We won!

We’re very proud to announce that Shoot the Company has won two awards this month for our work with UEFA on ‘OUTRAGED: Football Tackles Discrimination’. The film, which has been airing all this week on Sky Sports One and Main Event, scooped Best Social Justice Film at the New York International Film Awards and Best Documentary at Oniros film awards. No trips allowed to The Big Apple at the moment to pick up the silverware of course but we’re chuffed to bits nonetheless.

UEFA – OUTRAGED

In partnership with UEFA, Shoot The Company are delighted to announce the release of ‘Outraged’, a feature length documentary that tackles discrimination in football.
Featuring #PaulPogba, #MeganRapinoe, #JoseMourinho, #PernilleHarder and many other giants of the world game, we’ve travelled across Europe and beyond to explore attitudes to Racism, Homophobia, Sexism and Refugee Inclusion in football, and to ask, what more can be done by everybody to eradicate hate from the game?
It was an honour to be chosen by UEFA to produce such a prestigious and groundbreaking documentary. Watch the full film below and we look forward to everyone joining the debate to help remove discrimination from the game we love.

Barclays – Diwali

Happy Diwali everyone! With social distancing restrictions in place, this year we created two films for Barclays to celebrate Diwali, one featuring senior leaders and the other featuring members of the Asian Professional Forum. Both were centred around celebrating safely during the 2020 Diwali festival. One of the films was a self-shot compilation of Tik-Tok style transitions showcasing work persona to Diwali persona with participants creating their own transformations to showcase their Diwali celebration – the creativity and enthusiasm was amazing. दिवाली शुभकामना संदेश

Autumn update

Despite the restrictions we’re all working under at present, Shoot the Company are having a very busy end to the year with new projects underway in Qatar, Belgium, Germany and the UK. With travel not always possible, we’re rolling out innovative, remote Directing technology (more to follow later) allowing us to produce shoots and interviews anywhere in the world from the comfort of Shoot the Company HQ. You can’t beat face-to-face interaction of course and we love the opportunity to film abroad but at the moment we’re having to be resourceful. To lift the spirits, here is an autumnal picture of a New Forest piglet, let out to eat the acorns and sporting some StC branding on his back. Stay safe everyone!

FIFA Rival Rewind – Klinsmann V Lineker

What were you up to 30 years ago today? For football fans everywhere, one of the most memorable FIFA World Cup tournaments of all time was reaching fever pitch. As Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma echoed around the world, West Germany and England were going head to head to reach the World Cup Final. As part of #WorldCupAtHome, Shoot the Company and FIFA have teamed up to take you back to Italia ’90 and with a little help from Jurgen Klinsmann and Gary Lineker, Rival Rewind offers a unique insight into a very special night in Turin. By the way, if anyone knows what moisturiser Jurgen and Gary use please pass on the details. They look virtually the same as they did in the Stadio Delle Alpi!
