    The Bold & the Beautiful

    2011

    Leaving a rainy Scotland, our hero arrives in Hong Kong, and enjoys the cultural shock before adapting to his new life…

    Collaborating with the very talented illustrator Harry Harrison (SCMP, Wall Street Journal), we concentrated all our efforts on animating his two-dimensional drawings.

    We intially received them in black and white, then applied various composition tricks to bring elements of cinema to the illustrations. Additionally, we supplied the storyboards, sound effects and Scottish voice over.

    Two weeks, roughly 160 drawings and several coffee breaks later, we delivered a unique anniversary video for a private event hosted by Eventsman.

    Shaheen Sports Club, building character since 1982, celebrated their 35th anniversary partnering with Filmages to pay homage to their youth football and hockey teams.

    Our videographers were just getting warmed up as they took to the streets of Mong Kok to visit Shaheen Home Base. Then, with a freshly broken sweat, we got stuck into the action as they battled it out at Adidas Sports Base.

    With this tribute we thank the coaches for instilling the spirit of sportsmanship and creativity in the youth, and helping us shed a few ounces at the same time.

    Having covered the event several times over the years, we pulled together a crew of videographers and photographers and high-tailed it to The Landmark's Boutique Boulevard.

    Live performances by Rain and Bebe Rexha kept our team on their toes as they tustled through the crowds to cover every angle of the event.

    While the guests partied on into the night, we did not rest until all photos and video were delivered the next morning.

    If you thought you could escape from your electronic devices when playing sports, think again! Coachbase's neat app is making its way onto the best basketball courts around the world.

    In this 60 second explainer we needed to feature the app's extraordinary ease of use, so we put it to work in real-life.

    We based our story around the character of a full-time professional / part-time coach, switching between third and first-person perspectives. To do this we built a custom "iCamera" rig to track the app while our actor was on the move.

    Oh, and casting a team of American-looking teenagers in Hong Kong during the summer holidays was not the least of our challenges...

    Standing high on the hillside, Hong Kong Parkview cultivates a lifestyle with an appreciation for art and a healthy, family-oriented community. Their exclusive members club has all the facilities and amenities to make it an oasis away from the city. 

    The numerous athleisure spaces challenged our ability to show guests having fun without over-staging it. 

    Their well-equipped gym facilities gave us the opportunity to make their talented PT's sweat, for once, as we were the one's calling for more reps, probably more than twice. 

    Working with their tennis club members and a spritely trio of kids meant we could focus on getting the right drone and steady cam shots while they focussed on keeping their energy up.

    2017

    A Tale of Two Apps...

    The brief was to create 3 different edits, showcasing the HK Disneyland Park app, PhotoPass app, and one edit that would combine both. Pressed by the upcoming holiday season, we had to pull the whole production - storyboarding, location scouting, talent sourcing - in just a couple of weeks. Shooting from sunrise to sunset on one of the hottest days of the year certainly added another level of difficulty, but made it happen.

    During post-production, the challenge was to tell a story that demonstrated the two different apps' functionalities without being too long or confusing, and up to Disney's high standards.

    We had two days to shoot all the footage necessary for three different edits - hotel, food & beverage and spa. Therefore, to avoid disrupting the guests at Banyan Tree Macau, it was essential that we planned production down to the smallest detail. 

    Storyboarding each scene was crucial as our movements had to be carefully coordinated with access to locations limited to specific times during the day. 

    Admittedly though, it was the first time talents asked for more takes.

    How could we turn a classic case of corporate need into a piece of entertainment? How could we engage an audience of existing customers with the details of the whole of La Rose Noire's processes?

    We turned the story upside down! Instead of highlighting the positive points of production, we lead the audience into a dramatic exploration of LRN operations from the perspective of hired investigators.

    For what was a rather dark movie, we had to come up with a positive resolution to ensure the audience came away informed and satisfied.

    For this Fall/Winter 2013 and third installment of One Central Macau‘s promotional movies, following Gaile Lai and Donnie Yen, it was no less impressive to work with Mainland China’s Megastar Huang Xiao Ming.

    A renowned actor, singer and model with over 20 Millions followers on Weibo, brand ambassador for Tissot and ridiculously good looking, Huang Xiao Ming turned out to be very friendly and easy to work with. This was crucial as the whole movie was shot in just half a day since we had to share time with the photographer and keep the excited fans at bay.

