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!

BTS: Cravendale Commercial

BTS Cravendale Kar-1

Last month we were approached to film a brand new commercial for Cravendale. Having received the brief and budget, our first point of call was bringing on our awesome Director Will Kenning who we knew would be perfect for this project.
After securing our Director the next priority was sorting out the kit we wanted to shoot on – the RED Dragon shooting at 6K through Zeiss Ultra Primes. Having formed a great relationship with the guys over at Shootblue we soon had that covered.
All that was left were the creative meetings, castings, location scouting, recces, set dressing, scripts and booking the rest of the crew! Before we knew it, two weeks later we were on set and filming day 1 of 2 for the Cravendale commercial.
Soon to be released, here’s a look behind the scenes of the two day shoot, plus an extra little clip from filming: video

Attended by over 250 people from Clarins across the globe it was a big task, but with a strong crew it was a fantastic shoot and here are a few photos from behind the scenes.
