An After-Effects whizz-kid who graduated from Ravensbourne College in 2010, Luke's interests are intensive and wide-ranging, and he keeps his ear to the ground with regards to the latest film, music and fashion trends.

To date, his videos have received over 1.5m hits on YouTube as well as frequently being highly ranked on the NME TV playlist.

Alpines Ice & Arrows by Kate Moross & Hans Lo. 14/03/2011 17:07

 

The superbly talented Kate Moross and Hans Lo directs their first music promo since joining Pulse films. Developing a perfect visual accompaniment to Alpines ‘Ice & Arrows’ using microscopic photography and intimate layered portraiture of the band.

Here’s what Kate said about the vid

It was important to us to create the perfect visual accompaniment to Alpines' 'Ice and Arrows'.

As a studio we are always keen to find new processes to generate moving image. Working with the band's references we developed the idea of creating the entire music video under a microscope, and then introducing a layer of performance that worked in harmony with the colour and movement of the footage.

We grew and sampled our own crystal formations and created chemical reactions in petri dishes - which were then captured using all the features of the specially adapted video microscope.

thirtytwo hang in Nashville with Wanda and Jack. 24/01/2011 11:52

 

thirtytwo deliver the electric new single ‘Thunder On The Mountain’ for Wanda Jackson & Jack White. The Bob Dylan cover is the first single taken from Jack’s creative collaboration with the The First Lady of Rockabilly and was shot in a record pressing plant in Nashville.

 

This was an absolute blast to make. We didn't have a lot of money at all, but with an amazing location and a performance as insanely good as this, we didn't need it. Wanda was incredible and put us to shame, we we're knackered at the end of the day, but she kept going and going. We originally had another element to the video, but during the shoot (and then when we got into the edit) we saw how strong the performance was, and the chemistry between Jack and Wanda was so cool we decided it would be foolish to cut away from it.

TIM BROWN SIGNS TO ROKKIT, and now we REP him! 01/11/2010 15:01

 

Here at OB we're chuffed to announce that we'll now be representing Tim Brown who has signed to Rokkit for Music Videos, as part of red hot NY-based creative collective 1st Avenue Machine.



 

Tim has been somewhat of a buzz name on the London scene after an incredible year directing promos for the man of the moment Tinie Tempah, including his massive debut single 'Pass Out' as well as the MOBO video of the year 'Frisky'.

 



Originally stemming from a background in graphic design, Tim's style in moving image still retains a strong influence from his design past; often clean and minimal, combined with clever art direction to deliver effortlessly stylish and innovative content.  It's this knack that has allowed him to move into making some pretty awesome commercials - for clients such as Google and Samsung


.

 

All Tim's hard work and incredible success has led him to be nominated for Best New Director at this years UK Music Video Awards and we're sure things are only just beginning for this talented young director.

LEGS shoot US version of La Roux In For The Kill 18/10/2010 12:25

 

Hot on the heels of netting the MTV Video Music Award for Best Art Direction for their Florence And The Machine’s Dog Days Are Over promo, LEGS (Georgie Greville and Geremy Jasper) have  gotten there all conquering mits on another one of our highly acclaimed British exports making waves in the US.....the quiftastic LA ROUX!

 

Filmed over the course of a hectic day at the Chelsea Hotel, here's what LEGS said about the shoot...

 

 “Elly (La Roux) was really fun to work with, she’s a team player with a really dry sense of humor. We were cracking jokes the whole shoot. We came up with a cast of strange characters and needed faces that matched. For our villain (‘The Baron’) we were searching for a face that looked like it was carved out of stone and ended up casting our old friend Azam who is a real Palestinian Cowboy”.

Robbie returns in TAKE THATs The Flood 15/10/2010 20:07

 

So it's FINALLY here!!

 

TAKE THAT row back into action with our very own Mat Whitecross' brilliantly directed promo 'The Flood'. And the worst kept secret in showbusiness, they've brought their old mate along for the ride.

 

What an event!!

 

Here's what Mat had to say about the experience working with the lads...

 

"The original idea for the video came from the band - they wanted to do 'Chariots of Fire meets Forrest Gump', a timeless rowing race. It needed to feel like an event - something epic to bring the band back together again after all these years.

