CHRISTMAS CRACKERS

Santa's just around the corner, and so are the results of the last few months of hard work here at Phaebus. We've been busy little Elves this year creating a whole host of DVD's, Blu-rays and TV Ad crackers ready for Christmas release.

Here's just a few we've delivered: TV campaigns for the new Asterix Film; The Mansions of the Gods, starring Jack Whitehall, Nick Frost, Greg Davies and a whole bundle of big names. Some more TV Ads you're sure to see will be for the new Kickboxer Vengeance DVD & Blu-ray, Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and David Bautista. 

We're currently finishing the 1st ever Blu-ray release of 'La Bamba' (the classic film biography of Ritchie Valens, starring Lou Diamond Phillips), which will be coming soon after Christmas and we have just finished the Blu-ray disc for 'Call of Heros', Benny Chan's latest Kung Fu Epic. The 6 part series 'No Second Chance' has been keeping us very busy lately and is definitely one to watch out for (currently on Netflix NOW!). The adaptation of the French Thriller by Harlan Coben will be released as a DVD box set next year and it is seriously good! But we won't spoil it for you.

We want to say a HUGE thank you to all our lovely clients this year. It's been a blast working with you and we're already excited and looking forward to projects we have in the pipeline for next year. Thanks again and here's to another great year!

Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year to One & All. Eat, drink & be merry and we'll see you all in 2017.

GOING UP!

The new DVD box set of 'Grace & Favour' is now in all stores! 

Yours truly were kindly commissioned by Eureka Video to create the DVDs of the BBC sequel series to 'Are You Being Served?'. From encoding the source material and designing the menus to implementing all the features and even subtitles!... It was a great journey through classic BBC sitcom history.

Speaking of history... We've recently been having a clearout at the Phaebus offices. The amount of old media equipment and technology we have floating around the basement really shows how long we've been in the business! For all the editors out there, here're some images of the old Avid Symphony Suite we've had lying around. Is there a market for 'Retro' Post Production equipment?

BUSINESS AS USUAL

It's been a funny few weeks in little England but the Phaebus team has been busy as always through it all.

Back in April, we launched a new TV campaign for Wynsors World of Shoes. They were looking for a new creative for the new year and so we got to work forming some new ideas. After going and having a look at their new store fittings and displays we landed on a simple but stylish 'Fashion Lookbook' design. The style of the product itself leads each section with composition and font choice matching said product and helping it really stand out whilst adding to its personality. Wynsors have now also widened their airtime to include ITV video on demand so you're sure to catch one. The 3rd Ad in the campaign airs today and you can have a look at previous Ads from this year over on our youtube page.

Since the start of the year, the DVD department has also been hard at it putting together a long list of new titles for various clients, along with a few trailers and TV campaigns including a big action blockbuster starring Bruce Willis! News on all those projects to come soon!
