Sometimes, a project serves a greater purpose than the story alone. Passion projects, unshackled by the limitations of a specific brief, often give us the opportunity to delve into the unexplored, dipping our toes into the pool of possibilities.

Uninhibited by anyone saying “wait, Jelley, that might be a pretty ridiculous idea” our resident cinematographer took it upon himself to find out what would happen when you combine a £2000 mirrorless camera, and a £25,000 anamorphic lens. Because well, why not!

The film itself covered the hard-hitting areas of immigration and cultural acceptance, at a time when Brexit and Euroscepticism was at the forefront of mealtime conversation. Having a long-standing friendship with Nik, our subject, meant that Lewis was able to get intimate access to his home life, providing a real insight into the toils and tribulations facing him on an everyday basis.

Be sure to read the full account of his anamorphic adventures.
