Press Releases - MADAM - Adforum.com https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/rss MADAM Press Releases at Adforum.com en-us Adforum.com Copyright 2018 Madam Films, Hoehn Motors & MeadsDurket Give a Lesson In Britishness https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/71516/madam-films-hoehn-motors-meadsdurket-give-a-lesson-in-britishness https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/71516/madam-films-hoehn-motors-meadsdurket-give-a-lesson-in-britishness Production service company, Madam Films, provided the backdrops to a British masterclass for USA agency MeadsDurket and their long time client, Hoehn Motors. 

Hoehn Motors recently had the opportunity to bring a jam-packed slice of Britishness to their latest TVC for the American market. Working with their longtime agency, MeadsDurket and with MADAM as their UK production support, the 2 day multiple location shoot delivered three commercials and additional variations.

A highly collaborative production, with input from MADAM to ensure British authenticity, meant greater creative production support than a standard service production. Close communication across creative working with the director and ECD, MADAM’s knowledge as producers in commercials and on the ground in the UK and, a first for MADAM, having clients as lead talent all created a production sweet spot. It was a close working, respectful and highly enjoyable production. With a tight and fast moving two days with eleven locations across central London, expertise was paramount in achieving the desired outcome.

MADAM Executive Producer & Producer on the project: Michelle Stapleton Showcasing British culture with the challenges of being location-heavy, extremely ambitious creative & a limited budget and to have pulled it off seamlessly is a proud moment. It’s a fantastic example of showing our clients that our city is not out of reach financially. We couldn’t do it without the expertise of our crew, which never goes unnoticed with our clients.

Tony Durket, Founder, MeadsDurket, USA: ‘Madam did an outstanding job! One of the most ambitious projects we have ever attempted and it was pulled off brilliantly by Michelle and the crew. I’m honoured to have worked with such an amazing company’.

Locations across London included the historic Middle Temple, Piccadilly Circus, Westminster Bridge, Victoria Embankment, Albert Embankment & Jermyn Street at one of London’s busiest times of year, the Christmas lead up.

A Step Back in Time for X Factor Winner James Arthur’s Latest Promo serviced by Madam Films https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/70825/a-step-back-in-time-for-x-factor-winner-james-arthurs-latest-promo-serviced-by-madam-films https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/70825/a-step-back-in-time-for-x-factor-winner-james-arthurs-latest-promo-serviced-by-madam-films British singer & songwriter, James Arthur, returns to the UK charts with his latest single, NAKED, with Madam Films providing the service production for the promo.

Shot at Black Island studios across one day, the MADAM crew recreated a late 1950’s early 1960’s live television studio, complete with original television cameras. Directed by Mario Clement of German production company, EASYdoesit for Sony.

The premise is a romantic short story with Arthur as the host and interviewer of his own live television programme. In the story, Arthur finds himself in the uncomfortable position of interviewing a special guest, played by Cressida Bonas, who happens to be the woman he is in love with. As the story continues, the drama unfolds on screen live in front of an audience of millions.

Black Island studios became home for the one-day shoot with two immaculately recreated sets comprising of the live television studio and an everyday living room. This brought an opportunity to source exceptional art department with immense attention to detail.

Our one-week turnaround for pre-production required experienced Heads of Department who were able to pull out all the stops in such a short space of time. Production Designer Russell De Rozario’s input to the set was imperative. Having the caliber of MADAM favourite De Rozario on the crew and his network of contacts brought with it the opportunity to bring two original cameras down to London from Birmingham.

The final sets, coupled with wardrobe, hair & makeup finely tuned to the era, created a genuinely believable and atmospheric shoot.

Carly Stone, Executive Producer & Founder, Madam Films: ‘It has been quite a few years since MADAM has produced a music video and it was the opening sentence of Mario’s treatment, the film being based upon one of his dreams, that instantly drew MADAM in. We were keen to be involved in a narrative piece and partner with the talented EASYDoesit crew to step back into the 50’s/60’s, allowing us to work creatively with our UK crew. ‘

The English Premier League has kicked off and to celebrate the new season & influence of this truly global sport, MADAM's showcase has a distinctly football theme. 


