The Tunnel

Salute

Just in time for the Olympics, GVFilm have finished work on the UK Theatrical trailer for ‘Salute’.

Released by UK distributor,  Arrow films. The film will be released on DVD and VOD shortly after its run in UK Cinemas.

The picture of the three men on the winner’s podium after the men’s 200 meters final at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics is still considered one of the most powerful images in modern history. Salute tells the true story behind this iconic image, the story of American athletes Tommie Smith, John Carlos and the Australian silver medallist Peter Norman – three Olympic competitors who, in one peaceful but inflammatory moment of political protest as they received their medals on the podium at the 1968 games in Mexico City, would destroy their sporting careers and become a seminal and enduring symbol of the Civil Rights struggle.

King Of Devil’s Island

The Nordic Noir / Arrow Films label commissioned GVFilm to create a hard hitting Theatrical trailer for the Hit Norwegian movie ‘King Of Devil’s Island’, in Cinemas July 2012.

A blend of Scum and Papillon set on a snowy Norwegian island and based on a true story. Brutally run by Stellan Skarsgård’s Bestyreren, Bastoy, a school for “maladjusted young boys”, has all the familiar cruelties – abuse, lice inspections, solitary confinement and a diet of raw fishheads. But when the hulking Erling (Benjamin Helstad) arrives, the boys have a new hero and one senses rebellion might not be far off.

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part One

During this years Mother’s day weekend several different agencies and companies, came together to produce a Digital Out Of Home Integrated Social Media Campaign for EOne’s Home Entertainment release of the blockbuster Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part One.

It saw the ‘Glow’ screen at Blue-water (operated by media and screen owner Ram Vision),  being dominated by Breaking Dawn; announcing its availability, highlighting the trailer and pack shots and sending passers-by to the HMV store within the centre. Beyond that, shoppers were encouraged to send tweets to their mums through the screen, which showed the messages in real time over the weekend.

GVFilm’s Jeremy Shaw notes, “GVFilm has always had a great time working on Entertainment One licences as they are committed to creating the best promotional activity for their titles. Naturally when asked to produce an exciting and eye catching campaign for, ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’, we turned to our friends at GrandVisual who have an incredible track record with innovative OOH campaigns.’”

Online industry entertainment site, ‘The Raygun’ wrote about the campaign on this link.
