Capture the essence of the production of Arkells beers.
This needed a very grounded approach, showing the beauty of each stage of production form the farming to brewing, to delivery, racking and drinking. Our drive was to show these in a cinematic way.
We worked out when and where certain process would be taking place, this was particularly relevant for the barley harvest as this is incredibly time sensitive.
This project was spread over many months as we aimed to show the production of many ingredients which are highly seasonal. Spending time capturing the various harvests, but also carefully lighting the processes in the brewery to draw out the mood of this location with a rich history.
It is always satisfying putting together a project which has taken many months to capture, revisiting previous seasons and weaving them together to create a tapestry of shots which while different are fundamentally related.
This was Arkells first foray into high end production. We worked with them to create different edits to be used at different times of the year. Everything went down really well and, in fact, we are starting an even more ambitious project with them right now.
