  3. Europride : Pufff was directed by Richard Hickey and Andrew Daffy, and was a true labour of love. It represents the nature of work we’d ideally be doing 24/7 – quirky, edgy and with more than a little bit of glitz and glamour.

    The project was run under extremely tough circumstances, yet the film crews, international drag queens, audio genii and a particularly special producer came together to make it what it is.

    Although it seemed that Richard and Daffy had been working on the piece for months, in actual fact the entire process was completed within a matter of weeks. As well as providing the CGI, we were thrilled to take on further responsibilities around editing, digital cinematography, final compositing and hosting a talent search at Madame Jojo’s for reference.
