Brief

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.

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.

 

Results

  • Made available for streaming on Amazon Prime UK and US
    Formed part of Dancing on My Own: Selected Works – Stuart’s exhibition at Bermondsey Art Space in London, UK
