It’s the last day of our John West shoot in Montenegro. It’s tough looking at a stunning lake surrounded by mountains all day, but the team have managed to battle through it.
We’ve just finished producing the new ad for furniture retailer CSL. A bold, elegant makeover for the brand, directed by Chris Cottam, featuring one man’s search for the perfect place to park his bum.
We posted some behind the scenes stills a week or so back - here’s the finished article. Joe Connor’s new promo for the winner of The Voice (Irish version) Pat Byrne. A bunch of men smacking each other has never been so graceful.
Joe Connor recently joined Swedish electro-rockers Teddybears for a trip to Kingston, Jamaica. The band are massive Dancehall fans and were made up to meet some of their heroes in the studio and took the opportunity to record some banging new tracks. it was a pretty wild week, as you’ll be able to tell from this video.
Our promo film ‘Bowling After Dark’ for Dog Bowl.
We recently shot a promotional film for Dog Bowl, the new bowling venue from The Black Dog Ballroom, which featured a brand new game invented by Chief - night bowling around the city streets of Manchester. We’re calling it After-Ten Pin Bowling.
If you want to go bowling at night, first you need glowing balls of course. So Marc Ingham got busy finding some talented people who could make them. The final balls were made from a special polycarbonate - the core housed the electrics, which were surrounded by a layer of LED lights. Wondering how it all turned out? Watch the final film above!
Watch Nate Camponi’s charity short for Terrence HIggins Trust. It features one girl’s search for Mr Right in a sea of Mr Wrongs and carries an important message. Terrence Higgins patron Mr Stephen Fry tweeted about it, calling the film “wonderfully quirky”. Why not take a look for yourself.

Just thought I’d share with you a great group of people that we work with. It’s the first course of it’s kind in Europe, focused on the production of music videos.
The course is taught by practicing directors, DoPs, producers, commissioners and editors giving the students the benefit of their years of industry experience. Students are even given the opportunity to gain placements, receive mentoring and go on live shoots - learning in the real environment.
Even making their own commissioned music video for leading indie label Mute as part of the course. It’s aimed at new creative talent with either a first degree or lots of production experience.
