July and August see an upsurge @ The Look

I’ve been a tad slow on updating the blog over the last few weeks as we have been manic – which is great being that we’ve only just hit six months in business!

Firstly the F23 demo day and party were a massive success. We had some top DoPs down for the day including Nigel Walters BSC, John Fenner BSC, Andrew Speller, Mik Allen & Alex Melman among others. It was a great discussion about not only the Sony F23 HD camera, but also the industry in a wider context (see my earlier long opinion piece). At the party in the evening we were joined by Hollywood legends Chris Lebenzon & Peter Honess as well as some of our more local heavyweights from the film and commercials arenas – it was a great night with Mojitos getting drunk like crazy (pictures are on thelooklondon.com website)!

During July and August we’ve delivered over 120 VFX shots at 2k for feature film OUTPOST, directed by Steve Barker, edited by Chris Gill, post supervised by Steve Harrow and produced by Black Camel and Cinema One in association with Matador Pictures and Regent Capital. It was all hands on deck, with the eQ suite and its HD projector getting used daily in the final week for client approval of VFX shots.

July also saw us working with ad agency heavy-weights Mother. We were commissioned to conform, grade and online a 90 minute programme for a well known highstreet chain which will be given away in stores to millions – I cant give any more info away than that. Also, we had Discovery back in with a promo for one of their channels, quick grade and some compositing, all went down well. Finally we rounded the month off with a campaign for Eurosport through our great client DARE Digital.

Other highlights were working with The Editpool again doing a couple of HD trailers for cinema release, this time for ‘Mrs Ratcliffe’s Revolution’ & ‘Rise of the Footsoldier’.

I continue to focus my attention on delivering a high quality service and product to my clients, after all this work though I think an August break is well deserved!

Enjoy the Soho sun outside the pubs before the September rains kick back in……

Best wishes,
