A catch up post here as it’s been a while, here’s some things that have caught my eye in 2014 so far
Young by The Paper Kites
Using 4,000 images from 350 people this is stunningly simple idea you can’t take your eyes away from
Lookup – British Airways
Fantastic idea for taking digital outdoors and integrating it into the real world.
Icons – Sunday Times
One shot, 50 seconds, 6 iconic moments of popular culture from US and Grey

Canon – No one sees it like you
If you have any interest in photographer this beautiful spot for Canon will have you wanting to go out and capture the world with your lense
Waitrose – Carrot
A stunningly simple and moving ad by Waitrose, with fantastic use of The Cinematic Orchestra. This was directed by Tom Tagholm who made the best sports spot of the last few years in Meet The Superhumans for the London Paralympics, certainly a change of pace.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update and this is why, the first of four films for Adidas on the pressure of penalty taking. Lots of fun filming, especially the title sequence.
It’s been one of the most hectic months I’ve ever had so a short one for now I’m afraid.
Sound is one of the most overlooked areas of filmmaking, and also one of the most important as evident in the latest reel by the fantastic team at Radium
Stunning animated short,this is a great example of a short powerful script with a fantastic visual treatment
Great example of projection maping
Another animation,and a very distinct style, besure tocheckout Guillaume Dousse’s website http://gdousseportfolio.blogspot.fr/
