Odgers Berndtson

When we were approached by Odgers Berndtson, we knew that only the very finest quality film would suffice. The prestigious headhunting company are world renowned and are sticklers of quality. The project took us around the world, from Madrid to Sydney, Stockholm to New York, London to Shanghai, as well as Frankfurt, Toronto and Istanbul. The film bought together an international team who, under the Odgers Berndtson name, service some of the worlds biggest banks, corporations and NGOs. The film also underlined that no matter where they were based, the fundamental pillars of excellence were a strong and dominant force throughout the Odgers Berndtson network.

We shoot so much at Harrods, for a variety of brands, the security guards know us by name… In this latest project we have been covering Nike’s unique take over of nearly 500 sq/m of retail space on the 5th floor. The space is split across Women’s Training, Men’s Running, Football, Young Athletes and Basketball. The space is premium and the results have been extremely positive.Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 10.27.33

Denby Pottery – TVC

We have just put the finishing touches to a lovely TVC for Denby Pottery. This 150 year old company, famous for it stoneware and china is based in the beautiful Peak District.
It was a lovely project to work on and we really enjoyed working with both the team at Denby and with Lucky Generals. We have since created a longer version of the film for online use and a series of radio ads.

PURE: JONGO S3

Promoting British brands is important to us at Lux Monkey and to have the opportunity to work with Pure, the company that invented DAB radio was especially exciting.
The Jongo S3 is a fantastic product, a great sounding omni-directional, portable speaker with a ten hour battery life and both wifi and bluetooth connection. It is the perfect summer speaker and can be taken anywhere. Pure wanted a video to create awareness of the speaker without going to heavily into the technical aspects. They wanted something that would capture the summer spirit and playfulness of the product. See the full version here.Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 10.12.55

Federation of Bakers

When the Red Consultancy turned to us for help creating a viral campaign to promote the virtues of healthy bread to young women, we asked them what they thought would get the audience’s attention. ‘A handsome naked man making a healthy sandwich’ was their response. And so we set to work… Obviously we would have struggled to get away with an actual naked man and so we devised the idea of a kitchen table that would keep his modesty, if only just. The casting was exhaustive, but finally with the dedication and attentiveness of the female contingency of Red, we found Joss from Storm Models. Joss was brilliant – totally up for the gag and extremely patient on the shoot. Both Red and The Federation of Bakers were elated with the result – over 100k hits in the first week!Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 10.03.04

The FA & McDonald’s

McDonald’s in association with the FA have kicked off their 2014 Community Awards Scheme with a film by Lux Monkey.
Our brief was to create a piece of content that summed up the feelings of pride, commitment and achievement that comes with being a volunteer at a grassroots football club in the UK.
We met ‘Boz’ at Hough End FC in Manchester, both he and the club had an inspirational story. Later in the day McDonalds & The FA arranged for some football heroes to coach the kids in a training exercise. Martin Keown, Gary Pallister, Eric Harrison and Gary Neville all put the kids through their paces. Separate content for YouTube, Instagram and Vine were created from this experience.
