BBC – 500 Words

It’s a fast-paced mix of live action and animation, with advice and opinions from Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Tulisa, Conor Maynard, Helen Skelton, Wretch 32, Harry Judd and Chris Evans himself.

It was produced by Darren Emerson at Us3 Productions and animated by the very talented Kate Anderson and Matt Abbiss.

 

Parakeet – Darumasanga

Here’s our second video for Parakeet. We shot it guerrilla style, taking on camera duties ourselves, and stars Jamie Broadbridge & Lashkar Chauhan as two teenage hoodies.

We see them drawing crude pictures all over the city. But is this just petty vandalism, or the way the two have chosen to express their feelings for one another?

Check it out!

Laura Marling – Cross Your Fingers

Laura Marling – New Romantic

 
Having done some filming with Laura Marling during the recording of her debut album, we were invited to make a video for the 2007 EP New Romantic. It’s since had a staggering number of views on youtube – over 3 million the last time we checked.

Our main aim was to capture the mixture of attitude and vulnerability in her vocals. The shadows were created via a mixture of old school lighting and post production work. Hopefully you can’t tell which is which.