We got in touch with a National Rowing Team Trainer, and he said to get the band rowing even at a basic level he'd need to work with them for 3 months solid. We told him we had 2 hours the night before the shoot. Within seconds, one of the band had capsized in the lake and we all started freaking out. But the boys were troopers - they threw themselves into the shoot without any complaints. I knew they had a really good reputation, but they were so patient and lovely they made a tricky shoot a real joy.

Logistically it was all a bit of a nightmare. My producer Mark lost weeks of sleep trying to get permission and insurance for one of the biggest UK bands to row past the Houses of Parliament at the crack of dawn, tailed by a low-flying helicopter with 2 safety boats in tow. But the band were adamant they wanted to do it for real. I'm so glad they pushed for it. It's always better than trying to fake it in post. Every day brought another disaster - we ended up abandoning the final part of the shoot after the boat hit a rock and sank. If we'd known how difficult it would be to shoot on water, I think we'd have ended up doing the whole thing in the studio..."

Ben Newman has been on the tip of peoples tongues for a while now after his hugely successful promo's for Wiley and Example.

The vid captures the essence of the neighbourhood and goes perfectly with Fresh's Bass heavy beats. Big nod to Steve Annis once again for the stunning photography and to Ben and his whole team for braving the somewhat dodgy streets in the process. It wouldn't have worked any other way.

Helen Downing...three in a row with Mercury! 17/06/2010 14:22

 

2am Films director Helen Downing has dived into the world of music videos in quite prolific fashion over the last 3 months and we've wondered where she's been hiding all this time. All three videos were commissioned by Dan Curwin at Mercury and with Helen's A Team of 2am producer Charlie Forte and DOP Steve Annis, her first forays into music promos have been joyous and varied.

Kicking things off with the ugly beauty of a Saturday night in Wakefield for Mercury artist Matt Abbott (previously featured here), the team just about got through the experience alive and with camera intact, though a little vomit splattered.

Her next outing would prove to be a bit more glamorous, as she was brought in to add her sparkle to singer songwriter Alan Pownall's stunning video for 'Colourful Day'. Shot over 2 days in the slightly sunnier climes of Cuba, the result is arguably her most accomplished video of the bunch, once again assisted by the gifted camerawork of Mr Annis and the production conjuring of Mr. Forte.

To cap the trilogy off, Helen captured a slightly looser Indie vibe for the debut video of former Razorlight drummer, Andy Burrow's new band, I Am Arrows. Infectious and tipped to be a great summer tune as festival season approaches, Helen stuck with her “island paradise” theme for the video and took the band off to…er…The Isle of wight… for a playful bit of cool fooling around.
 
Watch out for this one....she be the real deal.
 
Check out Alan Pownall's 'Colourful Day' HERE
 
I Am Arrows coming shortly.

The incredibly talented collective LEGS at Rokkit have just completed the BRAND NEW video for Florence and The Machine, you've all heard about that band by now haven't you?

 

In “Dog Days Are Over”, Florence is the shamanic leader of a surreal orchestra where spiritual elation explodes into smokey psychedelic anarchy. Each musical element of the song is personified by a group of colorful characters that combine 60’s girl groups, Hinduism, gospel choirs, drum circles, paganism and pyrotechnics. Florence is a painted primal force of nature that whips a religious experience into a riot.

 

A superb video, so check it out HERE

Ben Newman joins Between The Eyes. 19/02/2010 11:33

 

We’re delighted to announce that the talented young hot shot that is Ben Newman, has joined Between the Eyes for music videos.  Obviously that means he’ll be getting the OB love and representation too.

 

If you’re not aware of his talents please check out his work on the BTE website HERE

 

You may know him for his recent videos for Wiley’s ‘Take That’ and Example’s ‘Watch the sun come up REMIX’ but I strongly recommend you check out his short film ‘War School’ which was short listed at Raindance for Best UK Short 09

 

It’s a powerful and controversial narrative concept that definitely highlights his flare for story telling.  Although to date most of his vids have been for urban/dance artists. I know that Ben is keen to explore other styles too and I think his ideas and execution would work equally well when applied to indie and alternative bands.

 

He’s been writing us some killer treatments so far, a mix of concept and narrative......so let us know if you think you have something suitable.

