Work / Henderson Seafood / Malaga
Henderson Seafood hosted a week-long getaway in Malaga for some of their restaurateurs.
We were tasked with capturing the week and speaking with some of the chef's about their experience, the result being far more than a standalone case study.
Mediterranean air, low Spanish sunshine, colourful markets, and four of London's top chefs in one elegant villa; all the perfect ingredients for storytelling.
I was really surprised by the content that came out during the week; what began as a pretty standard client testimonial brief (albeit with a Spanish backdrop) very quickly turned into something much more personal and story-driven.
With such rich content we created a 10-minute documentary that looks at all four chefs, their backgrounds and relationships with food.
Each chef was tasked with creating a dish using local produce and we explore their passions and approach to their dishes.
Shooting took place at Finca Arroyo de las Adelfas, Malaga, and at Holborn Dining Room, Chiltern Firehouse and Quality Chop House, London.
"Mixed in with this atmosphere of adrenaline, there were these big scary looking guys doing something very creative and artistic, and I love that. And it was the first time probably in my childhood where I felt comfortable."
A series of individual films focus on each chef, their passion and why they trust Henderson Seafood.

We combined the making of a sixpence with a Christmas Pudding to celebrate this tradition stemming from the Victorian era.
We were commissioned to produce a flagship film celebrating the history, prestige and heritage of The Royal Mint following a brand refresh.
We shot a TVC nine days after commission including incidental and dedicated stills for digital, print and OOH advertising.
