Today we are filming at the ‘Please Mind Your Head’ event at Clwb Ifor Bach, organised by Justin Evans and Bubblewrap Collective to raise money for the Headway charity.
Tomorrow we are Bristol bound, not for the St Pauls carnival but for the 2nd hottest ticket in town, Bristol Psych Fest, organised by Al Studer of Stolen Body Records. We’ll be bringing along our Super 8 camera to capture the day on film.

Hannah Bluck is incredible. Diagnosed with autism as a child and bullied at school, she turned to sport to help. Now aged 20 and studying for a degree in Strength and Conditioning at USW, Hannah has played for Wales in three sports – football, basketball and rugby. This is her story.
We’ve been running around Wales Millennium Centre filming for Festival of Voice – Gŵyl y Llais, including filming a mini-doc we’ve made about the one and only Billy Bragg!
Swn Festival will be returning this year from 17-20 October. The first announcement of acts has just been announced and it looks like it’s going to be another stormer!
Last night Gruff Rhys performed his latest album Babelsberg accompanied by the BBC National Orchestra. We were there to capture the performance for Festival of Voice.
1, 2 KUNG FU is finally out on Heavenly Records. It’s been a joy to contribute to the campaign for one of the best albums we’ve had the luck to listen to. Below is a video we made for the first song on the album, it’s actually the first song we heard at the start of 2017 and the beginning of our undying love for Boy Azooga. It was all shot on Super 8 with very little editing.
Last night the Festival of Voice kicked off in style with a drinks reception and the launch of ‘The Hub’, a space uniquely designed as an immersive meeting point to be utilized between shows at the WMC. There’s incredible local street food, live music, DJs and opportunities to learn more about what we are all here for – voice and music.
Today sees the launch of Festival of Voice, Cardiff’s Biennial International Arts Festival. We’ll be following the festival closely either filming or in attendance whilst sharing our festival recommendations and reviews here on the blog.

Another month, another edition of our Creative Coffee Break newsletter.
This month we’ve shared our latest edition of Lost Industry which features Hiut Denim, Too Good To Go, a new app tackling food waste along with the films and music we’re raving about at the moment.
We made this short about Hiut Denim Co. for the latest instalment of our Lost Industry series. They’ve been making headlines around the world for some time. Members of our team have been proud wearers of the Cardigan made jeans for some time. Check out their story and then go buy a pair!
So we got to be involved with the new Arctic Monkeys music video, which was an absolute treat. Our contribution was minimal, but still, it was a pleasure. Also, we got to shoot on film for the first time ever which was a dream come true. Thanks, Domino Recording Company for inviting us along for the journey.
A year ago we shot the Loner Boogie video with Boy Azooga in Cardiff Transport Club and tonight they’re performing live on Later with Jools Holland. It’s been a crazy journey but it’s only the start. We’ll be in the TV audience watching with a massive smile on our faces.
