Boschi, cavar carbone – Official Trailer

Posted by tyson on 1st April 2020

Film Maker Marco Riva captures an Italian tradition….


At Giazza, a Cimbrian village in eastern Lessinia, the Boschi’s family has been preserving and conveying the ancient charcoal tradition for forty years.
In the words of each member, strongly emerges the bond with this profession which bears values increasingly rare in this chaotic consumer society: the sense of family, patience and sharing.
Precious memories resurfaces: Nello’s childhood, divided between school, breeding and help to his father and also the formative encounter with two expert carbonai who will initiate him to this ancient craft.
The deep conversations around the fire along with the singing of coal, pervade the memories of his son Giorgio, who is now an expert carbonaio , and those of the young great-granddaughter Gloria who carefully observes this ancient practice eager to become, one day, an active part of this magical rite, which means family to her.

Around the globe with Olam

Posted by tyson on 2nd September 2014

When we were asked to make a three minute film to celebrate Olam International’s 25th Anniversary we would never have though that journey would take us to some incredible places. The company is based in over 65 countries around the world and produce and trade everything from timber to cotton, from pepper to coffee, onions to tomatoes.

Thanks to our client Design Motive, and The Herd Represented logistic support in London, the 4 men team travelled to four countries in Africa, as well as Singapore, Colombia and the USA. Our aim was to capture a day in the life of Olam employees working in various aspects of the company around the world.

Shooting on the impressive Canon C300 and using Kessler Jibs and sliders with Manfrotto tripods we were able to achieve the results we were after and captures some incredible footage. Below are a few BTS images of the team at work.
