John Hillcoat We Salute You

Earlier this year, Tom Lindsay took his editing suite to the next level - a hot tropical jungle in Thailand. This was where the legendary John Hillcoat was shooting his latest commercial for National Lottery. Featuring the endearing and talented Nicholas Amer, a true 88 year old veteran, the spot is an affecting piece that wouldn't look out of place in a feature. Brilliant cut and sound edit too from Tom.

Shot by the highly acclaimed Robbie Ryan, it's a visually stunning feast featuring Hollywood swoonster Jake Gyllenhaal like you've never seen him before. You're going to want to watch it at least 3 times, maybe even 5!

Cobra 'Train'

Director Daniel Wolfe has once again delivered a visually stunning commercial, this time round for Cobra. It's filled to the brim with an eclectic mix of characters from hipsters to gurus, (all street cast of course), getting crunked up on a train journey. We think it's a beautifully crafted spot, effortlessly pieced together by Tom Lindsay. Plus it makes us thirsty and gives our shoulders a work out to the brilliantly original track, what more do you want?
