New year, new decade. What better way to start off the new year than by introducing James Kar’s new 2020 DOP showreel. Here’s to 2020!
We are really pleased to be able to share this artistic performance piece filmed last year with Director James Cannon, featuring contemporary ballet dancer Eloise Hymas.
Filmed on location at the Jubilee Pool in Penzance, Cornwall we had the challenge of working against the natural elements of the weather in this beautiful outdoor location right next to the sea.
Director James Cannon did an incredible job of bringing his vision for this artistic piece alive and it was an absolute pleasure to work on this project.
Director – James Cannon
DOP – James Kar
AC – John Gogarty
Production Assistant – Sam Reeves
Colour – Samantha Day at Studio Private
Score – James LeRouge & Rob Taliesin Owen
When a procession of Norman soldiers escort a group of prisoners through the depths of the forest, they are ambushed by a band of bloodthirsty thugs. The Normans routed and shown no mercy, a captive minstrel manages to trade his life for a song. Composed on the spot, he promises his attackers immortality through the ages. But sometimes legends are born by accident, and history can play a game of Chinese whispers with the truth.
Shot over one weekend in Langley Park Forest – The Legend of Bob Leonard is the latest short film produced by Samantha Grieves with writer/director Will Kenning and DOP James Kar.
Excited to announce that it is currently beginning its journey on the festival circuit so check it out if you can! Visit for more info.

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.

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!
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, for this we used the best equipment and furniture for kids, and you can view the brands page for more information about this. 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 😉
