arup.com : Go Explore.

Prior to the launch of their new website, ARUP commissioned us to make a short message driven film heralding the arrival of their new home online.

The aim was to build a sense of anticipation within the company and outside, as well as to showcase new features within the site that would make browsing a much more integrated and intuitive experience.

Produced and Directed by Kevin Hylands. Additonal footage shot on the Arri Amira C-NE Prime Lenses, by Hari Chandegra. Edited on FCPX. Online Grading by Mark Heasman, GFX animation by Component Graphics and audio mix by Marco Martini.

       
     
London Road : The Story

This year, British Jewellery brand, London Road, approached us to produce a film that would capture the ethos, message and heritage of their business. They also wanted to offer a behind the scenes look at how their beautiful pieces are produced by hand. Filmed in one day, we shot actuality in the workshop and audio interviews with the founders as well as product and model pack shots.

Deliverables were a master film plus 2 versions for social media, for use on Instagram and Facebook. 

Produced and Directed by Liz Robinson. Shot by DOP Charley Meyer on C300mkI with additional shooting and sound by Hari Chandegra. Edited on FCPX.

Tatty Devine : Our Story

Founders of Tatty Devine, Rosie Wolfenden MBE and Harriet Vine MBE, came to us with the perfect brief – to help them tell the story of their business from humble beginnings, to international acclaim.

Harriet and Rosie’s jewellery leant itself to being filmed, with its playful mixture of vibrancy, colour, wit and invention leaping of the screen; and by using their own personal archives in tandem with a comprehensive, two camera interview, the film shows both their unique working partnership as well as documenting the brand’s evolution.

The film has subsequently been used on the brand's site as well as as an introduction in presentations to many of their international clients. 

Directed by Kevin Hylands & Liz Robinson. Shot by DOP Dave Symmons on the C300 using prime lenses and the Canon 5D. Edited by Tony Collins at Splice Post Production.

 

       
     
Kurt Geiger : Hope & Homes for Children

In December 2014, high street fashion favourite, Kurt Geiger launched a campaign called #NoChristmasWindow, generously deciding to donate the funds they would have spent dressing their nationwide store windows, to a wonderful charity - Hope & Homes for Children. We were only too delighted to be invited to produce various in-store and social media films for the campaign to highlight this worthy cause and incredible collaboration. 

Directed by Liz Robinson. Edited on FCPX. Animation by Component Graphics. Online and Grade at Azimuth Post Production. 

       
     
Ford : Popcorn Day

For a new online campaign, Ford hosted an international competition, asking filmmakers to produce short virals under the headline, Days to Celebrate with Ford. We threw our hat into the the ring and our film, Popcorn Day, was awarded first prize. Devised, scripted, shot, directed and edited in house - and on something of a shoestring - we are delighted with the results. 

Directed by Ali Deacon, Produced by Kevin Hylands. Shot on Canon 60D with prime lenses. Edited on Adobe Premiere.

       
     
Chelsea Academy : Our Sixth Form

Work hard, be nice, no excuses. That is the motto of Chelsea Academy and it was a philosophy we wanted to celebrate when we produced this promotional film for their Sixth Form. The Academy is an inspirational place with so much to offer and by using interviews with staff and pupils alike, we believe we managed to convey the vibrancy and sheer scope of opportunity the school offers.

Shot by DOP Dave Symmons on the Canon C300 using Cine Prime lenses and edited on FCPX.
