Capturing the Skill of Parkour with Shamil Tanna

Parkour_1882v2flare

We recently went underground and over rooftops with Photographer Shamil Tanna on this energetic shoot of some Parkour personalities. Shamil is an ascending star in his own right and is sought after for his portrait and campaign work, having captured many well known faces in the world of sport and beyond.

One of our urban Library locations provided the backdrop and platform for this display of athletic choreography, that at times appeared to defy the law of physics. The results were stunning frames of runners suspended in motion, as if frozen or held by an invisible force, that make you look twice.

According to Parkour UK ‘the sport originally termed Art du Deplacement, now also often referred to as Parkour or Freerunning, was founded in France in the 1980s by a group of nine young men.’

The urban streets and car parks of France seem the natural place for such a sport to be conceived and forged that reflects their national motto of ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité’. This is not rebellion in action but freedom, vive le Parkour!

Sharing the Dream with Estée Lauder

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 14.36.11

This Valentine’s Day saw thousands of people line the streets of central London to soak up the spectacle of the Chinese New year parade and take part in the biggest celebrations outside China

To mark the start of the year of the monkey on 8 February, Estée Lauder released this #ShareTheDream short film for their Chinese market created by Good Films and Piro.

We provided scouting services to find a Dickensian London street where it would be possible to shoot at night. They also required a very grandiose staircase and a rooftop for the magical air balloon escape scene.

As the shoot was late and mid-week, we personally spoke to the residents and businesses in the area to ensure the job went without a hitch.

Land Rover Defender 2,000,000

Land RoverLand Rover UK staged a London takeover recently to celebrate the production of the 2 millionth Defender! We worked with FP Creative scouting providing equipment hire, crew hire and location management for the special day’s shoot.

‘Launched to wide acclaim in 1948 the original 4×4 has become a British icon. 67 years on, its legacy remains strong.’

The unique Defender 2,000,000 was built by an all-star cast of special guests, including Land Rover ambassador Bear Grylls.

All proceeds from its auction at Bonhams on December 16th were donated to Land Rover’s charity partners. To coincide with this landmark milestone they also held a competition to win a free Land Rover Experience Day.

The story follows a taxi to its destination as Defender Fever takes over the capital. See if you can spot the many visual references in the video below.
