Girl Guides: more than just cookies

We LOVE it! Literally had goosebumps watching it, it’s awesome. WAGGGS, AKA the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, has been a client of ours since the height of lockdown in early 2021. The difference this time around is that we actually got to do some filming ourselves. Our previous video projects for […]

An update on our journey to Net Zero

DISCLAIMER: this post starts off boring but gets VERY COOL by the end…bear with me. I’m trying to be fully transparent about our journey to Net Zero, and the latest IPCC warnings have reminded me that an update is overdue. Told you it would start off boring. The biggest toe(?) on our carbon footprint is […]

Telling the story of a company that puts people before profit

We love it when we get to work with clients who share our values of putting people and planet ahead of profits. We also love it when we get to film animals. This project combined both those things in one happy marriage, as we documented one of Tyler Grange’s Community Days at Farms for City […]

5 ways to make an impact without sound in your video content

Alongside a major rebrand, the organisation approached us to produce an explainer video that demonstrates what they’re about. They wanted to focus on the people they work with, which is where ‘Sarah’ came in. The […]

Kids react to Eurovision

Once upon a time, back in May 2020, I was meant to travel to Eurovision to film social content with the EBU’s digital team. Of course, that wasn’t to be, and 2020 became the first year in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest that the Contest didn’t go ahead. Thankfully, I still had the […]

Mental health resources for schools

Recently we’ve been working with The Lily Jo Project to produce some brilliant in-depth video content for schools. The aim is to create resources that appeal to children and young people, and that don’t shy away from tricky mental health topics. Ben was a pleasure to work with, his calm nature put me at ease […]

Thanking Bury’s heroes

Bury Council have been really interesting to work with, because we’ve been producing video content for them throughout the pandemic. Think back to April 2020. The early days of the first national lockdown. That’s when my path first crossed with Nicola Appleby from Bury Council’s comms team. She mentioned that she had come across my […]

Moving to Stockport: the best of both worlds

Together with my almost-two-year-old and Ellie, my wife and co-director, I moved to Cheadle Hulme at the end of 2020. This leafy suburb in the Greater Manchester’s Stockport borough is a big change from Moss Side. Still, that area was our home for just over 10 years and will always have a place in our […]
