Bentley Bentayga Global Launch

During the summer I spent 6 weeks in California and Nevada shooting the launch campaign for the new Bentley Bentayga SUV. The fastest, most luxurious SUV ever made.

We covered huge distances, shooting in spectacular locations and having a lot of fun. 

Jake Mills did an excellent job producing such a complicated job and Tony @ Mustard Post handled the CGI and post work. Lastly, a big thank you to Piggy and David @ Keko for art direction and making the shoot so much fun.

 More images to follow shortly.

Bleed For England Rugby World Cup Film

 Today sees the launch of the campaign for the NHS Blood Transfusion which features some of the rugby worlds biggest stars asking fans to bleed for England. The campaign is centred around a simple and striking spot that I directed, where a rose is brought back to life by blood dripping on it. 

  This was a huge undertaking both by myself, Squire who produced this spot and Tim Snape at Pablo who conceived the idea. Thank you must go to Finish who painstakingly worked on the CGI and post work. Last but definitely not least, Sir John Hurt who gave up his time to do a rousing voice over.

   Lets hope this campaign has the desired effect and gets people to donate blood !

The new 2016 Bentley Continental GT

 This week sees the launch of the new 2016 Bentley GT Continental at the Geneva Motor Show.

 I was lucky enough to have just spent a month in South Africa shooting 32  images and directing a 90sec film of this amazing car for the motor show. It was a great production and a big thank you goes to everyone involved , especially Keko, Cape Town Productions and Mustard Post.

 Here are the first images to be released.
