    The AA 360˚ VR hazard perception projectThis was a series of around 25 x 360˚ videos we created for the AA to be used as part of their 360˚ / VR hazard perception training app. I developed a bespoke, custom-made approach to capture and composit the 360˚ footage to meet the needs of a very specific brief.
  • Hyundai i30 N
    Hyundai i30 NThis was a project to publicise the release of the new Hyundai i30 N hot hatch in conjunction with Haymarket's PistonHeads website. Two films were made - "From Track To Road" (which featured members of the public testing out the i30 N on the picturesque roads of the Brecon Beacons in Wales) and "How It Makes You Feel" (which featured members of the public pushing the car to its limits on the the Anglesey Circuit, a challenging racetrack set on the coast of Anglesey overlooking the Irish Sea).
  • Tarja "Tears In Rain"
    Tarja "Tears In Rain"This was a music video for Tarja Turunen, formerly of the band Nightwish.

    Barclays Game-changing SmartBusiness Insights with Frank LampardThis video demonstrated how the right data insight can not only give you the edge in business, it can also help you win a penalty shoot-out against football legend Frank Lampard! A Barclays branch manager & Sunday league goalie Ali Samad, was chosen to have a penalty shoot out with a mystery footballer, which was revealed to be Frank Lampard - the two were kept apart during filming so the reveal was a genuine surprise. Ali used smart data insights to correctly guess which direction Frank would

    Uber x Manchester United: Destination UnitedIn 2018, Uber needed to activate their sponsorship of Manchester United, they approach Copa90, the world's leading football content agency to take the project forward and Destination United was born.

When there are statistics such as 99% of Manchester United fans will never go to Old Trafford, and that there
