This footage was originally commissioned by a major international bank, as part of a hard-hitting film about the continuing fight against global money laundering and covert transactions. We enjoyed creating the arms deal and terrorist cell sequences so much that we cut them into this short film. (Director Simon J Frith; Cinematography Peter Curtis)
Surviving the Impact – a tale of Restorative Justice
Told from the perspectives of two young muggers and their victim, our dramatic short film Surviving the Impact is a powerful exploration of the restorative justice process, from youth custody sentence to a chance at redemption. Produced and directed by award-winning film maker Simon J Frith, in collaboration with the Essex Youth Offending Team.
Released from Fear – a Restorative Justice story
Check out our hard-hitting short, Released from Fear. After a gang bullying incident spirals out of control, an unlikely friendship arises between two girls on either side of the conflict, thanks to their participation in a restorative justice scheme. Produced and directed by award-winning film maker Simon J Frith, in collaboration with the Essex Youth Offending Team.
Making Every Contact Count
There’s a fine line between making someone’s day, and ruining it completely! Created for Essex County Council, Making Every Contact Count is a guide to broaching tricky subjects (stress, smoking, alcohol abuse et cetera) in a sensitive manner with both colleagues and customers. The following two pairs of films, from a series of ten, illustrate two very different approaches and outcomes – an engaging mix of ninja-level people skills and face-palm comedy. Written by Jim Cogan and directed by Simon J Frith.
We were approached by IRMS Ltd to find a way to best communicate their new risk management training programme. The training programme incorporates a live original play based on an ancient African story – ‘Moremi’. Together we developed an idea to promote the training by making a dramatic film trailer for the play.
Drawing from the play, we created a script for the trailer and produced the short film – including scoring the original soundtrack. The IRMS team were very pleased with the finished film.