 

Did You Know....

Club training grounds are often some distance from their stadiums so, with UK/London traffic, travel time can be higher than expected:

Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in London v Hertfordshire training ground
Chelsea's Stamford Bridge v Surrey training ground
Manchester United's Old Trafford v Aon Training Complex

Most footballers train daily and are not available until early afternoon

High-profile footballers have their regular body doubles on many brands

For some Premiership clubs, it's not unusual to see multiple crews at the end of training days, filming their individual player 

 

Our Hat-Trick

Here's a trio of MADAM serviced TVCs starring Premier League footballers: Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez & Elneny & on location at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea's John Obi Mikel before he moved to China.

Just click on the image below to view! 


 

& finally...new season means Fantasy Football Leagues!

Madam Bhatt has her squad in place at Fantasy Premier League

MADAM Transforms Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/65257/madam-transforms-arsenals-alexis-sanchez https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/65257/madam-transforms-arsenals-alexis-sanchez Collaborating with Chilean production company, La Fuerza Producciones and their client, Movistar, MADAM’s latest production involved turning the clock forward for the 28 year old Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez as he became an 80 year old grandfather in the Chilean aired commercial.

MADAM provided a one day green screen shoot at Duke Island Studios. Due to the usual time constraints of working with A-List football personalities, we welcomed Sanchez for a total of six hours, four of which were in make-up for the prosthetics to be applied by our latest crew collaborators, the highly talented Millenium FX.

MilleniumFX: ‘The team at Madam were highly informative, always accessible and extremely positive – a pleasure to work with!’

The tight deadlines on the day required director, Pablo Guarnaccia, to be well supported with the MADAM crew fully in place and ready to go at a moment’s notice. A finely tuned shoot ensued with the addition of stills for the client by another MADAM trusted favourite, Chris Dodd.

Jose Barake, Le Fuerza: “Working with Madam was a true delight. We needed a production company that could help us with a tight budget and a huge challenge that involved shooting a soccer superstar. They did an incredible job and made our first experience shooting in London a splendid one. Can’t wait to work with Madam again”

Michelle Stapleton: “It’s always wonderful collaborating with people who are as passionate about the work they do as Madam is. It’s never easy working with tight budgets and tight schedules but always made easier when you have wonderful production companies to work for.”

MADAM provides itself on delivering the highest production value to all our productions and clients. This collaboration with MADAM, La Fuerza & Movistar offered a cohesive team able to react and respond to the changing requirements of elite athletes.

MADAM shoots global influencers The F2 for long-form six part series https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/62515/madam-shoots-global-influencers-the-f2-for-long-form-six-part-series https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/62515/madam-shoots-global-influencers-the-f2-for-long-form-six-part-series Production on Whistle Sports’ latest long form series was serviced entirely by MADAM in the UK. Fronted by global social influencers the F2, the six-part series, It’s Called Football, which launched Boxing Day looks at the history, culture and fans of Premier League clubs and features unbelievable trick shots. With 11.5 million social media subscribers, the F2, Jeremy Lynch and Billy Wingrove, are Adidas key ambassadors, alongside the likes of Messi.

Production service company, MADAM, produced all elements of the UK segment with unprecedented access across four premiership football clubs, Chelsea, Arsenal, West Ham and Southampton – their home grounds and training grounds, including their players and various locations across London & the UK.

MADAM producer, Michelle Stapleton: ‘The exciting element of this project was combining long-form film making with the expertise of working across high-end ads. This needed to be produced in a super organized high-end commercial manner but with the flexibility of working in a programme/documentary manner not governed by commercial rules. We had compact 4K cameras, second and third units, half the usual size commercial crew but still our preferred A-List crew members. All of which allowed us to cover off 4/5 locations a day and produce four 30 minute films across nine days. It was a fast paced, highly organized project with numerous decision changes on a daily/hourly basis.’

