2 GOLDS at New York Film Festivals
Wilder picked up two Golds and a Silver at the recent New York Film Festival for “Waiting for Conkers” & ‘ Sexy Tuesdays’. We will need to make the most of these wins as for the first time this year we decided not to enter the IVCA’s and instead put the cash saved towards a new short film.
Wilder have been ranked 10th in Televisual’s 2013 Top 50 survey of Uk Corporate Production Companies. Even better we are ranked 3rd overall in the prestigious Peer Poll.
Creative director Paul Gowers has moved on to set up his own production company called Buddy and all at Wilder wish him luck in his new venture.
CEOP First to a million
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, have released an interactive film focusing on the dangers of posting video content to sites like YouTube, highlighting how quickly things can spiral out of control and where they can get help if it does.
The film, created by Wilder and directed by Paul, follows a group of teens in their battle to be first to a million views of their increasingly outrageous films. Start the jouney here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqLFAYeYVbQ
London 2012 here at last!
Back in 2004, showjumping at Greenwich Park and beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade seemed like far flung fantasies. 8 years on it’s been fantastic to watch the promises made in London’s bid brought to life and with such great effect. Like everyone we're absolutely loving the Olympics and are proud to have played a small part in bringing them to London.

Building Soweto in W10
We're just completing production on a new brand film for Acountancy giants KPMG. A critical part of the film required filming in the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. When that proved impossible we did the next best thing and built a section of the hospital in Labroke Grove. It worked a treat and if only some loudmouth writing the news didn't give it away, no one would know the difference.
Saudi Aramco ‘Energy to the World’
After many months of filming across 3 continents and editing across 3 desks, we've finally finished our brand film for Saudi Aramco, the world leader in the production of petroleum based energy. Beautifully filmed by director Simon Baker and expertly co ordinated by Producer Greg Hobden.
