    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

    • Marina And The Diamonds: How To Be A Heart Breaker. Official Music Video

      www.marc-ish.com We just directed this for Marina And The Diamonds. Our idea was simple: surround Marina with beautiful guys. So we placed her in a shower with 6 beautiful Calvin Kleinesque men and let the cameras roll. Marina's performance and energy throughout the shoot was amazing. We shot the video in Copenhagen and the petrol station in the vid is by the architect Arne Jacobsen, built in 1937 - what a classic. We essentially set out to respond to the rules of heartbreaking with tongue firmly in cheek and a sense of serious mischief.

      • 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 We were asked by TBWA to create this spot for Aides.org in Paris. Our interest right form the start was to make the wooden boy believable, a contemporary Pinocchio... that we responded to his humanity first and then saw him as the Wooden Boy character second. The SFX by the genius Jean-Christophe Spadaccini and his crew gave a dignity and humanity to the Wooden Boy that is mesmerising.... and the subtle acting of Alexander Ferrario beathed life into the role. Mathilde Warnier's acting was amazing, her interaction with the Wooden Boy was erotic, sensual and utterly believable. We believed in the feelings and passion they had for each other. We wanted to do the opposite of so many Aides messages, we wanted to create something beautiful and that celebrated the human spirit. That celebrated sex and passion, desire and love, but set it in the context of Aides and how, no matter what, we need to be careful for yourself and others. A simple message.

            www.marc-ish.com Save The Congo have released marc & ish's film UNWATCHABLE as part of their campaign to lobby the EU and mobile phone manufacturers to stop the trade in blood minerals in the Congo which is fuelling violence and mass rape. It is estimates that one person a minute is raped in the Congo. The film portrays the rape and killing of a family, but instead of setting the film in the Congo, Unwatchable is reconstructed in the rural idyl of England. This film is very hard hitting.

                    02:12

                    from MARC & ISH / Added

                    www.marc-ish.com This film is protest footage posted by Japanese and Chinese students who illegally landed on the disputed island of Senkaku. Stripped off and played a game of beach volleyball to declare the islands free to everyone. The island of Senkaku is fast becoming fought over territory between Japan and China. Its turned ugly and all kinds of insane provocations are happening. Flags are being burnt, people beaten up, boats colliding with each other. Mass protests. And now Taiwan and America are getting involved. All of them showing their might. All trying to have the biggest, meanest balls. It’s all a bit too macho. So marc & Ish’s response was to film a “home made” film by some young Chinese and Japanese people making their own kind of irreverent protest against the idiocy of this dispute. So their idea was to land illegally on the island, strip off to their Bikinis and play a game of Beach Vollyball! As they say in their film: “It’s a peaceful protest, a sporty protest. A sexy protest”.

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
