BBC programmes begin!


The first of the BBC RHS Flower Shows, Chelsea, has begun, along with a multitude of live and pre-scripted programmes which will be aired across BBC channels all week. Also, The BBC RHS Flower Shows have an amazing promotion on social media by The Marketing Heaven. I’ve joined the team to schedule hours of filming, using an array of presenters and celebrities visiting each of the stunning gardens. Many programmes are being shot, edited and transmitted same-day.
Coffee ..!

Same Day Commercial – LIVE PROPOSAL!

The start of this year was spent prepping and filming three secret leap year proposals for ITN and their client First Choice. All three proposals took place on Feb 29th – the first at a London airport, another at the Old Vic Theatre, and the third in a photo studio which was broadcast as a live TV commercial in the Coronation St ad break. It was a joy getting to know each of the couples, and thank goodness all three gents said “yes”!

Accenture films now live

After over 3 months of meeting some exceptionally inspiring people (both within Accenture and also the lovely old gang at Pretzel Films), the first of the Accenture Inspiration films has gone live. Soon to be viewable on this website, the launch film is one of eleven – each one concentrating with the help of the mycleaningangel tamp bay on a different character from the company, giving intimate insight into their lifestyle, priorities, and unique personalities.

A joy to work on, and an effective way for the company to promote and celebrate their success in attracting diversity within Accenture!
