British Vogue : Voice of a Century

There are institutions and there are institutions; then there is British Vogue, so when Genesis Publications came to us with the brief to create a promotional film for their latest work Vogue: The Voice of a Century, we were flattered and delighted to be involved in something so momentous.

Featuring contributions from Editor-in-Chief, Alexandra Shulman, stylist Bay Garnett, Biba founder Barbara Hulanicki and the iconic model, Penelope Tree, our task was not only to ensure rich content from the contributors, but also to ensure the rich contents of the book itself were on display.

Produced and Directed by Liz Robinson & Kevin Hylands.

       
     
Ronnie Wood

To publicise the release of How Can it Be?, Ronnie Wood’s recently discovered 1965 diary, Genesis Publications asked us to produce a short film to get a feel for the diary, as well as to visually tie the content together with the art work through the words of Ronnie himself. Once again our film took pride of place on Genesis’ site as well as working as a marketing tool, featuring on Mojo.com and NME.com.

Ronnie Wood : How Can It Be?

As a unique element to the marketing campaign for the Ronnie Wood diary, Genesis commissioned us to produce a bespoke music video for the accompanying song, ‘How Can It Be?’ - a reversion of the the original track written by Ronnie in 1965. Filming Mr. Wood laying down the track at British Grove studios in Chiswick, the finished promo was premiered at a special event at the Ambassadors Theatre, London, hosted by Bob Harris, as well as being premiered exclusively on rollingstone.com.

Paul Weller

To celebrate the release of the book, ‘Into Tomorrow’, Genesis Publications asked us to produce a short film to showcase the longstanding collaboration between Paul Weller and photographer, Lawrence Watson. We were only too happy to do so, delivering a film that sat easily on Genesis’ homepage as well as being used as a promotional tool across other media to fuel publicity and drive sales. Treating imagery from the book in a style similar to Lawrence’s photography and using the words and music of Mr.Weller, we produced both a 4 minute promo and 90 second teaser, before going on to produce unique documentary film content for the e-book.

Produced and Directed by Kevin Hylands & Liz Robinson.

       
     
Jimmy Page

In our first collaboration with Genesis Publications we produced a promotional film for the book JIMMY PAGE by Jimmy Page. Focusing on the wealth of photography, we highlighted some of the most iconic images whilst getting the inside track from Jimmy himself. The film featured on platforms as varied as BBC.com, Mojo.com, NME.com and Rolling Stone as well as accompanying Jimmy on his international publicity tour for the book's release.