    But as Huang Xiao Ming played the game, reacting very positively to our direction, we were able to wrap the whole movie just in time for sunset on the One Central Macau promenade.

    2014

    Being nominated in 3 categories at the prestigious the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) 2014 Annual Awards is quite an achievement, but this was only the beginning for Knight Frank because they only had days to piece together their 45-second video submission per category nomination.

    We got a call just a week before Chinese New Year. That’s right; THE Chinese New Year that paralyses the entire region for a full week. By experience we knew that submissions would be judged on hard facts contained in the printed submission. However, we knew that we had to create something fresh and bold for the fastidious jury panel. Moreover, win or lose, we wanted the videos to steal the show!

    So we proposed to intertwine 3 athletic disciplines with the 3 categories in order to surprise, delight, and leave a long-lasting impression. It was a risky pitch, but we were pleasantly surprised to receive the full trust and creative support from KF.

    “Big thanks to you and your team in producing such high quality videos! We got two [out of three] of the awards nailed – Residential and the Professional Services. The videos were the talk of the town last night and we received big compliments in terms of our out-of-the-box presentation of our teams.”

    We used the workers' daily Qigong practice as a storyline, and created a double exposure aesthetic to show them as an essential part of the construction process.

    2010

    A 3-minute compilation of 9 movies that Filmages produced for UK Trade & Investment’s “Business Opportunities in Asia-Pacific” campaign.

    Our challenge was that we had only 2 days to shoot in each country over a 4-week period. During this time we endured the rapidly changing Asian summer monsoon season. Surviving no less than 4 typhoons, we directed the interviews in a plethora of places, skillfully managing our shooting schedule throughout these chaotic conditions. 

    Additionally, editing each segment to promote the uniqueness of each country, finding 8 music tracks to match, whilst maintaining the overall consistency of the series was a tough nut to crack. Eventually, the entire post-production process for the 9 edits was then completed in 8 weeks.

    “Very passionate, creative and dedicated team with lots of ideas and suggestions. We are very pleased and impressed with the video teasers Filmages has done for us. Two thumbs up.” Meeta Dancel, Marketing Manager – UK Trade & Investment, Asia Pacific & South Africa

    In Love with the Tram

    2013

    HK Tramways was bought out in April 2011 by a French JV between RATP (the Parisian MTR) and Véolia Transportation. Most low income people were worried that foreign investment would take advantage and raise fares. The general public was also very worried about the future of their beloved Ding-Ding. So far the new management has been very respectful of the tradition and is doing its best to modernize the fleet whilst remaining the lowest travel fare in Hong Kong.

    With a limited budget and enormous logistical constraints due to the nature of the railways lines, Filmages chose to portray the evolution of the city and its architecture by following the same woman through 4 distinct eras:
    - Pre-WWII (1904-1945) with elegant Cheongsam or Qipao
    - The 50s and 60s, with the emergence of a growing female working force
    - The eccentric 70’s
    - Modern-day with a natural look with a touch of Chinese silk tradition.

    Special thanks to Charlot Kryza (Stylist), Jan (Model) & Jojo (Hair & Make-up)
    Another version of that movie was created for the Hong Kong Tramways 110th Anniversary

    A bit of a dry topic? Well, we managed to develop an original and catchy animation to raise the eyebrows of busy I.T. experts.

    Our ITX character is simple, yet tells a rather complex story with basic movements and facial expressions.

    One month later; a jazzy tune, casual voice over, an eye-catching color scheme and some delicate transitions bring the Hitachi Data Systems' technical findings to life.

    In the age of attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, 140 max-character IMs, and 15-seconds video clips, watching a 12-minute long documentary might seem like a sizeable task. But there are people who dedicate their lives to saving others, and that doesn't happen in a snap.

    Hong Kong University - Pasteur Research Centre needed a corporate documentary to present their latest activities and appeal for research sponsorship. Filmages created a whole set of communication materials, including a brochure, a website, and a 12-minute long video.

    This enabled HKU-PRC to secure an endowment fund and further contribute to the fight against infectious diseases.

    To celebrate its renovation and re-opening to the public, as an ultimate lifestyle destination, we juxtaposed representations of the golden era of the 50s - a cheongsam dressed model with matching hair and make-up - next to modern day Hong Kong.

    Additionally, we brought back to life old black and white postcards and, in doing so, encapsulated the rich heritage of this colonial era landmark.

    Although the high-demand grew them into a wholesale manufacturer, they always kept a deep love for retail.
