I can’t believe the first week of May has already flown by. I feel like you blink in this industry and 10 projects go by without even realising it. With the nature of what we do, we get to meet some great people along the way. So, whilst in this reflective mood I thought it might be an idea to take a step back and share some of our ‘great meets’ over the past few months…
As part of London 2012 The National Lottery launched the Olympic Park Run where 5,000 members of the public had the chance to take part in a run that would see them crossing the Olympic Stadium finish line. In April this year Olympic Champion Mo Farah was on hand to launch The National Lottery Anniversary Run, which follows the same idea and is part of the Olympic legacy.
We produced photography and video content for this story so we’ll let Mo tell you the rest…
I had the pleasure of assisting on this shoot with our Production Manager Rhian so you can see some behind the scene shots below:
Mayor of London Boris Johnson helped head chef Fred Ponnavoy make a chocolate souffle during his visit to the Gu development kitchen in Walthamstow, London, to mark the London-based premium dessert company's 10th birthday.
We produced photography for this story, one of which made our Photo of the Week:
Producer Elizabeth got to meet one of England's best ever goalkeepers! Being a football fan you can imagine how jealous I was. Safe hands Seaman was saving penalties on a pop up football pitch in Trafalgar Square, London, to mark the arrival of Sky Sports Channels' pay as you go on NOW TV in the UK. He was joined by Sky Sports 'legend' Jeff Stelling. This was an interesting one for us because we had a cameraman capturing a timelapse of the football pitch construction through the night, then the rest of our crew joined him early morning to interview the keeper that made 568 appearances for Arsenal.
You can watch Seaman in action here (includes timelapse footage)...
To level the playing field I couldn't resist...
In April, Child Rights Ambassador Sarah Brown presented a special UK preview of a feature film on the transformative power of girls’ education, narrated by a host of Hollywood stars (Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Liam Neeson, to name a few).
We were commissioned by Plan UK to produce an editorial video. It was placed on The Independent, Harpers Bazaar and Yahoo, to name a few.
You can hear more from Sarah Brown through the video below:
