Last year MPH had the pleasure of meeting Russell Oliver Stone. Russell’s music career began in the 1960’s, however in 1995 he took a break to study and obtained an MA in Transpersonal Psychotherapy. He then dove back into his journey with music and asked us to join him by filming his studio sessions. It was an honour for us to be able to film the soulful magic that is Russell Oliver Stone and we can’t wait to release the live sessions next year!
Butch 4 Cricket
Our first official job at the start of the year was for ex-cricketer Ian Butcher a.k.a ‘Butch’. We helped Butch create a video that raised the awareness of his masterplan to bring urban cricket to London. We are delighted to announce that the England and Wales Cricket Bard and the Middlesex County Cricket Club have now provided funding for the Westway Cricket Centre, and that our video made a significant contribution to making this happen.
There But Not There
We were very touched to be involved with the There But Not There campaign. We were asked to create a small piece of content promoting the silhouettes of the Tommies across the country. This footage was also used by ITV and BBC News coverage to promote the campaign. The purpose of There But Not There is to commemorate those who died, to educate all generations of WW1 and to help heal veterans by raising funds for certain charities that work towards improving the welfare of armed forces and veterans.
For the last few years, MPH have been working with Sony creating our mini series The Sony Pro Show. The show is aimed at camera enthusiasts and provides them with a walkthrough guided by professionals on all the potential there is to unlock with sony equipment. For the full sony pro show visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Oye7bYre9s We also filmed promotional content for the Sony PWZ Z90, here is a clip of it in action:
MPH throughly enjoyed creating Funding Circle’s latest piece of online content. We travelled across the country and capture the craftsmanship that goes into running various small businesses.

Throughout the year MPH have been converting a classic car to a fully electric vehicle. We have been documenting the journey of the electrification, as well as highlighting others converting their own classics and created a channel on YouTube showing the process.

MPH were approached by Alinda Capital to create a conference video for their major annual conference held at The Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland. We created a piece of content that highlighted their heritage and staff agility all in one inspiring film.
Ibiza Music Video Festival
MPH created the Ibiza Music Video Festival in 2013 to celebrate those people behind the scenes who put their heart, mind and soul into making great music promos. 6 years on the 2018 IMVF was another great success and always a pleasure to be part of. We work on this all year round organising the submissions, arranging the judges and orchestrating for the nominees to fly out to the awards ceremony! Head over to the website to see which nominees and winners were in this years awards ceremony: http://ibizamusicvideofestival.com/
Special thanks to Gail Fear for her dedication in making this happen every year.
In October we took a trip to the countryside to film Le Chameau’s new Christmas online advert. All we needed was 14 pairs of boots, 12 locations, 8 alpacas, 2 untrained dogs, 2 feral children, 50kg of fake snow combined with a race to catch the sunset. It was safe to say we gave this production some wellie!

Action For Children
We were very honoured to be part of Action For Children’s Secret Santa campaign. We arranged interviews with several celebrities asking them “What is the weirdest Christmas present you have ever received?” The message of the campaign is to encourage people to not waste their money on unwanted Christmas presents and to donate £10 to a child instead.
