‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrells’ Nick Moran has just directed the Cherryduck Natox action film.
Cleverducks our new creative agency was asked to come up with some shoot ideas to promote new brand Natox. The script was approved and the shoot went ahead at a disused cement works in Bedfordshire.
Along with Director Nick Moran, a weapons consultant and explosives experts were bought in to help with the firearms scenes and detonations.
Cherryduck bought in their Canon C500 to shoot in cinematic 4K along with a Phantom HD slow-motion crew to capture the explosions and crashing vehicles. There was also the Canon C300 for the B camera and various GoPro Hero 3 cameras that were planted in key locations. During the 2 day shoot.
SWEATY BETTY - Studio Catwalk Shoot
It was an early start for the team at Tower Bridge Studios! The morning was dedicated to photography stills for the sportswear giant, and in the afternoon Cherryduck Productions took over to film Sweaty Betty’s collection catwalk.
We used a simple setup, making the most of the white infinity cove and shoot space, and arranged two cameras to capture the entire walk - one wide, and another on the jib. Thankfully Studio 5 is large enough to cope with the entire crew and more!
CALUMET FOCUS MAGAZINE - Article feature with Cherryduck and Canon.
We recently collaborated with Calumet Photographic for a written piece about the Canon C300 for the company’s seasonal magazine, Calumet Focus. In it we talked about our reasons for choosing the C300, and where we see it going in the future.
Calumet is one of our largest equipment suppliers and provided us with our C300s.
TOWER BRIDGE STUDIOS - Behind The Scenes.
A large chunk of our work is based around digital video production, from the birth of an idea to the final output to our clients. However, an equally large and important aspect of our company is our studios.
Based a stone-throw away from London’s iconic Tower Bridge, the picturesque St. Katherine Docks, and just next door to the cobbled streets of Wapping; Tower Bridge Studios has been the home base for all sorts of photo and video shoots!
We have hosted iconic photographers and videographers such as Rankin, Terry O’Neil, Philip Bloom and David Montgomery. We’ve shot with celebrated actors, musicians, and athletes. Worked with a wrack of rabbits, a chattering of chicks, and a kennel of dogs. We’ve broadcasted live webinars, transformed the studios into old-school style gym locker rooms, and held press conferences.
Our team has learned to expect the unexpected, and no-one loves a challenge more than we do!
So take a look at our behind the scenes photos above, and check out the studios website!
THE ROARING 20s, GLAMOUR, AND PRINT - Behind the scenes at The Lady Magazine with actors Colin Morgan, Kate McGrath, and Ruth Bradley.
This being The Lady’s first venture into joint print-and-video publication, it was essential we echo the magazine’s sophistication, glamour, and heritage.
The subject matter was handed on a platter to us: a 20s-inspired shoot with the up-and-coming crème de la crème of British acting. This was a perfect opportunity to really let our camera and editing skills fly.
ST. PATRICK’S DAY CELEBRATIONS- With Lynx and Georgia Salpa.
We teamed up with the Lynx team for the second time, following the success of our partnership during the Lynx Attract campaign shoot, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2012 in true Irish fashion with the ever-lovely Georgia Salpa.
The edit was filmed at London’s exclusive nightclub, Hed Kandi, using a Canon C300 and a range of lenses.
CANON C300, FISHEYE LENS, AND GLIDETRACK SLIDER - Defying Gravity for New Look.
We were invited along to New Look’s 9 - 15 clothing range modelling competition with Shout magazine.
Not usually the type to miss a beat, we grabbed this opportunity to bring along our trusty (understatement of the century) C300; our newest addition to the family, the Glidetrack GT Hybrid Slider; and a handful of lenses- notably, our Fisheye.
Upon arrival at the studios we set up the camera for a timelapse of the set-up whilst we scouted out the rest of the area to see what other shooting angles we could find. Our slider is about 2m long - a blessing and a curse - which means we can rig it up in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways. We found a way to hang it out of a window and slide the camera into the studio (as the photo above), hook it between two crossbeams to give a wide aerial view… You get the idea. It is a great piece of equipment and a perfect complement to our cameras, certainly something we’ll love to bring out again on shoots.
