MVA UK Music Video Awards 09

Last week TRIMS’s Tom Lindsay won the Best Editing in a Video award for Oasis’ Falling Down promo – if you haven’t seen it check it out below…

Rather than letting it get to his head, he let WIZ, the director, pick up the award as he was having his eyebrows trimmed…

Coke Zero 00:00

Strangest and most eventful job of the year so far. Eddie the "actor" had swine flu and was quarantined by the Chinese authorities. The directors, fearful of a similar fate, fled the country. Oh and the camera equipment got nicked. We continued to shoot regardless and somehow managed to get the job in the bag. The trip culminated with Tracey Cooper and I singing Robbie Williams and Backstreet Boys to a room full of lesbians in a Shanghai Karaoke bar, which is something I'll never forget.

Directors: Karni & Saul @ Rokkit
Producer: Tracey Cooper
Editor: Dominic Leung
Agency: W+K Shanghai

O2 'Curiosity'

O2 was Shot all across Argentina over a blistering week and using a cast of three identical cats, a stunt unicyclist and a lot of fake snow.

Adam brings both humanity and a sense of wonder to the piece as well as a cameo on the mic.

The edit took place in Stockholm at the lovely post house Riviera.

It was a lot of fun and the whole team from production to client were really amazing helping to make a very special film.
