1. THE BOXER REBELLION: THE RUNNER

    from MARC & ISH / Added

    www.marc-ish.com UK directing duo marc & ish created this film with The Boxer Rebellion. They gave us the track and we took the idea of honesty from the lyrics and created a narrative that would be both completely surprising and utterly compelling. We wanted to make a something that was seriously playful and naughty, but also might be profound, raw and honest. Two "it" girls come home from a party and we compress 24 hours of a drunken roller-coaster of highs and lows, passion and heartache into 4 minutes. We wanted to explore a frenzied relationship, present the viewer with something that might be seen at first glance as controversial or sensational, but break through this.... breakthrough the fashionista styling, photo-shoot imagery, the beauty, the sexuality, the crazy night out... and try and find an intimate humanity that is shockingly real. Honest. Why two girls? Why not? Love is love. www.marc-ish.com Directed by marc & ish Music: The Boxer Rebellion Starring: Hannah May & Andrea Chovanova Producer: Tess Mitchell Executive Producer: Bradley Woodus Editor: Nick Lofting Cinematography: Stuart Graham Stylist: Sascha Lilic Editorial: Jump LA Colour Grade: James Bamford @ The Mill Post Production: Owen Saward - Lead Flame, Michael Smith - Flame Post Production Company: Absolute Post Production Company: Black Jack Films

      • SENSATIONAL DITA VON TEESE STRIPS FOR MARC & ISH'S CONTROVERSIAL RENAULT CLIO AD

        from MARC & ISH / Added

        www.marc-ish.com Campaign Magazine Pick Of The Week UK directing duo marc + ish filmed the sensational Dita Von Teese in their latest commercial. The commercial was for Renault Clio and relauunched their Va Va Voom campaign. So what is va va voom? We created a series of art installations for a fictitious Andy Warholesque Happening. Each installation explored the allure we find in iconic celebrity. We created a sumptuous “peephole cube” for Dita that sat in a vast concrete space. Outside the cube was an abstract red, covered in padded satin with one side covered in peepholes; inside we created a Parisian 1920s bordello set. We loved the idea of separating Dita from her audience, intensifying the experience by only giving the audience in the exhibition and the audience at home teasing glimpses of the magnificent Dita. When Thierry Henry got his glimpse, his expression says everything! Our homage to Audrey Hepburn took that iconic moment in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We created a simple, minimalist and dynamic space. The gallery audience looking at her looking at them. We threw in the ginger cat as another reference to the film. Marlon was projected at a vast scale on the ceiling of the space, people lying on their backs watching him. David Bowie was tattooed onto the back of a man and Rihanna blasted the audience with paparazzi flashes. And we hung the car in the space like a harpooned Great White shark. An artwork. The commercial was banned on Daytime TV in the UK and became a global phenomena.

          www.marc&ish.com Client: Amnesty International [cinema/ viral]. Starting out masquerading as an arrogant vodka advert the spot morphs, showing the CIA interrogation technique of waterboarding in “beautiful” slow motion. Youtube most watched 2 days in a row. 3 million hits in 3 days. The film caused a media stir in the US with a dedicated CNN report on the film. When referral sites like Boing Boing took the film up, Amnesty’s server farm crashed due to so many hits. Shown in cinemas internationally. "Shows you what the CIA doesn’t want you to see" The telegraph "Hard hitting" The guardian "Delivers a big dose of shock" CNN “For Amnesty's Unsubscribe campaign marc & ish proofed a very strong combination of human rights expertise, strategic thinking, creativity and a sense for high quality communications. The effect and reach of the campaign was phenomenal. Their ability to first identify a sharp campaign proposition and then turning it into an innovative concept is outstanding. We consider the Unsubscribe campaign definitely one of our best and most successful over the last years.” Matthias Stock, Brand Planner, Amnesty International UK Directed by marc & ish Film Editor: John Mayes Music by Adam Freeland DarkFibre Films

            www.marc-ish.com Agency: Wieden + Kennedy. [viral]. The client asked us to create a mini film version of our commercial “Tough Enough”. Working with HFB (Dom Beken and Alex Paterson from The Orb), who supplied a music track full of magnificent spaghetti western guitar and harmonica set to a strange hip hop swing beat, we created a poetic narrative centering on a world populated by unemployed clowns, old hags and space hoppers. Everything is treacherous. The pressure of living extreme. We had more time to enjoy the footage the phantom camera gave us, the crashing plate glass becoming some strange waterfall, dwelling on the fire. Making it black and white gives us a knowing retro feel.

              www.marc-ish.com Distributed by Lionsgate [cinema feature] this Oscar shortlisted DarkFibre production chronicles a revolutionary new dance craze from the ghettos of Los Angeles called Krumping. Using dance as an alternative to gangs and hustling, the kids paint their faces like clowns and warriors, meeting to out perform rival gangs of dancers. The dances they create are emotional outpourings of their lives. They are more than just great moves. They are almost improvised theatre.

These were installed in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. We invited her into the space and filmed her reaction.

                    www.marc-ish.com Commissioned by Levi’s and Channel 4 [broadcast]. this film is Levi’s first brand funded film who wanted to make a film about the irish rock band, Ash. Rather than play it straight and make the usual rockumentary we decided to kidnap the band. we held them for 7 days in the former Sierra Leone embassy in London and subjected the band members to interrogation by a blind medium, a past life hypnotherapist and two dodgy strippers. Consensual kidnapping was an underground phenomenon in New York at the time. The results were surprising for them and us. “Love and destruction is the most unconventional documentary the producers could make” NME “A strange band, a strange film!” The Guardian Pick Of The Day . . .

                      www.marc-ish.com Client: Amnesty International [cinema/ viral]. For the Unsubscribe campaign. The film explored the physical reality of the CIA interrogation procedure of the stress position. Rather than reconstruct or dramatise the procedure, we chose to film it for real over 6 hours. The actor went through the agony of the stress positions. Our approach was to film it as beautifully as possible, to try and hold the viewers attention throughout as they witness something brutal, degrading and unacceptable. . . .