The 10 day shoot saw all crew travel extensively across London and South England with unparalleled access to home grounds of Stamford Bridge, including full access to the pitch, tunnel, dressing rooms, the Olympic Park, training grounds, local locations including Sloane Square, King’s Road, Bluebird Café, Cheyne Walk houseboats, an open top London double decker bus tour covering iconic central London sites including Trafalgar Square & Big Ben and for classic British Beach Hut shots in Hampshire. Access to Premiership players included Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel, Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Southampton’s Kelvin Davis and West Ham’s Dimitri Payet.

Director George Wieser: ‘The Madams were able to wrestle some semblance of order to the chaos that we brought to their shores. Changes came fast and at the last minute. Not only were there many moving parts, not enough time, a ridiculously ambitious shot list and a cranky director but also shooting with premier league teams and talent. With Michelle running the show I knew that it was going to be sorted properly. From a creative stand point it took a huge weight off my shoulders and allowed me to perform my duties as director without having to worry about the production. In the end we ended up with a wonderful show that wouldn't have happened without the expert help from the Madams.’

In each 30-minute episode, F2 Freestylers, Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch, will take fans behind a different club from the Premier League, providing background on the culture, songs, stadiums, history, and fans of the club.

In the first episode, Billy and Jeremy examine the key facts fans need to know about Premier League football, and take fans through London’s Chelsea neighborhood to speak with Blues fans. The guys also speak with Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi, and perform trick shots under the lights at Stamford Bridge.

The second episode in the series features a look into the history of Arsenal Football Club, including appearances by Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez, defender Shkodran Mustafi, and former Arsenal player Daniel Karbassiyoon. 

Trailers for the upcoming season are available here.

PEPSI & ARSENAL'S ELNENY https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/59892/pepsi-arsenals-elneny https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/59892/pepsi-arsenals-elneny Working through OVIDEO production company, part of Mediapro Group, our latest production was at locations across an in-bloom Battersea Park and Westminster in Springtime London. With a one week turnaround Madam provided a 72 strong crew and two cameras for the one-day shoot. Working with a Spanish team consisting of renowned director Jaume Balaguero, DP Pablo Rossi and 1st AD Luca Vacchi, communication across two languages was paramount for a smooth running production that required multiple moves across the locations, accommodation of an on-location stills shoot and the last minute addition of BTS.
Another Madam production we are immensely proud of!

Madam Springs Into Action Shooting London Landmarks https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/57030/madam-springs-into-action-shooting-london-landmarks https://www.adforum.com/production/6669692/press-releases/57030/madam-springs-into-action-shooting-london-landmarks It was London in one day as Madam took over The Walkie Talkie building, Trafalgar Square, Tower Bridge & Cleveland Row for their latest production.

UK service production company, Madam Films, recently welcomed German advertising agency Panama Werbeagentur to London for a one-day shoot encompassing some of London's most recognisable and high profile landmarks. Shooting took place on location at The Sky Garden atop the Walkie Talkie building, Trafalgar Square, river shots passing under Tower Bridge and finally Cleveland Row behind Kensington Palace. To secure the required river background shots of Tower Bridge, Madam chartered the crew and boat Erasmus who performed a series of turns passing through and under the bridge.

Playing host to Panama Werbeagentur, their client and the stars of their commercial – two well known German vloggers, Madam put London centre stage for the commercial which will air across German cinema and internet. Agency Head of Production, Filomena Alder, speaking of her experience shooting with Madam says, ‘Shooting in London with Madam – is my cup of tea!’

Working closely with Westminster council at a time of heightened security, Madam Films ably moved quickly and smoothly across all four sites. Such prime locations ensured direct shots of The Shard, Trafalgar Square’s lions and probably the most iconic of all London images, Tower Bridge.

The commercial for German cinema & internet airs soon.
