We were very honoured to be asked to creatively direct the BFI’s first ever fund raising gala event ‘Luminous’. It was a long journey to pull the various elements of creative production together and we were very excited to present the results last night to an exclusive audience in London.

The event showcased the BFI’s extensive archive, focusing on the importance of film restoration and celebrating the UK’s film talent. All this material was crafted into 360 degree projection mapping around the entire ballroom at the 8 Northumberland Avenue venue, using a mixture of visual footage gathered from film shoots at the National Archive in Berkhamsted and 100’s of stills from their special collections.

The centre piece for the event was an epic multi screen audio visual piece called ‘Soliloquy’ that was written and directed by TLS creative director Christopher Thomas Allen. This kaleidoscopic exploration of film celebrates the role that moving image plays in all our lives and asks where we would be without it. The poetic narrative is read by Idris Elba accompanied by an original score by composer Jude Greenaway and live orchestration from the Urban Soul Orchestra.
