Charley’s new commercial for MCB hits 4 million views

Charley Stadlers touching new commercial for MCB has hit over 4 million views online. The commercial tells a beautiful story about the friendship between a grandpa and his granddaughter. Charley said; We shot in Moscow, the budget was extremely tight and it was an interesting job to work on because everyone was under 30, the DOP just graduated, the stylist is 22, the casting director 23 etc. Overall I’m very happy with the film and the reaction it has been getting is great.

Sammy was recently working on matte paintings for the BBC Olympics opening cinematic ‘Trail’ with the amazing team at Painting Practice in London. You can see one of the images above, to see more please go to http://assembly.ie/portfolio/items/sammy-khalid/
This is what Sammy had to say about the job; I had the great pleasure of collaborating with the team at Painting Practice on the trailer for BBC Sport Rio Olympics 2016, with both Rafael Martin and Justin Hutchinson-Chatburn as Art Directors.
The work features a range of animals preparing for the Games before they transform into their heroic and spectacular human athlete counterparts. I created the environmental concepts and the finished matte paintings. It was a great project to work on.
