CHILDREN IN NEED
DO YOUR THING
It's that time again, time to do your thing for Children In Need. Chris shows us that it doesn't matter what your thing is, just that you do a thing, it could be the baking thing, or the massive beard thing, or even the stuck to the wall thing. Everyone's got a thing. What's yours?
SPEAK THE WORLD
If you travel the world, it helps if you can speak the world too. The impossible is now possible with the latest addition to the Hostelworld app. Globetrotting director Yonatan Weisberg shows us just how this works in Indonesia, with a little help from comedian Phil Wang.
WHAT TYPHOO ARE YOU?
Chris Cottam's latest commercial for Chief asks the question on the tip of Britain's tongue, What Typhoo are you? Weak or strong? Do you like yours sweet? Everyone's perfect brew is different. However, we can certainly agree with Nigella on one thing, we like ours with cake.
In this mesmerising spot for Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky, Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry is unrecognisable as it is transformed into a whiskey barrel store by Chief and director Nate Camponi. Two phenomenal dancers bring some Latin fire to the occasion, expertly blending their kinetic choreography with a more traditional setting.
WE ARE BOUND
In his latest stunning music video, Joe Connor takes Jack Savoretti's latest single, We Are Bound, and literally contorts the visuals into something beautiful. Featuring a visceral performance from Jack and his band, as well as some truly ethereal suspended gymnastics, Joe's vision truly compliments this dynamic track.
Nate Camponi takes us on another trip to the Scottish Highlands in his latest piece for Johnnie Walker Whisky. This time, Master Blender Jim Beverage takes us through why 18 is such a special number, alongside the usual plethora of stunning photography.
A SPECIAL KIND OF LOVE
Valentine's is a special day, and love comes in all shapes and sizes, however, some kinds of love are particularly special. With a little help from Michail Antonio, Yonatan Weisberg shows us an example of one such love, but in this case, special might just be an understatement...
MAGNIFICENT (SHE SAYS)
Joe Connor's beautiful presentation of the incredible Myanmar is the perfect visual companion to Elbow's latest, atmospheric single. Ethereal sounds and luscious countryside views transport you to one of the planet's last remaining untouched gems, magnificent.
CHOOSE YOUR FUTURE
When it comes to our collective future the possibilities are pretty much endless, and that's exactly what Salford University wanted their new film to convey to potential students. Taking a big step away from what you would expect from a normal University commercial this dense, and layered visual experience grabs you from the start.
NON STICK GUARANTEED
In this feast for the eyes, director Marc Ingham provides a mouth watering display of what you can achieve with Circulon cookware. If you can watch this commercial without immediately heading to the kitchen, you have a stronger resolve than we do.
It seems that John West's products have gotten so easy to use that the chefs on board their trawlers are finding more and more spare time to take up new hobbies. This new spot from director Luis Gerrard was shot out on the high seas of Montenegro.
MAYBE IT'S A GOOD THING
A tapestry built up from a vast number of techniques. From green screen, to stop motion and a brilliant array of different physical sets. Yoni's video for KT Tunstall is punctuated by an incredibly musical edit and some barnstorming visuals.
We wanted to play our part in supporting the national side as they head off to the Euros, so working with creative agency Fold 7, Carlsberg, and England icon Stuart Pearce, we made this film where a real, active building site is come upon by a surprise delivery. Nate Camponi and crew bring a sense of excitement, fun and humour to proceedings.
Nate Camponi created this beautiful, and elegant video for one of the defining African artists of his generation - Baaba Maal. Looking at what it means to actually bring art to life, this wonderful crafted film is a post-modern examination of the artist's place in the creative process.
Betsafe needed to find a way to really command attention ahead of launching their latest car for Gumball 3000. So naturally, we took to the streets of Manchester in a real life Formula 1 car. Yonatan Weisberg and crew followed the car with a school of cameras trained on capturing every reaction as Mancunians caught site of the car.
HOLD MY HAND
Jet 2 wanted to show a very particular point of view in their 2016 brand commercial and, after building a very particular camera rig to capture this idea, director Nate Camponi, along with the team at Chief, set about bringing to life this script and allowing the viewer to spend 40 seconds enjoying the perfect slice of a family holiday.
BOSS OLD TRAFFORD
We teamed up with global sporting brand Adidas to create this film as part of their #BeTheDifference campaign, showing some incredibly talented young footballers showcasing their skills in some of the places in Old Trafford which most Manchester United fans can only dream of playing in.
PEPE - THE ONE I LOVE
One of football's most notorious hard men...singing a heart felt love song as a Valentine's Day gift. Right, okay. Well that sounds pretty fantastic to us, and working with Manchester based agency LOVE our director Ben Tonge certainly brought Pepe's lighter side to the world's attention.
This blistering, incendiary, explosive and visually bold commercial for Puma stars one of the biggest footballing superstars on the planet in Sergio Agüero. A neon landscape, filled with football ninjas and luminous Puma Evo Speed boots Joe Connor's imagination and vision certainly brought this to life in exemplary fashion.
ON THE BEACH
OUR NEW TOTALLY BEACHIN' TV AD
On the Beach deliver lots of beaches, and director Ben Tonge delivers lots of laughs in a perfect ratio. A brilliant balance of natural, warm performances, clever staging and a feverish edit jam packed with infectious laughter really help bring this script to life.
Genting Casinos wanted to totally reconfigure how audiences perceived their brand, so working with agency Ponderosa our Director Nate Camponi created this incredible slice of cinema. The kinetic photography, and frenetic pace really have to be seen to appreciate just how much craft went in to bringing this commercial to life.
MEDUSAE- MAGIC TOUCH
Just a casual spot of magic for Umbro's revolutionary new boot. Combining finesse and incredible pace; this one required a production and post-production process that was just that little bit clever to make a film which is absolutely seamless.
WE BUY ANY CAR
Cris Mudge again brings together one of the UK's most recognisable brands, and tales of the benefits you can get from using WeBuyAnyCar.com. Simple, clean and effective direction mean that it's the characters in the pieces themselves that really stand out.
IN ALL THE BEST PLACES
When you're looking for the cosiest, warmest, and most interesting places to take your next break it seems Cottages.com may be your best bet. Chris Cottam's commercial shows a myriad of interesting, odd and wonderful places you might find by using Cottages.com.
KIDS GO FREE
Shooting on location in Magaluf, with holiday makers Jet 2 and our friends at creative agency HOME, director Nate Camponi and the team at Chief Productions had a week of production in the sun, on the beaches, and by the sea...it was very hard work.
THIS IS SKINTILLATION
Joe goes back to his theatrical routes and brings to life this interesting, and charmingly odd film for skincare brand Magnitone. The colours, the sets, the girls and the music all add up to an incredibly charming and whimsical film that is certain to grab your attention,
