Barclays Diversity Business Awards

One of our favourite projects at Shoot the Company is the Barclays Diversity Business Awards and 2018 is the sixth year that we’ve produced the video content for this celebratory global event. What a privilege to have the opportunity to tell the stories of all 18 nominees for the awards, filming in Hong Kong, Chennai, Pune, Liverpool, Glasgow, London, Hamburg and Leeds, to showcase the incredible range of dynamic people driving Diversity and Inclusion across Barclays.

Dove Men+Care

Shoot the Company have been busy working with Dove on various exciting projects this year and one in particular stands out because, this time, it’s aimed at the gentlemen. The films feature the Dove Men+Care range, promoting their popular 2in1 shampoo. We moved the demonstrations to become ‘backyard shed experiments’ proving how shampoo can keep your hair fresh and clean as well as strong and resilient – even whilst you pretend to plane the bedroom door or ‘organise your drill bits’ at the end of the garden.

Thank you Russia!

From Yuri Gazinsky’s opening goal for the hosts in their 5-0 demolition of Saudia Arabia to France’s thrilling victory over Croatia on Sunday in Moscow, it has certainly been a World Cup to remember. The greatest tournament ever? Some think so and the debate will rage on until 2022. For Shoot the Company it has been an honour and a privilege to be in Russia for the past six weeks shooting the 2018 FIFA World Cup Official Film. Our crews have captured some incredible images; now for the exciting part of telling the story all over again from a new perspective.

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Shoot the Company are delighted to have been chosen by FIFA as the production partner for the Official Film of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and the first of our fours crews landed in Moscow this week to begin shooting. As well as the Official Film we will also be producing additional documentary programming and online content throughout the tournament so forgive us if we are a little football obsessed over the coming months. Our favourite FIFA World Cup Official Films from the past are 1982 and 1986 and whilst we won’t have Zico, Maradona or Tardelli in ours, we will have a whole new generation of players and teams making history. Only 13 days to the big kick off!


As Liverpool and Real Madrid prepare for a potentially classic UEFA Champions League Final in Kiev tomorrow night, there is another football story thriving in Ukraine which is having a significant effect on the wider society. Shoot the Company travelled to Ivano-Frakivsk to meet former human-rights lawyer Oleksandr Fomichov, who runs the League of Tolerance charity which uses football to promote inclusion and to teach people about shared values with the aim of improving the lives of the community around him. With all eyes on Ukraine this weekend, there’s no better time to get the unifying message of League of Tolerance to the wider world.

This Is Me

Shoot the Company have teamed up with businesses across the north-west of the UK to launch ‘This is Me’ in the region, the first time the mental health awareness campaign has launched outside the capital. Manchester Airports Group, PWC, Sellafield, Barclays and United Utilities, along with football clubs and charities, have all collaborated to demonstrate to their employees that it is important to be open about mental health and to end the stigma of talking about it in the workplace. 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year and by 2030 the estimated cost of staff mental health related issues is set to rise to £32.7 billion. Get talking people!
