BTS: Clarins BeautyBAR

We spent one full on week filming for Clarins last month as they installed their brand new and exclusive BeautyBAR at John Lewis Oxford Street. Here you can enjoy a choice of six relaxing 30 minute beauty boosting and de-stressing treatments leaving you feeling fully refreshed and revitalised. Happy to say the BeautyBAR film was delivered in just two weeks and we’ll be sharing the final with you shortly. For now, here’s a look at the behind the scenes of the filming action.

BTS: Artegée

Artegée: A new interactive platform launching next month which will allow you to seamlessly view and discover the work of carefully selected artists and designers online.
Their mission: To create the first truly social selling platform for the world’s most talented independent artists and designers, revolutionising the way the arts are sold and supported online.
Ategée don’t believe the conventional ‘buy now’ features are a good fit for the arts; so with their unique ‘Speak to the Arts” feature, they give an invaluable opportunity to learn and share in their inspirations and ultimately build long-term relationships. You will be able to chat direct, negotiate, and make offers on their work!
Last week we had one day to film a 90 second video showing how users can interact with Artegée. Here are a few photos from behind the scenes. Final video coming soon.
