Taylors of Harrogate / Welcome to Coffee

Show / Hide

Frank Budgen is quite possibly the greatest commercials director of a generation. Here he has crafted a coffee cosmos that is not bound by the conventions of commercial advertising. This advert was made with complete creative freedom and we were privileged to be invited along for the ride.

It is a brave agency and a bold brand that dives in head first, releasing completely to the hands of an auteur. BMB and their client Taylors embraced the opportunity to create something uniquely brilliant to cut through a landscape of pristine global campaigns. 

With its unashamed imagery complete with track and wires this spot was constructed to feel as though it were an installation which could be filmed and passed untouched to the transmission department. As is often the case making this spot look 'real' required a major effort of compositing as the elements within the room were carefully layered together to balance the visual spectacle.
