Monsters: Dark Continent

GVFilm have just completed a  range of promotional interviews with director Tom Green and his mixing staff in Berlin, to promote the Dolby Atmos technology used in the creation of the creature feature sequel from Vertigo releasing “Monsters: Dark Continent”.


To publicise the Home Entertainment release of the Number One film “Divergent”, GVFilm teamed up with Fetch Publicity and reality tv star and model ‘Amy Willerton’ for an exciting stunt at London’s iconic O2 Arena. Amy was to emulate an exciting scene in the film that includes a perilous zip wire stunt. After a perilous ascent high winds made the descent to dangerous. However the stunt made headlines in the press and pushed the Entertainment One release to the top of the charts. All the action of the day can be seen on the promotional video that was filmed and edited by the GVFilm crew. GVFilm also supplied press with film footage on the day.

The Hip Priests – ‘Vodkacoma Casanova’

GVFilm were commissioned by bass player and band leader ‘Lee Love’ of ‘The Hip Priests’ to film a music promo for their upcoming release ‘Black Denim Blitz’.
The band had the idea of filming in a cramped spot – and they succeeded by finding the tiniest toilet cubicles they could at the infamous Pipeline Bar in London.
Directed by Baron Von Strange and DOP Dan Poole, the promo was shot on the tiny ‘digital 16mm’ Blackmagic pocket cinema camera and edited and graded at GVFilm.

Vodkacoma Casanova is the lead single of the album which is out on Ghost Highway records in Europe and Selfdestructo records/Strange Magic/AM Vinyl records in the USA.

We recently completed a third promotional video for the band ‘Lucifer Star Machine’, just before their headlining tour of Europe. Shot at ‘The Pipeline’ in London, we hope it captures the raw chaos of their live shows.

Dolby Atmos: Olympic Studios

GVFilm recently visited the superb luxury cinema ‘Olympic Studios’ in Barnes, to film a case study about the newly installed Dolby Atmos system.

It was also a chance for DOP Dan Poole and Director Jeremy Shaw to film using a newly purchased Blackmagic pocket camera in low light conditions on a quick turnaround.
The studios are famed for their exquisite sound quality, and the cinema turns a visit to the ‘flicks’ into an event.

Lucifer Star Machine: ‘Dead And Gone’

In a break from the norm, GVFilm recently filmed and produced a set of music promos for the London based ‘trailer trash poets’ Lucifer Star Machine for their new album ‘Rock ‘n Roll Martyrs’.

The first single ‘Dead And Gone’ can be seen below, and the album has been picking up rave reviews around the globe. 

“Rock’n’Roll” Martyrs will be released worldwide through I SOLD MY SOUL MEDIA on 27/09/2013.

Boy Nobody

For the Orchard Books release of the novel,  Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff, GVFilm were asked to create a fast paced, thrilling trailer to appeal to young adult readers, but without giving away too much of the mysterious and surprisingly hard edged story of a teenage assassin.

We scripted, filmed, directed and scored the book trailer, which is part of a wider campaign planned with PR agency Fetch Publicity and stars actor Tom Clarke Hill, (Batman: Arkham City, Sniper Elite) and features model and presenter Lora Leigh (Metal Hammer, Front Magazine).

Boy Nobody is the first in a planned series and the film rights have already been optioned by Sony Pictures with Jayden Smith in the frame as the title character.

The Dark

We are excited to reveal the UK trailer for ‘The Dark’. The new children’s book by acclaimed author Lemony Snickert and illustrated by Jon Klassen.
The Trailer was shot, animated and produced by the team at GVFilm and it features a narration by GVFilm hero Neil Gaiman.
“Creating this trailer was a joy, the team at Orchard were great, and our little actors were amazing” says GVFilm Director Jeremy Shaw

The Guardian has featured the trailer in their book section here, and Neil Gaiman himself tweeted about the release.



The Dark is out on Orchard Books 3rd April 2013.


We have been hard at work on trailers for an exciting new book series, ‘MetaWars’ by Jeff Norton for Hachette Children’s books.

Check out the website at and the first two trailers below. Whose side are you on?
