Hi Leanne,

Here is some relevant work we thought you would like! >>

Meet Phil Kingston, an 82 year old superhero who’s been arrested 8 times in the last four months for good reason. We met Phil Kingston out on the streets (seemingly his native habitat), and felt we had to capture his irrepressible energy and important message.

Phil formed the group ‘Grandparents for a safe earth’ which is a bit like his own ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ with other elders who want to ensure their grandchildren inherit a hospitable planet, before teaming up with Extinction Rebellion for a string of protests.

The video clocked up over 500,000 organic views and encouraged urgent conversation about protest, mobilising, and protecting the future of our planet.

We got the Internet buzzing about fruit tea when we launched this campaign for Taylors that focussed on an issue we knew their audience was passionate about. Sustainable food and bee conservation. We created the strategy, and brought in collaborators from reading University and The Bumblebee conservation trust to bring research and legitimacy. The end result was a film that clocked up 2.2 million views, 23,000 shares and a whole hive of media coverage including The Telegraph & The Metro. We even got a hat tip from Greenpeace.

The unsung heroes of the workplace were about to get their proper dues when we got together with Yorkshire Tea to respect, indeed ‘bless’, the tea-makers selflessly brewing the communal tea rounds up and down the country.

Comedian Chris Turner picked up the mic and together with Yorkshire Tea’s own brass band and a specially customised low-rider tea trolley dropped some beats and teabags.

Following our two previous films for Hackett London, we took some of the top skydivers in Europe to Portugal to attempt to mix a cocktail in freefall whilst immaculately attired in Hackett’s splash and crease proof suits.

Everything in the film happened for real (apart from a little topping up for the shaker before pouring, due to spillage on the way down). Filmed in 4K video, we pushed the limits of skydiving camerawork by attaching a far larger camera to the head of the cameraman than usual, then proceeded to throw him and the team out of a plane 14 times in Southern Portugal.
