Wayne’s World of Fathering
Wayne with his son Ciyrhus.
We’ve recently completed a series of 8 films with the COI for the Department for Children, Schools and Families. The films encourage parents to become more involved in their children’s education and are specifically targeted at audiences identified as hard to reach, including young parents, disabled parents and parents with English as a second language. Here’s one example, an inspiring story about a young dad called Wayne and his son Ciyrhus.
The Ripple Effect
The official Ripple movie poster.
Our short film Ripple has won 2 more awards. Best Short Film at the Mexico International Film Festival and Best Acting at the MCM Filmfest in the Netherlands. That makes 9 trophies in total. Next stop on the festival tour is the Puerto Rico International Short Film Festival at the end of July. For more info about Ripple go to www.ripplefilm.com or try www.shortfilmcentral.com.
Is Crime Getting Better or Worse in London?
Animation by Sim Tennant.
Another film for the COI, this time for the London Criminal Justice Board. Using animation designed and directed by Sim Tennant, the film dispels many of the myths surrounding London’s crime figures and informs the public about the role of the different Criminal Justice agencies. It was fun to make and hopefully fun(ish) to watch.
Luxury Lingerie in High Def
Wilder have invested in the amazing Canon 5D, a stills camera that shoots HD moving imagery. The 35mm lenses help produce beautiful results as shown by this test film for Myla lingerie filmed by Mike Gosbee. Wilder also used the 5D as a 2nd camera on our recent films for the DCSF. The camera will allow us to offer great value to clients on jobs that benefit from the Canon’s incredible portability and image quality.
Should Rugby Sevens Be An Olympic Sport?
We think so. Wilder have recently updated our award winning film for the IRB including new footage shot in India by Director Simon Baker. The film features Mangesh Chavan, a 13 year old boy from the Mumbai slums alongside rugby stars such as Springbok’s winger Bryan Habana and ex England captain Lawrence Dallaglio. The film will be shown to the IOC as part of a campaign to make Rugby Sevens an Olympic sport.
