Tza, our esteemed former colleague and director of such Medlo projects as Spacestation and AOD, has co-created this excellent Safe Sex 8-Bit Viral for the Leicestershire Teenage Pregnancy Partnership. We’re not the only ones who are impressed – the Guardian seem to like it too.


Just a quick link – some of our work for Chatroom has now started making its way online, and Empire magazine has an exclusive look at the featurette we made about William –  AKA Aaron Johnson.

Empire Exclusive


A few months ago we stepped out entirely from our comfort zone and produced the video for Candy Rock’s debut single ‘Candy Shop’ amid a torrent of champagne, beautiful girls and costume changes in a dilapidated former music superstore somewhere in the heart of London.

And here it is. Medlo go girl-pop.


The Yes Men

12Oct09

A couple of months ago Medlo chipped in some donated time and shot a meeting of creative minds for The Yes Men – corporate pranksters and scourge of unethical businesses everywhere. They were planning a Bhopal drinking water event so we scuttled over to Soho where the advertising team were readying their designs and captured them in full creative flow.

That footage has now been edited (not by us, we should stress) and posted online. So here it is…

If you haven’t already seen their new movie – The Yes Men Fix the World – then we heartily encourage you to do so. It’s achingly funny and desperately relevant. Go watch!


This is from Dza…

Demand for the show is huge, so book early to avoid disappointment.


So… as everyone in the world now knows; the king of pop is dead. Long live the memory of Michael Jackson! No one will ever replace him.

The loss of the worlds greatest popstar is doubly painful for us as we were in the process of beginning a documentary on his London shows, having been granted access by AEG – the company who’d previously hired Dza and Phil to cover the Prince shows last year.

Footage of his press launch had already been filmed and we were just about to begin full time work on it when news of his death broke; equipment had been bought, subjects confirmed, contracts signed and I was even moving to London for the duration of his residency.

Now, of course, none of this will ever come to pass. We had grandiose plans to cut a feature out of our material and, whether or not that would ever have been seen, it would have provided a terrific calling card for Medlo and enabled us to work on bigger and better projects.

No doubt it would have won us 4 Oscars and we’d be millionaires by now.

It’s still hard to come to terms with the loss – of a man, of a legend and of an opportunity that will never – ever – come to pass again. We spent much of the week following his death in shock, just blinking into the midday sun and uttering half finished sentences that amounted to the same statement – “I can’t believe he died.”

Our thoughts are with his family, and his fans. And with ourselves too.

RIP
