International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day everyone! To help Barclays celebrate and promote IWD, Shoot the Company have been producing a series of content to showcase their commitment to the HeForShe Campaign. Initiated by the UN, HeForShe is a global solidarity movement for people of all genders to promote a gender equal world. Now celebrating five years of involvement, Barclays are encouraging male colleagues to stand shoulder to shoulder with their female counterparts to promote equality. We couldn’t agree more!

UEFA #EqualGame – Turkey

Turkey international Baris Telli is one of the most remarkable and talented athletes we’ve ever had the pleasure of filming. As a boy, Baris lost his right leg in a road traffic accident but has never let that prevent him pursuing his dream of playing international football. Now one of the most decorated players in the World amputee game, Baris wants to challenge Ronaldo to see who can do the highest overhead kick. Consider the gauntlet thrown Cristiano!

McDonald’s Big Mac Bacon

What happens when you take the King of the Jungle, his long-suffering son, a Big Mac and two slices of bacon? Mayhem and disagreement to be perfectly frank. Shoot the Company have had a riot in the last few weeks helping the nation decide whether the new Big Mac Bacon is a violation or a victory. We’ve been shooting with celebrities and influencers across the UK and it seems that, if you hadn’t already noticed, the nation is divided! To B(acon), or not to B(acon), that is the question.

Hello 2019!

Too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year? Probably, in which case apologies for our tardiness. We’re blaming a busy January schedule for the delay as we’ve been planning shoots in Hong Kong and the US for Barclays whilst also filming across the UK for a new McDonald’s campaign which launches this week. We’ll keep you posted on that one. Pictured above is our crew in Ankara shooting in early January for UEFA with the amazing Turkey international amputee footballer Baris Telli…who (it goes without saying!) can easily do more keepy-ups than all of us at Shoot the Company put together.

Farewell 2018!

It feels like it was only yesterday that we were throwing snowballs thanks to the Beast from the East and now we’re nearing the end of 2018.

We began the year filming in one of our favourite shoot locations, the Research and Development labs of Unilever in Port Sunlight, experimenting with Dove Men + Care. A few months later we were bringing out our infamous tank to showcase the strength of Dove Super Conditioner.

It has been a busy year filming with Barclays and working across many of their business units. Our Producer/Director Archie Kalyana clocked up four countries in 10 days when we filmed stories in India, Singapore, the United States and the United Kingdom for World Multicultural Day. Alongside many other interesting projects we delivered 20 films for one our all-time favourite campaigns, The Barclays Diversity Business Awards.

Our football calendar didn’t have Winter or Summer break this year, it’s been nonstop. The season started in Barcelona filming with Barça’s top players for Betfair. We have travelled across Europe sourcing and shooting ten inspiring grassroots stories for the UEFA Equal Game campaign. We worked across three continents producing and filming for the FIFA Congress film. Then our crews went on to feel like locals in Russia after shooting for seven weeks to produce the FIFA World Cup Official Film.

Thank you to all our amazing clients and crew who have worked with us in 2018 and we look forward to creating more wonderful video content in 2019!

2018 FIFA World Cup Official Film

Whilst you’re slumped on the sofa digesting your fourth helping of Christmas pudding with brandy butter over the holiday season, please keep your eyes peeled for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Official Film in the TV schedules, which Shoot the Company have just delivered to FIFA. We spent an incredible summer travelling around Russia covering the tournament and our 80 minute film is also accompanied by 4 x 30 minute documentaries about the four semi-finalists. With Brazil, Australia, Spain, England, Russia and Croatia all represented in the Shoot the Company team, everyone can enjoy the pain and the glory of the summer all over again!
