  2. Heineken Global Procurement Conference ‘Skyfall’ Film

    To shoot, edit and deliver a 4-5 minute film in less than 14 hours. With 6 x hours shooting time and 8 x hours edit time, we had to deliver the film to a cinema for viewing by all the Heineken staff, who had become our cast and extras in the cut, just over 12 hours after our first shot using them. And the best bit…the staff had no idea what we had been doing until they saw themselves on the huge movie screen in the ‘Urania’ theatre in central Budapest later that night. A pastiche on the ‘Heineken Skyfall’ TV commercial currently airing all over the world, our film would use the three main cast from the commercial and the Orient Express, but instead of using extras we would use Heineken employees, who had flown in from all over the world to Budapest for a Heineken Global Procurement conference. We would even use David Spacey, Senior Director of Heineken Global Procurement, as one of our cast in the film. Once shot, we rushed back to a hotel in Budapest where we cut the footage and prepped it for the screening in the cinema…less than 8 hours after we’d wrapped the shoot.
    At 9:00pm the lights went down and the private audience of Heineken employees got settled in with their beer and popcorn for ‘Skyfall’. But instead of the main feature they saw a movie with all of them as cast, shot on the very same day! The theatre erupted. And you can only imagine how chuffed they were when they saw their names on the end credits. Mission completed Mr. Eustace! Well done to everyone involved. Top job! In fact it got a better response than the main feature in the end...

  5. Directed by Simon Eustace, this film was shot for the ISPCC and Ogilvy and Mather in The Copper House Gallery in Dublin. Part of the 'Children believe what they are told' campaign, the film was part of a tv and radio campaign to highlight the 'shattering effect of emotional abuse', on children. A text and glass installation was erected in the gallery and people tweeted the ispcc to show their support. There was a counter and when it hit 0, the glass exploded. Shot on 2 x Red's, a Phantom and Canon 5D. Many thanks to Teach Solais and Crossing the Line Films for supplying the cameras and lighting kit for the shoot.

Having completed his arts degree in Trinity College Dublin, Simon toured Ireland and Europe with his band, “The Chapters”. Then he returned to college to study film production and direction. Handily, this then meant that he was able to direct music videos for “The Chapters”. (Bet the record label were well chuffed with that.)

He’s pretty much been directing shorts and music videos ever since, and is now ready to break into commercials. Simon’s most recent accolades include, winner of best video at the Bray Music Video Festival for his direction of the music video for “The Coronas”, he was also nominated for four awards at the first ever IMTV awards, including for best Director, Best video of the year, and best original concept.

His sort film, “The Perils of Internet Dating” has featured on the front page of YouTube in numerous countries.

Simon’s eye for attention to detail shines through in his very accomplished work. He is very involved in the grading and editing process, a skill he intends to bring to his work in television commercials. He is also, of course, an accomplished and talented musician, playing guitar, piano and singing – as well as moonlighting as a private detective!
