Barclays FA WSL

At Shoot the Company we are always looking to create something new. Something that pushes us to think outside of the box. With the Barclays FA Women’s Super League turning 10, it was time to both acknowledge the past and look forward. With a roar from grime legend​ Lioness to push us on, our vision of the project took the style of a music video with a twist. We used projected imagery to fuse our artist’s lyrics with the greats from the first 10 years of the Barclays FAWSL. From shoot day to social media post all within 72 hours, the team used clever camera and post-production techniques to capture lightning in a bottle. Working with the FA and Lioness we are very proud of what we have created. ‘Here’s to 10 more’.

UEFA – Cleaner Air, Better Game

When we were approached by UEFA to create a film to promote their latest sustainability initiative, everyone at Shoot the Company was very excited to be involved. Aligning closely with our own environmental values, it’s the little steps (quite literally) that can make all the difference.

‘Cleaner Air, Better Game’ is built on a very interesting creative concept that involves a variety of visual elements. Hand drawn animated graphics support a plethora of self-shot and archive materials, collaging together in a contemporary vibe with a clear message. The vibrant sound design also packs a real punch.

We are very proud to help launch this campaign and we hope it gives everyone that little push to help breathe life back into football.

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
