Mattias Nyberg’s latest commercial for Pizza Hut is directed by Michael Clowater (Smuggler). It has just the right amount of humour and attitude to make it memorable and charming.

Pizza Hut is the latest comedic spot Mattias has added to his ever growing body of work. He recently shot the #PleaseNotThem Lotto campaign with Jeff Low at Biscuit Filmworks, as well as the hilariously stylised Tenna Men, again with Jeff Low. View Mattias’s full reel HERE.

Fresh from its North American Premiere at Palm Springs Int’l Film Festival, the Hollywood Reporter reviews Ben Charles Edwards’ feature SET THE THAMES ON FIRE, giving positive mentions to both DOP Sergio Delgado and Production Designer James Hatt.

Hollywood Reporter: REVIEW – “Production designer James Hatt’s storybook backdrops mix romance and nightmare: A huge moon floats above the East End grunge. Recalling films as disparate as M*A*S*H and Airplane!, absurd public announcements, in a cheery female voice, punctuate the gloom as Art and Sal dream of escape. Director of photography Sergio Delgado (whose previous credits include first assistant camera on Pan’s Labyrinth and Che) accentuates artifice over realism. The score, which includes new compositions by screenwriter Al Joshua and prominent use of Satie’s sublime Gnossienne No. 1, similarly eschews naturalism. Throughout the film, the artsiness only intermittently transcends self-consciousness.”

Twinings

STRIPELAND are Ben Gerlis, Sean Hogan & Ben Austin, a Production Design collective working as one.

Most recently they collaborated with directing duo Tell No One (Good Egg) on a spot for Kinfolk which involved creating a 30ft silk parachute that forms the shape of a cube and then a house whilst collapsing to the ground.

KINFOLK & Making of HERE.

A recent epic TWININGS commercial directed by Parabella (Blink Ink) that involved multiple set builds allowed Stripeland to create a world out of paper teabags that features both full scale and miniature set builds. Thousands of paper teabags were scored, folded, glued, painted and placed in situ by an army of model-makers to create vibrantly colourful and detailed sets. Twinings was shot using stop-motion and the multi-plane animation technique pioneered by Walt Disney in the 1930s…

STRIPELAND‘s other featured work includes DROPBOX for Johnny Kelly (Nexus) and multiple MITSUBISHI IDENTS directed by Bugsy (Good Egg) for Channel 4 that utilise in-camera optical illusions…

Nothing is what it seems.
