A look behind the scenes of our recent spot directed by Olivier Megaton

Carole Denis’s new spots

Range and style. You need both to make beautiful films, and the last two by Carole Denis show just that. Whether it’s a poetic road trip of a winsome girl and her guitar a for smartphone-maker BBK/Vivo in Asia, or a surreal fable for the latest perfume by Adolfo Dominguez, Carole creates a unique mood and vivd characters. 

The BBK “Road Movie,” with post-production in the brand new office of Digital District in Shanghai, is a heart-warming story, with a vintage  and cinematic feel. While the sprite spot for Adolfo Dominguez’s “Agua Fresca de Rosas Blancas” glows with youth and intrigue. 

So we have a range, but also a distinctive style. Two expertly-crafted independent worlds, with an elegance and natural beauty that permeates every frame.

Blackberry “the walk” – behind the scene

“Similar to the message in the campaign, the commercial took us on a great journey, starting with a detailed previz stage pre-shoot and ending up with a brilliant free flowing spot,” commented Mill producer Cat Scott. “It was great to get stuck into such a fun 2D project with so many beautiful scenes to piece together.” As well as being a great 2D project the spot was then expertly graded by Mill colourist Seamus O’Kane.
