Lenny Henry

Comic Relief

Our relationship with Comic Relief started back in 2009 with a call to go and film the mass distribution of mosquito nets in by Malaria Consortium in Uganda with Gary Barlow, Fearne Cotton, Kimberley Walsh and Chris Moyles.

Capturing films on the ground for editing and uploading within the day using a portable satellite dish, we managed to create interest on social media and keep donors informed on a daily basis of the impact their donated money was having. As well as fighting off monkeys that were drawn to the interesting cables.

From then on the inspiring projects kept coming. These have included filming David Walliams swimming the Thames – and a long list that includes films created with the Duke of Sussex, Annie Lennox, Lenny Henry, Eddie Izzard, John BishopMichael Parkinson, Jo Brand, Davina McCall, Greg James, Jack DeeMiranda Hart, Gordon Ramsay and more.

We’ve also had the chance to make vital contacts on the ground, establishing a network of African-based crew. This has continued to inform our way of working: we think global, but as much as possible, we work with local crew. This way, we obtain valuable insights that we might otherwise never have had a chance to include in the films we create. In the process, we provide opportunities to crew around the world.

To Comic Relief, we say a massive ‘thank you!’ for instilling the belief that film can have a genuinely positive impact.
