This Is Dublin / AW19 Collection

Dublin is an equestrian clothing and accessories brand, created by riders, for riders. The challenge was to broaden its appeal as a lifestyle brand, whilst staying true to its equestrian roots. 

The film was shot in rural Shropshire with a skeleton crew across two days using only natural light. It was, according to reports, quite chilly.

The new M5 / BMW

BMW needed an in-depth film to support their above-the-line campaign for the new BMW M5, communicating all the latest product features as well as demonstrating vehicle performance. 

This was achieved by shooting a day on the track at Rockingham Raceway – using a tracking vehicle team, a drone op and precision driver – and two days at Rockingham’s pit garage.

New Tariffs / E.ON

E.ON faced fierce competition in a marketplace brimming with disenchanted energy customers tired of pricey, unexpected bills landing on their doorstep. 

This energetic VOD advert was created to convey the benefit of different tariffs in an unexpectedly fun way. The one day shoot took place at Studio Wayne McGregor using three professional dancers throwing shapes against different colorama backdrops.

The 1 Series / BMW

The latest update to the BMW 1 Series was shot at Junction Eleven studios to showcase the latest facelift in the BMW range – now featuring a distinctly sporty edge.  

The cars were shot on a rotating turntable to guarantee speed and a more dynamic edit, with a seductive lighting style incorporated to appeal to BMW’s younger audience.
