Talking Drum
#Colour #Music Video

Talking Drum is an ode to the West African drum famed for mimicking human speech, an almost hum-like sound.

The song and visual is prayer to the ancestors, pleading for forgiveness, asking if it is not too late to return to the
Motherland.

The African drum known for its part in traditional storytelling tells the story of the African diaspora and their quest to return; like a group phone call home.

Kingsmill
#Colour #Commericals


Kingsmill’s latest 5050 bread has been supercharged straight into a delicious egg yolk. Now with added vitamins, the toast dons it’s cloak to save the day.

The brief on this grade was to capture a lazy sunny Sunday morning and you’re treating yourself to a delicious breakfast. The light from DoP Mark Nutkins was superb and made it straightforward to warm the highlights and get the time of day right. With any food advert the product has to be perfect and the toast was made to look golden and rich.

Cornish Orchards
#Colour #Commericals



As anyone who has ever visited Cornwall can atest to, there is a certain magic about its surroundings. The warm summer air carrying the lazy hum of bees. The gentle splash of the waves and the babbling brooks.

For Cornish Orchard’s latest Cider range, they wanted to capture some that nostalgia with their own lilt and sense of humour. The start of each scene is as pristine as the beeze, but something happens at the denouement of each vinette. The stream drags the bottle with it, an apple falls from the trees above. Reminding you exactly what Cornish Orchard Cider is about. Fun.

Veet
#Editing #Commericals




Looking good doesn’t need to be hard work. For the third year in a row Veet are sponsoring The Only Way is Essex and Recipe created iconic idents for the iconic show. In each of these vignettes we explore the effortlessness that comes with Veet and contrast it with fun moments.

The minimal and pristine sets direct the focus onto the actors and their performances. The challenge with this cut was finding the perfect human moments in both the Veet girls and the onlookers to maximise the comedy and absurdity and bring the story to life.
