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!

Red Bull – Wings For Life

A feel-good story to lift the spirits at this difficult time for everyone. Whilst the RedBull Wings For Life event had to be cancelled earlier this month due to coronavirus, we know that that won’t stop Aaron Baker from grabbing life with both hands and preparing for next year’s race. A former professional motocross athlete, Aaron broke his neck and sustained a spinal cord injury in 1999 which left him as a quadriplegic with doctors telling him that he would never walk again. Click on the link below to see how wrong they were! Shot in February this year before the pandemic broke, Aaron’s zest for life is certainly a tonic and an inspiration as we battle Covid-19 together. Stay well everyone and a pleasure to meet you Aaron!

2018 World Cup Official Film: Now on YouTube!

As the whole world comes to terms with self-isolation as we battle coronavirus together, it’s the perfect time to reflect on happier times for humanity. To help everyone through, Shoot the Company’s FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia: Official Film has been released on YouTube this week and the memories of Mbappe, Dzuyba and Modric are certainly lifting our spirits. England fans singing ‘Don’t Take Me Home’ may seem a long time ago and slightly contradictory to our current instructions but hopefully soon we’ll all be watching football together again. Stay safe and healthy everyone.

CORONAVIRUS

 

To all of our clients, staff, partners and friends: Today we have decided to close our London office for the next few weeks as everybody around the world comes together to tackle the spread of coronavirus. Despite the new working practices it is very much business as usual at Shoot the Company. Our staff are now working remotely and our Post-production department are all plumbed into our central editing system from the comfort of their own homes working on edits and animations.  Stay safe and healthy everyone and please contact us by e-mail or mobile with any enquiries. Best wishes from everyone at Shoot the Company.

Mac It Better

What happens when you take four celebrities, a lobster, a chicken, a steak, a pot of McDonald’s special sauce and a healthy pinch of competitiveness? In a word, cheating! The Big Mac has been around since 1967 but only now have McDonald’s started selling individual portions of the legendary ingredient. For Big Mac devotees, every meal tastes better with a serving of special sauce, even if Toff, Stevo, Jack and Charlotte still need to work on their presentation skills.
