SHREDDED WHEAT DIRECTED BY DANIEL WARWICK

The latest from Daniel Warwick shows a man taking to the high diving board and launching himself at the water 10 metres below. Shot in slow motion we see reactions from onlookers around the pool.

The film was shot in Portugal, lit by Magnus Joenck and edited by James Norris at Whitehouse. The film was unmistakably voiced by cricket pundit Henry Blofeld and the agency is McCann Erickson, London.

PADDY POWER DIRECTED BY PETER CATTANEO

PADDY POWER DIRECTED BY PETER CATTANEO

Peter Cattaneo has just finished up this lively spot for Paddy Power. Shot in the Scottish Highlands, it features The Krankies and Michelle McManus as they join a raucous crowd of Scots charging up the mountain as they sing, without a care in the world, about how they have failed to qualify for the Euro 2016 tournament, which kicks off in France later this Summer. 

The 60” commercial was created for Lucky Generals. It was edited by Nik Hindson at The Assembly Rooms, post production was handled by Electric Theatre Collective and the music (to the tune of Fat Les’ Vindaloo) was composed by Sascha at Adelphi Music.
