For this M&S campaign, the music had to be fun, quirky and high in energy! Having worked with our filmmaker / jazz drummer friend, Sam in the past, we knew his style and skills would be a perfect fit.
So with Yussef Dayes references to hand, he laid down some solo drum performances which perfectly captured the mood we wanted. The visuals were cut to the track, allowing for a dynamic edit to emphasise the excitement of the music.
Sound design was minimal, adding effects to certain key moments like the clapperboard which became a theme of the film, the wind machine and the telephone. The addition of background voices on set added to the rough-and-ready feeling of the film.
