TEDx GLASGOW TALK IS NOW LIVE

"What if..."

Thoroughly enjoyed taking part in TEDx Glasgow 2017.  The enthusiasm and energy from the audience and commitment from the production staff was simply fantastic. Thanks to all involved.

I decided to talk on following your passions, dreams and how it's often a very confusing and indirect path that can help us realise them. Taking that first often hesitant step and how serendipity can smile when least expected. 

"WHAT IF..." hopefully offers thought, inspiration and perhaps some answers. 

I'm a great believer where you come from should never hold you back from where you hope to go...and that if you care passionately about something then whilst a final result is never assured you should never fear that first step.

This lecture is based on my hopes as a 16 year old in Glasgow's East End and dreaming of a road trip adventure in a far-off distant land. 

Almost 30 years later I realised that dream and created the portfolio IN SEARCH OF EUSTACE with my 16 year old daughter, Rachael. This is the events that led and connected many paths that one day saw me being given complete creative freedom to produce this body of work supported by the US retail giant Anthropologie to highlight their celebrations of artists who inspire them

I hope you take something from this and enjoy. 

"Never allow WHAT IF to become IF ONLY".

This talk aims to highlight and display evidence of the importance in taking a first, often doubtful and fearful, step. The possibility of rejection and negativity can cast doubt on hopes and to an extent shape the future. "What if?"

Yosemite Park through the eyes of David Eustace

Can't believe it's over 6 years now since we made this. Great folk involved, lovely location and superb little camera. Still as fresh today...the ad that is..not me haha. When an advert isn't overtly scripted or in this case not at all...the idea was the real voice. It's all good.

Small Camera, Epic Shots. David Eustace takes us on a journey through Yosemite Park with his Lumix G3. This is the long version of the Lumix G3 TV ad - For more information, please visit -- http://www.lumixlifestyle.co.uk/lumix-g3-showcase/ http://www.panasonic.co.uk/

What Dreams We Have now on Nowness

 

I was recently asked by Scottish Ballet to “create a visual statement” to launch their digital season. Given creative freedom I decided to write and direct a short film based on a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar. I’ve titled this film “WHAT DREAMS WE HAVE" and you can watch it here on my website.

Such projects only come to life when many come together with a single common hope... to create a unique and bold narrative. I’m grateful to all who contributed and delighted for Scottish Ballet to see it launch on the incredibly influential NOWNESS channel as one of their “Picks”.
