Capture the Moment

Photography & Art Direction

We understand the importance of great stills and whilst we can take pretty good images from all of our film cameras; we would recommend investing in the photography as a separate element. Film days are often long and time-consuming, and to throw photography in the mix, can take away from the filming.

Knowing your requirements from the outset with film and photography allows us to conceptualise the visuals from the outset. Working the two side by side allows us to create moving and still images that work in harmony with each other, across all of your marketing campaigns.

We have a handful of photographers that can deliver all your photography needs, to sit alongside your video requirements, whether that’s corporate head shots; product photography; event stills or fashion and lifestyle shots. We can also supply make-up artists and stylists too.

Jo has a strong editorial style and works with clients from concept, through production and retouching, to supply of the finished imagery. Jo has a talent for creating striking portraiture photography, which really demonstrates her passion for strong lighting.

Art Direction

Our people are passionate about all things film and design related, that’s why our combination videos of film combined with motion graphics work so well. We’ve got the design fundamentals right.

At Soup we have two Creative Directors, which some might say is a clashing of two heads but not at Soup. Stewart is our Creative Director of Film & Moving Image, whilst Garan, is Creative Director of Graphics and Animation. The two work collaboratively on every project, with one taking the lead depending on the most prominent skill set. Their creative vision is unique to each project, and have input at every stage of the process, from scripting and storyboards, set design and wardrobe; to visual effects and music.
