ROAM AWARD WINNER (AWE)

UNBEKNOWN is a short poetic reflection on the nature of travel and the importance of real human connection.

Seeing Shapes is an agile collective of adventurous and award-winning, freelance filmmakers.

We believe that great storytelling is about unabated curiosity, a love of the unknown and an instinct for authentic human connection.

 

We collaborate with brands, agencies, artists and charities to help unfold their most compelling stories in original ways.

 

Matt Farman and Kieran Hodges are the lead filmmakers at Seeing Shapes.

Both are experienced directors, DPs, and adventure filmmakers who work both collaboratively and independently.

SKATE AID

Skate Aid  |  Uganda Skateboard Union  |  Kieran Hodges Films

Once upon a time in the Kitintale slums of Kampala, Uganda local visionary Mubiru Jackson saw people flying on TV. They were skateboarders. This inspired his lifelong dream of bringing skateboarding – and all it can teach us about life, resilience and commitment – to his local community.  This is the trailer for the documentary Kieran Hodges and I shot for the charity supporting his dream, Skate Aid.

CONNECTING CULTURES

NATGEO•WSJ

National Geographic  |  Star Alliance  |  WSJ Custom Studios  |  Casual Films

From Muay Thai in Bangkok's backstreets, hiking across rooftops in Stockholm and Arctic adventures in northernmost Canada, through to drumming at the Gathering of Nations festival in New Mexico and bareback horse racing in the mountains of Georgia.  I think it's fair to say we enjoyed shooting this one for WSJ Custom Studios & Casual Films.

The importance and value of the simple things in life often get forgotten. In Pai E Filho (Father and Son) we are reminded to enjoy the things we have and the family we have to share them with.
