JAMIE DELANEY X BOSIDENG

Posted September 28, 2012

Jamie was recently asked to direct the brand film to launch mens fashion label Bosideng, who opened their flagship store in London last month. It marks the first foray of a major Chinese brand into the high street market – and we were delighted to receive the brief that represented fashion, the wild outdoors and the brand’s symbolic birds of prey.

The result is a cinematic, sweeping visual piece that took us to brooding landscapes of Kerry and allowed us the chance to film some majestic birds up close. A huge thanks to design agency Mammal and marketing agency RSM for the chance to do something so cool.

JAMIE X KID KARATE

Posted September 19, 2012

Jamie’s latest music video for up and coming act Kid Karate features pro Irish skater Keith Walsh and was filmed in Dublin’s Darndale in August. It’s a┬ávisceral grungy ode to a band who have been called one of the best live performances in the country. There’s even a petrol bomb to send it off. Ready set GO.

A massive thanks to Keith Nally, DOP Arthur Mulhern, editor Rob Hegarty as well as Aine Casey and Allen Sillery at post-house Screen Scene for their invaluable help.

ROSS McDONNELL X HAVEN HAITI

Posted September 17, 2012

Between shooting stills in Afghanistan and filming a documentary in Pakistan, Ross also just completed a 30 second ad with Antidote for the Haven Partnership, an Irish charity working in Haiti.

The key issues the charity focuses on are water, shelter and education, so along with ad agency Red Dog a campaign was created to put things in perspective for Irish viewers. Ross and the Antidote team spent 4 days in Haiti, working from Port au Prince and other nearby towns to get in and document people’s stories and the conditions being faced there. It was a truly unique trip, witnessing some of the world’s poorest places, but also experiencing the pride and generosity of the Haitian people.

The tail end of our trip also collided with the arrival of Hurricane Isaac, which meant airport closures and a few more days on the ground until it passed! The finished piece is here.

Place To Gather

JAMIE X CRAFTS COUNCIL

Posted September 12, 2012

New Antidote director Jamie Delaney has been hard at work on several new projects which we can’t wait to tell you about! In the meantime here’s his first with Antidote, A Place To Gather, a 5 min documentary for the Crafts Council of Ireland.

Setting out to tell 5 different stories about Irish ‘makers’ from Donegal to Cork, Jamie had the opportunity to cover a range of beautiful places and also put the miles and miles of Irish tarmac to the test. The result is a textured, abstract feel for Ireland, its people and the beauty of its crafts.

The piece is part of the London Design Festival and will be viewed at a specially commissioned CCOI exhibition (Redchurch St in Shoreditch if you fancy popping down). The film will also sit in the EU Parliament foyer as part of Ireland’s EU presidency in 2013. Thanks to CCOI, Keith Nally, Jonathan Legge from Makers & Brothers and Garrett Pitcher from Indigo & Cloth.
