One man's junk is another man's....Award winning art!!

Haroon Mirza, an artist who scours junk shops and eBay for items to use in his exhibitions has scooped £16,500 as winner of the Northern Art Prize.

The vintage radios and record players, found on eBay or in junk shops, are placed alongside projected film clips and Edward Armitage's 1888 painting The Siren, accompanied by distorted musical sounds.

A nice way to be reminded that art is created by the most every-day and discarded of things.

Not a bad prize for routing around eBay and Oxfam, I might start myself.

Homeless Voiceover Artist

This homeless ex-radio announcer has become a YouTube hit over the last few days. It turns out he's already been offered work by the NBA. It can't be long before somebody hires him for an ad. The only mystery is how someone who sounds so naturally authoritative ended up on the streets in the first place.

Skandia Interviews

We created this little film for our clients Skandia when we were down in Weymouth last April shooting their brand film featuring Team GBR. It includes some of the team talking about what they do both on and off the water to stand the best chances of success at the 2012 Olympics. “Controlling the controllables” as much as possible is their recipe for victory, which is akin to Skandia’s approach to investment.

Like Team GBR’s –ologists, Skandia will analyse reams of data regarding fund performance in order to enable IFAs to provide the right solutions for their investors thus providing them with the greatest possible financial certainty. The film will live on Skandia’s website and YouTube channel.

St. Luke's partner with Cool Earth

We are extremely proud to announce that we are now partners of Cool Earth, a charity working with local communities to secure forests at risk of being destroyed within the next 18 months.

Christmas 2010 we bought our clients, contacts & friends their very own Christmas tree... well strictly speaking it wasn't a Christmas tree, it’s a Peruvian Pine. The donations of trees will ensure local communities who depend on living trees rather than cleared land to earn a better income.

Click here to see the great work that Cool Earth do.
