Bringing Summer Home

We all know that the great British Summer consists of two fine days and thunderstorm, but JJ Keith’s latest creation has us reveling in the irrational hope & expectation of the summer ahead. It’s that time of year when our minds turn to the cooking of meat outdoors. It’s time for the return of the BBQs.

JJ’s tongue in cheek epic sees the summer becoming complete with the return migration of our beloved BBQ. Big, small, disposable, square and cute little shy ones flock in to roost, much to the delight of their owners after a long, cold, lonely winter.

Shot over four days in Switzerland and Cape Town, JJ displays his ability wring emotion and humour from a bizarre situation. His skills of marshaling post production and live action also came to the fore as the BBQ’s are a mixture of mechanical puppeteering and CGI.

It leaves us yearning to hug our families, overcook meat products, and enjoy the long summer days ahead.

Stuart’s heartwarming new Wickes spot sees three generations coming together for a DIY project; over a series of frosty English mornings, we see the Hampson family set to work on an impressive treehouse. Full of feel good loveliness and pencils behind ears, the spot encourages us all to amend our surroundings for the ones we love, guided by those helpful folks at Wickes. As ever, Stuart’s got his eyes firmly on the details, right down to those invigorating cups of tea, inspiring us all to tackle that much postponed project from three years ago.

Its -23 degrees Celsius and Borkur is knee deep in a snow drift looking at a dead body. A team is around him hanging on his every word and waiting for commands. This is a serious situation and its only the very start of something much bigger.

Borkur is in a helicopter looking down at the almost surreal landscape of Iceland, he’s looking for clues and hints as to how all this begins. Borkur is at the beginning of a 6-month shoot for the hit Icelandic TV crime drama ‘Trapped’. Over the harsh Icelandic winter he will be filming 2 episodes in conditions that would make Bear Grylls turn around and go home.

Trapped garners critical acclaim both in Iceland and the UK – notably a great write up in The Guardian. It’s airing on BBC4 and is fast becoming a must see for fans of intelligent dark drama.

Borkur also creates and films the arresting title sequence for the series. It’s mesmerizing textures of the Icelandic landscape are a fitting opener for the visceral story that unfolds.

Nice Shirt are pleased to share the latest commercial project directed by Liz

Murphy.

The film shows a day, in a year of a life, of mum, dad, three kids and a dog.

This intimate family portrait is made with Liz’s trademark combination of

sublimely beautiful photography, touching reality and a story simply but totally

engagingly told. Moments of wonderful chaos, innocent fun, family love and

beguiling calm are all shown intertwined with the family’s day to day life of

meals cooked, clothes ironed, showers taken, and carpets hoovered.

Liz, when asked about how she created such a natural tone to the film said:

“A lot of the scenes were improvised, with the cast, around different ways they

use energy around the home. They all got on so well and had fun mucking about

together so the energy felt like a family having fun from the outset.

The film was shot on 35mm by the very talented Justin Brown. Post production

by Jon Hollis on Flame and graded by Vic Parker both at Raised By Wolves.
