Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from JKP ⛄

merry-christmas-newsletter
Merry Christmas everyone!

What a year it’s been… We can’t quite believe how quickly it’s gone but it has been one absolutely amazing year. Starting the year off in Vegas we picked up an award for one of our commercials and it’s simply been one awesome project after another; from filming interviews with David Bailey and Es Devlin to photographing Tim Peake & Tim Kopra as they completed their Principia UK post-flight tour as well as shooting commercials for Cravendale and Tesco to name a few.
Not to forget adding the Sony FS7 to our kit meaning we can now shoot 4K and slow mo up to 240 frames per second!
We’ve also managed to fit in a short film passion project this year with over 30 cast and crew…plus a couple of horses. We’ll be hitting the film festival circuit with this next year so watch this space.

Interview: Es Devlin

Earlier this year we met and filmed an interview with Es Devlin on behalf of MediaStorm. The recipient of this year’s WSJ. Magazine 2016 Innovators Award in the field of Design, she is largely considered the most pre-eminent stage designer in the world.
Having worked with some of the greatest artists of our time, including Adele, Beyoncé and Kanye West, Devlin uses design to create “gestures” on stage that evoke the spirit of her clients.

A truly deep commitment to her craft, you can easily see why Devlin deserved the 2016 Innovators Award. She gave us an inspirational insight into her thoughts and processes and we were really fascinated by how her designs transpire through the different pieces that she creates.
Her sense of responsibility to her audience with what she is creating is something that really resonated with us here at JKP and it was a real pleasure to be able to meet and film her interview earlier this year.

Highlighting both her impact in design and the brilliance of creating what are essentially memories check out her interview below:

Es Devlin has spent 20 years investigating some of the most important stagecraft of the last two decades. From Wagner to Beyonce, Devlin has created stage design that expands upon the core ideas of each performance regardless of genre.

JKWF: Selina & Nick’s Trailer

Our beautiful wedding couple Selina and Nick chose to celebrate their day more as a festival than a traditional wedding. With every detail carefully planned, they had everything from marshmallows to tattoos, from giant photo booth to outdoor cinema! It was a truly wonderful day and an honour to capture their special day, so we are very excited to present the trailer for their wedding! Selina and Nick you are both wonderful people and we wish you every happiness for the future. Congratulations!

Portfolio Update: Infiniti QX50 BTS Commercial

At the beginning of last year, we were flown out to LA to capture the official behind the scenes of the filming of the Inifiniti QX50 commercial for China – filmed by DOP Phedon Papamichael ASC and Directed by Juame Collet-Serra.
An amazing shoot set over 5 days, there was a lot to capture. This week we revisited the photos and have now added a selection to go alongside the video on our portfolio.

Cravendale: Kids Pub

They say never work with kids, but after spending two days filming with 12 kids aged between 8 and 12, they proved they can be a very professional bunch. Here’s the full version of a recent commercial we shot for Cravendale featuring some very grown up kids in a Cravendale pub. Ahhh, it’s a hard life 😉
