Glidestonbury

In 2013 we teamed up with a freelancer called Callum Whiteley who came and helped us film Arcadia at Glastonbury. Whilst he wasn't shooting that film, he was busy wondering round the rest of the festival with his glide-cam. In the days after the festival he pieced together an amazing film called 'Glidestonbury 2013'. It was very much a punter's view of the UK's leading festival. Since then not only has Callum moved to Bristol and works from our Bristol office but he was commissioned by Glastonbury to re-make the film for the 2014 festival. All shot on...

Boomtown Fair 2014

We have been working with Boomtown Fair festival on the video production for the last five years. From the humble beginnings in the Forest of Dean to the massive production they put on today in Hampshire, we have had the privilege of capturing the characters, sets and chaos of this truly unique independent festival. 

This year, we worked very closely with the festival’s Creative Director Lak and Anna Wade who runs their PR to create a video that pushed the production levels higher than before and created a narrative, rather than just festival coverage. The intro was shot in the...

RA Live Sessions with Machinedrum

We have been collaborating with Resident Advisor for a while on various film projects. One of their latest ideas was the now established series RA Sessions, where they invite an artist to come and do a live performance in their trendy Haggerston office. 

Its always interesting to see what each artist brings to the session. Each time we wait until sunlight has passed and we use the streetlights as a backdrop for the film. We like to create strong backlighting in order for us to get as many lense flares as possible, which gives the series a distinctive style.

Here you can...

Secret Garden Party Official Video

This lakeside estate near Cambridge truly is one of the most magical places in the UK. It's difficult to describe the Secret Garden Party in words, so luckily we were equipped with video cameras. Our brief this year was to capture the true essence of the festival. Of course there were some big name headliners to entertain the crowds, such as Public Enemy and Clean Bandit, but the Secret Garden is more than just a music festival. It revolves around culture, theatrics, art and the unique and eccentric people that attend. The theme of the festival this...

Between The Beats with Seth Troxler

When we teamed up with RA and started the ‘Between the Beats’ series a few years ago, we weren’t sure exactly what to expect. There are many tour videos out there and each artist has a different story but the subjects chosen by the RA editorial team have led us on some crazy journeys, and none more crazy (or exhausting) than a weekend with Seth Troxler.
