FILMMAKING

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

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

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

WSJ.CC  |  British Airways

In partnership with WSJ Custom Content we produced an 8 part series for the centenary of British Airways. A series of influential talent from Downton's Joanne Froggatt to Brit award winner Tom Walker, each shared their personal love letter to Britain in a unique form. Here Tom Walker shares his love letter object and the personal story behind it as we follow him in a AAA behind the scenes lead up to a live performance.

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 Content & Casual Films. The series picked up a gold Lovie award and the campaign reached 1Billion travellers with 3.1M interactions and a 54% bump in brand promoter score.

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.
