Joan & Carol · Cheerios

Where would we be without that friend, the one that is there when you need them, wherever and whenever?

Jesper’s latest film for Cheerios follows Joan and Carol, two neighbours who’s friendship flourishes over several decades of fun and adversity – through crises including leaky roofs, house fires, a bat infestation (surely a homage to Catch him Derry), and other neighbours dodgy dance moves.

The glue that binds this relationship is bowl after bowl of sweetened cereal hoops – which as part of a healthy diet can afford one sufficient longevity for these kinds friendships to mature, like fine wine.

Somehow, in Jesper’s masterful hands, this schtick seems quite credible and entertaining.

Toffifee “Imperfect” by Liz Murphy

12 April 2018

There is a tendency amongst parents to bemoan the pressures of family life, the chaos, the perpetual grinding tiredness, the lack of gratitude, lack of support, the financial pressures, the bloody dog, the anxiety, social one-upmanship, the school gate mafia, that perfect family up the road in the big house who manage to go skiing and somewhere hot every year with their kids who seem to win everything, questionable school mates, and ringworm. But the truth is family life can be a series of magic moments, plenty of giggles and warm loving memories. Liz manages to capture this side of family life in a delightful series of filmic vignettes, coaxing the most naturalistic performances out of her cast.

Why ruin a perfectly simple, indulgent and financially stable life and have kids? I ask from time to time, but, watching Liz’s film reminds me why.

Part of The Family · Magnet

If kitchens could talk – I’d be in jail. However, kitchens do see it all – they are central to any family home and all of life is often played out there. In Liz Murphy’s latest film for Magnet we see a family grow and develop. From the baby daughters first day home after being born, through to a moody teen and beyond to another new arrival to the family. The unsung hero, the kitchen, sees it all and remembers.

All shot in Liz’s trademark realism, with the warmth and relatability in her cast that she musters so brilliantly, we actually cast disbelief aside as a viewer and relate to the kitchen as a real entity, recalling fond memories of our own.

Stuart Douglas’s latest film, for Chinese premium milk brand Telunsu, features Chinese AList actors Chen Daoming and Jin Dong on a symbolic journey through the wilderness, in search of a better version of the themselves: a metaphor for the brands continual striving to be better. This includes using only milk from cows grazed on exclusive pastureland in New Zealand & Mongolia.

This one of several projects completed in the last year for China, where the rapidly growing confidence, ambition and subtlety of the creative output continues to impress us. Even by Stuart’s high standards, the landscapes (NZ South Island) & the photography are epic.

Tareq’s latest, a beautifully shot trailer for ITV’s flagship talent show The Voice, sees the legendary judges critiquing an array of exquisitely lit & art directed jars full of voices, before the climatic entry of this year’s forth judge – drumroll please!…. (who’s appearance is certain to provoke some form of OMG response from the punters.)
