Earlier this year we shot a video for Hoka One One as they were due to release a new line of racing shoes called Pro2Lite “PROtection, PROpulsion”.

The softer and firmer sections of foam are joined by a tongue and groove construction so not a totally sudden shift in firmness across the entire interface between the two.

BTS: Elemis Starflower Fields

BTS-Elemis
This time last week we were on a farm in Essex filming for skincare company ELEMIS.
Commissioned to film some of the key ingredients they use in their products, we were focusing on the Starflower, Camelina and Echium flowers.
All grown in the UK they are harvested and pressed for their oils:
Starflower oil – richest natural source of gamma linolenic acid which promotes good skin health by helping to maintain skin metabolism.
Camelina oil – rich in the Essential Fatty Acid Omega-3 fatty which helps protect and nourish skin.
Echium oil – rich in all three Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3, 6 & 9 meaning it has exceptional skin nourishing and calming properties.
Overall it was a great day filming, even if we did have to get up close and personal with the honeybees at work..!
