One of our annual autumn highlights at Shoot the Company is the Barclays Diversity Business Awards and 2017 is the 5th year in a row that we have produced the video content for this inspiring event. As always it was a real honour to tell the stories of all 18 nominees for the awards, filming in Chennai, New York, Delaware, Leeds, Liverpool, Cardiff, Manchester and London, to showcase a wide variety of dynamic people driving Diversity and Inclusion across Barclays.

And the winner is…


Shoot the Company are delighted to announce that UEFA #EqualGame was last night awarded the 2017 International Olympic Committee Grand Prize at the Sportel Awards in Monaco. Judged by a panel of high-profile sports and media personalties, the competition rewards the most beautiful sports videos of the year and this specific award was presented to #EqualGame as it best embodies Olympic values. Peter Klomp, Head of Corporate Comms at UEFA received the award from Prince Albert of Monaco (Beautifully groomed beard Peter!) and Shoot the Company are very proud that the hard work and commitment that has gone into producing #EqualGame has been recognised with such a prestigious honour.

Autumn 2017 update


Look, a gratuitously cute picture of a baby fox to represent the mellow drift into Autumn. No ‘sitting on a half reap’d furrow sound asleep’ for Shoot the Company I’m afraid, we’re far too busy. With crews shooting in Rio, Trieste, Barcelona, Skopje, Manchester and London in the next few weeks it’s going to be a hectic run up to Christmas; and on top of that we’ve got to make time for trick or treating, fireworks and stirring the Christmas pudding.



UEFA #EqualGame

After a year in development and production, Shoot the Company will be settling down with a celebratory cuppa in front of the UEFA Champions League coverage this evening to watch the first broadcast of our 30″ TV Ad. Featuring grassroots and elite players from across Europe, we have worked very closely with UEFA to develop the documentary-style creative approach which best communicates the #EqualGame message of inclusion, authenticity and openness and brings all levels of the European football community closer together. Our level is less ‘stylish Pogba dab’ and more in line with walking footballer Eddie Thomas from Wales.

Dove – Environmental Defence

Dove Blog - 3

Shoot the Company’s most recent collaboration with the Dove team went live in India and China last month, explaining the benefits for hair of using Dove Environmental Defence shampoo in pollution intense cities. Featuring laboratory-proven experiments to simply illustrate that up to 100% of pollution damage can be reversed, we had a fun few days on set with our real Dove women, Samantha and Ana, who took to being on camera for the first time like total pro’s.

UEFA #EqualGame

Threesome 800x

We are proud to have produced the new UEFA #EqualGame film, which was launched in Monaco. Featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba and Ada Hegerberg, #EqualGame promotes diversity, inclusion and accessibility in football. The film will debut next month and was presented by UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin, Paul Pogba and Merthyr Town FC walking footballer Eddie Thomas. The highlight of the day was Eddie presenting The President with a Merthyr Town FC tie, we look forward to seeing him wear it soon.
