Presets 'Ghosts'

A soaring anthem recently thumped through Trim HQ when LA based director Abteen Bagheri partnered with Leila Sarraf for a spot of Persian power on the Presets comeback track 'Ghosts'. The stunningly shot video features ethereal teen divers floating through the air, a powerful echo of the Olympics and homage to Leni Riefenstahl's 1930's Olympia.

O2 / Nike+ 'The Circle'

Back in May we had the pleasure of working with (whatup)AG Rojas (& producer Shirley O'Connor) on a hush hush project. Now the secret is out and O2 / Nike+ have launched Priority Sports. Featuring an omnipresent blue circle and an authentic blend of cool kids and olympic athletes, AG has created something both intimate and epic. More crucialy, AG passed the Peanut test and the two became fast friends.

Major Lazer 'Get Free'

As you can imagine, we hear a lot of music at Trim, but this years sweetest sounds drifted out of Tom's suite when SoMe was in town to cut Major Lazer's 'Get Free' video. Captured with SoMe's trademark "Effortless Vibes" lens, the video is a surprisingly melancholic take on Jamaican dancehall. See if you can spot Beenie  Man rocking his new Sheikh look. Right who's up for some daggering?

Guinness "Paint The Town Black"

Daniel Wolfe & Dominic Leung have teamed up once again, this time to tackle the rich legacy of Guinness ads. This "Wolfian" update was filmed on location in Transylvania with a cast of 350 locals and 2000kg of black goo. Beautifully shot by by AndrĂ© Chemetoff and energetically soundtracked by Fanfare Ciocarlia, the film tells the story of a town that paints itself black in celebration of Arthur's Day. Here we proudly present the directors cut.
