when complete.

Red socks were worn at all times for safety purposes!

The Sartorialist

I love this short film about a photo blogger who goes out and just captures stills of people on the street.

Very inspiring, but also nice to have the time.
