Mainly represented by Joyrider Films London, this directing duo was recently established by Mike Sharpe and Barney Steel. Barney has spent the last 7 years freelancing as a director, FX artist and designer in commercials, broadcast and experimental film projects as a member of the VJ collective ‘D-FUSE’. Mike was senior designer for four years at ‘The Pavement’. Their goal is to find projects that allow exploring the artistic and commercial opportunities within TV, web and interactive.
Amongst their eye popping commercial and video work for Depeche Mode, Sony, Pendulum, Stewart Lee and One Charity, they’re keen to explore new ways for viewers to interact with a brand such as walk in projection installations, hologramatic face tracking and interactive window displays. They firmly recognize that the future is in a merger of these disciplines and that theirs and others’ specialist skills, when put in one place, can lead to exciting innovative outcomes.
