Altered Focus: Burma

Altered Focus: Burma will be available online on Monday at 9pm. Due to a colleague’s continued involvement in Burma we have had to wait until now to release the film.

Filmed in the summer of 2009, Altered Focus: Burma follows three film makers and skateboarders including Harmony and Analog UK rider Ali Drummond, as they travel across Yangon and Mandalay. The film explores the reaction to this unseen activity whilst touching on the political situation there.

The project was produced and directed by James Holman and Alex Pasquini.

We are very pleased to announce that we have been commissioned to produce all the new promotional content for Ultimate Hikes in New Zealand.

This involves producing promotional content for each day of the Routeburn and Milford Sound guided walks. We have completed production on the Routeburn guided walk and are due to start on the Milford Sound hike next week.

A 20 second spot from the Guided walk is available to view here with the individual day edits to follow soon.

News Update – Commercial, Burma and More

James is still in New Zealand and recently completed work on a Becel Pro.Activ commercial shot in Queesntown and airing in Canada in the new year. We’ll have a link up once the commercial airs.

It’s been a long journey but our Burma documentary is nearing the final cut. Further to this, James is heading back to Burma in February to do some more work out there, we’ll have more on this nearer the time.

There are a couple of other pieces in the pipeline, which we’ll update you on in the new year.

News Update: Monster, NZSki and more!

News has been a little slow of late, but it hasn’t meant we haven’t been busy, quite the opposite! We’ve had a commission from Monster Energy Drinks that Alex has been taking care of whilst James has currently in New Zealand working on two projects.

Over the next 6 months, James will be looking after all the film, video and editing responsibilities for New Zealand’s premiere ski company, NZSki.

We’ll have some videos relating to both Monster and NZSki going up in the next couple of weeks.
