We're going to be working for the Man. Some nice people at Adam & Eve DDB have asked us to direct a new campaign for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. Let's all just assume we got the job fair and square and we're not working off some irregularities in our tax returns.
The folks at Shiny Button have asked us to direct a Channel 4 comedy pilot for hilarious character comedian Colin Hoult in the formidable persona of Anna Mann.
As s/he's one of our favourite funny wo/men, we were only too happy to say yes. And also a little too scared to say no.
Some funny guys at the BBC have asked us to direct a sketch show pilot for them. We're really thrilled to be working with Ali Shahalom and Aatif Nawaz
and are going to do our best not to screw up.
We're really excited to be making the first ever adverts for Monzo. Yes they're a bank but they really don't want to be seen as evil. We'll do our best...
Some nice chaps at Iris have asked us to help them advertise Precision One Contact Lenses using one actress, 30 sets and an ostrich. Luckily we've worked with ostriches before.
We're delighted receive 3 British Arrows nominations. Drowsy Driver
for the AA is up for best 60 second commercial and also Best Charity and Public Service, along with Escalator
JWT have written a couple of very funny spots for Ribena and have asked us along to direct them. Ben Ashenden and Daniel Cook - two comedians we love - will be coming with us in the guise of blackcurrant farmers. A missed calling for both of them, to judge from their auditions.
Our pals at Adam & Eve have asked us back to shoot another campaign for them, this time for their brand new client Booking.com. We can't say too much about it, but it features a number of very wild animals and one particularly well trained camel...
Leo Burnett have asked us to come away with them on holiday for a little burst of winter sun. Oh, and while we're in Palma we might as well shoot a little commercial for McDonalds. The result will be coming to this site soon.
We're super excited this week to be shooting a pilot for a TV/Web series written by and starring the unnecessarily talented Emma Sidi, and based on her hit Edinburgh show Telenovela. We've got an awesome cast, an overly dramatic storyline, and a bearded stuntman in a dress... Should be good!
The nice folks at Grey have asked us to direct a new spot for Lenor Unstoppables with one of our favourite comic performers from across the pond, Tituss Burgess. Yes we're totally going to try to outdo one another on wardrobe and sass.
We're taking it as a sign that our driving skills are beyond reproach that Adam and Eve DDB have asked us to direct a new road safety campaign for the AA. All you losers drivers better watch up and learn a thing or two.
We're off to Lisbon, land of delicious tinned fish, to shoot a Christmas spot for Stella Artois. Yes it's that time of year already, and thank you Mother NY for all the extra weight we're about to put on.
We're really thrilled to be directing a new campaign with The & Partnership for the RNIB, which aims at breaking down preconceptions towards people with sight loss.
Some nice people at Saatchi & Saatchi have asked us to direct a new campaign for Direct Line, and we're really excited because we get to cast our friend Rachel Stubbings
in the lead. Expect something very, very daft.
We just heard we're off to Paris to shoot a new campaign for Mercedes Benz with our buddies at La Pac. We're not sure exactly which insight won us the job, but one of the scripts is about an inept father who can't control his child...
We've been nominated for a Webby! Get Staffed
is up against The Simpsons and some great content from Funny or Die but we're just excited to be included in such illustrious company. Vote for us
if you can.
Publicis have asked us to shoot three and a half commercials for a brand new product from Heineken, and we're off to 3 of the 4 corners of the world to shoot them, otherwise known as Slovenia. Hopefully there'll be a little liquid research involved...
