WHAT THEY WANTED
With a stack of high profile professionals lined up to feature, The Independent required a set of films with these industry influencers who could inspire a generation on how to take their dreams and turn them into reality. The series on ‘Inspiring Careers’ was to be presented by award-winning entrepreneur Jessica Elliott, who would speak to these individuals at the top of their game to find our how you can get their dream job.
WHAT WE DID
Filmed in a location house in East London across a single day, we captured nine interviews to create this educational set of films for online use.
Interviews included Sky Sports Presenter Charlie Webster, Comedian Simon Evans, Restaurant Entrepreneur Garreth Wood and British Broadcaster Dermot Murnaghan. Amongst this talented bunch was also Contemporary Artist Lincoln Towney, who talks of how he fell into a life of addiction in Soho, but never lost sight of his dream to find a career as an artist. Now a celebrated international contemporary portrait artist, and BAFTA’s Artist in Residence in Los Angeles, he paints a host of glittering Hollywood A-listers from Al Pacino to Quentin Tarantino, in his now trademark style. The incredibly inspiring and motivating interview can be seen above.
So take note people, be inspired and like this clever lot – never give up!
