BELONGING THE TRUTH BEHIND THE HEADLINES

A selection of FILMS WE MADE EARLIER ...

BEAUTIFUL NOISE
Evelynia's belief that life is one "big, infinite creation" led her to leave her home in Germany to spend a year of creating in New York.  Now, 14 years later, she still finds herself in the city, yearning to return to Europe while wrapping her arms around her biggest creation yet: her new family.  Beautiful Noise looks into the lives of these young people as they manage American prejudices, steer through a volatile economy and create a beautiful, noisy life - one day at a time.

UNITE THE UNION

Unite asked us to help with campaigning to expose rip-off tipping practices in the hospitality industry. Two years ago, (May 2015) they turned the heat up on Pizza Express over the 8 per cent so-called 'admin fee' it was taking from staff tips paid on a card.  This film was a follow up after they won at Pizza Express! A campaign that sparked a media blitz. The huge public backlash forced many more restaurant chains to abandon their unfair tipping policies - it even prompted the government to act with the launch of its consultation.

UNITE THE UNION

Unite's community membership scheme brings together people from across our society.  Those not in employment are welcomed into the union family, adding another dimension to our strength in thousands of workplaces across the UK and Ireland - and they asked us to make an inspiring film to attract new members.
