Brothers Chris and Kirk Bray have been producing leather goods for the last ten years. They launched Billykirk from Los Angeles in 1999, learning their craft from a third generation leather maker. A simple leather strap kick started the business, a decade later their collection has flourished into other offerings that consists of bags, belts, shoes, wallets, hats and other accessories. Since expanding and moving their operation to the East, they've employed a group of Amish leather makers to produce much of their line, while wrapping up production in their studio. We visited the brothers over the summer to observe their operation first hand and to discover the beauty behind the process. Photo by Rose Callahan
FOR THE LOVE is a film we made with dunhill about an amateur jockey with a 9-5 job who competes in the greatest horse race in the world. The trailer was released online and picked up by Channel 4 who ran the entire 3 minute film during their coverage of the 2012 Cheltenham Gold Cup. A great example of the power of earned media. The full length film will be available online from May this year.
