Acura

 

mustard-berlin were commissioned by AOI Pro (Japan) to produce a TV commercial for Japanese luxury brand Acura (Honda) for the new 2015 TLX. The spot was directed by Martin Bennett. We filmed on location at the famous Willow Springs International Raceway, California. Working with Performance Filmworks amazing Edge system we were able to create phenomenal dynamic and exciting driving sequences for the TVC. Utilising the considerable experience of the edge team we were able to capture adrenalin boosting driving shots whilst driving the circuit at considerable speed. The camera and flight head was expertly operated by long time collaborator Jean-Babtiste Jay (DOP) and his amazing 1st AC Romain Wilhelm. The commercial goes live in early 2015.

Ford-Logo

mustard berlin have produced and directed a four film shoot for the agency ‘The Blue Hive’ for their client Ford of Europe.

Shot on location at several places around central london. The four humorous spots all revolve around the idea of a spectator to a dramatic moment, shot as a POV,  who is then distracted from the decisive moment by being something even more eye catching. The four spots: Heist, Golf, Hurricane and Girlfriend all explore the theme of distraction. The ads will go live at the end of January 2015.

Please come back soon as the images go live soon.

mustard berlin have produced a photo shoot with photographer Graham Thorp for the agency ‘The Blue Hive’  (CD Richard Last )

The shoot at Park Royal Studio’s in London was for the digital team at Blue Hive. Shooting with high speed equipment, both camera and Broncolor lighting. We constructed sets and lighting rigs to capture various items falling and smashing when they hit the suspended stone flooring. These animated and filmed sequences will form part of an online campaign for the new Ford Mondeo.

Working with the team from Blue Hive was as usual very productive and lots of fun. Please check back on our blog soon for when the images go live.

Ford

mustard berlin (martin bennett) just produced a combined film and photo shoot with photographer Graham Thorp for the agency ‘The Blue Hive’  (CD Rich Last )

The shoot took place at Park Royal Studio’s, in London and on location in the Wiltshire countryside. The studio shoot comprised of filming and photographing stunt kite flyers and scuba divers for a digital campaign for the new Ford Tourneo. Our giant squid kites were filmed on location on a very windy and sunny hill in wiltshire. A fantastic day was had by all even the wind burn couldn’t dampen our spirits! Flying six different kites we were able to capture a variety of movements and angles of kites to match the kite flyers we had previously photographed back in the studio. The second part of our studio shoot was filing scuba divers fully kitted out and ready to take the plunge. Shooting a combination of film and fast sequence stills photography allowed us to animate the models into interesting low kb sequences for online use.

Please check back on our blog soon for when the images go live.
