Case study:  Editing ‘Mr. Happy – the public art of Stuart Semple’, an Amazon Prime documentary

A 10-minute documentary-style edit adapting existing footage to feature as part of an exhibition. As seen on Amazon Prime in the UK and US.

Creative Team

Producer: Stuart Semple
Director and Camera:
Amy Alicia, Georgie Devine
Editor: Mike Leigh Cooper

Background

Stuart Semple is a world-renowned artist, art supplies maker and public artist. He is a provocative force in bringing positive change through art.

Stuart contacted our co-founder Mike through a Facebook post exchange. The idea? To create a short documentary from footage filmed in 2018.

Challenges

This project had a short turnaround and a loose brief. Stuart handed the creative reins for the edit over to us. There was also a lot of extremely interesting and usable footage to sift through and curate.

We created a viable plan to share with Stuart, as well as daily updates. This meant he could suggest changes as we progressed with the video.
