The pair were chosen as part of Elton John and Youtube’s #EJTheCut, with their futuristic video being premiered in Cannes. Jack and Laura were onstage with Elton John when the video was revealed to the press for the first time.
The incredibly powerful Barnardo’s ‘Believe in Me’ campaign, directed by Sara for FCB Inferno, continues to make waves since its launch in November. With in-depth features in Creative Review, Fast Company, Creativity and Marketing week, the genre bending films have clearly struck a chord. The campaign’s central 60’ TVC won a silver at Ciclope, whilst ‘Gymnast’ took home two coveted pencils at this year’s D&AD awards. The overall campaign is shortlisted for ‘Best Campaign’ at tonight’s British Arrows Awards. Good luck to Sara and everyone who worked on the campaign.
