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.

PUMA

SERGIO AGÜERO

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.

UMBRO

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.

NIKE

Nate joined forces with all-action duo Frank & Sebastian to co-direct this piece for Nike FootballX - with a little help from some familiar faces....Brazil legend Ronaldo and the highest scoring striker in World Cup history Miroslav Klose! On the eve of the Champion's League Final this was one sporting even which won't be forgotten quickly.

CHEVROLET

JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME

PRODUCTION SERVICE

They got Chief involved to capture players such as Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Daniel Sturridge competing in a series of fun-fair style challenges.

LIVERPOOL FC

THIS IS HOME GROUND

DIRECTOR JOE CONNOR

Liverpool FC, one of the bastions of football the world over, wanted to create an intimate and sincere series of videos showcasing the players, the staff and the people that make the club the institution it is.

TURKISH AIRLINES

MANCHESTER UNITED

PRODUCTION SERVICE

To celebrate sponsoring one of the biggest clubs on the planet, Turkish Airlines decided to stage a game of keepy up at 30,000 feet. One problem - the plane they wanted the game to take place in hadn't actually been built yet. But that's okay, we built it for them, replicated the interior of the future jet right down to the tiniest details. Job done.
