Metamorphosis by Tell No One

Ross Hallard's latest edit for the wonderful Directing duo, Tell No One, is a haunting short film based on Ovid's classical poem promoting the Titian exhibition at the National Gallery. Commissioned by Credit Suisse and featuring Anna Friel, it's a beautifully shot spot that's very bankable (couldn't help myself).

Directors: Tell No One at Skin Flicks
Producer: Chris Massey
Agency: Euro RSCG, London
Editor: Ross Hallard

Paul Hardcastle recently did his regular disappearing act to LA, whipping out a second storming Nike commercial, directed once again by his partner in crime, Adam Berg. We love Adam Berg so much that we have this beautiful painting of him framed at Trim.

oh and here's the ad:

The Trimmers recently got their teaching shoes on and headed down to the Nike 1948 store for a week of creative workshops with the Flyknit Collective. Alongside other Flyknit Collective innovators, ( Grace Ladoja, Charlie Dark, Tyrone Lebon & Scratcha DVA) Team Trim got busy helping the young creators cut 14 x 1 minute films exploring the theme of Lightness. The films will premier at an event in Aske Gardens in August.

Chris Clark 'Black Stone'

The Vikings have raped and pillaged their way to Trim once more, this time for a new venture into music videos. Edited by Paul Hardcastle, the Tarkovskyesque film is a haunting, wintry tale that perfectly resonates the mournful song. Lets hope the Vikings give us some more promos.

Who knew a talking scotch egg could freak so many people out? Dominic Leung is becoming quite good at controversy, what with his Phones4U ad and now this quirky Ambrosia spot directed by The Peloria Brothers. Best reactions can be found HERE.
