Watch your speed on country roads

Following last year’s collaboration with SMARTS Communicate on the Scottish Government’s country roads campaign we’ve just completed a trilogy of hard-hitting films on the lasting trauma of fatal road accidents.

British Lions and Scottish International Stuart Hogg remembers his best friend Richard, whilst Firefighter Iain McGarry and Paramedic Tanya Ellis share their haunting experiencs of attending at the scene.

The target audience was young male drivers who account for three out of four fatalities on Scotland’s country roads.

The campaign has been a great success. Our previous Stuart Hogg film received 274k views and was broadcast to over 6 million during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. You can watch here

New home of the Scottish Open

We were invited by design agency Glowfish Creative to produce a promotional film for Dundonald Links – the new home of the Scottish Open. This championship course on the Ayrshire coast was designed by American golf architect Kyle Phillips.

The aim of the film is to portray Dundonald as an exceptional golfing experience in tune with the natural environment and played with the true spirit of the game. It is presented through the sensory experience of a single player as he plays a round here for the first time. The narrative captures the atmosphere, whets the appetite and gives a flavour of the undulating landscape, deep bunkers, challenging greens, and coastal habitat.

Alison Hunter, Marketing Manager at Dundonald Links said “We enjoyed working with James and are delighted with the end result. He captured Dundonald Links beautifully, in particular the camaraderie between player and golfer.”
