Lest We Forget

In 2018, we produced an incredible and groundbreaking projection for Armistice, which was projection mapped onto a building 10 x IMAX. This year we were shortlisted to the Finals of the #AVAwards 2019. Not your usual remembrance event for sure!


It was not only an awesome projection event, but we filmed and produced the 'Tommy Rap' for the BBC which reached 500k audience last year. Take a look at the rap below if you have 3 mins. (see full lyrics by spoken word artist JPDL at the bottom of this page)


Or - with a little more time - check out the live event for Remembrance below - This starts with an explosion and ends... well, I guarantee (almost) that it will bring a tear to your eye when you hear the beautiful music by Tim Mountain played as the long list of names appear following the faces of those veterans in the windows. This was incredibly moving to produce and we were proud

Lest we forget Tommy


Tommy: Lyrics and spoken word by JPDL



fragile crimson petals, rise from disturbed earth

symbol of a forefathers actions that have earned

a place on your clothing, but also in the memory

of generations living life in traces of their legacy


we learned it in history lessons not necessarily

grasping the gravity of what they must of seen

to think the troops included around 20,000 teens

to think they left so soon engulfed in tinnitus and screams


survivors were subjected to the shell shocked day dreams

bomb blasts peppered them in scars psychologically

thunder of the war machines, unparalleled brutality

forty million casualties, civilian and military


splintered memories adrift in broken testimonies

minds shutting down and blocking out what was perceived

debilitating wounds of war, physically and mentally

from the trench they rose to Armageddon for their country


a fear of feeling fear its self, they couldn't be afraid

facing court marshals and stigma of the shame

some of them were fourteen.. told to be brave

stiff upper lip tommy, common play the game


when tommy went over the top he never was the same

tears are shed for tommy cuz he found a early grave

and we're here to commemorate the sacrifice he made

your name carved in stone tommy, that will never change


so the armistice was signed upon a hundred years today

but many conflicts followed on, tearing thru the ages

all over the planet this cycle of devastation

damages the human beings caught within its nature


devices made for killing have evolved and gained more power

but objectives on the battle field remain the same for soldiers

for those who are here for loved ones this eleventh of november

this poppy on the chest embodies that they are remembered

READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:

 

Having worked with Tim, Catherine and their team over the past 3 years I couldn't recommend them highly enough. This year's product launch conception, planning and execution at the Detectival outdoor event went beyond the scope of the brief and they provided additional ideas for content and creating an experience around the event that was well received and brilliantly executed. They really think about how much can be gained from the investment that is made in time and money by their clients and work as hard as they can to deliver the optimum. Looking forward to working with them again in the future.
