Tomas Makovsky has already proved he knows how to pull a heart string or two with charming, emotion-charged short films and commercials, and now he puts these finely honed skills to use in a touching new spot for energy provider E.ON with DLKW. He shows how important even the most common household appliance, the humble kettle, is in bringing people together. From a builder's hard-earned tea break to a child's comforting hot water bottle, we all rely on our kettles for those moments when we need a little cheering up or calming down.

Tomas takes us into homes of a series of characters sharing special moments together, employing an ethereal semi-transparent effect that allows the characters to reach through walls and lends the narrative a fluid quality. The kettle is a constant presence throughout the spot, passing through the hands of various characters and seamlessly connecting their individual stories. A cosy and relaxed atmosphere is created with warmly lit rooms and intimate angles, all beautifully captured by sought-after young cinematographer Justin Brown.