Danakil at Basic Productions joins OB roster. 10/02/2010 14:51

 

We're pleased to announce the newest talent to the OB towers roster of directors in the form of Parisian based director Danakil, part of Basic Productions.

 
As a director and photographer...a steady buzz has been building about this guy for sometime now. Since directing striking music videos for The Penelopes, The Micronauts and most famously Poni Hoax, which was screened last year at BUG to great plaudits, Danakil fans continue to grow.

 
Selected as one of the world's best new directing talent at the 19th Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase during Cannes Lions 2009 and winning the 'Best New Director' award at the Antville 2009 Music Video Awards....his work has been described as...

 
“an exploration of the ambiguous spaces that exist between youth and nostalgia, intense summer sunsets and vanishing lights, animals and lonely androgynous humans."

 
Interesting stuff eh! hope you enjoy his work, let us know if you think you have any suitable projects for him.

Mumford & Sons The Cave directed by Fred & Nick 09/02/2010 16:00

 

FRED&NICK at Pulse Films have been out in India recently covering the Laura Marling/Mumord & Sons tour. While they were out there they shot a couple of great looking music videos in Goa for both artists’ upcoming single releases.

 

“We got the opportunity to travel to India with Mumford & Sons to film the second installment of our ‘Gentlemen of the Road’ short film trilogy, and also Laura Marling as part of our ongoing feature documentary work with her,” explain the directing duo.

 

“Starting out in Delhi, where three days were spent recording with Rajasthani musicians. We then moved on to gigs in Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and finally Calcutta over a period of two weeks. In the middle of all that, two days were set aside in Goa for the filming of each artist’s new video. They are quite different”.

Arni & Kinski direct Editors You Dont Know Love. 08/02/2010 12:31

 

Arni & Kinski’s new video for Editors – shot in Krakow in Poland before Christmas – sees the emotional turmoil of a disintegrating relationship expressed through choreography. And the first-time use of hair as a deadly weapon.

 

It was shot by one of the world’s most celebrated cinematographers: Christopher Doyle – who was using a Red camera for quite possibly the first time. The war-dancing is by Damien Jalet & Alexandra Gilbert, who are definitely not in the mood for love. Intense.

Dave Ma directs his second Delphic vid Halcyon. 02/02/2010 11:04

 

Dave Ma's new video for Delphic entitled 'Halcyon' is his second for the band.

 

Here's what Dave say's about the video...

 

I found this interesting description of the term 'Halcyon' and used it in part as inspiration for a dance video in an old slate quarry....
 
 "'Halcyon' is a name for a bird in Greek legend that was believed to nest on the sea, which it calmed in order to lay its eggs on a floating nest. Two weeks of calm weather were therefore expected around the winter solstice. This myth leads to the use of halcyon as a term for peace or calmness."
 

 .....it hailed three times on the shoot day which made things tough to say the least. I really have to take my hat off to the band, the entire crew and especially the dancers for enduring the ridiculously harsh conditions in order for us to get the most out of our short winter shoot day.

Vertex comes out behind the camera with Shane Davey. 05/11/2009 13:14

 

Davey Inc keep it in the family, as young buzz director Vertex steps out from behind the camera under the skillful eye of Shane Davey!

"Vertex is one of the Marvell Crew with Double S and Shokka. They've done some blistering Westwood sessions and supported Dizzee at the Electric Proms a couple of weeks ago so it's definitely blowing up for those guys. Vertex directed their previous video and asked if I would be up for getting involved in the new one as they wanted something photographed guerilla style around north London. I heard the track, met the guys and loved the energy they have as a crew and their passion for music so I signed up.

We spent a chaotic day racing around shooting on a 60 year old vintage Bell & Howell Filmo 16mm camera which is brilliant for guerilla style shooting because, as well as being an indestructible piece of precision engineering, it is also a gorgeous antique so civilians actually like looking at it instead of complaining about obstruction or whatever minor quibble becomes the focus of their existence for an afternoon whenever they see a camera crew on the streets.

We had a fun day, shot some nice stuff and cut it together."

Vertex delivers the first verse by the way.

Based on Athlete frontman Joel Potts grandfather John, who recently passed away. He was a British Paratrooper in WW2 who fought and was badly wounded at the battle of Arnhem, 'Black Swan Song' is a real tribute and quite a personal project for both Joel and Mark.

