UK offshore wind industry announces Supply Chain Review led by former McLaren Group CEO

Yesterday we were invited by RenewableUK to photograph a visit at FT Technologies’ facility in Surrey with a same day turnaround. Former McLaren Croup CEO Martin Whitmarsh was there to lead the review for The UK Offshore Wind Industry to create a clear Supply Chain Development Plan as part of its vision for 2030 which was announced last month.
The plan will set out how the industry can deliver £2.6bn in annual offshore wind exports by 2030 (from £0.5bn today) and support up to 27,000 high quality, well-paid jobs across the country.

Climate change is one of the biggest issues humanity faces and it’s great to have the opportunity here at JKP to see behind the scenes what is being done to help fight against it.

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.

eOne-kar

Great morning spent filming the Entertainment One exclusive Drama Preview 2016 at Picturehouse Central today. It was a fantastic opportunity to see the showcases for some very exciting and interesting new tv dramas that will be coming to our screens soon.

A quick vote round the JKP crew after the event and the all round first choice to watch went to Designated Survivor starring Kiefer Sutherland. Created by David Guggenheim it centres around a low-level cabinet member who is suddenly handed the presidency after a catastrophic attack during the State of the Union address kills everyone above him in the Presidential line of succession.
Other upcoming dramas showcased earlier today included You Me Her, Private Eyes, Foreign Bodies, Cardinal and Ransom.
It’s always great to be able to cover such interesting events and we look forward to seeing them when they are released!
