Over the last month we’ve been busy with a very special film for a very special cause.
Arsenal FC’s Charity of the Season is Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and as such, Arsenal players, directors and staff will be donating a day’s wages to help raise funds for the cause, as well as dedicating it’s upcoming clash with Chelsea to the charity.
As a way to mark the occasion and encourage donations, we produced a short film. We convinced some of Arsenal’s star players to ditch the pitch for a day, don furry animal mascot costumes and appear in a video campaign for the charity. Even Arsene Wenger manages a star appearance!
The film was written, produced and directed in-house and we’re extremely happy to have been able to give our time to this very worthwhile cause.
Take a look at it now and donate a little contribution of your own at www.beagoonerbeagiver.org.
Our ranks have swelled just a little bit more in the last week…
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Phil Teer to our family as Strategy Director. After many years at St Luke’s where he lived through the dramatic rise of one of the most mould-breaking agencies ever to live and breathe in this city, Phil left earlier this year to pursue his own projects. After a brief courtship, Phil arrives in Great Pulteney St ready to create another forward-thinking creative agency story with Brothers and Sisters…hoorah!
Our creative director, Steve Shannon, has just run a half marathon in aid of our friends in Mali. However, this was no ordinary marathon… Oh no… Steve ran the whole 13.1 miles in Dehli, India. He battled a mean 30 degree heat and the odd bollywood star to complete the run in great time. Get in! Mention must also be made of the most epic effort that went into getting Steve dressed for the big day… The Shannon was supposed to run in a specially made, custom designed running outfit that stylist friend Minty had made for him. Unfortunately the postal strike meant that come the day of departure Steve was still without kit! Despite gallant efforts to rush the outfit down the M40 from Warwick (this time thwarted by a horrendous pile up) he admitted defeat and boarded the plane without it. So, a bit of fuss needs to be made of the wonderful local designer in Dehli Diwas who, on hearing of Steve’s plight, whipped out her sewing machine and knocked up a new running top in less than 24 hours. You can see the fruits of her labour below. Pretty fetching we think!
Anyhow… If you are reading this and still want to donate money to Steve’s fund – you can! Just click here to donate. So far, a whopping £2000 has been raised, which is enough to buy a whole library for our school in Mali.
