Wiltshire Farm Foods / Angie’s story

Creative agency Doner

asked us to make a film about Wiltshire Farm Foods’ new softer foods range for sufferers of dysphagia; a medical condition where sufferers cannot swallow normal food.

We filmed dysphagia  and MS sufferer Angie;

a wonderful lady who said:

“It’s revolutionised my life: It’s made my diet from a kipper into an oyster.”

We think this is a powerful example of a real and authentic story.

Purina / Doggy, doggy

We like dogs – and they seem to like us. We’ve made over two dozen doggy films for Purina mostly; for broadcast and online. The briefs ranged from quirky ads to mini documentaries

on pets and owners to interviews with Purina scientists on the virtues of good nutrition. Make no bones about it, we’re masters of live dog action. Any breed, anywhere. Woof, woof.

Lacoste / SS14 collection

Following the success of our previous films for Lacoste they asked us to make a 20 minute film for each of their five new shoe collections — the films would the content for their global conference — replacing the speakers.

We rose to the challenge, producing a massive 100 minutes of content,

(as long as a feature film).

They loved the result:

(see testimonial). Here we’ve cut together a two minute highlights reel — plus a few out-takes…

Canterbury / Come on England

When Canterbury took over as kit sponsor of the England rugby team they asked us to come up with some promo teasers. They wanted to show England rugby as an inclusive family in which the fans and the groundsmen are as important as the captain. We brought in one of our brilliant creatives and came up with the big idea:
the England is all tagline

and 10 x 10-second teasers, each with a line from a powerful VO script.
A manifesto film combined the teasers into a 90-second spot. Shoots included England captain, Chris Robshaw, backroom staff at Twickenham, England women’s full-back, Danielle Waterman, and officials at Drybrook RFC. David Bailey shot the campaign stills.

Lacoste / C’est le pied

La Chaussure Lacoste asked us to help launch their spring/summer 2013 collection at Lacoste’s global conference in Paris. Our idea was to celebrate Lacoste’s

designers etc. and their creations in a split-screen format using a mixture of stop-frame and live action set to an upbeat funky soundtrack. Voila.
