I recently got to team up, once again, with those gentleman travellers and purveyors of funny, The General Assembly. We made a new TV commercial for Tesco’s BlinkBox service, which is currently to be seen on high rotation on a TV near you. Campaign Live covered it here. Check it out. It still makes me laugh…
Wiz Take Two
Here’s another Wiz Khalifa video that I cut for the illustrious Mr Ryan Hope. Currently cruising at around five and a half million views on YouTube.
Blinked and missed
It’s been a busy start to 2013. And so I’ve missed posting some things that came out this year.
Firstly, there was Ryan Hope’s third promo for Alpines’ amazing new track, ‘Lights’. We finished the video off just before Christmas and its since been released to great acclaim. It was in Video Static’s best of the month for January, it was a Vimeo Staff Pick,it’s on more blogs than you can shake a stick at (which I assume is a lot) and it’s been getting some celebrity love, with Rankin and The XX sharing it. You can watch it on the Music page or click here…
Next up is another Ryan Hope video for London buzz band, London Grammar. It’s a bit epic as it features two tracks from the band’s debut EP; “Metal & Dust’ and ‘Hey Now’. Go to the Music page or click here.
Lots more landing in the next few weeks…
General Assembly's Hypno-Christmosis
The boys took a group of Diesel shoppers and had them hypnotised to believe that they were five years old, waking up on Christmas morning. And then they just messed with them. Check out the results below…
Remember Wiz Khalifa
We’ve just delivered the new Wiz Khalifa ‘Remember You’ video for Atlantic records. Directed by Ryan Hope out of DNA LA, it’s a pretty different vibe for a hip hop video. It premiered on Pitchfork.tv yesterday. Check it out.
Harry Redknapp’s back in the game! I recently cut a series of commercials for Sky Sports featuring the legendary gaffer starting off a new job. Watch out for them on the site in the next couple of weeks, but you can see them on YouTube in the meanwhile.
Directing duo Jo Tanner and Mark Howard helmed the spots for agency Us London and Veronica Saez handled the production for Love Hate.
White Light is live
So George’s video is live and seems to be getting a pretty good response, with everyone from The Guardian to Grazia covering it. There’s a nice little piece about the post production up on Prime Focus’ website, here. Also, check out director Ryan Hope’s interview in the excellent 1.4 blog, here.
It’ll be up on my site later in the week, but in the meantime, here’s the YouTube link. Check it out.
George Michael, you tease.
We’ve just delivered a new video for George Michael. It’s for the lead single from his new album, directed by Ryan Hope through Colonel Blimp for Island. It will be released on July 17, but in the meantime, here’s a little teaser…
T.I. loves this life, apparently.
Alabama rapper T.I. is out of jail and has a new album out. Ryan Hope went to LA to direct the video for new single ‘Love This Life’ through DNA LA and Atlantic Records. I did the chopping. The YouTube kids seem to like it as it’s raced to almost two million views in double quick time. You can check out the results here.
Shiny new website
Hi. Welcome to my shiny new website. It works on iThings and is much easier to update (which hopefully means that I will.) It’s also full of shiny new work that I’ve done with the likes of Blink, Rokkit and Luscious International, amongst others. Have a look around!
I’m hanging around Twitter as well these days. Follow me on @RyanBoucherEdit. It may be sporadically interesting. Or not. Still working out those hashtag things…