The place is full of life, nature is flourishing and people still live and work around the power plant. There just happens to be a lot of radiation floating round'.

 

A beautiful piece of work, which further demonstrates why Dave is one of the sort after UK talents out there.

All hail The Lennox Brothers! 08/07/2009 13:23

 

Lee Lennox has teamed up his brother Wayne to form a new directing partnership aptly named The Lennox Brothers.

 

Lee says, “My brother has aways had an input on set, he’s been on all of my shoots either as a 1st Ad or just for his immense creative energy. It’s always been my aim to work with him for as long as i can remember… It was just a matter of time before we joined up to make the Lennox Brothers. On set it’s like having two brains, but one mind – like 6 foot Siamese twins. We think the same thoughts and speak the same comments… which is not surprising as we both emerged from the same nutsack.”

 

The first product of this partnership is this vid for Belgian band Ghinzu – a strangely alluring performance piece which sees the band assailed by impish black-painted fembots intent on ruining their world – like comely bikini-wearing gremlins.

I am personally thrilled to be responsible for representing OBM’s latest signing, Davey Inc. Davey Inc have been steadily building up an excellent reputation within the world of music videos, thanks to the talent of director Shane Davey together with producer Gail Davey.

Shane honed his talents as a director shooting a number of highly acclaimed experimental shorts and virals picking up a number of awards a long the way

His music video for Hey Negrita’s ‘Can’t Walk Away’ was nominated for the Offcuts experimental music video awards in April 07 and his video for Hundred Reasons’ ‘No Way Back’ was No.1 on the MTV2 Rock chart (as seen in pic above).

 

With a real sharp cinematic eye, great knowledge in shooting performance and fantastic conceptual ideas, we’re sure Shane’s success will continue to grow and we’re all looking forward to making it happen with Davey Inc in the weeks to come.

Jonnie Malachi signs with Between the Eyes 24/01/2008 12:47

 

We're all very excited to announce that Jonnie Malachi has now signed to Between the Eyes, since leaving his last home at Therapy films.

 

Jonnie has already kicked off 2008 in style, shooting H two O feat Platnum's 'What's It Gonna Be' for Ministry of Sound (video avaliable shortly). This huge bassline smash has already rocketed in at No.2 on Box Breakers above the Kaiser Chiefs and Beth Rowley. Tipped for chart success, this promo showcases some of Jonnie's trademarks: humour, glassiness and a real flair for narrative.

 

Jonnie's directing credits an off-the-wall comedic promo for the MOBO award winning rapper Sway. The dynamite track 'The Way we Go' is a collaboration by Sway and Jukey, the talented producer who has worked with The Gossip, Ian Brown and TheView. The track is blowing up in clubland, with a full fat release by Ministry of Sound scheduled for April. Look out for the 1950's 'public service announcement' video as some real comic characters get 'crunked' to some electro beats.

 

Jonnie's photography (see photographers) is also augmenting his creative portfolio, as he is currently working on the re-branding for some extremely high profile companies. As announced last year, here at OB we continue to successfully rep Jonnie for his stills photography.


Looking forward to a great year in 2008!!!

Jonnie Malachi joins our stills roster 13/11/2007 18:47

As part of OB's representation in stills photography, we're chuffed to welcome a fantastic talent to our roster in Jonnie Malachi.

 

Translating his quirky comedic filmic brain to his stills, he comes across as a compelling blend of Martin Parr and David LaChapelle. Powerful performances, masterful color manipulation and a passion for art direction and styling are trademarks of Jonnie's work.

 

Having shot recent POT NOODLE and BRANFLAKES campaigns, he is excited to carry on creating powerful, heavily conceptual images for Advertising Agencies.

 

His new portraits of MOBO award winning artist 'SWAY' (who he has also directed the music promo for) are being used as the cover art for his new album and Jonnie hopes to shoot many more strongly idea based PR campaigns and sleeve artwork for record labels.

 

Jonnie has also recently been involved as creative director for a new company, OLDBOY.TV, conceptualising and photographing all the elements for their new website, branding, logo and stationary.

 

From initial ideas on paper though to the high end finished piece, Jonnie is ready and raring to go....

 

Examples of his work can be seen under our photographers section, or for a more in depth look, check out his website by clicking here
