Double Denim Fashion Video
When CliQQ went down to the woods one day, you’re sure of a treat for your eyes! The team joined forces with friends and colleagues to organise a fashion shoot for a double denim series to add to the portfolio and try out new styles of shooting. The shoot took place in Rendlesham Forest where they met the incredible model Lulu, stylist Megan Smale with a stunning wardrobe of denim, hair and makeup artist Brodie Mayhew, and a Vintage American car from Suffolk Vintage car hire. The only thing not on our side was the weather, it rained on and off for most of the day, but from the end results you would never know.
Tom, an 8th generation Oysterman from Mersea, UK, talks openly about the challenges of continuing the family legacy, his own struggles with mental health and how being part of a community can be life saving.
Art by Heath Kane
We were approached at the end of 2020 by Award winning TV Commercials Director, Chris Strong, to see if we would be interested in working on a project he was developing with visual artist, Heath Kane.
Heath Kane exhibits his work internationally including at the renowned Saatchi Gallery London and is a regular on the international art fair circuit. Inspired by his design background, and his love for urban art, he creates simple, iconic and memorable pieces, always trying to distil subtle, yet subversive themes.
Shot during the January lockdown we spent the day with Heath in his Gallery and the result is a beautiful snapshot into the life and working processes of this highly regarded artist.
For the post production, we called on one of the World’s most established and Academy Award Winning Post Production houses; The Moving Picture Company, for the grade. And London’s award winning FMLY CRTV for the sound design.
Within 24 hours of going live with the finished film, Art by Heath Kane had already been featured on the homepage of Shots, a digital magazine showcasing some of the worlds most creative advertising content.

Created to promote the S/Y Archelon, which is a 37.45m luxury yacht available for charter. We were tasked with creating a lifestyle video for the boat and photographing a range of imagery for use online and for the charter company Ocean Independence.
We shot in Antigua over four days, flying two crew: Oliver Suckling (Photographer) and Toby Essex (Videographer) and a lot of kit out there only to be met with heavy rain and high winds. We had to work fast, taking advantage of every break in the weather to get the shots required.

Lavenham Butchers –
The good folks at Lavenham butchers say their shop ethos is “we care about food miles, high welfare and supporting our great Suffolk Farmer’s”. That became apparent to us as we drove down the road with Greg and his dog Gus to nearby farmland that they work with for an afternoon of deer stalking.

Typoretum – Printing
Established since 2008, Typoretum was founded by Justin Knopp and his wife Cecilia in response to the recent revival of letterpress printing. Today Typoretum is a busy, family run, contemporary letterpress design & printing studio offering a wide variety of services.
We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of a day in the life of Typoretum, and we straight away knew we needed to try and capture the calm, humble atmosphere that hits you when you walk in and greeted by Justin and Cecilia.
By chance they were printing work by the iconic Mr Bingo that day so we got to film some of his tradmark illustrations being hot foil stamped on the Heidelberg Press.
Special thank you to British Sea Power for allowing us to use ‘The Happiness’ on this film.
