Orange Film Studios – Mr Dresden & Mr Eliot

Martin Bennett

We just had a great shoot in London for Orange. In collaboration with TV production company Biscuit and the creative digital media people at Poke, Photographing Mr Dresden (Brennan Brown) and Mr Eliot (Steve Furst) the two principle characters from the Orange Film Board commercials. The commissioned set of photos will be used in the new Orange Film Studios website.

After a journey of epic proportions getting to the shoot, involving 2 cancelled flights due to snow and then a mad dash taxi ride to another airport. We were very much relieved to arrive at Mount Pleasant Studios.

The brief was to shoot the two characters in a filmic style, similar to that of a dramatic hero movie poster or DVD cover. We shot digitally using a mixture of flash and tungsten lighting to create the filmic look we were after. Brennan, Steve and the AD Alistair Kilpatrick were a breeze to work with and as a result we shot some really nice stuff.

The above photo was taken by my colleague Mark Garner. Unfortunately I can’t post and pictures from the shoot until the campaign goes live.
Watch this space…
